Today, World of Hyatt announced the return of the global Bonus Journeys promotion, providing members the opportunity to kick-start 2022 with 2,022 Bonus Points for every two qualifying nights, plus an extra bonus for World of Hyatt Credit Cardmembers.
This promotion has been in the rumor mill for some time, and now it is officially announced with all of the details.
- World of Hyatt members can register now through March 15, 2022, to earn 2,022 Bonus Points for every two qualifying nights after registration, for up to 20 nights from January 15 through April 20, 2022 (Thus, a maximum of 20,220 Bonus Points). Eligible nights do not need to be consecutive.
- Included in the promotion are participating Hyatt hotels and resorts worldwide across 19 brands, participating M life Rewards destinations, Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) hotels and Lindblad Expeditions. However, the offer is not valid at AMR Collection Resorts.
- World of Hyatt consumer and business credit cardmembers can earn an additional 1,000 Bonus Points per eligible stay, after registration, up to 10 stays during the promotion period, at 180+ participating hotels across 10 U.S. cities including Boston; Chicago; Dallas; Denver; Los Angeles; Nashville, Tenn.; New York City; San Francisco; Seattle; and Washington, D.C. Cardmembers can earn a maximum of 10,000 Bonus points under this offer. For a list of participating hotels, visit here.
Bonus Points earned through Bonus Journeys are on top of the five Base Points members already earn for every eligible $1 USD spent on qualifying nights and more. Members must register by March 15, 2022, and before their stay to start earning Bonus Points on qualifying activity during the promotion period, and eligible stays must be completed between January 15 and April 20, 2022.
As is the case with other Hyatt promotions, the Bonus Journeys promotion can be stacked with other ongoing promotions.
Some additional points:
For the purpose of this promotion and bonus offer, an “Eligible Night” is defined as any night where a member is paying an Eligible Rate or redeems a free night award.
For purposes of this promotion and bonus offer, consecutive nights at the same hotel constitute one stay (even if you check out and check back in).
Only the room occupied by the member will count toward this promotion and bonus offer. You must provide your World of Hyatt membership number at the time of check-in for each stay.
Please allow two to three weeks after check out for Bonus Points to be posted to your World of Hyatt account.

Two questions that I am confident you will ask: First, if a stay begins before January 15, or ends after April 20, do the nights that are within the promo period still count for the Bonus Journey promo? Second, same scenario – will the stay still get the 1,000 bonus points for cardholders? This is the answer I received from Hyatt Corporate: Only Eligible Nights between January 15 and April 20, 2022 on stays completed by April 20, 2022 will count toward the promotion.
So, what are your travel plans for 2022? I have a trip to Japan and Korea in the works for June, and one to Mexico for October, but not much more than that at the moment. I’ve had a whirlwind of trips these past few months (Costa Rica, Egypt, Hungary, Hawaii and Chile), so I’m at a short hiatus at the moment.
