Hyatt’s recent promotions have been among the industry’s most generous. So it was with considerable anticipation that we pored over the details of their new fall/winter offer.
With Hyatt’s Great 10K promotion, Gold Passport members who stay five nights at Hyatt family hotels between September 15 and December 15 will earn 10,000 bonus points. The bonus may be earned an unlimited number of times during the promotion period.
Registration is required, but the online registration form won’t be available until September 15. Until then, members can register by calling 1-800-228-3360 (in the U.S.) or a local Hyatt reservations center (outside the U.S.).
Deal or No Deal
This is a bit of a downgrade, compared to recent Hyatt offers—which have, in fairness to Hyatt, been standouts.
The last Gold Passport promotion, in effect between March 26 and June 30, offered a free night or 5,000 bonus points after every two qualifying stays. Assuming the qualifying stays were single nights, that’s both more generous and easier to qualify for than the current promotion.
Still, five nights isn’t an impossible hurdle, and 10,000 bonus points is a worthwhile incentive.
