Hyatt is offering 500 bonus Gold Passport points if you make your next booking through the Hyatt app. The promotion is valid for stays booked and consumed between September 1 and November 30, 2016. All Hyatt family hotels are eligible for the promotion, though MGM Mlife properties aren’t. Each Gold Passport member can qualify for this promotion once at most.
To qualify for this promotion you must book an “eligible rate,” which includes paid stays and Points + Cash stays, though doesn’t include free night stays.
There’s no registration required, and bonus points should automatically post within 2-3 weeks of when the stay is completed. This can of course be stacked with Hyatt’s current More Points More Play promotion, offering up to 75,000 bonus points after 25 nights.
I contacted Hyatt to confirm the promotion was open to everyone, and here’s what they said regarding the reason behind the promotion:
The reason for the promotion is that we recently launched a new mobile app (make sure to update your app if you haven’t already). In addition to a complete visual redesign and all the preexisting features, the new app puts guests in the driver’s seat from pre-arrival through departure:
- Users can now see helpful information such as their room number and up-to-date charges for their stay at any time.
- Guests can use the app to choose Facebook Messenger or Twitter (and text message, for participating properties) to get in touch with Hyatt in real time.
- A new mobile guest requests feature allows travelers to request items through the mobile app such as towels, toothpaste, shampoo and many more!
- Guests can choose to expedite their arrival and departure experiences through the mobile app with Online Check-in and Express Checkout.
I’ll certainly be making my next Hyatt booking through their app! This is very similar to the promotion Hyatt offered around the same time last year, where you could also earn 500 bonus points for booking through their app.
