Hyatt has announced two new promotions, each beginning with the second stay after February 15, 2020 and running through May 15, 2020.
BONUS JOURNEYS PROMOTION
The first promotion is a double point promo called Bonus Journeys.
Beginning today, World of Hyatt members can register to earn Bonus Points from February 15 through May 15, 2020 at over 1,000 participating locations worldwide starting with their second stay during that period.
All members can earn Double Points on eligible spend at all 17 World of Hyatt brand hotels, plus all participating MGM and Small Luxury Hotels of the World hotels as well as Lindblad Expedition experiences.
To participate in this promotion you must:
Be a World of Hyatt member and register for Bonus Journeys before March 31, 2020 (membership is complimentary).
Include your World of Hyatt membership number with your reservation
Stay at participating locations with a checkout date between February 15 and May 15, 2020.
1,500 BONUS POINTS FOR WEEKEND STAYS
There is a second promotion, also running from February 15 to May 15, which is only for World of Hyatt and Hyatt Credit card members.
World of Hyatt Credit Cardmembers and Hyatt Credit Cardmembers can earn an additional 1,500 Bonus Points for each qualifying stay that includes a Friday, Saturday or Sunday night (also starting with the second stay) (must use the World of Hyatt or Hyatt credit card to earn the 1,500 bonus).
The above promotions stack with each other as well as ongoing promotions such as 500 new hotel bonus point promotion.
WORLD OF HYATT Visa Credit Card
If you were thinking of getting a Chase World of Hyatt Credit card, this might be the perfect time. Among other things, you can earn 25,000 Bonus Points after spending $3,000 on purchases within the first three months of account opening; earn an additional 25,000 Bonus Points after spending $6,000 total on purchases within the first six months of account opening. If you wonder how I travel so much to so many beautiful Hyatt hotels, I owe a lot of credit (no pun intended) to this credit card.
Though I dislike the fact that this promotion begins with the second stay, it is otherwise a good promotion and rewards paid stays rather than award stays. Of course I have a 6 day stay which begins February 15th, that won’t count for this promotion unless perhaps I book a cheap stay for the night of February 14th.
Many of my bookings this spring are on points and the double point promotion doesn’t do anything for me there (unless I reconsider whether to book paid stays instead of point stays. . .)
I also am looking forward to the 1,500 bonus for weekend stays, as I tend to do a lot of quick weekend getaways and staycations. I wonder if you can get 1,500 bonus points multiple times in one weekend by staying at different hotels on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights? I don’t see why not. . .
