Hyatt Bonus Journeys
Hyatt dropped some great news earlier in the month: triple points on any stay of 2 or more nights! You can’t start earning triple points until July 20th, but registration began on July 7th which means you can register! Read the details, but it means you’ll earn a minimum of 15x in every qualifying dollar you spend – pretty amazing and enough to incentivize me to spend cash vs points.
Breaking down triple points promo
- Must stay 2+ nights
- Must stay between July 20th and September 15, 2021
- Anything booked via Hyatt.com qualifies
- Promo works at participating MGM Resorts, Small Luxury Hotels of the World locations, and Lindblad Expeditions
- Maximum of 120k bonus points can be earned
Triple points is a multiple of how many points you’d normally which is 5x. So you’d be earning 15x points per dollar before elite bonuses. Pretty awesome
What are some of my favorite Hyatt stays?
I have used points to stay at the following properties
- Park Hyatt Buenos Aires
- Carmelo Resort – Uruguay
- Park Hyatt Siem Reap
- Park Hyatt Saigon
- Park Hyatt Washington D.C.
- Park Hyatt Vienna
- Andaz New York
- Andaz West Hollywood
- Grand Hyatt San Diego
- Grand Hyatt Atlanta Grand Suite
- Grand Hyatt Dubai
- Grand Hyatt Taipei
- Andaz Abu Dhabi
- Hyatt Centric Santa Barbara
- Grand Hyatt Taipei
- Grand Hyatt Tokyo
- Andaz Shanghai
- Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta – all inclusive
- Alila Villas Uluwatu
How many points you’d earn if you stayed 2 nights with/without status.
Let’s say you stayed at a $150 a night hotel with no status
- 2 nights = $300
- No elite status earns 5 points per dollar
- $300 x 5 WOH points per dollar = 1500 points
- 2x bonus = 3000 points
- total = 4500 points
You’d end up almost earning a free category 1 night after a two night stay. Pretty awesome.
Same hotel with top tier Globalist status at $150 a night
- 2 nights = $300
- Globalist status gets 30% bonus
- $300 x 6.5 WOH/$ = 1950 points
- 2x bonus = 3900
- total = 5850
Don’t forget that Chase Ultimate Rewards are a transfer part of Hyatt
You can instantly move Chase Ultimate Rewards 1:1 into World of Hyatt. I have done this countless times and it provides a great way to shore up a Hyatt account.
This promo is good enough that it’ll not only incentivize me to stay at Hyatts, but begs the question of do I use points or cash?
I value Hyatt points somewhere between 1.5 and 2cents a piece. Since I’m globalist I’ll be earning roughly 20 points on every dollar I spend which equates to 30 to 40% off every night I pay for with vs points. Additionally it saves points to be used when such a lucrative offer isn’t active.
