Hyatt teased us a month ago telling us there was going to be a new promotion coming for the first quarter of 2015 — but not telling us what it would be.
There’s been much electronic ink spilled in hermeneutical exegesis over what Hyatt’s hints would mean for the promotion.
For instance, yesterday One Mile at a Time suggested that in saying the promotion would be ‘one of their best’ that they must really mean it.
Now on one hand I don’t read too much into marketing hype, but at the same time saying that the promotion is “one of [their] best” is a pretty strong statement. .. If it were just the same type of promotion as in the past, I’d hope they wouldn’t say “it’s one of [the] best.”
Now we finally know what the ‘Stay More Play More’ promotion is.
It’s a series of targeted promotions, and you need to register to find out what yours is.
Register by April 30, and stays between January 15 and April 30 will earn tiered bonuses — as Hyatt has offered in recent times. All hotels participate, as is also Hyatt’s practice (and isn’t the practice of Starwood and Hilton) and MGM M life stays do count as well.
My offer is: up to 65,000 points for 25 nights
I’m a Diamond member and I maxed out the last offer of 50,000 points after 20 nights. So I’m guessing this is the toughest and most lucrative offer, but I’d love to hear what you receive.
Another common offer is 50,000 total points as we’ve seen before.
- 5 Nights, 5,000 points
- 10 Nights, 10,000 points
- 15 Nights, 15,000 points
- 20 Nights, 20,000 points
Oddly, I don’t have any qualifying Hyatt stays planned yet this year. I have at least 8 ineligible award nights during the promotion period. I have a bunch of Starwood stays, and some others as well. But I haven’t booked Hyatt yet. Perhaps I was waiting for the promotion.
This is neither super-generous, one of the best ever, nor disappointing. It’s about what I’d expect, and I’m happy to see it in the current environment and will be happy to earn some extra points.
