World of Hyatt released a promotion yesterday afternoon that stacks nicely with their existing promotion. Hotel promotions as a whole have gotten less rewarding as the economy has improved. The impact of multiple promotions that members can double dip into (nod to Hilton) starts to make the discussion a bit more interesting.
Earn AAdvantage Miles For Stays At Hyatt Place And Hyatt House
Hyatt’s partnership with American Airlines is for stays at their limited service and extended stay brands. You’ll earn 1,000 bonus AAdvantage miles per stay. More details from Hyatt:
From October 15, 2018 to January 31, 2019, AAdvantage members can earn 1,000 bonus miles per qualifying stay at any Hyatt Place or Hyatt House hotel around the world. Members must register for the promotion by November 30, 2018 and check out by January 31, 2019. Bonus miles can be earned when choosing to earn base miles or points at Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotels. American Advantage members can earn the 1,000 bonus miles up to 10 times during the promotional period.
You need to register for the promotion. I sound like a broken record, but just go register now before you forget. It’s free, takes 30 seconds, and you’ll thank me later if your plans change and you need to book a last-minute stay at a Hyatt Place or Hyatt House.
This promotion can be combined with Hyatt’s existing promotion. That promotion is tiered, so folks who stay more nights really see the most benefits.
Is It Worth It To Move Stays To Hyatt?
I see a number of my fellow bloggers who equate a dollar value to the points associated. I’m a data nerd, I get that. Consistently, I don’t hear most of my readers talking about the value of an individual point. They’re focused on the longer term goal. How do I get my family to Hawaii? The Hyatt promotions combined may be the best offer out there, especially when you consider the lack of excitement around Marriott’s current promotion.
But, through the lens of maximizing the collection of points and miles, I like the two Hyatt plays together. 1,000 AAdvantage mile isn’t something to sniff at, especially when short one-way flights can be had for as little as 10,000 miles. Combine that with the Hyatt points you’ve been earning, and it is possible to eke out the framework of a short trip if you already have a lot of stays planned at limited service hotels.
The Final Two Pennies
I wouldn’t mattress run this promotion, the dollars just aren’t there. And, I wouldn’t switch from a full service hotel if that’s your jam. But, if you were going to be staying in a limited service hotel for a total of 5 nights or more over this time period, Hyatt is the place to be. Even occasional travelers with one stay will enjoy the extra 1,000 AAdvantage points in their account. Plus, the occasional traveler should always be looking for ways to extend the expiration date on their miles, which this would absolutely do. It’s not the glory days of hotel promotions, but our goal is always to get the best we can when we can.
