The Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort has posted the following on their Facebook wall:
COMING SOON!!! – Hyatt Gold Passport proudly introduces, “The Great 10K” promotion, which will run Sept. 15 thru Dec. 15, 2010. Members can earn 10,000 Hyatt Gold Passport bonus points after every 5 eligible nights. The number of bonus points a member can earn is UNLIMITED & bonus points DO NOT EXPIRE! http://goldpassport….hyatt.com/gp/en/offers/index.jsp
Well, we have been waiting for a Hyatt fourth quarter promotion. It sounds to me like the hotel leaked something a bit too early that they shouldn’t have. An average of 2,000 Gold Passport bonus points per night is actually a fairly generous promotion, but I know almost everyone is hoping for Hyatt’s “Faster Free Nights” promotion, whereby you earn one free night after every two nights. And frankly, such a promotion wouldn’t add any value for me, since I currently select airline miles for most of my Hyatt stays, which would make me ineligible for the bonus points.
Some say that “Faster Free Nights” is a Hyatt fourth quarter tradition, which it is, but I doubt they’re feeling much pressure to offer such a promotion this year given the lack of lucrative promotions offered by the competition.
So not definitively trying to say this is going to be their fourth quarter promotion, but it wouldn’t surprise me. If this is the case, something tells me “Faster Free Nights” will be back with the introduction of their new credit card.
Still crossing my fingers that they’ll have Faster Free Nights!
