A FlyerTalk thread started yesterday about the targeted Hyatt Gold Passport promotion emails sent yesterday. Lucky at One Mile at a Time posted about his targeted offer for 50,000 points after 20 nights at Hyatt Hotels between September 1 to November 30, 2014.

Hyatt GP 50K

He included a link to the offer. I tried the link and received the message that I was not eligible.

Honestly, I did not like this same Endless Possibilities offer when it came out in fall 2013 since 20 nights is a pace far beyond the average traveler. This year the offer does not include MGM Resort properties in Las Vegas, so an even more restrictive offer.

2,000 bonus points on three stays is my offer for 6,000 bonus points

I received my targeted offer less than two hours ago at 3:36pm California time.

I am Hyatt Gold Passport Diamond. This offer pleases me. Three one-night stays in a 3-month period is totally achievable for me and offers a better bonus than the 50,000 points offer which would require 6 hotel nights to earn 6,500 points. I can earn 6,000 bonus points in three nights.

Terms & Conditions

You will receive 2,000 Hyatt Gold Passport bonus points after your first Eligible Stay, an additional 2,000 Hyatt Gold Passport bonus points after your second Eligible Stay, and an additional 2,000 Hyatt Gold Passport bonus points after your third Eligible Stay from September 1, 2014 through November 30, 2014. A maximum 6,000 bonus points may be earned, regardless of the number of stays completed during the offer period.  For the purpose of this offer, an “Eligible Stay” is defined in the terms and conditions of Hyatt Gold Passport, except that stays at M life resorts do not count as Eligible Stays under this offer. Hyatt Gold Passport members will only receive Eligible Stay credit for their room, regardless of the number of rooms paid. You must provide your Hyatt Gold Passport membership number at the time of check-in and choose points or miles for your stay. Hyatt Gold Passport will automatically track Eligible Stays when you provide your Hyatt Gold Passport membership number. Please allow two to three weeks after your stay for bonus points to be posted to your Hyatt Gold Passport account.

Here are versions of Hyatt Gold Passport targeted offers on FlyerTalk:

  • After completing your tenth Eligible Night from September 1, 2014 through November 30, 2014, you will receive Hyatt Gold Passport Diamond membership, valid through February 2016.
  • 2000 points after one stay; 2,000 points maximum
  • 2,000 Hyatt Gold Passport® bonus points after each of your next 2 eligible stays from September 1 through November 30, 2014. That’s a total of up to 4,000 points!
  • 5000 points after one stay, 5,000 points maximum.
  • 2,000 Hyatt Gold Passport® bonus points after each of your next 3 eligible stays from September 1 through November 30, 2014. That’s a total of up to 6,000 points!
  • 8,000 Hyatt Gold Passport bonus points after you complete two Eligible Stays from September 1, 2014 through November 30, 2014. A maximum 8,000 bonus points may be earned, regardless of the number of stays completed during the offer period.
  • 10,000 points after 3 nights.
  • 50,000 points after 20 nights.

Have you received one of these offers or a different offer? Are you happy or unhappy with the targeted Hyatt Gold Passport offers?

Hyatt Gold Passport has a promotion for members of Hyatt and MGM Resorts Mlife loyalty programs staying in Las Vegas through the remainder of 2014. Earn up to 3,000 Hyatt bonus points for every three Las Vegas Mlife nights to Dec 31 2014 at 13 participating Las Vegas hotels.

The catch is you must stay 3 nights in hotels that are in the same bonus points category to earn the bonus. For example, 2 nights at Mandalay Bay and one night at MGM Grand earns 2,000 bonus points. However, stay two nights at Mandalay Bay and one night at Aria and you will not earn any bonus points since they are different bonus groups. Nights do not need to be consecutive nights and all nights through December 31, 2014 are eligible for the bonus.

The Hyatt Gold Passport email I received 15 minutes ago states Diamond Member exclusive. “As a Diamond member, you can enjoy an exclusive bonus when you purchase points:

Exclusive offer for our valued members: Enjoy up to a 40% bonus when you buy 5,000 or more points. Offer ends August 18, 2014.

