Editor’s note: This guide has been updated with the latest promotions. 

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

Hyatt has 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.

This offer can be stacked with the ongoing American Airlines promotion, which offers 1,000 bonus AAdvantage miles per stay at eligible World of Hyatt properties in the U.S. That promotion runs through Jan. 31, 2022, but you must have registered by Dec. 15, 2021. World of Hyatt has also announced that it’s extending its Work from Hyatt program through Dec. 11, 2022.

You can earn a significant number of points if your travel plans align, so let’s dig in.

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

World of Hyatt Credit Card and World of Hyatt Business 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.

As a reminder, cardholders also earn 4 points per $1 spent at Hyatt properties when paying with their cobranded Hyatt credit card.

If you aren’t yet a World of Hyatt Credit Card or World of Hyatt Business Credit Card holder yet, you can sign up for one of the cards now, register for the promo and also become eligible to earn bonus points on these stays.

Bottom line

This offer will provide valuable bonus points on your upcoming Hyatt stays. However, given the time of year, it is also interesting to note what’s not mentioned in this offer. For example, this bonus is quite 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 beyond February 2022.

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.
