Hyatt is bringing back one of our favorite promotions for its cobranded credit card holders, through which you can get back 20% of the points you redeem for upcoming stays. This applies only to certain hotel brands, however, and it’s only running for two months.

If you have Hyatt stays planned for this summer, you may be able to get up to 30,000 points back in your account. Here are the details on the promotion and how you can maximize it by combining it with other promotions.

If you hold a Hyatt cobranded credit card, you’re eligible for a 20% points rebate when staying at Unbound Collection, Destination by Hyatt and Joie de Vivre properties. This promotion applies to stays with checkout dates from July 5 to Sept. 5, but you must register by July 31.

For example, if you stay at the Mar Monte Hotel in Santa Barbara California, this Unbound Collection property will cost 20,000 points per night during standard pricing. If you stay here for five nights, you’ll pay 100,000 points and then get 20,000 points back — enough for another night at the property in the future.

Each account is eligible for a maximum rebate of 30,000 points. You’ll need to register for the promo here by July 31.

You could sweeten this deal a little bit further if you’re able to line up your stay with the ongoing Hyatt promotion of 500 bonus points when staying at new hotels on the published list. Remember that only three Hyatt brands are eligible for the 20% points rebate. However, if you can find a hotel in those brands that’s also on the list of new hotels, you’d get an extra 500 points per stay.

Also, if you’ve never stayed at a hotel from the Unbound Collection, Joie de Vivre or Destination by Hyatt, staying at these properties can also help you earn a free night award with Hyatt. That’s thanks to World of Hyatt’s excellent Brand Explorer perk, which rewards guests with a free night award each time they stay at five different Hyatt brands. Yes, free night redemptions count as stays for this promotion.

Bottom line

This is similar to promotions we’ve seen from Hyatt in the past. It’s nice to see the offer apply to three brands — unlike the single brand the last time we saw this promotion.

Getting 20% of your points back is an excellent perk. It can also help offset the elevated prices you’re likely to see when using your points this summer, due to World of Hyatt moving to a peak and off-peak pricing model.

If you’re a Hyatt credit card holder, you should register for this promotion. Even if you don’t think you’ll use it, it’s better to sign up before the deadline, just in case your plans change later on.
