T hrough Thursday, June 30, 2016, you can earn up to 75,000 bonus Gold Passport points during the Stay More Play More promotion from Hyatt; and you can earn as few as 5,000 bonus Gold Passport points after staying only five eligible nights at participating hotel and resort properties which are part of the portfolio of brands of Hyatt Hotels Corporation.

Registration is currently open, as it is required to participate; and you must be a member of the Hyatt Gold Passport frequent guest loyalty program to participate in this promotion.

Earn Up to 75,000 Bonus Gold Passport Points

The following chart shows the thresholds at which you can earn tiers of bonus Hyatt Gold Passport frequent guest loyalty program points:

Stay and Complete Bonus Points Earned Total Points Earned
5 Eligible Nights + 5,000 = 5,000
10 Eligible Nights + 10,000 = 15,000
15 Eligible Nights + 15,000 = 30,000
20 Eligible Nights + 20,000 = 50,000
25 Eligible Nights + 25,000 = 75,000

All eligible nights under this offer must occur from Friday, April 1, 2016 through Thursday, June 30, 2016.

Terms and Conditions

For the purpose of this offer, an eligible night is defined as any night where you are paying an eligible rate, as defined in the terms and conditions of the Hyatt Gold Passport frequent guest loyalty program. You will only receive eligible night credit for your room — regardless of the number of rooms for which you paid. You must provide your Hyatt Gold Passport membership number at the time of checking in to the hotel or resort property; and choose points or miles for your stay. Please allow two to three weeks after your qualifying stay for bonus points to be posted to your Hyatt Gold Passport account.

Other terms and conditions may apply.


With few exceptions, 75,000 Gold Passport points can be redeemed for two or more nights anywhere in the world, with as many as 15 nights at a Category 1 hotel property. This is one of the better promotions by a lodging company in recent years in terms of earning frequent guest loyalty program points, in my opinion; and I intend to register for it.

Registration is simple, quick and free of charge; and the reasons for not registering for this promotion are few and far between. I would recommend doing so — even you do not have immediate plans to stay at a hotel or resort property within the Hyatt portfolio of brands.

  1. I’ve registered. I have no immediate plans to stay at any hotel in this tune frame, but I’ve got a 3 night trip to the Patk Hyatt in Sydney in September, so I’m debating making my first mattress run to get enough points for my stay there and to make diamond status in the meantime. It just depends how cheaply I can find rooms.

    luckily I live in the DFW area so lots of options for properties.

    1. I am not a believer in pure mileage runs or pure mattress runs, Susan; but if I was going to do what you are contemplating, I would try to tie in some value to my stay.

      For example, will staying at an inexpensive Hyatt hotel property where you are based grant you an opportunity to experience the Dallas-Fort Worth area in a way where you are otherwise too busy?

      I would personally consider a day trip or two to a Hyatt hotel property where the room rates are reasonable and yet I get to enjoy an experience for which I would otherwise not have time — even if it means paying a little more than for a room solely for a pure mattress run. I feel like I get more out of my miles and points that way because to me, the whole purpose of miles and points is to enjoy the experiences which travel has to offer; and I believe that many of the so-called “travel hackers” lose sight of that…

  2. Actually have four nights planned. Do you think a fifth night is worth the mattress run for the 5,000 points? Also was debating doing the cash and points rate to hit diamond with the promo, but not sure. Does Hyatt still do Diamond challenges? That would make it a no-brainer.

    1. I cannot answer the question definitively about whether or not that fifth night is worth it, Marlene, as it really depends on what are your ultimate goals. For example, what are you going to pay for that fifth night; and will staying a fifth night — regardless of the promotion — benefit you?

      If you were staying in a place like New York — which has so much to see and do — and there are things you would like to do on that fifth night that you would have otherwise missed, then absolutely. If an extra night on that beach on a tropical island is just what you needed for relaxation, then definitely…

      …but if you are at an airport location of a place which is not all that interesting — or if the room rate will cost you an extra $500.00 for that fifth night — then most likely the 5,000 bonus Gold Passport points may not be worth it to you…

      …but again, for what will that 5,000 bonus points be used? Do you need them to top off your account? Is it for a stay at a desired location in the near future? Could it be used towards a redemption for an award that will actually save you money?

      There are too many questions for me to give you a definitive answer; but despite not knowing all of your circumstances and thought processes, I would consider going for it.

      The last time I attempted a Diamond challenge with Hyatt, which was several months ago…

      …I was given Platinum elite level status; so even if there is a Diamond challenge — I do not believe one is currently available — that is no guarantee that you will be granted Diamond elite level status with Hyatt Gold Passport.

      As far as cash and points, that is also difficult for me to answer definitively, as it is again based on your specific circumstances, criteria and preferences.

      I hope that answers all of your questions, Marlene; but if not, please feel free to ask me more, as I enjoy trying to help people…
