World of Hyatt has announced the details of its next global promotion, which offers bonus points and makes it easier to earn elite status. This is really exciting, since World of Hyatt’s last global promotion ended in April 2022.

Hyatt offering double points with new promo

World of Hyatt’s new Bonus Journeys promotion is valid for stays between September 15 and December 20, 2022. With this promotion, World of Hyatt members can earn:

  • 2x World of Hyatt points on qualifying stays of two or more nights at all properties
  • 2x World of Hyatt elite nights on stays of any length, but only at 65+ Inclusive Collection resorts
Hyatt’s Bonus Journeys promotion is back

There are some things to be aware of with the Hyatt Bonus Journeys promotion:

  • Registration is required prior to your first eligible stay, and no later than November 15, 2022
  • The promotion is valid for stays at all Hyatt properties, participating MGM Resorts, Small Luxury Hotels of the World locations, and Lindblad Expeditions
  • Any stay booked directly with Hyatt qualifies toward the promotion, including stays booked prior to the start of the promotion, as well as award stays
  • You can earn a maximum of 60,000 World of Hyatt bonus points with this promotion, which you’d earn after $12,000 of eligible Hyatt spending
  • There’s no limit to how many bonus elite nights you can earn at Inclusive Collection resorts; these properties include Hyatt Ziva, Hyatt Zilara, Zoetry Wellness Spa & Resorts, Secrets Resorts & Spas, Breathless Resorts & Spas, Dreams Resorts & Spas, Alua Hotels & Resorts, and Sunscape Resorts & Spas

Crunching the numbers on Hyatt’s promotion

Let’s start with the double points aspect of this promotion. For context, I value World of Hyatt points at ~1.5 cents each. How does the math work out on this promotion?

As you can see, the promotion offers an incremental 7.5% return on Hyatt spending. If you’re a World of Hyatt Globalist member paying with a co-branded credit card, you can earn a total of 15.5x World of Hyatt points per eligible dollar spent with Hyatt, which I view at a 23%+ return on Hyatt spending. That’s pretty solid.

This is a good promotion, certainly better than the one we saw earlier this year. However, it’s not quite as good as some of the promotions we’ve seen in the past, offering up to triple points.

As far as the double elite nights promotion goes, that’s of course great for those staying at Hyatt’s all-inclusive properties. Hyatt is understandably trying to push those hard, after its acquisition of Apple Leisure Group. However, personally I don’t see many people going out of their way to plan a last minute all-inclusive stay in order to earn double elite nights (though I could be wrong).

This World of Hyatt promotion is pretty rewarding

Other World of Hyatt offers to take advantage of

In addition to the new Hyatt Bonus Journeys promotion, keep in mind the other ongoing offers from World of Hyatt:

There are rewards for staying at new brands, like Alila

Bottom line

World of Hyatt has just revealed the details of its newest global Bonus Journeys promotion, valid for stays between September 15 and December 20, 2022. With this promotion, members can earn double points on all stays of two or more nights. Furthermore, stays at Inclusive Collection properties are eligible to earn double elite nights, which will help with qualifying for status.

After not having a global promotion this summer, it’s great to see World of Hyatt bring back a rewarding offer for stays this fall.

  1. Tony Guest

    What if you use the DOUBLE POINTS RATE during this promotion? Is that 20x/$1 spent?

    1. Ben Schlappig OMAAT

      @ Tony -- A double points rate gets you an extra five points per dollar spent, so you'd earn 15x points per dollar spent at a Hyatt when staying two or more nights.

  2. Ethan Guest

    a pretty disappointing promo, especially double tqn is US only - a slap in the face for WoH members outside US this year.

    1. skimegheath Gold

      It is a very US centric program anyway - eg credit card spend etc

  3. satellite Guest

    Do double nights at all-inclusives count towards Globalist 20 night challenge some of are eligible for through our jobs?

  4. Troopers Guest

    If this offer can be stacked with the MGM 2x points, that's 4x total then? Can you/did you confirm with Hyatt? Thanks

    1. Ben Schlappig OMAAT

      @ Troopers -- That would be 3x points total. Double points promotions are always determined from base points, so you ordinarily earn 5x base points, and then you'd earn 5x bonus points twice.

    2. Dave Guest

      Does that also apply to the double your points rate?

  5. Gerard New Member

    Hi Ben, are you sure that: "Any stay booked directly with Hyatt qualifies toward the promotion, including stays booked prior to the start of the promotion"? When I registered online using your link, the following text came up: "You're all set—just book and then complete your stays between September 15 and December 20, 2022, to double your rewards. "

    1. Ben Schlappig OMAAT

      @ Gerard -- Hyatt promotions almost never exclude previously booked stays. When you look at the terms, you'll see that there's nothing stating that previously booked travel doesn't qualify, as long as you register and then stay. So unless I'm missing something, I feel pretty confident about my claim.

  6. The Joe Guest

    Did the math, this will net me an additional 15K points. Not shabby. Wish all nights counted as double points, not just two night stays, but still decent.

  7. JP Guest

    Do you get double nights credit on stays booked with points ?

    1. The Joe Guest

      They're doubling Tier Qualifying nights, and since nights booked with points count, then yes.

    2. Trey Guest

      only at the all inclusive properties

  8. juju Guest

    I do see the value of double elite nights at the end of the year when people are making vacation plans during Thanksgiving and are short of a couple elite nights. Sad that it is only available in NA.
