Is Hyatt Gambling with Canadians?
Part of The Big Welcome – New Gold Passport Enhancements promotion by Hyatt Corporation, which is currently active, is a contest where one can win 365 free nights and 1,000,000 airline miles. However, FlyerTalk member jumpdogjump laments for the Poor, poor Canadians… who participate in this promotion, because “If a potential daily prize winner is from Canada, he/she will be required to successfully complete and submit an electronic, mathematical skills test within three (3) business days from the time the e-mail notification was sent by Sponsor before the prize will be awarded. Failure to successfully answer and submit the skill-testing question in the time specified by the Sponsor will result in the prize being forfeited and an alternate winner selected.”
Can you guess the reason why Hyatt Corporation would take what seems to be such a calculated risk in openly practicing what appears on the surface to be obvious discrimination against Canadians?
