Hotel occupancy is up, and that means promotions are rarer than they’ve been the past few years. Hyatt has targeted promotions for people to earn bonus points after a certain number of nights this Fall. Interestingly, there seems to be no logic to who/how Hyatt has targeted their Gold Passport members…or at least none that anyone has figured out yet.
I’m a Diamond member after recently completing the Diamond Challenge, never received an email about the promotion, and don’t have any nights (award or cash) booked the rest of the year…yet when I typed in my Gold Passport number for the 50K promo it accepted my registration. Reports are that other Diamond members have not been targeted, while many Platinums and non-elites have been. Click the links below to see if your account is targeted.
- 50K Points after 20 nights
- 10K points after 3 stays (10K max)
- 8K points after 2 stays (8K max)
- 2K points after one stay (6K max)
- 5K points after one stay (5K max)
- 2K points after one stay (4K max)
- 2K points after one stay (2K max)
Note that this promotion is also valid for cash and points bookings, so there’s some potential value if you have low-category hotels (or just cheap ones) in a convenient location to you.
I’m an SPG Platinum, Hilton Diamond, IHG Platinum, and Hyatt Diamond member. Top-tier Hyatt status is new to me this year, and I must say that I’ve enjoyed it very much. It’s not just the benefits like extra points and great customer service, but the free full breakfast option and the nice rooms are really winning me over. I’ll have a decision to make the next few years as to whether I want to retain SPG or Hyatt status, but I’d say giving Hyatt a shot is a good idea.
Note that ideally you should stack the Hyatt Diamond Challenge with the 50K promo, which Ariana at Point Chaser explains in this post. Doing so would mean you can end up with a large heap of points that you can use at hotels like the Park Hyatt Sydney (review coming soon) or the Park Hyatt Tokyo.
