The Points Guy had something on 27/11/19 (sorry, can’t post the link at the moment) about non-stay purchases (cup of coffee) being credited by some Hyatt properties into your account. However, TPG is very USA-centric, so this may not work in Oz. And doesn’t work at all USA properties either, it seems.
Go to the Hyatt hotel and have a meal and use your membership number. I took my team out last Friday and spent a small fortune and was pleasantly surprised to see around 5k extra points in the account.
If you can getup to 5000 points you can redeem them on a cheap hotel.
I think this would work....booked a cash and points reward night in December 2020 with 2500 points + $. According to Ts and Cs , redemption counts as activity The cash component is only charged by the hotel when you check out....so I can cancel the stay deep into next year with return of my 2500 points
My points expire at end of this month too but Hyatt screwed me around so much getting points credited properly after my last 3 stays that I have given up on them. Just not worth my time explaining their errors to them
