With Memorial Day behind us, the unofficial summer season has started and Hyatt is celebrating with a new promotion. Unlike Starwood’s promo, which is consistent but generally underwhelming, Hyatt’s targeting Gold Passport members with different opportunities, likely based on their status and personal stay habits. Depending on your own bonus offer, it’s potentially a very lucrative promotion.

Sweet dreams are made of Hyatt. Who am I to disagree?

The Hyatt Summer “Sweet Dreams Sweet Rewards” promotion lets you earn Hyatt Gold Passport bonus points based on the number of nights you stay between June 1 and September 30. The promo does specify that it has to be an “eligible night,” meaning that the member has to pay an eligible rate. Nights at M life resorts do not count as eligible nights under this offer, for example. And Hyatt Gold Passport members will only receive eligible night credit for their room, regardless of the number of rooms booked and paid for during any given stay.

You have to provide your Hyatt Gold Passport membership number at the time of check-in and choose points or miles for your stay; the bonus points will be posted to your Hyatt Gold Passport account within three weeks of your stay.

According to the landing page for the most lucrative version of the “Sweet Dreams Sweet Rewards” promotion (65,000 total points), this is the breakdown of points you can earn:

Stay 25 eligible nights at any Hyatt hotel worldwide to earn 65,000 bonus points!
Stay 25 eligible nights at any Hyatt hotel worldwide to earn 65,000 bonus points!

However, when our editor signed up for the promotion, he received a different offer:

50,000 points total isntead of 65,000.
50,000 points total instead of 65,000.

We’ve heard of at least five levels being offered for this promotion — you can try registering at each of the links below:

Hyatt’s website does stipulate that “A maximum 65,000 bonus points may be earned, regardless of the number of nights completed during the Offer Period.”

So it seems to be that the offer varies by the minimum number of nights you need to stay to be eligible for the bonus points, and the number of points you can earn in total; let us know which one you got, or if you receive something else entirely!
