Hyatt’s Winter Promotion Revealed at oneworld MegaDO Opening Reception

Over on the oneworld MegaDO blog, I posted about last night’s opening reception at the Hyatt Regency DFW. Jeff Zidell, who runs the Gold Passport program, gave a great talk with trivia and prizes.. and dropped some advance news. Their winter promo details.

He also broke the news about their first quarter promotion which offers up to 55,000 bonus points, more than enough points for 2 nights at the Park Hyatt Vendome in Paris or Park Hyatt Maldives (with 11,000 points to spare).

We started off guessing Charlie Sheen’s favorite promo…


And then the new promo was revealed!

For every 4 nights between February 1 and April 30, members will earn progressively more bonus points and Hyatt Visa cardholders will earn an extra 25% bonus on top. Registration for the promo is required by March 31.


  • 4 nights earns 4000 points (+1000 for Hyatt Visa cardholders)
  • 8 nights earns an additional 8000 points (+2000 for Hyatt Visa cardholders)
  • 12 nights earns an additional 12,000 points (+3000 for Hyatt Visa cardholders)
  • 16 nights earns an additional 20,000 points (+5000 for Hyatt Visa cardholders)

Members staying 16 nights during the three months of the promotion, who also have a Hyatt Visa, will earn 55,000 bonus points in addition to their regular earning.

Lucky argues that this is the most generous promotion currently in the market. It’s certainly going to yield more points after more nights than what anyone else is offering, so especially if you’re going to have a few Hyatt nights you’ll want to have more for the incremental bonuses.

  1. When they say that Hyatt Visa holders get more points, does that mean the stays have to be paid with that Visa?

  2. @Mark – The slide is not wrong. In fact, the presenter was just trying to compare Spring 2011 Promotion with Spring 2012 Promotion (current)
