Earn Hyatt Points and American Miles at the Same Time on Hyatt Place/Hyatt House Stays

When hotels began their loyalty programs a lot more attention was paid to airline programs. Guests were regularly given the choice to each points with the hotel’s program or earn airline miles. People cared a lot more about airline programs, but hotels wanted to convert customers to their own programs — so made a name with the ‘double dip’ giving you both points and miles, you didn’t have to choose.

Hotel programs have all grown up, and double dipping ended April 1.

Just as they did late February through June, Hyatt is offering its own double dip with American AAdvantage through January 31. And it stacks with the current bonus promotion that gives bonus points for progressively more stays through November 30.

Hyatt House and Hyatt Place stays completed between by January 31, 2019 earn 1000 American AAdvantage miles in addition to the regular points or miles that would be earned from the stay.

Hyatt Place Lobby

Registration is required by November 30. You enter both your Hyatt number and AAdvantage number to register.

Award stays now count as eligible rates so if you’re using points you’ll still get 1000 AAdvantage miles. This bonus can be earned up to 10 times — once per stay, and only one room per stay.

I wouldn’t choose a Hyatt Place or Hyatt House because of 1000 extra American Airlines miles which I’d value at $15 but I’ll definitely take the miles — it’s worth registering just in case you wind up with a qualifying stay — for bookings I’d make anyway.

  1. Not worth 1000 miles for a horrible breakfast and a sub par stay
    though there are a handful of decent new builds

  2. I booked a stay with points about 10 days ago for November 3/4
    Do I need to rebook it after I register for the promo?
    And I am applying now for the Hyatt credit card.
    Does it make sense to rebook the room after I receive the card or just add it to my profile?
    Thank you

  3. Nope, I am not going out of my way for this. I just stayed in one of the brand new Hyatt Places. What a stinker. You cannot believe how much smaller the rooms are. Think Hampton Inn.

  4. How does it stack with the current promotion? That is for Hyatt Regency and Grand Hyatt. Am I missing something?
