Hyatt announced the details of its second quarter “More Possibilities, More Points” promotion, and online registration is now open.

Per the terms of the promotion, 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 get an extra 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.

You can register starting now either online or by calling 1-800-228-3360. Registration will end April 30, 2013.

I’m still not that excited about this promo since you’d need to stay 24 nights just to rack up enough points to stay at a top-tier Category 6 property, but it’s still better 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).

Thanks to my new Hilton Diamond status, I’m currently taking advantage of Hilton’s Double Your HHonors Promotion for which I selected Virgin Atlantic as my double dip then transferred at 2:1 to Hilton to maximize my points.

I’ll probably stay at a few Hyatts during this promo to rack up a few extra points, but I still miss Hyatt’s old promos like the lucrative Stay 2 Get 1 Free from back in 2010. I don’t think we’ll ever see one like that again from Hyatt, though.
