    A few days back Hyatt unveiled online bookings for Cash + Points awards in its Gold Passport program. Those awards are now included in the Hotel Hustle search platform, including the ability to set alerts for such.

    The cash + Points info loads up just like any other search; if award space is available it will show in the results. If award space is not available the option to create an alert is presented:

    Do note that Cash + Points alerts are only available to First Class members on the site. Here’s what an email alert looks like when it triggers:

    A few bits of early search data show a wide range of values for the Cash + Points options as exposed online. Some are much worse than the straight points rate while others show as high as a 50% premium in point value using the C+P awards. More analysis to come as more data is collected but this award option looks to be even more valuable now that it can be searched online.
