For real?
That's what's being posted by 1 seller. No one (who isn't brand new or desperate) pays that for Hyatt. Hilton is pretty accurate. Marriott, depends, but I've gotten for .005.

Because the max annual transfer is 100k.  So even if, for example, I'd want to sell I can't transfer because I already did the 100k max for this year.  So I'm sure there may be many who would sell but can't transfer due to already reaching the limit.

fwiw..recent data points from churningmarketplace subreddit, blocks of 50k +

Marriott..offers 0.65, sellers 0.75 - 0.8

Hilton..  0.0035

Hyatt  0.018

Hilton is the only number here that is somewhat on target.

Most I've seen anyone pay for Marriott is .006, on average they go for .0055.

Any who would pay that for Hyatt???  You can even buy UR for less and transfer to Hyatt.

BP?
If yes then that was a poor rate since you can use it yourself to buy tickets at a value of 1.5+. They give back up to 500k points so you would need to have points in excess of ~1.43m for it to become less valuable than 1.5.
