UPDATE – APRIL 2024:  This article is now out of date, but don’t worry.  We produce a monthly summary of the top hotel bonus point offers – please click HERE or use the ‘Hotel Offers’ menu above.

Hyatt has launched its first promotion for 2023, which is another run-out for Bonus Journeys.

Full details, and the registration link, are here.

It runs from 20th March to 26th May, and is a very simple one – you will earn 3,000 bonus World of Hyatt points for every two nights you stay.

Reward nights DO count.

You must register by 30th April.

Autumn World of Hyatt promotion

There is one catch. Your first stay during the promotional period, after registration, does not count.

There is also a cap of 30 nights (45,000 bonus points) although for UK readers of HfP I doubt this would be a problem.

I’m never very happy with clauses like this. After all, someone doing a six night stay would be at risk of losing 9,000 World of Hyatt points (worth around £120) which would give you a strong incentive to do a cheap mattress run if you had a qualifying hotel nearby.

As well as Hyatt-branded hotels, it is also valid at participating M life Rewards destinations, Small Luxury Hotels of the World hotels and Lindblad Expeditions.

There is an extra carrot for holders of US-issued World of Hyatt credit cards but I have not covered that given our UK readership.

What is this promotion worth?

With 3,000 bonus points for every two nights (not necessarily consecutive), and based on our 1.3p valuation of a World of Hyatt point, you are getting a bonus worth £19.50 per night.

This is pretty good going, especially if your stays at cheaper Hyatt properties.

Park Hyatt Vienna Hyatt American Express cashback offer

This will double up with the £100 American Express cashback offer

Hyatt recently brought back its very generous American Express cashback deal.

This is the most generous of the cashback offers that regularly pop up on American Express cards.

Even the dates work well. Until 30th April, so you may be able to use it when there is some sun around, you will receive £100 back when you spend £250 at participating Hyatt hotels.

As usual, you need to see if you have the offer showing on any of your American Express cards and then save it to lock it in.

There are a few things to note about the Amex cashback deal:

  • it is only valid at selected Hyatt properties in Europe
  • Small Luxury Hotels properties are not included
  • you need to stay by the end of April
  • it is clear that cumulative spend does count

Don’t forget Hyatt Prive too

You can combine one or both of the deals above with Hyatt Prive, the benefits programme offered by luxury travel agents including our partner Emyr Thomas.

Hyatt Prive gets you the following benefits – at no additional cost, compared to the usual Best Flexible Rate – for stays at:

  • all Park Hyatt hotels
  • all Andaz hotels
  • some Grand Hyatt hotels
  • some Hyatt Regency hotels
  • some hotels in The Unbound Collection

You get:

  • $100 property credit per room per stay ($50 or $75 at some cheaper Grand Hyatt and Hyatt Regency hotels)
  • one category room upgrade confirmed within 24 hours of booking
  • daily full breakfast for two
  • early check-in (from 9am) and late check-out (to 4pm) subject to availability
  • welcome gift and letter

Because all Hyatt Prive rates are ‘pay on departure’, you can be sure that they will combine with the cashback. All Hyatt Prive bookings qualify to earn World of Hyatt points and elite night credit.

Click here to learn more about Hyatt Prive, and use the form here to contact Emyr with booking enquiries.

Remember to register for Hyatt’s ‘Bonus Journeys’ promotion here. Registration closes on 30th April but you have until 26th May to stay.

    I think “earn” has been missed from this: “ you will 3,000 bonus World of Hyatt points for every two nights you stay”

  • RobH not Rob says:

    Reward nights count? That I like !

  • gtellez says:

    I am thinking on booking the Hyatt Regency Manchester (I usually stay at the Kimpton or Innside, but with the Amex promotion, the Hyatt is significantly cheaper on my dates). Does someone know if it is included in Hyatt Prive?

  • Charlie T. says:

    “This email has been sponsored by Hilton”?!?

  • Gordon says:

    Do existing booking count? As me and the OH have booked a few properties for our 3 weeks in Las Vegas, California. (Hope the snow has disappeared). & Mexico in April. Vegas hotel booked via Emyr.

  • VALittleRed says:

    So to get the first 3000 bonus points you need to stay 3 nights? I appreciate not necessarily consecutive

    • Rob says:

      Yes, and actually they can’t be consecutive! Because if they were it would be the first stay …

      • VALittleRed says:

        Oh yes didn’t take that in clearly with ‘stay’. Need to be careful there then as you could book a 7 night stay somewhere and get nothing. Knowing IT as well if you broke up the stay into separate bookings the hotel would no doubt merge them again for your convenience (avoid checking in/out) all counting as one stay an no bonus points!

        • Lady London says:

          The way to sort that is you and your partner book alternate nights. Finding another Hyatt close by to switch with would give faster accrual if your partner’s ok to switch midstay. But Hyatt’s small footprint in UK&Europe makes that way of ensuring consecutive nights don’t get treated as a single stay, hard to do.

          Have been eyeing Hyatt for a while now to dump IHG in favour of. But as soon as I see “from 2nd stay” on any promotion I stop reading. It just gives a cheap mean impression.

  • BSI1978 says:

    Slightly OT, but stayed at the Hyatt Stratford last weekend, 4th Hyatt stay this calendar year. Received 10k ‘bonus points’ after the stay, and whilst I’m obviously not complaining, I can’t for the life of me remember what offer this relates to or having signed up previously!

    • Anthony says:

      the previous (current) promo is 10k points after every 5 nights

    • TGLoyalty says:

      How did you find it? Has it been refurbished at all?

      • BSI1978 says:

        Enjoyed it more than I expected, so much so I have 2 more bookings there over the coming weeks.

        Helped that Emyr was able to get me an upgrade and the $100 F&B spend helps.

        Suite had been refurbished along with the common areas from what I could tell; the gym whilst small also had that new paint smell and was clean/tidy.

        With the Lizzie line now running I think it offers a compelling option Vs more centrally located hotels.

        My only gripe would be the air con units which can’t seem to be dimmed automatically!

  • MartS says:

    Do other people have the Amex Hyatt offer on their cards (spend £250, get £100 back) as it’s not showing on mine (BA and Platinum)?

    • Rob says:

      It could have hit the registration cap, and it would only have been on one card regardless (in my experience).
