Hyatt points for opening up their app on December 9th and playing a brief Headspace recording are posting. I’m surprised by the IT that made this work as there was no registration or indication on the app that they’d be bonusing this, just separate communication from Hyatt.
I just opened the Hyatt app on my phone, turned off the volume, and let the Headspace 10 minute ‘sleep’ sequence run for 500 points. There’s nothing in the app that talks about earning these points, and no registration to complete.
Hyatt acquired Exhale spas and offers a World of Hyatt partnership. They also have a content alliance with Headspace, giving members trial Headspace access for guided meditation. Mindfulness, cleansing, nurturing in non-Covid times have been ways to earn a revenue premium, helping guests create a narrative about themselves that moves beyond providing them a bed for the night.
My wife would attest that mindfulness is hardly my area of focus. You might even say that I couldn’t find ‘true north’ if I was firmly planted in the Arctic with a compass.
Nonetheless I’ll open up the Hyatt app on Wednesday because of an opportunity to earn 500 free Hyatt points. World of Hyatt shares that Wednesday, December 9 is their “third annual Global Day of Gratitude” and members who complete a guided meditation from Headspace on that day will earn 500 points.
- Open the World of Hyatt app.
- Complete a custom Headspace exercises (“Unwind, Reflect or Sleep”)
- Receive 500 points
These (3) exercises are free and do not require a trial subscription. (They also offer a 30-day trial subscription to Headspace with promo code HYATT valid through December 31, which renews automatically at $12.99 per month.)
I think I can tell my phone I’m sleeping for 500 points, which I value at ~ $7.
Hyatt also “is encouraging guests, members, customers and colleagues around the globe to take a moment to show gratitude by visiting hyatt.com/gratitude to send a “Gift of Gratitude” message to someone for whom they are grateful or who has made a difference in their lives.”
This “Gifts of Gratitude” website will be open year-round, allowing anyone to share multiple gratitude notes to anyone in the world on an ongoing basis. We hope this encourages people to embrace gratitude as a mindset to celebrate today and every day!
I’m not sure I need Hyatt’s help to say thank you but it’s worth the reminder that a little extra kindness is always appreciated.
