While the Hyatt hotel chain has a smaller footprint than many of its competitors, a generous loyalty program and numerous promotions make up for it.

World of Hyatt’s latest offer is live as of today and you can register for it here. The Bonus Journeys offer awards 2,000 bonus World of Hyatt points for every two qualifying nights earned between Mar. 1 and June 15, 2021. This is worth $34 based on TPG’s most recent valuation of World of Hyatt points (1.7 cents per point).

Even better, those with a World of Hyatt Credit Card earn an extra 500 points per two nights, for a total of 2,500 points earned for every two nights stayed.

To sweeten the deal, all members will earn a Free Night Award valid at any Category 1-4 Hyatt hotel after their earning ten qualifying nights during the promo period. This stacks with the 2,000-points offer, so you’d earn 10,000 points and a Free Night Award for your 10 nights, in addition to the points you already earn on your stays.

The promotion includes nights at all Hyatt properties, including participating MGM Resorts, Small Luxury Hotels (SLH) properties and Lindblad Expedition experiences.

You can register for this promotion today on Hyatt’s website. Note that registration closes for the promo on May 15, so act quickly to register now so you can’t accidentally forget. There is no maximum number of points you can earn from this promotion and the two nights do not need to be consecutive.
