Hyatt Offered Me 1,000 Free Gold Passport Points

Filed Under: Free Miles/Points, Hyatt

I just received the following email from Hyatt:

Dear Ben,

We’re so happy to have you as a Hyatt Gold Passport Diamond member and Hyatt Credit Cardmember. That’s why we’re giving you 1,000 Hyatt Gold Passport bonus points.

It’s easy to get your gift, simply accept it by clicking the button below. There’s nothing else you need to do to enjoy your points. They will appear in your account 30 days after you accept them. Just be sure to claim your gift before January 31, 2015 – it’s a thousand thanks from us to you.*


For what it’s worth, here’s the URL:

Just enter your Gold Passport number in the area where I presently have the “__________” to see if you’re eligible.

I just had to click the link (my Gold Passport information was already auto-populated), at which point I was brought to a confirmation page:


I love me some free points! The email thanks me for being a Diamond member and for having their co-branded credit card, though I’m not sure if they’re offering the same to those that are just Diamond, those that just have to co-branded credit card, etc.

Did you receive a similar email from Hyatt, and if so, what’s your status and do you have their credit card?

  1. “This Hyatt Gold Passport account number is not eligible to participate in this promotion.” for accounts of both self and wife. 🙁 🙁

  2. I received the same email and accepted the 1,000 points. Nice gesture by Hyatt. I’m Diamond and have the credit card also.

  3. “THANK YOU!
    You have now accepted your gift of 1,000 Hyatt Gold Passport bonus points and you will see them deposited into your Hyatt Gold Passport account after 30 days.”

    Thanks for posting this as I did not get an e-mail about it but apparently will receive the points! FWIW, I am Diamond.

  4. Just found the 1k offer in my junk mail. I’m diamond and have chase hyatt card.Thanks for the heads up.

  5. Got the email a couple hours ago and accepted the offer. Diamond member and cardholder who just requalified for Diamond (shows status until Feb 2016 on my account) a couple weeks ago. Perhaps requalification for Diamond is one of the conditions?

  6. Just an update. Even though it says “They will appear in your account 30 days after you accept them.” my 1,000 points have already posted.

  7. Thanks for the heads up. . I am a Diamond and a Hyatt CC holder. I have almost re-qualified for Diamond, meaning 8 more stays. Accepted the offer, but points have not posted yet.

  8. I really dislike these targeted offers. As a diamond, what I am not as valuable??? Who got targeted and who didn’t? I would rather they just have a promotion, or thank ALL of their diamond members.

  9. : ( this diamond, cc holder does not qualify. I guess I’m just a chopped liver kind of diamond member. (I even had a recent pricey stay at a Hyatt!)

  10. got the offer. Diamond and CC Holder. (i’ve had both the card and diamond status concurrently for over 2 years FWIW)

  11. I got the email, too. Diamond + Chase Hyatt card for me. Mattress running 3x this month @ $72 Hyatt Place Elite rate in order to keep Diamond as my travel patterns changed from last year! Just confirmed Diamond suite upgrade at Park Hyatt Dubai points+cash rate for 4 nts in Feb, so it’s well worth it to me!
