Get a 15% rebate on World of Hyatt redemptions until 8th October (and buy points with a 30% bonus)

Are we about to see hotel loyalty schemes rushing to offer discounted redemption rates?

World of Hyatt is first out of the gate.

Until 8th October, you will receive a 15% rebate on all completed World of Hyatt redemption nights.  This includes Small Luxury Hotels redemptions.

You will also receive free parking on all redemptions, at hotels where parking would otherwise cost extra.

There are four things you need to note:

this is a rebate, not a discount.  This means that you need to have the full amount of points in your account before you can book.  15% of the total cost will be returned to your account after your stay.

you must register to take part.  The link to register is here.

there is a cap of 30,000 rebated points per transaction but this is very unlikely to impact you.  If it would, simply split your booking.

the rebated points will arrive 6-8 weeks after your stay

I strongly recommend registering now because registration closes early, on 31st August.  You would be kicking yourself if you decided at some point during September to make a Hyatt redemption.

If you are a few points short of what you need to make a redemption, you can buy World of Hyatt points via this linkUntil 29th July, you get a 30% bonus when you buy points.

Do existing redemption bookings count?

Yes.

The small print says: “as long as the member or cardmember successfully registers for the promotion by August 31, 2020, their redemption stay will count and they will earn Bonus Points back if they check out between July 8 and October 8, 2020.”

Even better …. if you are reading this article in late July or August and have already done a redemption stay since 8th July, you can retrospectively get the rebate.  You just need to ensure that you register by 31st August.

Does the free parking offer apply to cash bookings too?

Only for top tier Globalist members.  All other World of Hyatt members will continue to pay for car parking on cash bookings, at hotels where it is charged.  Only redemption bookings have free parking until 8th October.

Does the 15% rebate just apply to room bookings?

No.

You will also receive back 15% of any points you use for Points + Cash stays, room upgrades, dining and spa services, and Exhale classes and spa therapies.

You do NOT get a rebate if you transfer your points to airline miles.

This means that using your World of Hyatt points for in-hotel dining and spa credit now becomes even better value.  Following recent improvements in the value you get when using Hyatt points for dining and spa, this is something well worth considering.

At present, at the top end, you get $1,000 of hotel credit for 65,000 points.  Factoring in the 15% rebate, you are getting $1,000 of credit for 55,250 pointsThis is 1.81 cents (1.41p) per point of value which is excellent.

Does this offer work alongside the current ‘Bonus Journeys’ promotion?

Yes.

Hyatt is currently running an excellent triple points promotion which gets you a notional 23% rebate on your cash stays in points, starting from your 2nd stay after registration.  If you have elite status in World of Hyatt, your also receive 2,500 bonus points on your first stay.

The 2,500 points ‘first stay bonus’ for elite members triggers on reward stays as well as cash stays, and will still pay out even if you register for the 15% points rebate.

There is a separate dining offer too ….

In a separate offer, until 8th October you will receive triple World of Hyatt points if you eat or drink at a participating Hyatt property as a non-resident.

No registration is required, and triple points will post automatically.

Don’t forget that registration is required for the 15% points rebate which you can do here.

  1. Despite this discount I still find it one of the most unappealing programmes due to the difficulty in earning points in the UK and the small footprint they have outwith the USA. I’ve stayed at a couple of their properties via Amex FHR and used the resulting points for a free Hyatt Place stay, since then not done a thing with them!

      Agreed. They have a few hotels in major European cities but generally their portfolio is very weak in Europe compared to Marriott Bonvoy.

      I’d be very keen on Hyatt if they had more properties and a way to earn their points from credit card spend in the UK.

        Even becoming an AMEX transfer partner would open up possibilities
