Meanwhile Hyatt shared a while back that they’ll be announcing their next global promotion on January 12. While they’ve been slow to reveal the details, they sure have been hyping the promotion quite a bit through social media.
Well, it looks like Hyatt decided to release the promotion details a bit early, as Hyatt has now unveiled the details of their Stay More Play more promotion.
Hyatt’s Stay More Play More promotion is valid for stays between January 15 and April 30, 2015, and it’s a targeted promotion, so different members will receive different offers based on their stay patterns.
Visit the Stay More Play More promotion page to find out which promotion you were targeted for.
I’ve been targeted for what’s actually a very lucrative promotion, I think. I can earn:
- 30,000 bonus points after 15 nights
- 15,000 bonus points after an additional five nights
- 20,000 bonus points after an additional five nights
In all, I can earn 65,000 bonus points after 25 nights, which is an average of 2,600 bonus points per night. I value Hyatt Gold Passport points at ~1.5 cents each, so to me that’s like a reward of ~$40 per night, which is pretty darn good.
I’ll have no problem at all reaching that threshold, given that I live in hotels. And it is indeed slightly more lucrative for me on a per night basis than the last several promotions we’ve seen, which offered 50,000 bonus points after 20 nights.
Meanwhile an account of a friend that hasn’t credited a stay to Hyatt in the past year offers 2,000 bonus points after the next stay at any Hyatt worldwide. While not all that rewarding, that’s a low threshold, so for the occasional guest it’s actually not a bad option.
As usual, with Hyatt eligible stays include revenue nights and Points + Cash bookings, but not free night redemptions.
Registration for the promotion isn’t yet open. While there’s a link to register, the following error message pops up when you enter your Gold Passport number:
This Hyatt Gold Passport account number is not eligible to participate in this promotion.
Presumably that will be fixed in the coming days.
Based on my offer I’d consider this to be the best first quarter promotion, along with Club Carlson’s (though in general I have less of an interest in staying at Club Carlson properties than Hyatt properties). I’ll definitely be maxing this one out.
Which promotional offer were you targeted for, and how will this promotion impact your hotel stay decisions over the coming months?
