Last February, I spent 3 glorious nights at the Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta. And next month, I’ll spend another 4 nights there! For $0 out of pocket, I used:
- 131,088 Citi ThankYou points + 4th night free to save $1,721 on the hotel stay
- 4,000 American Airlines Business Extra points for $1,423 flights
- Citi Prestige annual travel credits to cover ~$187 in taxes and fees
The total cost would’ve been $3,331. And I used ALL my Citi ThankYou points.
But after slipping the Citi Prestige card back into my wallet this week, I can build up my balance with new 5X earning on airfare and dining. Plus, they’d been hanging around for a while.

Here’s how I put it together!
