I literally was wondering this Sunday night. Hyatt hadn’t rolled out a promotion in 2017. Since they launched their new program a month ago, it was understandable that a new promotion hadn’t hit the street yet. And, Hyatt has made a habit of sitting out the earlier part of the year in the promo game. There’s now official news of Hyatt’s first promotion under their new program, World of Hyatt.
The promotion, Double Points for Being You, starts April 1st and runs through June 30th, 2017. It awards double points on all stays after your first stay in the promotion period. It’s a stay-based promotion, which means no need to hotel hop to earn more points.
Offering double points is a pretty similar promotion to the ones Marriott and SPG are running right now, with the exception that SPG has an extra earning tier if you were planning to have 20 or more nights at SPG properties during the promo period. There’s only 2 weeks overlap between the two promos, which is good for those of us that like to chase bonus point opportunities.
For those who wonder if this promotion is valid outside of Hyatt properties, you can earn points at the Vegas MGM properties that are part of the joint agreement between the two companies. However, it’s not valid for Miraval, a property Hyatt is in the process of acquiring.
The Final Two Pennies
Double points seem to be the new standard for hotel promotions. With more heads in more beds spending more money, there isn’t the need for huge bonus opportunities. Double points are still worth it if you’re deciding between a Hyatt or SPG property over the next few months. Don’t forget to register! It’s free to do so even if you don’t have a Hyatt stay planned. You don’t want to be stuck later on if plans change and you end up at a Hyatt hotel. After notching my lifetime Globalist status, you’ll definitely find me hanging out at some Hyatt hotels during the promo period.
