Hyatt’s latest points offer is a repeat of the bonus promotion in place earlier this year. For frequent travelers, that’s a good thing. For infrequent travelers, not so much.
Between September 1 and November 30, Gold Passport members can earn up to 75,000 bonus points for multiple stays, as follows:
- 5,000 bonus points after five nights
- 10,000 additional bonus points after 10 nights
- 15,000 additional bonus points after 15 nights
- 20,000 additional bonus points after 20 nights
- 25,000 additional bonus points after 25 nights
So in all, there’s the potential to earn a hefty 75,000 bonus points, but only after logging a hefty 25 paid nights.
Registration is required.
Deal or No Deal
Clearly, the offer is structured to disproportionately reward higher-frequency customers, with travelers earning 1,000 bonus points per night after five nights and an average of 3,000 bonus points per night after 25 nights.
The value of the promotion will thus depend on your ability to rack up multiple Hyatt nights during the three-month window. For those unable to log the entry-level five nights, the promotion is moot. For those who qualify at the lower thresholds (five or ten nights, say), the offer is decent if not compelling. And for those few who might be able to reach the 20- or 25-night thresholds, the offer is potentially a game-changer, a solid reason to make Hyatt their go-to hotel through June.
In other words, pay more, play more.
