Hyatt Gold Passport has some high value bonus miles offers for stays this summer. The 1,000 airline frequent flyer bonus miles per night promotion is from June 15 through September 30 for these nine airlines:
Monday, July 19 Update – American Airlines AAdvantage is not a participating airline for the 1,000 bonus miles per night promotion according to this announcement from Friday, June 16. Apparently members who had signed up for AA did receive the additional AAdvantage 1,000 bonus miles retroactive for stays since June 15, however, Gold Passport members will not be allowed to sign up for the 1,000 AA miles per night for the remainder of the promotion period. There is still the 3,000 AA miles per stay through October 15, 2010 for up to 20 stays. (See below)

And even when choosing miles Gold Passport Diamond members are still eligible to receive bonus points Diamond benefit for a closed Regency Club (2,500 points) or bed preference unavailability (5,000 points).
Stackable Miles Bonus Hyatt Promotions for American Airlines and United Airlines
In addition to this offer there has been confirmation by Hyatt Passport Concierge that the 1,000 bonus miles per night may be combined with other concurrent promotions for American Airlines miles or United Airlines elite member mile bonus.
American Airlines 3,000 AAdvantage Miles per Hyatt Stay
Hyatt has a separate promotion for American Airlines to earn up to 60,000 AAdvantage miles for hotel stays from July 6 through October 15, 2010.
Gold Passport members choosing AAdvantage miles earn 2,500 bonus miles per stay in addition to the regular 500 miles per stay for a total 3,000 miles per stay for a maximum of 20 stays with this promotion.
Combine the two AA promotions and the Gold Passport member earns 3,000 miles per stay plus 1,000 miles per night through September 30. A one night stay earns 4,000 AAdvantage miles.
- 1-night stay = 4,000 AAdvantage miles
- 2-night stay = 5,000 AAdvantage miles
- 3-night stay = 6,000 AAdvantage miles
- 4-night stay = 7,000 AAdvantage miles
Hopefully you see the pattern here. One night stays are the way to max out this promotion offer at minimum cost.
There have been several postings on FlyerTalk in the past couple of days to clarify whether the 1,000 bonus miles per night promotion can be combined with the AAdvantage 2,500 bonus miles per stay promotion. Gold Passport Concierge confirmed these are stackable offers in this July 15 FlyerTalk post.
Mileage Plus elite members have had an offer for 2,000 bonus Mileage Plus miles per Hyatt brand hotel stay running all year from November 1, 2009 through January 31, 2011.
Gold Passport Concierge posted on FlyerTalk the new promotion may be combined with the older promotion for UA elites.
- 1-night stay = 3,500 Mileage Plus miles
- 2-night stay = 4,500 Mileage Plus miles
- 3-night stay = 5,500 Mileage Plus miles
- 4-night stay = 6,500 Mileage Plus miles
Hyatt hotel stays seem to be a cheaper way to earn miles than flying these days.
