Hyatt is running a targeted 50,000 point promotion through the end of November. I wasn’t targeted, but fortunately it was still possible to sign up.
That period is shaping up to be super generous because it will stack with the 1000 bonus points per stay they’ll give you through the end of the year for booking with their mobile app or mobile website.
I shrugged my shoulders at Hilton over 1000 HHonors points but do see value in 1000 Hyatt points. That’s the thing about hotel programs, they’re all on different point ‘scales’. A top tier Hyatt will cost about a third as many points as the top-end Hilton.
The trick here is that the stay has to be booked and consumed between October 1 and December 31. Annoying, I may have to cancel and rebook some stays I’ve already reserved in order to pick up the bonus points.
The other trick is that while paid Hyatt stays booked through their mobile channels count, MGM M Life stays (which count towards status) don’t earn under this promotion.
