Double Dip: Earn Hyatt Points and American Miles on Hyatt Place/Hyatt House Stays

When hotels began their loyalty programs a lot more attention was paid to airline programs. Guests were regularly given the choice to each points with the hotel’s program or earn airline miles. Hilton made their name with the ‘double dip’ giving you both points and miles, you didn’t have to choose. Hotel programs have all grown up, and double dipping (earning styles) go away April 1.

Hyatt though is offering its own double dip with American AAdvantage through June 30. And it stacks with the current bonus promotion that runs through May 15.

Hyatt House and Hyatt Place stays completed between February 20 and June 30, 2018 earn 1000 American AAdvantage miles in addition to the regular points or miles that would be earned from the stay.

Registration is required by April 30th. You enter both your Hyatt number and AAdvantage number to register.

Award stays now count as eligible rates so if you’re using points you’ll still get 1000 AAdvantage miles. This bonus can be earned an unlimited number of times — once per stay, and only one room per stay.

I wouldn’t choose a Hyatt Place or Hyatt House because of 1000 extra American Airlines miles which I’d value at $15 but I’ll definitely take the miles — it’s worth registering just in case you wind up with a qualifying stay — for bookings I’d make anyway.

Hyatt does seem to be emphasizing stimulating demand for Hyatt House and Hyatt Place over other brands besides the new lifestyle acquisitions which are also getting plenty of love.

  1. This won’t bring me back to Hyatt for 25+ stays each year, but I appreciate free miles even if I have to suffer Hyatt House. They offer a marginal bonus, they’ll get some marginal stays, probably culled from Hilton…

  2. I just stayed at a Hyatt House and got my extra 500 points per night on Hyatt because of Garys site. I just registered for the 1,000 AA points. Do I get both, or are they going to take away my extra 500 points per night (X2) for my stay?

  3. @gary – the real question is, with the current Hyatt promo, is it worth giving up 500 WOH points to stay at a Place/House location in order to get 1k AA miles? I’m thinking the 500 WOH points beat 1k AA miles.
