Hyatt released the details of its summer promo today and while not amazing, it’s still an interesting option. May 1 – August 31, Hyatt Gold Passport members can earn triple miles (instead of hotel points) with eight of the program’s airline partners including American and United after your second stay. Here are the registration pages for the individual participating airlines:

During the Promotion Period, complete two (2) Eligible Stays at any participating Park Hyatt, Andaz, Grand Hyatt, Hyatt Regency, Hyatt, Hyatt Place, Hyatt House, Hyatt Ziva, Hyatt Zilara or Hyatt Residence Club hotel and resort worldwide. Beginning with your second Eligible Stay, you will earn 1,000 bonus AAdvantage miles for every Eligible Stay, up to your fifteenth (15) Eligible Stay. Bonus miles are not awarded on your first Eligible Stay so you can earn bonus miles on up to fourteen Eligible Stays. Bonus miles are awarded in addition to the 500 base miles you can earn for each Eligible Stay. These miles are cumulative. A maximum of 7,500 base AAdvantage miles and 14,000 bonus AAdvantage miles may be earned during Promotion Period. Here’s how that breaks down per stay:

Screen Shot 2014-04-29 at 9.52.33 AMRemember that to earn miles with your stay, you need to give your frequent flyer number at check-in for eligible stays, and that by earning miles, you will not be earning Hyatt Gold Passport points.

Considering the maximum bonus you can earn is 14,000 miles – and that’s for 15 stays – and that this is stay-based rather than night-based, I have to say I’m pretty underwhelmed by this promo. I’d take double or triple Starpoints over this any day, so I’m sticking with Starwood and its promo this summer.

    I keep getting an “Invalid Promotion Code” error… But there is no promotion code.

  • Alexander Onishchenko

    um, surely better than nothing, but no, thank you.

  • Brett Holt

    I’m getting the same thing. It’s suppose to be wear you input your Gold Passport number, so I’m guessing there’s an error on Hyatt’s part.

  • Izzy

    Me too. Wonder if it goes live May 1

    I had the same problem and was advised by Hyatt to enter my airline miles account number.

    But that doesn’t work either so the other advice I had was to call their customer service and sign-up for it over the phone.

    Update: Just signed up via Hyatt customer service. The telephone number is: 1-800-228-3360. You’ll need both your Hyatt Gold Passport account number and your airlines awards/points account number.

    Not to be redundant but there appears to be a coding problem with the Hyatt web site. I notified Hyatt via Twitter and I presume they are looking into it. If you want to check this off your list now, see my thread below about doing it through Hyatt customer service.

    Are hotels busier in the summer so there’s less incentive to offer a good promo?

  • Allen

    Do you still get the 1000 points for the Diamond amenity if you select the miles option?
