World of Hyatt has just announced the details of their latest global promotion, through which they’re offering up to 1,500 bonus points per night.
World of Hyatt’s next global promotion is valid for stays between February 15 and May 15, 2019. With this promotion, World of Hyatt members earn 1,000 bonus points per night at all eligible properties, and an extra 500 bonus points per night for Hyatt Place and Hyatt House stays.
There are some terms to be aware of, though:
- Registration is required
- This is valid for stays at 750+ Hyatt hotels, 10+ M life properties, and 100+ Small Luxury Hotels of the World properties
- Eligible stays include award redemptions
- You only start earning bonus points with your second stay, so your first stay doesn’t earn any bonus points
- You can earn bonus points for at most 50 nights during the promotion period
Earn bonus points even for award stays
This is a pretty solid promotion, especially for those who typically make short stays, as well as those who stay at fairly inexpensive properties.
Personally I value World of Hyatt points at ~1.5 cents each. So you’re earning an incremental return of $15 per night, or $22.50 per night at Hyatt Place and Hyatt House properties.
Earn even more bonus points for stays at Hyatt Place & Hyatt House properties
Keep in mind that all of this is in addition to the usual World of Hyatt points earning:
- World of Hyatt members ordinarily earn 5 base points per dollar spent
- Discoverist members earn a 10% points bonus, Explorist members earn a 20% points bonus, and Globalist members earn a 30% points bonus
- The World Of Hyatt Credit Card offers 4 points per dollar spent at Hyatt hotels
So as a Globalist member paying with The World Of Hyatt Credit Card I ordinarily earn 10.5 points per dollar spent, which I value at a return of 15.75%. Then on top of that I’m getting an incremental return of $22.50 per night at Hyatt House and Hyatt Place, and $15 per night at other brands.
As a point of comparison, Hyatt’s previous global promotion was last fall, and offered up to 60,000 bonus points after 40 nights. However, points were only awarded in specific increments (at 5, 10, 20, 30, and 40 nights), so all things considered I prefer this promotion.
This is a solid new promotion from World of Hyatt that offers an incremental return of $15-22.50 per night, which I’d consider to be very good.
Meanwhile Marriott made a big to-do about their new Bonvoy loyalty program, but can’t even bother to have a promotion…
What do you make of Hyatt’s new promotion?
