Hyatt’s New End of Year Promotion is Out: Register Now for Double or Triple Points

Hyatt’s end of year promotion is out: Register by October 31, and earn double points September 15 – December 15 or triple points at Hyatt Place properties starting with your second stay. Double points are earned even at partner MGM and Small Luxury Hotels of the World hotels.

Maximum earning from the promotion is 200,000 points — 100,000 double points ($20,000 spend at non-Hyatt Place properties) and 100,000 triple points ($10,000 spend at Hyatt Place properties).

This promotion stacks with:

Hilton’s end of year promotion is double points plus triple points for co-brand credit card customers. That’s pretty similar, except Hyatt is choosing a brand for triple points and not getting funding for the promotion from their credit card partner.

IHG’s new Accelerate offer is one of their weakest yet. Marriott’s latest promotion ends mid-September and we’ve yet to hear about anything coming after.

I expect 2018 and 2019 to be peak years for hotel rates and occupancy. 2020 may moderate. Perhaps we’ll see more lucrative and creative hotel promos to help put heads in beds come 2021.

Definitely register for this offer, even if you aren’t a Hyatt regular. Hotel chains have regularly required staying twice before earning promotions as a way of saving costs and to prevent paying for infrequent guests unlikely incentivized by the promotional offering.

Still you may stay twice during the promotion period without having planned it, and you’ll never remember to come back and register later — in other words you could wind up accidentally picking up extra points that you’ll lose out on if you don’t register now.

  1. How do these promotions work when booking the “Double your points” room rate? I realize booking that rate type rarely makes sense, but would doing so during this promotion give you 4x?

  2. It is so quiet in here there is little doubt that the WoH Q4 promo that post announces is not well received at all. Given how lackluster this promo is, I can understand one saying the following about *Hyatt*

    …”I expect 2018 and 2019 to be peak years for hotel rates and occupancy. 2020 may moderate. Perhaps we’ll see more lucrative and creative hotel promos to help put heads in beds come 2021″…

    The suggestion, which made constantly on this site, is that no hotel loyalty program currently offers promos that are lucrative ‘enough’ because hotels are full.

    However, consider Hilton’s current Q4 promo, which:
    — kicks in on the very first stay (vs. 2nd stay for the Hyatt promo)
    — awards 3x to anyone with a HH AMEX card, which means most people (vs 3x ONLY if one stays Hyatt Place).
    — awards 54x is you are a HH Diamond, meaning that a $100 stay would earn you 5,400 points!!!
    — runs until January 5, 2020 (vs. December 15 for Hyatt’s promo).

    In short, when it comes to HHonors promos, there is no need to look to 2021, because the program’s promos cannot get any more lucrative than they are *right now* without getting ridiculous. Perhaps it’s Hyatt’s promos that might, at long last, improve when 2021 rolls in…

  3. Downside of Hilton promos – one has to stay in Hilton properties and have the worst top tier benefits.

    Hard pass on Hilton Zimbabwepoints.

  4. BTW, anyone who plays the mile/point game and does not have the Hilton Honors Gold status — the best mid-tier status in the business with guaranteed free breakfast — isn’t playing the game with a “full deck”.

    Considering the ton of value that one gets from just the guaranteed free breakfast and from a promo like Hilton’s current Q4 promo that gets you 3x for having a co-branded card (for 50x per stay), it is a no-brainer… really.

  5. Definition of a troll – if you don’t like the brand or topic being discussed, redirect every thread to focus on your own dogmatic beliefs
