    Over time it's pretty standard for hotel loyalty programs to raise the number of points required for a free night redemption. This is done in one of two ways: -- Adjusting which hotels belong in which categories. Hotel chains typically have somewhere between a handful and a dozen "categories" of properties, which determine the price of a redemption. In many cases we simply see more hotels creeping into higher categories. For example, a Hyatt hotel could switch from a Category 6 property (25,000 points per night) to a Category 7 property (30,000 points per night). -- Changing the number of points required for a free night in a given category. Rather than changing which category a hotel belongs in, we also sometimes see loyalty programs change the number of points required for a redemption in a given category. For example, in 2014 we saw the cost of a Hyatt Category 6 redemption go from 22,000 points per night to 25,000 points per night. Anyway, the good news is that hotel loyalty programs typically give considerable advance notice of these changes, so you can redeem your points at the "old" rates before any changes occur.
