World of Hyatt’s current global promotion expires today, and to coincide with that, World of Hyatt has announced the details of its upcoming global promotion, which launches in a few weeks. This is a promotion to get excited about, in my opinion, as it’s quite generous.

Keep in mind that all of this complements World of Hyatt reducing elite requirements by half for 2021, meaning you can earn Globalist status with just 30 elite qualifying nights.

New World of Hyatt Bonus Journeys promotion

The new World of Hyatt Bonus Journeys promotion will be valid for stays between July 20 and September 15, 2021. With this promotion, World of Hyatt members will be able to earn triple points on all stays of two or more nights.

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

  • Registration will be required, and will open as of July 7, 2021
  • The promotion will be 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 will qualify towards the promotion
  • Previously booked stays will qualify, so it’s fine if you book before the promotion period started, as long as you register prior to check-out of your first stay
  • You’ll be able to earn a maximum of 120,000 World of Hyatt bonus points with the promotion, which equates to $12,000 of eligible spending

World of Hyatt members will be able to earn triple points

Crunching the numbers on Hyatt’s new promotion

World of Hyatt’s upcoming promotion will be in line with the best promotions we’ve seen from the program. For context, I value World of Hyatt points at ~1.5 cents each. How does the math work out on this promotion?

  • World of Hyatt members earn 5x points per dollar spent at Hyatts and other eligible properties
  • Elite members receive further bonuses — Discoverists earn an extra 0.5x points per dollar spent, Explorists earn an extra 1.0x points per dollar spent, and Globalists earn an extra 1.5x points per dollar spent
  • If you pay with the World of Hyatt Credit Card (review) you earn an extra 4x points per dollar spent
  • With this promotion, World of Hyatt members will earn 10x bonus points per dollar spent

In other words, a World of Hyatt Globalist member paying with the World of Hyatt Card for a stay of two or more nights would earn a total of 20.5x World of Hyatt points, and based on my valuation that’s like a return of ~31% on Hyatt spending. That’s excellent.

Members will be able to earn up to 20.5x points per dollar

Other World of Hyatt offers to take advantage of

In addition to the new Hyatt Bonus Journeys promotion that’s launching in a few weeks, keep in mind the other ongoing offers from World of Hyatt:

There are rewards for staying at new brands, like Alila

There are lots of great ways to earn World of Hyatt points

Bottom line

World of Hyatt has just announced the details of its next global Bonus Journeys promotion. World of Hyatt members will be able to earn triple points on stays of two or more nights this summer, which has the potential to be an excellent deal.

World of Hyatt Globalist members paying with the World of Hyatt Card will be able to earn up to 20.5x World of Hyatt points per dollar spent, which I value at a 31% return. I’m thrilled to see a truly lucrative summer promotion from World of Hyatt, because I wasn’t necessarily convinced that would happen due to the amount of leisure travel demand we’re seeing.

    Meh, no benefit on Award stays.

  2. Ryan

    @Lucky - the registration link you posted is old. The newer one for this promotion is found at https://world.hyatt.com/content/gp/en/offers/bonus-journeys-coming-soon.html?WOHNUMBER=%3cmemberID%3e

    @Tom - there is definitely a benefit for award stays. If you spend ANY money at the hotel (meals, etc.) any of the spend will qualify for the bonus points. I'm staying at Grand Hyatt Baha Mar on points during the time frame and will definitely be maximizing this promotion for all food spend.

      @Ryan - given food costs at their Baha Mar property you will rack up a tonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn of points:)

    2. DCAFrank

      Got married at Baha Mar. Didn't earn normal WOH points on the f&b spend. Did earn like 20K points for hitting a minimum catering #, but of course paid for the entire wedding on my WOH card.

    3. AMPfromBNA

      @Ryan, careful on your spend at Baha Mar. They do not consistently give points credit at F&B outlets on property, stating that they are not a part of the Hyatt and that room charges are only available as a convenience.

  3. Anthony

    Great promo - I actually looked at switching over some of my upcoming travel. Challenge is that Hyatt is absent or barely present in half of my destinations this summer. Marriott is in all of them, Hilton in all but one. I may take advantage of this once, but it could be more if there were more Hyatt hotels. Easier way to earn Hyatt points is to spend on Chase Freedom Unlimited / Freedom Flex...

  4. daftryan

    @Tom - Bring it on! I've got money.

  5. Martin C

    Hope this includes spending on food/wedding? Staying at Ambassador Chicago for our wedding night, for the suite we are using points for 2 nights that we are staying there, but if it includes the wedding spent, that will be awesome! Definitely will be spending at least $12,000 on the food & wedding venue so i can get the maximum of 120k..

    1. Merry Chris Moss

      Probably not. The spend isn't charged to the room but charged to a master bill which you pay, presumably with your card. I believe the T&Cs say no master bills. You should be receiving bonus points but through your contract. I'd contact your salesperson but can't adjust contract at this point.

    2. Martin C

      Shoot, i used all my Hyatt pts for pre-honeymoon trip in Santorini, so thought i can take advantage of this opportunity to rack up some major points back. I re-read my contract which is confusing a little, "Master Account is only applicable if credit approval is granted" - which i did not apply. But i guess events like this still go to a master bill instead of bill to the room? Oh well, i will ask to make sure.

  6. Eric

    @Lucky - can you clarify this bullet?

    -You’ll be able to earn a maximum of 120,000 World of Hyatt bonus points with the promotion, which equates to $12,000 of eligible spending

    What do you mean $12K eligible spending? If I do the math, a non-elite member will earn 15x and max spend would be $8K.

    1. Michael

      The limit is on bonus points, so the 5 base points per dollar don't count. You'll earn 10 bonus points per dollar, so $12,000 gets you 120,000 bonus points, regardless of status tier.

  7. Pam

    “Choose your adventure Choose your offer” also came out on Monday with a free night with 2, 3, or 4 pd or a % off

  8. MBB

    If you check in before July 20 but check out after July 20 will that earn the promotion bonus points? Or does check in have to be on/after July 20?
