I received an e-mail message from the Hyatt Gold Passport frequent guest loyalty program earlier this morning advising me of this promotion; and it does not appear to be targeted.
No registration seems to be required on your part to participate in this promotion — but all hotel reservations are subject to availability and must be booked in advance; and you must ensure that you choose points for your stay and pay an eligible rate.
Terms and Conditions
An eligible rate is any hotel published room rate, including, but not limited to rates found on hyatt.com or any Hyatt Gold Passport Hotel Partner website, the Hyatt Daily Rate, volume, AAA and senior citizen rates, etc.
Ineligible rates are discounted rates, including, but not limited to, any free night stays, Internet wholesale rates (such as priceline.com, hotels.com, etc.), traditional wholesale rates (such as GOGO Worldwide Vacations, Pleasant Holidays, etc.), airline crew rates, airline employee rates, travel agency employee rates, Club at the Hyatt discount certificate stays, Hyatt Vacation Club stays, Hyatt employee or employee family discount rates, airline interrupted-trip vouchers or contracted rooms (a contract room is a room that has been reserved pursuant to a written and executed agreement between a hotel and a corporation, government agency or individual for a negotiated room rate in exchange for an agreed upon number of rooms to be rented for an extended period of time).
This offer is not valid with groups/conventions and may not be combined with other promotional offers. Guest must request offer code <GP155> at time of reservation and check-in to receive bonus points. Only one bonus may be redeemed per member, per stay.
Promotional blackout periods may apply due to seasonal periods or special events, and normal arrival/departure restrictions apply.
Having been to Africa three times this year already — yes, I have plenty of trip reports still lined up to be written, along with plenty of photographs — I would have considered taking advantage of this promotion if it were in effect while I was there.
