Earlier today I wrote about a way to purchase Hyatt gift cards for 12.7% off. However, the higher discounted gift cards are now sold out so there really isn’t much of a deal anymore. Also, another blogger CanadianKilometers pointed out that you can purchase Hyatt gift cards through Hyatt directly at a discount by using promotion code FTU15. This code will give you 10% off AND if you are making a purchase with an American Express OPEN credit card you’ll get 5% back as a statement credit (up to $10,000 per card per calendar year). So let’s say you purchase a $1,000 plastic gift card, it will cost you $900 (shipping cost aside) and you’ll get $45 back as a statement credit. Instead of the 10% back, you’ll be getting 14.5% off the purchase of gift cards. Originally, I thought this promotion expired around Thanksgiving, but it looks like there was another promo code available!
This promotion expires tomorrow, December 31, 2015 and you must use promotion code FTU15 at checkout. I only see one option currently working with the current promotion code:
- Plastic gift card – Gift card delivered via UPSP which means free shipping! Similar to the eGift cards, these are also only currently accepted at Hyatt hotels in the U.S., Canada, and Caribbean. This option is eligible for the 5% statement credit if paying with an Amex OPEN credit card.
While this is a great deal for those paying for an upcoming stay, you can also maximize if you are using points for a free night! As long as you put all hotel charges on your room (food, activities, etc.), you can pay for those incidentals at checkout with your gift card!
Here is a list of hotels that accept both the gift cards and check. Both options have no expiration date as well.
Will you be taking advantage?
