Hyatt Launches New Promotion, You Should Register Right Now, Even Free Nights Earn!

Last year Hyatt ran double points April through June and double points for the last month and a half of the year. Those were the only bonus promotions for hotel stays Hyatt ran. Period. And there’s been nothing yet this year.

Until now: they’ve just announced 1000 points per night at full service properties and 500 points per night at Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotels from today through May 15 up to 25,000 points total.

Free night awards now count towards promotional points-earning, too! That’s like a 1000 point per night discount on awards.

For the purpose of this offer, a qualifying night is defined as any night where a member is paying an Eligible Rate or redeems a free night award for at least one night of their stay.

Registration is required by March 31 and you should register even if you don’t expect to stay at a Hyatt — because you might wind up in one unexpectedly and you’ll never remember to register later. And unlike some other chain offers, this bonus kicks in with your first stay.

For full service hotel stays with room rates under $200 this is better than double points. It’s less valuable for Hyatt House and Hyatt Place and for pricier accommodations.

And notably the minimum 25 nights required to earn 25,000 bonus points would have earned you 75,000 bonus points just two years ago. This is less.

  2. Do note that you must check out by May 15, or you will not get the bonus points. So if you check in on May 14 for 2 nights, checking out on the 16th, you will get nada. But if you check in on the 14th and out on the 15th, and then back in on the 15th and out on the 16th…. you get the bonus for one night. Seems ridiculous to me.
    Here is from FAQ…
    A member’s stay must check out during the promotion period (February 15, 2018 through May 15, 2018) to earn the Bonus Points on the stay’s eligible nights. If a member checks into a reservation during the promotion period, but does not check out until after the promotion period has ended, the member will not earn Bonus Points on any eligible nights stayed as part of that reservation.

  3. How about if I’ve already booked some rooms but haven’t registered yet? Need to cancel, register and rebook?

  4. @ Gary — Just to clarify, are ALL types of award nights eligible (points, cash + points, free nights for 5 brands, Chase annual free night, free night for being a Globalist when WoH launched 3/1/2018, etc.)?
