World of Hyatt has been pretty light on global promotions lately, at least in comparison to their competitors. Their last major promotion was from November 15 through December 31, 2017, during which time they offered double points, which translates to five bonus World of Hyatt points per dollar spent.

Hyatt has just announced their first global promotion of 2018. Hyatt’s newest global promotion is called “More Bonus Points Night After Night,” and offers up to 25,000 bonus World of Hyatt points. The promotion is valid for stays between February 15 and May 15, 2018, and offers:

  • 500 bonus points per night at Hyatt Place & Hyatt House properties
  • 1,000 bonus points per night at all other brands (including MGM properties)

You can earn a maximum of 25,000 bonus points during the promotion period. Bonus points should post to eligible accounts within 2-3 weeks of a stay. Previously booked stays qualify, as long as you register for the promotion by March 31, 2018 (that’s the registration deadline).

Note that the promotion dates are based on your check-out date. That means that a stay checking in before February 15 but checking out after that date does qualify, while a stay checking in before May 15 but checking out after that date doesn’t qualify.

Personally I value World of Hyatt points at ~1.5 cents each, so I value this at a return of $7.50 per night at Hyatt Place and Hyatt House, and a return of $15 per night at Hyatt’s other brands. I’d consider this to be a solid promotion, especially given that you can start earning this with your first stay, and there are no thresholds you have to pass. A vast majority of members also won’t face any issues with the cap of 25,000 bonus points during the promotion period (which you’d max out after 25-50 nights, depending on the hotel).

As of this year Hyatt counts award stays as qualifying nights, so that means a free night redemption or a Points + Cash redemption would qualify for this promotion, and earn you 500-1,000 points per night.

I’d actually consider this to be a pretty solid promotion, especially for stays at properties that don’t cost too much. As a point of comparison, with Hyatt’s previous promotions you were earning five bonus points per dollar spent, meaning the breakeven point between that promotion and this is a $200 per night hotel stay (with the previous promotion being better for more expensive stays, and this one being better for cheaper stays).

While Hyatt has sometimes offered additional bonuses during promotions for those with The Hyatt Credit Card, they’re not doing so this time around. I’d still consider this to be an all around excellent card, given that it offers an annual free night certificate, Discoverist status for as long as you have the card, and more.

I’ll certainly take this promotion, especially now that Hyatt counts all award stays towards status.

What do you make of Hyatt’s promotion offering 500-1,000 bonus points per night?

  1. Sweet, have an award stay upcoming at Hyatt Zilara, very glad they made the change to award nights now. Thanks Lucky for this tip.

  2. The issue is that WoH, given the changes which made it quite unattractive, has made me switch to Hilton and SPG and I hold platinum for both. A big exit barrier for me and a lot of others I know, and therefore tough to take advantage, no matter how good the promo by WoH is!

  3. The 1K points /night return on the cheaper Mlife properties in Las Vegas could be pretty lucrative at times, especially since you can generally earn Hyatt stay credits on discounted Mlife/casino rates.

  4. You’re missing a critical piece of your analysis…. the cap! It’s easy to think the average price across Hyatt properties hits the $200 mark for the typical business traveler. So that being said, were getting the same or less points than the Q4 2017 promo, plus that promo didn’t have a cap! Hyatt… why don’t you want my business over 25 nights? I am LESS valuable at that point?

    Great promo for casual travelers to cheap properties, horrible for the business traveler with choice and a lot of nights to direct.

    All that said, I suppose I should say thanks for throwing a promo at us.

  5. Absolutely pathetic. They used to offer 75,000 points for 25 nights. Now it’s 25,000?
    Big ass promo this. Not even enough for one single night stay in their high category hotels.

  6. Does this apply to stays during that timeframe that are already booked (assuming you register for the promo)? Or do you have to both book and stay during the timeframe?

  7. @AMP, if you’re someone staying over 25 nights, there is a good chance you’re loyal to Hyatt. So they don’t need to continue offering bonus points beyond that.

  8. No points offer regardless of how lucrative would entice me back to WOH .I abandoned the program after the inexcusable and appalling customer service inflicted by Hyatt management . Following the transfer across from HyattGold Passport to WOH they ineptly lost all my points and status . After sending copies of every statement as proof they simply dismissed the issue as an IT glitch and would not reinstate my points or status .I now support Marriott/SPG and Hilton Honors ,Platinum and Diamond respectively and am extremely happy as my support is unconditionally respected unlike Hyatt .It is simply inconceivable the way I was treated when I did nothing wrong except tirelessly support. The error was entirely with WOH.

  9. @Paul, you’re a liar sir. There is no way Hyatt chalked it up as an IT glitch and then refused to reinstate your points. Do you work for Hilton or Marriott?

  10. What if you booked the stay through a third party website but you provided your world of Hyatt number, would you still receive points?

  11. I have a couple of comped room nights at the borgata in this time frame. i wonder if ill get credit the bonus.

  12. @Paul, why are you saying this kind of BS? Even their Hyatt’s FB page (customer service) would reinstate points when you just send the invoice of payment, in case it is not on their system yet, as I had to do once.

    So yeah, it seems you might be just an employee of another company
