There’s finally some good news from World of Hyatt! While Hilton, IHG, Marriott, SPG, etc., have each offered multiple global points promotions this year, Hyatt hasn’t been as generous. Hyatt’s last global promotion was between April 1 and June 30, and that was the only major promotion they offered this year. Hyatt is finally back with another offer.
Hyatt is offering double points through the end of the year
World of Hyatt is offering double points for all stays between November 15 and December 31, 2017. Registration is required by November 30, 2017, at worldofhyatt.com/doublepoints, and eligible stays must be booked via hyatt.com or Hyatt’s mobile app. Bonus points should post 2-3 weeks after the completion of a stay.
Previously booked stays qualify (as long as they’re consumed during the promotion period), and M life stays qualify as well, as long as bookings are made through Hyatt.
World of Hyatt members ordinarily earn five base points per dollar spent, meaning that through this promotion members will earn an additional five points per dollar spent. I value Hyatt points at ~1.5 cents each, meaning that an extra five points is the equivalent of an incremental return of 7.5% on Hyatt spend.
Globalist members ordinarily earn 6.5 points per dollar spent, meaning that through this promotion they earn 11.5 points per dollar spent. For Globalist members that’s a return of 17%+ on spend.
While I wish we’d see some sort of an original promotion, this is certainly better than nothing, and a nice development for Hyatt.
Hyatt also has an Exhale partner offer
Recently Hyatt acquired Exhale, which is a wellbeing brand. This is part of Hyatt’s strategy of expanding beyond the traditional hotel market and adding other lifestyle brands. So far not much has been done to integrate Exhale, and they haven’t participated in World of Hyatt in any way. As a first step to introducing World of Hyatt members to Exhale, there’s a special offer for World of Hyatt members to experience the brand and better understand what Exhale services they might find most valuable.
From November 15, 2017, through February 28, 2018, World of Hyatt members who are new Exhale customers can buy a $30 “Week of Wellbeing” package, which includes unlimited fitness classes, 20% off spa therapies, and 10% off wellbeing boutique purchases. This is valid at Exhale locations in Atlanta Midtown, Boston Battery Wharf, Boston Back Bay, Dallas, Miami Downtown, Miami Bal Harbour, and Miami South Beach.
On top of that, over the same dates World of Hyatt members can save $10 off a fitness class or $25 off a 60 or 90 minute spa therapy at participating locations. This requires providing a promotion code upon check-in.
Maybe some will find this promotion valuable.
I’m thrilled to see Hyatt once again offering a bonus points promotion for hotel stays. Here’s to hoping that 2018 is a better year for World of Hyatt than 2017 was, with lots of promotions.
