Last week I first shared the details of Hyatt’s new “Stay More Play More” promotion, which is their first global Gold Passport promotion since last summer. The promotion is valid for stays between April 1 and June 30, 2016.
It’s worth noting that registration is now open for the promotion. You actually only have to register before June 30 (as opposed to having to register prior to the first eligible stay), but I’d still recommend registering as soon as possible so you don’t forget.
As a reminder, this promotion is offering up to 75,000 bonus Gold Passport points, thanks to the tiered bonus structure, which looks as follows:
- Earn 5,000 bonus points after 5 nights
- Earn 15,000 bonus points after 10 nights
- Earn 30,000 bonus points after 15 nights
- Earn 50,000 bonus points after 20 nights
- Earn 75,000 bonus points after 25 nights
75,000 points is enough for three free nights at the Park Hyatt Maldives
If you max out the promotion you earn 75,000 bonus points after 25 nights, which is 3,000 bonus points per night. I value Hyatt points at ~1.5 cents each, so to me that’s like a return of ~$45 per night. That’s a really compelling value, especially since all Hyatt hotels participate in all global promotions.
In terms of general promotion terms to be aware of:
- All properties, including Las Vegas M Life properties, are eligible for the promotion
- Bonus points should post within two to three weeks of a qualifying stay
- Any stay which is eligible for elite qualifying stays would qualify for the promotion, including Points + Cash rates
- Stays booked prior to the start of the promotion are eligible, as long as you’re staying during the promotion period
Points + Cash stays count towards the promotion, which is how I stayed at the Park Hyatt Vienna
The full terms of the promotion are as follows:
You must be a Hyatt Gold Passport® member and register for the Stay More Play More promotion by June 30, 2016. To join Hyatt Gold Passport, visit goldpassport.com. All Eligible Nights under this offer must occur from April 1, 2016 through June 30, 2016 (“Offer Period”). You will receive 5,000 Hyatt Gold Passport bonus points after you complete five Eligible Nights, an additional 10,000 Hyatt Gold Passport bonus points after you complete 10 Eligible Nights, an additional 15,000 Hyatt Gold Passport bonus points after you complete 15 Eligible Nights, an additional 20,000 Hyatt Gold Passport bonus points after you complete 20 Eligible Nights, and an additional 25,000 Hyatt Gold Passport bonus points after you complete 25 Eligible Nights during the Offer Period. A maximum 75,000 bonus points may be earned, regardless of the number of nights completed during the Offer Period. For the purpose of this offer, an “Eligible Night” is defined as any night where a member is paying an Eligible Rate, as defined in the terms and conditions of Hyatt Gold Passport. Hyatt Gold Passport members will only receive Eligible Night credit for their room, regardless of the number of rooms paid. You must provide your Hyatt Gold Passport membership number at the time of check-in and choose points or miles for your stay. Hyatt Gold Passport will automatically track Eligible Nights when you provide your Hyatt Gold Passport membership number. Please allow two to three weeks after your qualifying stay for bonus points to be posted to your Hyatt Gold Passport account.
This is a fantastic promotion which is the best that we’ve seen from a major hotel chain in a while. If you max out this promotion you’re basically earning 3,000 bonus points per night, which I value at ~$45. That’s a heck of a bonus given that all properties are participating. Be sure you register for Hyatt’s promotion now, so you don’t forget later.
I know a lot of people wouldn’t normally be able to do 25 hotel nights over the course of three months, though I think this is a promotion where it could make sense to do some mattress running. I’ll share my thoughts on that in a future post.
Do you plan on maxing out Hyatt’s upcoming promotion?
