A few days ago I wrote about a great promotion for Hyatt credit card members. For all point reservations between February 17 and July 31, 2015, you will get a 20% rebate on all points redeemed. In my post, I explained that there were two unfortunate caveats to the promotion:
- You had to be a have the Hyatt credit card by January 30, 2015 to be eligible, and
- Only new reservations booked after February 17, 2015 would apply
This was based on how I interpreted the terms. But, apparently, those two caveats no longer apply, which is amazing!!!!
In the post, I told readers to cancel and rebook their reservation (if they were able to) and a few readers commented this was not necessary. That was confirmed by View from the Wing that all reservations count during the promotional timeframe regardless of when it was made.
Additionally, Frequent Miler was able to confirm that you can still apply for the Hyatt credit card to be eligible for the offer. You just need to ensure to register for the promotion by the March 31 deadline (like everyone else!). I am still trying to get clarification around this, but I assume this means that you must be approved for the credit card by the end of March (not necessarily apply by this date – but I am not sure).
This is a smart offer on Hyatt’s part as it is going to get people to apply for their co-branded credit card. The best offer for this card is currently two free nights at ANY Hyatt hotel plus a $50 statement credit. The two free nights expire a year from when they hit your account. To apply for this offer, you need to make a mock Hyatt reservation and you should see an add for this offer on the checkout page. The publicly available offer still gives you the two free nights but not the $50 statement credit. Additionally, this card gives you a free category 1-4 night at each cardmember anniversary. There is a $75 annual fee, but waived the first year.
This promotion actually might get me to apply for the card. I’ve been holding out since the two free nights have a one year expiration date, but this offer might be too good to pass up. For example, I have a four night stay at the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek which is costing a total of 120,000 points! Applying for the card will give me 24,000 points back on top of the regular sign up bonus! And since this offer goes through July 31 there might be more opportunities for a rebate! My only concern is where I am going to use those two free nights…
