Between July 1 and September 30, Hyatt is offering 2,500 Aeroplan miles per Hyatt stay. Registration is required. This is five times the normal number of miles earned, and you can earn this bonus a maximum of 10 times (for a total of 25,000 Aeroplan miles).
While Aeroplan’s award chart will soon be devalued somewhat, Aeroplan miles are still worth somewhere around two cents each, so you’re looking at about $50 worth of value in miles per stay.
Hyatt lets you earn either miles or points for any given stay, and you have to state your preference for miles at check-in by giving them your Aeroplan number if that’s your earning preference.
While you miss out on base points by choosing miles, you’re still eligible for the Diamond welcome amenity bonus, and if applicable, the 2,500 point Diamond bonus if a club lounge is closed on a weekend. While it’s not relevant at the moment since Hyatt isn’t running any “Gx” bonuses, you can’t earn those when you choose miles as your earning preference.
Anyway, in the absence of any other promotion or “Gx” bonuses, this is a great option for Hyatt stays over the next few months now that their second quarter promotion is over.
