Yesterday I wrote about Hyatt Gold Passport finally revealing the details of their first quarter 2015 promotion, entitled Stay More Play More. The promotion is valid for stays between January 15 and April 30, 2015, and there are several different versions of the offer which different members have been targeted for.
What are the different versions of the Stay More Play More promotion?
As I said above, different members have been targeted for different promotions. Based on the comments people left on yesterday’s post, some of the offers include the following:
- 2,000 bonus points after 1 night
- 5,000 bonus points after 2 stays
- 20,000 bonus points after 10 nights
- 50,000 bonus points after 20 nights
- 65,000 bonus points after 25 nights
Unlike with Marriott, there’s no easy way to change the promotion you’ve been targeted for. Personally I’m quite happy with the promotion for 65,000 points after 25 nights, since I’ll easily reach that threshold. And I assume the very occasional Hyatt guest would be happy with 2,000 points after one night.
But at the same time I know that these targeted promotions lead to frustration for some.
Register for the Stay More Play More promotion now
When I wrote about the promotion yesterday, I explained that while the promotion could be viewed, registration wasn’t yet open. Registration did finally open last night. While the promotion FAQs state that registration opens January 12, 2015, in practice you can already register.
When you go to the promotion page, enter your Gold Passport number and then click “Learn More” to see the promotion details.
Then on that page you’ll have to confirm your Gold Passport number again and hit “Register.”
That will bring you to a page which confirms you’re registered for the promotion.
I mention this because during past promotions you only had to enter your number once and hit one button in order to register, while here you have to hit two buttons to register.
Two most comment questions about the promotion
Since I’ve received these questions several times since yesterday alone, I figured I’d clarify them here:
- Do stays at M Life properties count towards this promotion? Yes.
- Do Points + Cash stays count towards this promotion? Yes.
Overall I’m very happy with my version of the offer. While it’s not as good as the old days of Faster Free Nights, it’s the best promotion I’ve received from Hyatt in the past two years, personally. And to me that’s pleasantly surprising, given that hotels don’t need loyalty programs as much as before to fill hotel rooms.
