Hyatt Platinum until 2014 for $59 – now available again

A few weeks ago I posted about a way of getting Hyatt Gold Passport Platinum membership until February 2014 for just $59. This was via a paid subscription to frequent flier community Milepoint.

Unfortunately, the $59 package sold out before most were able to take advantage. A limited supply of new memberships have just been launched this morning, though, so if you jump in today you should get lucky.

Hyatt Gold Passport

My wife has just become Hyatt Platinum via a different promotion. When her physical card arrived, it came with an extra benefit – a Platinum Extras Award Certificate. This entitles her to either:

  • a food or beverage amenity, or
  • 1,000 bonus Gold Passport points (worth about £10) when she next pays for lunch or dinner in a Hyatt hotel. or
  • a free upgrade to a Club room when she next stays at a Hyatt in the US or Canada

On the assumption that you will also receive this certificate if you get Hyatt Platinum via the Milepoint promotion, it makes the $59 package look even more interesting.

Full details of Hyatt Gold Passport can be found at the Hyatt website here.
