Over the last year and a half, we've seen some best-ever promotions from World of Hyatt to help spur travel. In addition to offering opportunities for earning extra bonus points, the program has made it easier than ever to earn Hyatt elite status. But it's not done yet.

World of Hyatt has just launched two new promotions — one that is a buy-one, get-one deal on Miraval award nights booked through Hyatt and another that lets you earn triple points when dining at participating Hyatt restaurants. If these offers sound familiar, it’s probably because Hyatt offered very similar promotions in summer 2020.

Here are all the details you need to know about these promotions.

Buy one, get one at Miraval

Miraval is one of the lesser-known brands in World of Hyatt's portfolio. It's a trio of wellness resorts and spas with locations in Tucson, Arizona; Austin, Texas; and the Berkshires in Massachusetts. In addition to being adults-only, what makes these oases stand out is that stays include most food and beverages plus activities like yoga, workout and meditation classes, hiking, and more. In other words, you don't just go here for a place to sleep; you go here for the experience.

As you'd expect, stays at these properties can be pricey.

If you use Hyatt points, it normally costs 45,000 points per night for single-occupancy or 65,000 points per night for double occupancy in a standard room. Meanwhile, starting rates for paid stays can creep toward $1,000 for double occupancy during normal times.

However, for stays between Nov. 1, 2021 and Jan. 31, 2022, Miraval award nights are buy one, get one free. So, if you're booking two nights, the nightly rate drops to 22,500 points per night for single-occupancy or 32,500 for two people staying in the same room.

However, there are a couple of major exclusions to note. First, the offer is not valid on Fridays and Saturdays, so a weekend getaway isn't an option. In addition, it's not available from Dec. 24 to Dec. 31, 2021.

It's worth mentioning that when you book Miraval stays on points, you not only benefit from the all-inclusive rate, but you’ll also get a $175 resort credit per person, per night to put toward spa treatments, alcoholic beverages and additional activities that come with a fee.

Also, note that Miraval awards are not available online, so you must call 866.792.3395 and book your stay over the phone. While there's no registration necessary for the offer, you must use the code "Member Free Night" to get the buy one, get one deal.

Earn triple points when dining out

The second promotion is geared towards those that aren't traveling right now but miss the experience of dining at a hotel restaurant. It offers 3x points on dine-in, delivery or takeout at participating hotel restaurants (when not staying the night).

There’s no registration required for this offer, and members can earn points on eligible purchases through Feb. 10, 2022. Simply provide your World of Hyatt number and pay with a credit card that offers bonus points on dining.

While the terms and conditions note that the maximum number of points per transaction is limited to 100,000, this is basically a moot point — since most people don’t spend $33,334 on a single restaurant bill.

You can learn more about which Hyatt restaurants are participating in this promotion by visiting Hyatt.com/dinelocal.

Bottom line

Being able to essentially save 50% on Miraval award stays is terrific — as long as you can work with the weekdays-only restriction. And while the offer to earn points on local dining might seem less exciting, it's an easy way for those currently not traveling to keep their points from expiring. After all, World of Hyatt points will start expiring again on Dec. 31, 2021 for accounts that have been inactive for 24 months.
