World of Hyatt hasn’t offered many global promotions lately, but rather they’ve been offering promotions for specific brands and segments.
For example, they’ve offered double stay credits for Andaz stays, bonus points at Grand Hyatt and Hyatt Regency, award stay discounts for those with Hyatt’s co-branded credit card, the ability to double dip for Hyatt Place and Hyatt House stays, and more.
Now Hyatt has revealed the details of their next global promotion. While it’s great to see one of these, don’t get too excited.
World of Hyatt is offering up to 60,000 bonus points for stays between September 1 and November 30, 2018. This promotion is valid for stays at all Hyatt hotels worldwide, as well as MGM properties in Las Vegas. All eligible stays qualify, which even includes award stays, so you can earn points when redeeming points, which is awesome.
Here’s the tiered bonus Hyatt is offering with this new promotion, whereby you can earn at most 60,000 points after staying 40 nights:
|Nights||Bonus Points Earned||Total Bonus Points Earned|
Registration will be available between August 29 and October 15, 2018. You’ll be able to register at this link starting tomorrow, though that page won’t be active until around 10AM ET.
Hyatt has offered similar tiered promotions in the past, though typically they’ve been more generous, with the ability to earn 60,000 bonus points after just 25 nights. So having to stay an additional 15 nights is significant. However, given that hotels are full and that we haven’t otherwise seen such promotions in a while, I’ll certainly take it!
As you can see, with this promotion you’re earning the following number of bonus points per night, based cumulative nights:
- An average of 500 bonus points per night if staying five nights
- An average of 750 bonus points per night if staying 10 nights
- An average of 875 bonus points per night if staying 20 nights
- An average of ~1,176 bonus points per night if staying 30 nights
- An average of 1,500 bonus points per night if staying 40 nights
Personally I value World of Hyatt points at ~1.5 cents each. This means that if staying 40 nights you’d be looking at a return of $22.50 per night, which is a significant return, but that requires staying at least 40 nights. On the low end you’d earning 500 points per night, which I value at $7.50.
Like I said, this is better than nothing, though I’m not sure this would influence my consumer behavior all that much. Perhaps it would impact my decision if I were nearing one of the thresholds, but these are very specific amounts, and beyond the first couple of tiers you need an incremental 10 nights to reach the next threshold, which is significant.
What do you make of World of Hyatt’s upcoming promotion?
