Take Away

Hyatt 40% bonus on points purchase is as good a public offering I have seen, I would recommend buying with a specific use in mind. Since the purchase is processed by points.com , use a credit card that gives you best return on everyday spend. This transaction will not code as travel or hotel spend.  If you want to redeem at lower category properties, there are some hidden gems in Cat 1-3 groups. Some categories have changed in recent past, but here are some good resources for the hidden gems;
