Hyatt has been industry leading with their promotions recently- with multiple rounds of Faster Free Nights (one free night for every two stays), I thought for sure they’d take a breather.

Instead, they’ve stepped up their airline bonuses, encouraging members to bank to airline accounts instead of Hyatt points. Below is a list of current promotions and their eligible dates. These are retroactive, so if you’ve missed out, contact Hyatt to get credit. The great thing is that most of these bonuses are per night, unlike most hotel promotions which are based on stays.
