If you have Hyatt stays planned this winter or spring, make sure you’re registered for World of Hyatt’s current suite of promotions.

Earlier this year, Hyatt kicked off its newest Bonus Journeys promotion, which offers 2,022 bonus points for every two qualifying nights. Furthermore, those with a World of Hyatt Credit Card can register to earn an additional 1,000 bonus points per eligible stay at participating hotels. But you’ll have to act quickly: registration ends March 15, 2022.

The hotel group is also running a sale on cash rates, where you can save up to 25% on cash rates at select hotels when you book by March 22, 2022.

Let’s take a closer look at these promotions and how you can use them to maximize future Hyatt stays.

Private Sale

When booking by March 22, 2022, World of Hyatt members can save 25% on the standard rate worldwide for qualifying stays in April and May.

If you book at an international World of Hyatt property, in addition to the 25% discount, you’re eligible to receive:

  • Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Southwest Asia: Breakfast included for all guests and a  20% food and beverage discount on minimum 2-night stays at participating hotels.
  • Asia Pacific: 10%+ food and beverage discount with no minimum stay at participating hotels.

While you don’t need to register for this promotion, you will need to use a special rate code. You can search for hotels on this landing page, or use the special rate code “PRIVATE” when you search on the Hyatt website.

If you hold a Hyatt cobranded credit card, you’re eligible for a 20% points rebate when staying at a Thompson property between the dates of April 1 and June 5.

After you stay, your account will be credited 20% back. For example, if you redeemed 100,000 World of Hyatt points for four nights at the Category 5 Thompson San Antonio, you would receive 20,000 points back with this promotion.

Each account is eligible for a maximum of a 30,000 point rebate. You’ll need to register for the promo here by April 30.

Bonus Journeys promotion

Hyatt’s latest Bonus Journeys promotion is now live, but you must register before your stay.

It offers 2,022 bonus points for every two qualifying nights after registration, for up to 20 nights. Better yet, the nights do not need to be consecutive to qualify for earning bonus points during the promotion period. The promotion will run from Jan. 15 through April 20, 2022, but you must register by March 15.

The promotion includes nights at almost all Hyatt properties, including participating MGM Resorts, Small Luxury Hotels of the World properties and Lindblad Expeditions experiences. The only major exclusion is AMR Collection resorts. You can earn up to 20,220 bonus points by spending 20 nights at Hyatt properties.

Typically, World of Hyatt members earn 5 points per $1 spent on eligible stays, with Hyatt elites getting a 10%-30% bonus on top of that. TPG values World of Hyatt points at 1.7 cents each, making each 2,022-point bonus worth $34.37.

Cardholder-exclusive bonus

Hyatt cobrand credit card holders can earn even more points through the Bonus Journeys promotion.

In addition to the 2,022-point bonus, cardholders will earn 1,000 bonus points for up to 10 eligible stays at more than 180 participating hotels in 10 U.S. cities. There’s no separate registration required if you have already registered for the Bonus Journeys promotion.

Here is a small sampling of eligible properties:

As you can see, they’re all centered around urban markets. You can view the full list of participating hotels here.

Bottom line

These offers provide valuable bonus points and discounts on your upcoming Hyatt stays. However, given the time of year, it is also interesting to note what’s not mentioned in these offers.

For example, this bonus is different from what we had from Hyatt at the beginning of 2021 when stays also counted double toward elite status. And along that train of thought, we also haven’t heard what — if anything — Hyatt plans to do with any additional status fast-tracks or extensions this year.

So while some questions about elite status within the World of Hyatt program in 2022 remain, it’s still a good time to go ahead and register for this promotion in case some early 2022 Hyatt stays end up on your calendar.

Likewise, it’s worth checking if the Private Sale aligns with your future travel plans. It could help you save big on your upcoming stays around the world with a discounted room rate and free breakfast.
