Hyatt is out with their fall promotion and it’s for a very limited period of less than two months.
- Register by November 10
- Earn 3,000 bonus points every 3 eligible nights for checkouts running October 6 – November 30, 2023
- An additional 1,000 bonus points for Hyatt co-brand credit card cardmembers for every three eligible nights at a subset of hotels during the promotion period, earnable up to 7 times
In some sense it’s 1,000 bonus points per night (worth around $14), more for cardmembers – fine though hardly revolutionary, akin to double points on a $200 night stay – but you’re leaving any nights not divisible by three on the table. I suppose this promotion might influence my stay decisions:
- If I had an exactly three night stay to book
- Or already had 2 Hyatt nights during the promotion period and had a one night stay to book
Marriott’s fall promotion is exceptionally weak, offering just 1,500 bonus points per stay (worth less than $10 even on long stays) plus 3,000 bonus points for every 3 hotel brands stayed at September 12 through December 6, 2023.
Hilton, on the other hand, is offering up to triple points: double points in all markets, and triple points in select cities, September 6 through December 31. That’s a much richer promotion, though Hilton’s base earning is weaker than in competing programs and needs to do this to come close to even.
You should register for all of these offers regardless of whether or not you plan to stay at a given chain during the relevant time period, because a stay might crop up, and you will never remember to go back and register later. It’s easy and quick to register now, and if you don’t you may wind up losing out on points later.
