Register For Hyatt’s Summer “Sweet Dreams Sweet Rewards” Promotion

This is turning out to be quite the day on the hotel front, both good and bad:

And it looks like Hyatt is keeping the momentum going, as they are sending out targeted emails for their summer promotion, entitled “Sweet Dreams… Sweet Rewards.” There are several versions of the offer and they seem to be sending out the promotion in batches, so just because you haven’t received an email doesn’t mean you won’t be targeted.

Hyatt-Promo

The promotion is valid for stays between June 1 and September 30, 2015.

I seem to be eligible for a promotion which is almost identical to the spring promotion I was targeted for.

Hyatt-Promo-1

Through this promotion I can earn:

  • 30,000 bonus points after 15 nights
  • 15,000 bonus points after 20 nights (for a total of 45,000 points)
  • 20,000 bonus points after 25 nights (for a total of 65,000 points)

To see which version of the promotion you’re eligible for, go to this page and enter your Gold Passport number. The confirmation page should show which version of the promotion you’re eligible for, if any. Upon registering I received the following message:

You are registered to earn 30,000 Hyatt Gold Passport® bonus points after your first 15 eligible nights at any Hyatt hotel worldwide and thousands more for every additional five nights you stay with us, up to 25, from June 1 through September 30, 2015.

GP-1

If I max out this promotion I earn 65,000 points after 25 nights, which is essentially a bonus of 2,600 Gold Passport points per night. I value Gold Passport points at ~1.5 cents each, so by my valuation that’s an additional bonus of ~$39 per night.

Given how full hotels are, I’d say that’s a pretty darn generous summer promotion.

Bottom line

In the past I wouldn’t have gotten too excited about this promotion, but I certainly had to recalibrate my expectations given the state of the hotel industry. I’d say this is a great summer promotion, and I’ll be sure to stay 25 nights at Hyatts this summer to max out the promotion. Between that and the “Sheraton Free Weekends” promotion, I’m quite excited!

And in general I feel quite rewarded by Hyatt this year:

What version of Hyatt’s summer promotion were you targeted for, if any? And how do you feel about it?

  1. Lucky, I typically don’t pay for my hotels so don’t pay much attention to promos…but I’m paying for my honeymoon at the Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos in October. This is more a general question than specific to this promotion (my stay dates are outside this promotion window):
    If my hotel is booked as a refundable rate prior to the start of a Hyatt promotion would I still get the bonus on the promotion?
    In this particular case, re-booking during the promo is likely not an option because of the great rate that I got back in December. I’m hoping for some other type of promo to come around prior to my stay… but only if it will apply to my previously booked room.

  2. Interesting; so does this stack with the HGP promotion with the refunded points for those with the Hyatt Chase card? Meaning those rooms booked with points + cash would earn bonus points though the promotion, but would also get the refunded points through the promotion with the credit card?

    For what it is worth, I got a technical error when I entered my passport number on the promotion page.

  3. When I tried to enter, I received an error statement.

    “An unexpected error has occurred while attempting to process your request. Please try again later. For assistance, please contact Hyatt Gold Passport Customer Service at 1-800-30-HYATT or your nearest Worldwide Reservation Center.”

  4. I received the same offer you did which is great because I already had 15 nights booked. Thus, I will get 30,000 points bonus as long as I keep my existing reservations.

    Before finding out my bonus promotion, I assumed that since Hyatt is targeting these promotions, they would make me stay at least five more nights to earn something, but fortunately, that is not the case.

    Hyatt is my favorite! If only they had more properties.

  5. @ Lucky – Got the same promotion as you. Have some stays with Hyatt already coming up but probably will do what I’d done to max out previous promotion — use BRG to get some very cheap rates at a local airport hotel 😉

  6. @ Steven K — no, Hyatt doesn’t work like that. You never get double night or double stay credit. Only Starwood allows that (up to three room).

  7. It appears this may stack with the 20% refund of points on a cash and points (eligible) rate. Not bad. My offer is 20,000 bonus on ten nights.

  8. I gotta say, I don’t think there’s anything generous at all about a promotion that requires 15 nights in a short period to earn anything.

  9. Got an e-mail earlier today:

    5 nights + 5,000 = 5,000 points
    10 nights +10,000 = 15,000 points
    15 nights +15,000 = 30,000 points
    20 nights +20,000 = 50,000 points

    Not as exciting as the Sheraton promotion, since SPG is my main hotel chain, but nice that I start earning a bonus after only five nights.

  10. Do stays that are booked as Hyatt Points + Cash count as an eligible stay for this promotion?

  11. @ Ben — You absolutely would. All that matters is when you stay and not when you book. Congrats on the honeymoon as well!

  12. @Haynes you are awesome! The 2nd link worked for me after the first didn’t. I got the 20 nights 50k bonus which is great b/c I actually have exactly 20 nights scheduled between now and beginning of August. This 50k help ease my mind on using some points to book a hotel that doesn’t have the best ROI but I would rather use points my abundance of points than cash. (Still thinking).

  13. Wow, they really don’t want my business…3k points for the first stay, not eligible for the other offers. Guess I’ll point my upcoming 17 night stay elsewhere!

  14. This stacked with the Elite Tier Offer and 20% refundrefund promopromotion makes this summer pretty nice.
