If you have Hyatt stays planned this fall or winter, be sure to register for World of Hyatt’s new promotions.

If you’re planning to visit a Hyatt property during the final months of 2020, you may be able to take home over 25 Hyatt points for every dollar you spend. And the program has announced an extension to a popular, previously-announced offer for redeeming Hyatt points.

The details

Bonus Journeys

The Bonus Journeys promo is back! Earn 3x points on paid stays at all Hyatt locations worldwide, including participating M life Rewards and Small Luxury Hotels of the World properties, and Lindblad Expeditions, up to 150,000 World of Hyatt points. World of Hyatt Credit Card holders (and those with the old Hyatt credit card) can earn 4x points on resort stays, up to 75,000 points. You can register for the promo here.

In addition, this new promotion includes an offer for bonus elite night credits. For every tier-qualifying night you complete during the promotion dates, you’ll earn a night toward both 2020 and 2021 World of Hyatt elite status. This gives you a head start on earning status for next year.

It appears that all Hyatt resorts are included in the promotion, which you’ll earn 4x points if you’re a cardholder. You can find the list of Hyatt resorts around the world here.

The promotion runs for stays with a checkout date through Jan 4, 2021, but you must register by Nov. 30, 2020.

Points rebate and free parking

All Hyatt members who register and book award nights between now and Jan. 4, 2021, will get 15% of their points back and free parking. This promotion applies to award stays across all Hyatt brands, including core brands like Park Hyatt and Hyatt Regency, as well as participating SLH and MGM properties.

World of Hyatt Credit cardholders’ rebate is increased to 25%.

To take advantage of this rebate, you’ll need to register for this promotion by Dec. 1, 2020. Then simply redeem your points and you’ll get 15-25% of your points back within 6-8 weeks.

There are two separate registration links, so be sure to use the one that applies to you:

As TPG’s Richard Kerr noted last week, this promotion can allow you to earn a massive return on your Hyatt stays. Depending on your elite status tier and the credit card you use, you could earn up to 25x points.

Doing some quick math, a Globalist who has the World of Hyatt Credit Card staying at a participating (4x) resort during the promotion period would earn:

  • 20x for quadruple points (4 x 5 points/$ base rate)
  • 4x for spending on credit card (or 3x for old Hyatt card)
  • 1.5x for Globalist bonus (base 5 points/$ x 30% bonus)

TOTAL: 25.5x for Globalists

25.5x World of Hyatt points per dollar spent is an astounding number of points to earn on a paid stay. TPG values World of Hyatt points at 1.7 cents each, meaning a Globalist credit card holder would earn 43 cents back in points on each dollar spent on the stay.

3x points on local dining

You can earn 3x points per dollar spent by dining at participating hotel restaurants from now through Jan. 4, 2021. This applies to non-stay charges for restaurant spending at participating Hyatt hotels.

Just provide your World of Hyatt number and pay with a credit card that offers bonus points on dining. You’ll earn bonus points with your credit card and through the World of Hyatt program. If you use a Hyatt credit card, you’ll get an additional 2 points per dollar spent.
