Registration for Hyatt’s new fall promotion is now open so be sure to register if you have any upcoming Hyatt stays. Earlier this month, I talked about the details including my take on it. Depending on the number of nights you stay, you earn an extra 1,000-1,857 extra points per night (20% bonus if you have the Hyatt credit card), starting at the 5-night threshold. You must register by October 31 and stay at any Hyatt hotel worldwide from September 1 – November 30.
To recap, here’s how the numbers break down:
Stay Bonus Total Bonus Points Earned
5 Nights 5,000 bonus points 5,000
10 Nights 10,000 bonus points 15,000
15 Nights 10,000 bonus points 25,000
20 Nights 10,000 bonus points 35,000
25 Nights 10,000 bonus points 45,000
30 Nights 10,000 bonus points 55,000
35 Nights 10,000 bonus points 65,000
On top of these bonuses, remember, if you have the Hyatt credit card, you’ll earn 20% more bonus points– an additional 1,000 after your first five nights and 2,000 bonus points for every five nights after that. So if you completed all 35 nights, you’d earn a total of 78,000 bonus Gold Passport points.
While this promotion doesn’t have me jumping for joy, I definitely think it’s doable to rack up a fair amount of bonus points through it, and it’s nice to see Hyatt keeping the bonus-earning formula simple, as opposed to the multitude of options Starwood Preferred Guest Members had to sort through with the SPG Nice Choice promotion this summer. I also think the 20% bonus for Chase Hyatt Visa cardholders is a small ray of light, and another feature of the card that will keep it in my wallet for some time to come – as does the fact that I get an additional 3 Hyatt points per dollar spent at Hyatt.
