Hyatt is back with the same promotion they offered April through June just with a different name. Instead of ‘Stay More Play More’ this one is called ‘More Points More Play’.
Park Hyatt New York
Registration begins September 1, and stays September 1 through November 30 will earn incrementally more bonus points — up to 75,000 points.
This is a great, rich promotion for heavy stay travelers. For those who max out the 25 nights it means an average of 3000 bonus points per night. Based on the value of miles that’s worth $42 per night. Which is yuge. Especially since it’s on top of regular points-earning, and valid at even the cheapest of Hyatt properties.
In fact, it’s good enough that if you’ve done 20 nights and earned 50,000 bonus points it could even be worth mattress-running the final 5 nights for 25,000 more bonus points (since that would be a rebate from the bonus alone of $70 per night). And certainly if you’re at 22 or 23 nights mattress runs would be in order. There aren’t too many promotions where the incentive is that great.

What’s brilliant about this is it’s lucrative enough to make me want to take a pause from other hotel stays I might have booked. There haven’t been many promotions rich enough to actually get me to shift business, as opposed to just being good things worth signing up for because more points are better than fewer points.
For the frequent guest I believe this is most lucrative. Marriott is offering MegaBonus which is nice for someone making two stays. IHG’s Accelerate promotion is the most game-able. Hilton’s double points is simplest, starting with the first night and Starwood’s offer is a bit more lucrative but requires two nights to start the clock.
