Hyatt has just announced the details of their next promotion, which will be called More Points More Play. Registration for the promotion will become available starting September 1 (tomorrow), and it will be valid for stays through November 30, 2016. Through this promotion you can earn up to 75,000 bonus Gold Passport points after 25 eligible nights, as follows:
Stay: Earn: Total Points Earned:
5 Nights +5,000 Points =5,000
10 Nights +10,000 Points =15,000
15 Nights +15,000 Points =30,000
20 Nights +20,000 Points =50,000
25 Nights +25,000 Points =75,000
I’ll post again once the registration link is live tomorrow. I suspect they were in a rush to get the details out, given that Hilton, IHG, Marriott, and SPG, have all announced the details of their fourth quarter promotions.
This promotion might look familiar, because it’s identical to the promotion Hyatt ran between April 1 and June 30 of this year. All they did is modify the name of the promotion slightly, from “Stay More Play More” to “More Points More Play.”
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.
That’s the best promotion being offered by any hotel chain by far, assuming you’re planning on staying 25 nights during the promotion period, which admittedly is a lot over just a three month period. So this is great for road warriors, and not so great for the occasional traveler.
However, even for the occasional traveler this is better than what’s being offered by the competition in many instances. For example, you get 5,000 bonus points after five nights, which is an average of 1,000 bonus points per night. For members not staying at super expensive properties, that’s better than you’ll do with the promotions at Hilton or Marriott. The per night return through this promotion only gets better the more nights you stay.
I’ll post again tomorrow when registration is live.
75,000 points is enough for three nights at the Park Hyatt Maldives
