Tutorial Hyatt My Elite Rate 20% off

Hyatt Gold Passport offers elite members a 20% off My Elite Rate for some hotels on some dates. All Platinum and Diamond members can access My Elite Rate when logged into Hyatt.com member account on a desktop or laptop computer. My Elite Rates also load through the Hyatt mobile app.

[Ten minutes after publishing update: Originally this article stated My Elite Rate would not load through Hyatt mobile app. Turned out I was not logged into my account. I just found and booked a Hyatt Gold Passport My Elite Rate on my iPhone. Since I booked using the Hyatt mobile app, I get an additional 1,000 points for the stay. Hyatt mobile app 1,000 points booking bonus promotion October 1-December 31, 2014].

If you are a Hyatt Visa card member, then you have Hyatt Gold Passport Platinum status and qualify for My Elite Rate discount.

When you are logged into Hyatt.com with your Hyatt Gold Passport number, then My Elite Rate shows up, if available, when searching room rates using no special rate codes like AAA, senior and corporate codes.

Here are room rates for downtown Denver hotels with Hyatt Regency and Grand Hyatt shown as the first two results when I search Denver, Colorado for Saturday, October 11, 2014 for one night.

 

Hyatt Denver BAR-10-11-14

  • Hyatt Regency Denver at Colorado Convention Center $219
  • Grand Hyatt Denver $259

Hyatt.com requires the elite member to Sign In to see Hyatt Gold Passport  My Elite Rate discounts when checking for hotels.

After I sign in to my Hyatt Gold Passport account I see these rates:

Hyatt Denver elite rate-10-11-14

  • Hyatt Regency Denver at Colorado Convention Center $176
  • Grand Hyatt Denver $208

Interesting to see there are whole number dollar rates shown with no cents.

20% off $219 is $175.20 for Hyatt Regency Denver. 20% off $259 is $207.20 for Grand Hyatt Denver. Hyatt rounds up in both cases in the screen shot above to next highest dollar. Hyatt fails the California Common Core math standards students must exhibit in grade school work for rounding numbers.

Hyatt Den My Elite 10-11-14

My Elite Rate is a great deal for Hyatt members when you need a hotel and the rate is available for a 20% discount.

The actual My Elite Rate shown in the fine print rate breakdown is $175.20 for the night which is 20% off $219 Hyatt Daily Rate.

 

Take Note on using Hyatt.com website

During the course of writing this article, I was going back and forth between being signed into Hyatt.com, signing out and timing out when I stayed off the site and came back after several minutes delay. There were a number of times when the Hyatt.com page showed my name and showed I was signed into my account, yet the My Elite Rate did not appear for these Denver hotels.

My recommendation if you are searching for My Elite Rate and not seeing any, sign out of Hyatt.com, close your browser and start the Hyatt search over with a new sign in. I was not seeing Hyatt Gold Passport My Elite Rate for hotels where I knew the discount rate was available due to a technical or security issue with my browsing pattern. Restarting the search with a new browser session and new sign in worked to restore My Elite Rate function for hotel searches.

  1. I think that this is my favorite BA blog. Thanks for all the helpful, consumer-oriented information. One thing that the flyertalk wiki and posts I’ve read in that thread do not point out is that some, or at least one, Asia-based hotels sometimes offer even more generous elite rates. One hotel seems to average a rounded 30% off the Hyatt Daily rate. I’ve stayed there roughly 10 nights this year.

  2. @TokyoHyattFan – I have not seen anything about the My Elite Rate offer for 2015. I assume it will remain. No rational reason for my assumption. Just my feeling.
