Hyatt Place or Summerfield Suites $20 MasterCard for Weeknight Stay

Bad news first:  This was not a good deal for 2 of the 4 hotels I checked tonight in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The Offer: Get a $20 prepaid MasterCard per stay at any Hyatt Place or Hyatt Summerfield Suites for a hotel stay including at least one night on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday between September 21 and November 25, 2009.

The GFTCRD rate did not show in my searches of Hyatt rates unless the promotional code is entered. The links provided in this post prefill the special rate offer code.

Terms: Must pay Hyatt Daily Rate and use promotion code offer “GFTCRD”. The Hyatt Daily rate is generally a higher rate than the Hyatt.com prepaid, nonrefundable rate or the AAA rate. Only one gift card may be earned per stay regardless of number of rooms booked, but multiple gift cards can be earned for separate stays during the promotional period. The offer says it is not combinable with other promotions, although I doubt this offer would disqualify the Gold Passport member for free nights,  double elite credit, or airline miles.

Loyalty Traveler Promotion Value Key = Variable 1 to 2 out of 5 keys depending on rate differences.

 This deal is no deal unless you can find rates where the promotional rate is not $15 to $20+ more than other available rates.

  1. I think I ran across the same promo a couple days ago, and when I looked at the Fremont HP, I found that I’d save about $5 on a planned stay over the best prepaid rate at the time. That didn’t seem to be worth the hassle of having to deal with a gift card.
