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.

Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express

There’s no telling how much longer these cards will be around and available for new applications because of the Marriott takeover, so now might just be the perfect time to apply. Apart from hotel redemptions, you can transfer Starpoints to over 30 airline partners, and now also transfer points from Starwood to Marriott Rewards at a 1:3 ratio, opening up even more redemption options.
