5000 United Miles Per Hyatt Stay

Lucky points to this offer from Hyatt — 5000 United miles per Hyatt stay through October 31.

For stays between September 1 and October 31, United 1K members can earn 5,000 miles per Hyatt stay (registration is required), and as far as I can tell there’s no limit. That means 5,000 miles for a $75 stay at a Hyatt Place hotel. That’s a deal in and of itself, but combine that with Faster Free nights, which will almost definitely be back, and I think we’re looking at quite a deal….

Now correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t believe this is combinable with any other bonus points opportunities, right?

While this offer is targeted to United 1Ks (The offer page says “United Airlines® Mileage Plus 1K members are invited…”), I wonder whether anyone can actually make use of it — you register, and Hyatt sends the miles over to United, I imagine there’s no actual check that you’re a 1K in order to get the bonus. The terms and conditions of the offer do not say that you need to be a 1K in order to earn the bonus — just that you have to sign up for the offer on the web page that ‘welcomes 1Ks’.

  1. Actually, when you read the Terms of Service on the Hyatt site post-signup, it does say that a screening will be performed to make sure the member is 1K with United.

  2. “United® Mileage Plus 1K membership will be validated to receive the bonus” appears to have been ADDED to the terms and conditions. I smell a rat.
