Hyatt just announced the launch of their Q2 promo for 2013, with the name “More Possibilities, More Points.” Gold Passport members can earn 3,000 Hyatt Gold Passport bonus points after every three eligible nights at any Hyatt hotel worldwide from March 1 – May 31, 2013, up to a total of 45,000 possible bonus points.
Hyatt Visa cardmembers will receive a 20% point bonus on top of that – so 600 more bonus points after every three nights and a total possible points haul of 54,000 bonus points total.
To register, call 1-800-228-3360 starting February 15, 2013, or register via the specific promotion link which will be available on that date (and which I will post then). Registration will end April 30, 2013.
3,000 bonus points per 3 nights isn’t anything to be over the moon about – after all, you’d need to stay 24 nights to get up over the 22,000-point level for Hyatt’s top-tier properties, but this is still more lucrative than Starwood’s current Power Up Points promo where you earn just 2,000 bonus Starpoints for every four eligible nights and up to a total of 8,000 bonus Starpoints on 16 nights (though you can earn an additional 10,000 bonus Starpoints for reaching 20 total eligible nights). Right now I’m digging Hilton’s current Double Your HHonors Promotion the most – I selected Virgin Atlantic as my double dip then transferred at 2:1 to Hilton to maximize my points.
Like many Gold Passport members, I long for the days of Hyatt’s super-lucrative promos like the Stay 2 Get 1 Free, but to be honest, I don’t think we’ll ever see that again from Hyatt. Even after the introduction of the Chase Sapphire Reserve, the Chase Sapphire Preferred is still a fantastic choice if you want to avoid the Reserve’s $450 annual fee, earn 2x on all travel & dining and earn a 50,000 point sign up bonus.
