Hyatt’s new promo, which will run September 1 through November 30, is bonus points based on number of nights stayed.
They’re offering 5000 bonus points after 5 nights and then 10,000 additional bonus points for each incremental 5 nights stayed during the promotion period — up to a maximum of 35 nights.
Registration won’t be available until August 15 and will close October 31.
I generally like stay-based promotions rather than promos that award the number of nights stayed. But that’s because I tend to have shorter stays, so they benefit me most. Hyatt’s summer promotion rewarded short stays generously with bonus airline miles.
So here I’m torn. The summer promo was stay-based, better for me. This one is Hyatt Gold Passport points, what I prefer to earn for my Hyatt stays. Not the most generous points promo Hyatt has run, either. But as my grandfather used to say, a whole lot better than a hole in the head.
