Double World of Hyatt Points Fall 2017 — Just For You Being You

You’re good enough, you’re smart enough, and doggone it, World of Hyatt likes you — so much so that you can earn double World of Hyatt frequent guest loyalty program points per United States dollar on eligible stays at Hyatt hotel and resort properties worldwide and participating M life Rewards destinations through Sunday, December 31, 2017 — but you must register for this promotion by Thursday, November 30, 2017 as a member of the World of Hyatt frequent guest loyalty program.

Double World of Hyatt Points Fall 2017 — Just For You Being You

Earn double World of Hyatt points for all eligible stays booked on Hyatt.com or the World of Hyatt mobile software application program. Stays booked through other channels — including other Hyatt channels — are not eligible.

With your new World of Hyatt loyalty program, points add up quickly — so free nights and room upgrades are within reach.

Terms and Conditions

For the purpose of this offer, an eligible stay is defined as any stay where you are paying an eligible rate for at least one night of your stay. Only the room occupied by the member will count toward this promotion. You must provide your World of Hyatt membership number at the time of checking in to the hotel and choose points for each stay. World of Hyatt will automatically track eligible stays when you provide your World of Hyatt membership number at check in.

Only base points on each stay are doubled, and all points awarded under this offer are bonus points. M life-eligible nights booked on Hyatt.com or the World of Hyatt app are eligible under this offer. Only the room occupied by the member will count toward this offer. You must choose points for each stay.

Please allow up to three weeks after your qualifying stay for Bonus Points to be posted to your World of Hyatt account.

To join World of Hyatt, visit worldofhyatt.com. You will receive double points for each whole United States dollar or equivalent spent on an eligible rate or eligible incidental charges beginning on your second eligible stay. All points awarded under this offer are bonus points.

Other terms and conditions — including those of the World of Hyatt frequent guest loyalty program — apply.

Summary

The bad news is that this promotion is only in effect for 46 days, which is hardly enough time to rake in the World of Hyatt points…

…but the good news is that you do not have to wait until your second eligible stay to reap the benefits of this promotion — which was a requirement of a similar promotion earlier this year.

Double points promotions have been rather popular in the lodging industry lately; but of all of the recent double points promotions — including that of World of Hyatt — I like the one from Hilton Honors because of its simplicity where you could receive double Hilton Honors frequent guest loyalty program points for all stays when you registered for the Unlimited Bonus promotion prior to your first stay. Due to its popularity, the Unlimited Bonus promotion from Hilton Honors was extended once; and then it was extended again  and yet again to its current promotion of double points. Earning double points for more than 46 days is not exactly a new or innovative concept.

As for this World of Hyatt promotion — well — it is better than a kick in the teeth, I suppose; and I intend to register for it…

…but primarily due to its smaller footprint of hotel and resort properties around the world when compared to other lodging companies — combined with few viable lower cost options for stays — I most likely will pass on participating in this promotion. Besides, it is not nearly as rewarding as past promotions when the program was known as Hyatt Gold Passport — may it rest in peace.

I hope that you benefit from this promotion, though…

    The key here is you have to pay the ELIGIBLE rate to qualify for the promo. The property I’m staying at costs an additional $34 for the DBL your points rate. Based on that, to get my extra points I’d be paying .03 per point. No thanks. I’m definitely going to pass.

      Wow — good catch, Patrick. I agree.

      What a shame at how far the loyalty program of Hyatt has fallen…

        The new Hyatt loyalty program is (almost) so bad that it makes me loyal…to Hilton!Is the Hyatt management getting any feedback on this from their customers?

          No – they (Hyatt mgmt) seems quite tone deaf on this one… They are smaller – they need a *better* award program. Instead, they watered down Gold Passport and attempted to make it millennial-friendly?! Unsuccessful on many fronts – but they show no signs of making course corrections.