  • Purchase 5,000 to 19,000 points and receive a 20% bonus
  • Purchase 20,000 to 39,000 points and receive a 30% bonus
  • Purchase 40,000 to 55,000 points and receive a 40% bonus”

Hyatt points regularly sale for $24 per 1,000 points.

This offer for Diamond and Platinum elite members reduces the purchase price from $24 per 1,000 points. For a limited time until August 18 you can buy Hyatt points with up to 40% bonus points.

  • 20% bonus – Purchase 6,000 to 22,800 points and pay $20.00 per 1,000 points.
  • 30% bonus – Purchase 26,000 to 50.700 points and pay $18.46 per 1,000 points.
  • 40% bonus – Purchase 56,000 to 77,000 points and pay $17.14 per 1,000 points.

The Daily Getaways offer in June had 40,000 Hyatt points for $373.50 ($9.34 per 1,000 points), but there were only 15 sets of points for sale. This offer is a nice promotion from Hyatt Gold passport with no mouse click competition to buy discount points. This is one of the best deals I have seen for Hyatt points purchases. Hyatt Gold Passport sometimes runs a 25% discount which reduces the cost of points to $18 per 1,000 points. Bonus points are a better deal since members buying points typically need a lot of points to get an extra night or two at a high cost hotel.

This post compares Hyatt and Starwood brands average room rates to see if there is a significant competitive advantage to Hyatt or Starwood for the frequent guest loyal to one or the other hotel chain.

Hyatt Hotels and Starwood Hotels are hotel loyalty competitors for similar types of business and leisure traveler guests who desire upscale and upper upscale hotel stays. The hotel loyalty programs allow these frequent guests to earn points for free nights. Both hotel chains offer a number of luxury hotels in their chain’s portfolio for discount hotel rates through award stays.

The primary difference between these two hotel chains is size. Starwood Hotels listed 1,180 properties on its 2014-Q1 investor report. Hyatt lists 554 properties. Starwood lists 14 Vacation Ownership timeshare properties and Hyatt lists 25 residential and vacation properties.

Starwood Hotels 2014 Q1 Average Daily Rates

  • Sheraton $151.61 (433 hotels)
  • Westin $187.06 (198 hotels)

  • Le Meridien (95 hotels) $186.14
  • W Hotels (45 hotels) $293.70
  • Four Points (182 hotels) $113.93
  • Aloft (80 hotels)  $110.49
  • Element (11 hotels) no ADR data

Hyatt Hotels 2014 Q1 Average Daily Rates

  • Hyatt Hotels Systemwide ADR = $182.04
  • Park Hyatt $363.11 (28 hotels) 32
  • Andaz $270.93 (9 hotels) 11
  • Grand Hyatt $241.02 (37 hotels) 40

There have been so many changes to hotel loyalty programs in the past three years that I needed to check again to see which hotel programs count award stays for elite membership.

Redeeming points for award stays while earning elite membership credit comes in handy when you are trying to reach 25 to 30 stays or 60 to 75 nights in your favorite hotel chain in a calendar year.

Hotel Stays and/or Nights completed in a calendar year qualification for high hotel loyalty program elite membership.

Hyatt Gold Passport has 28 airline partners for earning miles with Hyatt brand hotel stays or for Hyatt points-to-miles exchange.

Earning Miles instead of Hyatt Gold Passport points

Hyatt Gold Passport members can choose to earn miles instead of Hyatt Gold Passport points by presenting your frequent flyer number to the hotel front desk at check-in.

Miles are an option I recommend only if Hyatt stays are infrequent or if your hotel spend is less than $200 for the stay. Hyatt Gold Passport members normally earn 5 points per dollar in hotel spend. Assume a one-time $80 Hyatt brand hotel night for a member without elite status earns 400 points. Earning miles in your frequent flyer program will add 500 miles and extend the expiration date on miles in your frequent flyer account. 500 miles is better value than 400 Hyatt points assuming there is not a better Hyatt bonus points promotion you can earn.

Only Hilton HHonors hotel loyalty program allows members to earn both miles and points on each hotel stay. All the other major hotel loyalty programs require the member to choose between earning miles or points for each hotel stay.
