If you have Hyatt stays planned this summer, you’ll want to make sure you’re registered for World of Hyatt’s current promotions.

All members can now register for Hyatt’s upcoming Bonus Journeys promotion, which will offer 3x bonus points on stays of two or more nights. Furthermore, those with a World of Hyatt Credit Card can register to earn a 25% rebate on some award redemptions.

If your travel plans align, you can earn or save a significant number of points, so let’s dig in.

Bonus Journeys promotion

Registration is now open for Hyatt’s upcoming Bonus Journeys promotion. It offers 3x bonus points on all stays of two or more qualifying nights between July 20 – Sept. 15, 2021.

The promotion includes nights at all Hyatt properties, including participating MGM Resorts, Small Luxury Hotels (SLH) properties and Lindblad Expedition experiences. You can earn up to 120,000 bonus points.

Normally, World of Hyatt members earn 5 points per $1. However, with the Bonus Journeys promotion, that goes up to 15 points per $1, excluding elite bonuses.

If you’re a World of Hyatt Credit cardholder, you can maximize this promotion further by charging Hyatt hotel stays to your card for a combined 19 points per $1 spent. For example, a $500 hotel stay would earn a total of 9,500 Hyatt points, which is enough for two nights at a Category 2 Hyatt hotel:

  • 5 points per $1 via the standard earning rate = 2,500 points
  • 10 points per $1 via Bonus Journeys = 5,000 points
  • 4 points per $1 from the Hyatt credit card = 2,000 points

And that’s before factoring in the 10-30% bonus elite members get.

Rebate on summer World of Hyatt redemptions

World of Hyatt periodically offers rebates and other promotions exclusively to cobranded credit cardholders.

This summer, all World of Hyatt Credit cardholders who register and book award nights between June 15 and Sept. 15, 2021, will get 25% of their points back on eligible redemptions at participating brands. You must register by Aug. 20, 2021, to be eligible.

Unfortunately, this version of the points rebate promo is not as lucrative as the ones we’ve seen in previous years because this one only applies to Hyatt’s independent collection brands: JdV by Hyatt, Destination by Hyatt and The Unbound Collection by Hyatt. So if you book the Confidante Miami Beach for 15,000 points per night, you’ll get back 3,750 points per night if you have the Hyatt credit card, since it is a part of the Unbound Collection.

If you aren’t yet a World of Hyatt Credit cardholder, you can sign-up for the card now, register for the promo and also become eligible to save on participating redemptions this summer as long as you register for the promo by Aug. 20, 2021.

In addition to the award stays themselves, you can earn the rebate on room upgrades, dining and spa services. Points + Cash redemptions are also eligible. You can earn up to 30,000 bonus points per transaction and there’s no limit to how many transactions you can have. Hyatt says that it could take 6-8 weeks for you to get your points back, though, in practice, it’s often been faster than that in previous years.

There’s no special link or promo code to book your stays. Just make sure to register for the offer by Aug. 20, 2021.

Bottom line

The newest offers to earn bonus points on your upcoming stays and save on award redemptions will engender loyalty with Hyatt as travel restarts. Although the 25% rebate for cobranded credit cardholders is a decent discount, it’s a bit more restrictive than some previous offers as it’s limited to just three hotel brands. That said, there are some unique hotels within those brands and this could be the right opportunity to give them a try for fewer points than normal.

Even if you don’t have any stays planned yet, you should register now for both promotions so you don’t accidentally forget and leave points on the table.
