We’re excited to announce details of the Hyatt Gold Passport promotion! Starting 4/1, members who stay 5 eligible nights at any Hyatt worldwide will earn 10,000 bonus points, plus an extra 5,000 bonus points for every 2 additional eligible nights through 6/30. Starting on 3/31, visit goldpassport.com to register. If you have any questions, please let us know.
For the average guest, this is the same thing as the Great 10K, which was their fourth quarter promotion last year. They basically only redistributed when you earn the points.
Hey, at least we have something. I doubt anyone will be especially impressed by the promotion, but then again, Hyatt really doesn’t need to impress on the promotion front right now, as they have a great loyalty program with excellent in-hotel benefits, and none of the other chains have any compelling promotions. The biggest frustration here is the lack of “G” bonuses for stays, which often translated to an extra 1,500-2,000 points per stay. Also, while they originally said the promotion would launch in March, I guess it’s actually April.
Look, Hyatt’s awesome and this is a fine promotion. I just feel like it was drawn out a bit too much, which naturally raises expectations. Basically, the past few weeks have been like watching the Food Network while at the gym right before dinner time.
