Hyatt’s last promotion expired on November 18, 2016. It was an average promotion which I took part and manage to score 5000 bonus points.
Since then World of Hyatt (pun intended) has drastically changed. On March 1, Hyatt Gold Passport has been retired, and a new program that is World of Hyatt has replaced the previous one.
Hyatt’s latest promotion is called “Double points for being you.”
You can register for the promotion here
Under this promotion World of Hyatt members will earn double points on eligible stays between April 1 and June 30, 2017. We all know that Hyatt is one of the premium hotel chains out there and everyone appreciated their promotions in the past.
Remember the following:-
1. You earn your points from 2nd stay not the first. So if you are staying multiple nights, I recommend you make a separate booking from 2nd night onwards. It is a stay and not a night.
Stay is considered as one booking.
Nights are amount of nights you spent for that stay.
2. You only earn for the room you are staying in. So you don’t get bonus points if you are staying with your family and have bought 2 more rooms for them.
How good is Hyatt’s double points promotion?
World of Hyatt members ordinarily earn five base points per dollar spent, meaning that during this promotion members will earn 10 points per dollar spent, starting with their second stay. On top of that, you can earn more points if you’re an elite member (the numbers below are starting with your second stay):
- Discoverist members will earn 10.5 points per dollar spent (10% bonus on base points)
- Explorist members earn 11 points per dollar spent (20% bonus on base points)
- Globalist members earn 11.5 points per dollar spent (30% bonus on base points)
Other ways to earn free nights at Hyatt hotels
Keep in mind that in addition to just earning points, there are other ways members can earn free nights through the World of Hyatt program:
- World of Hyatt Globalist members got a free night valid at any Hyatt hotel when the program was launched
- Each year you get a free Category 1-4 night when you qualify for Explorist status, and a free Category 1-7 night when you qualify for Globalist status
- You get a free Category 1-4 night after staying at five Hyatt brands, and another free Category 1-4 night after staying at another five Hyatt brands.
India has Hyatt, Park Hyatt, Hyatt Regency, Grand Hyatt, Hyatt Place and Andaz.
What do I feel about this promotion?
I value Hyatt points at 99 paise each. There are no bonus check-in points and hence there is not much you can make out this promotion.Unless there is a makeshift difference, I am not staying at Hyatt’s property for considerable future.
Luckily, for Hyatt, Marriott and SPG global promotion will expire on April 15, 2017. So if any opportunist who would like to make most of their promotion would get the opportunity to mark some stays at Hyatt.
