Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Last chance to register for Hyatt’s ‘Discover The Possibilities’ promotion

A quick heads up that October 31st is the last day to register for the Hyatt Gold Passport ‘Discover The Possibilities’ promotion.

The web page for full details and registration is here.

The promotion runs until the end of November, so make sure you register if you think you might have some Hyatt stays coming up next month.

The bonuses run like this:

Stay 5 nights, get 5,000 bonus points (1,000 per stay)

Stay 10 nights, get an additional 10,000 bonus points (so 2,000 per stay for stays 6-10)

Stay 15 nights, get an additional 15,000 bonus points (so 3,000 per stay for stays 11-15)

Stay 20 nights, get an additional 20,000 bonus points (so 4,000 per stay for stays 16-20)

Given that I tend to value Hyatt points at £11 / 1,000, this could be a very lucrative promotion at the top end.  (The most luxurious Hyatt properties are 22,000 points, so assuming a price of £250 per night, that gets you to £11.)  For stays 16-20 you would effectively be getting £44 of free night per night.

The real value here is that the rewards kick in per night, not per stay.  Most hotel promotions are based on stays, which counts against you if you tend to stay 3-4 nights or more at a time.  This can be achieved with just one 3-week stay in theory!

    Age old problem….why join a scheme when they don’t have properties where you need to be.

    At least with airlines you can earn on one and spend on another.

    Did Hyatt ever take the UK seriously?

      They take London seriously. And, whilst I haven’t stayed there for 5 years, the Hyatt in Birmingham was the best UK business hotel I had ever stayed in outside London.

      Things can change quickly, though. They could easily pick up a few management contracts quickly by buying a company that owns a few Crowne Plaza franchises, for example. Look at how quickly they picked up a decent pile of properties in France in the last couple of years.

    I’ve had very good Hyatt experiences, in Philly and Indian Wells. I would gladly stay with them again, but they don’t even offer airport hotels in the UK.

    My father’s Hyatt miles were expiring (2 weeks in Cancun), so I advised him to transfer them to BA. He’s not likely to see the inside of another Hyatt again.
