Elite Status Hotels Travel Deals

Hit Hyatt Elite Status Quicker with Double Elite Credits at These 20 Hyatt Properties [Targeted]

Written by Charlie

Thanks to this new promo, you can get to Hyatt elite status even quicker when you stay at any of these 20 hotels! Each night counts for 2 elite nights!

It is November and that means that any hotel loyalists that are still short of their elite goals are trying to see where they can make them up before the calendar rolls over to 2020! Fortunately, if you are chasing Hyatt elite status, there is a new Hyatt promo out that will let you earn double elite credits when you stay at any of the 20 Hyatt properties in their Unbound Collection.

Update: It is a targeted offer so if you try to sign up and receive a notice that you are not eligible, that is why. Sorry for any initial confusion.

Hyatt Elite Status Promo: Earn Double Credits with the Unbound Collection

What is the “Unbound Collection?”

Hyatt has a variety of brands that seek to meet the needs and desires of a variety of travelers. The Unbound Collection is filled with 20 hotels that are definitely not your cookie cutter hotel but are unique properties in some fun locations around the world. Here is where these hotels are located:

On the award scale, they range from a Category 2 at 8,000 points per night up to a Category 7 at 30,000 points per night.

Details of the Hyatt Double Elite Credit Promo

Here are the details for this promo and remember that you must register to earn the double credits!

  • Link to Register
  • All eligible nights under this promotion must have a checkout date from October 22, 2019 through December 31, 2019 (“Promotion Period”).
  • Each eligible night completed at Unbound properties during the Promotion Period will count as two (2) nights, instead of one (1), for the purpose of tier qualification for Discoverist, Explorist and Globalist status.
  • The extra night credit will also count towards benefits and awards that explicitly require a certain number of qualifying nights.
  • For the purpose of this promotion, an “Eligible Night” is defined as any night where a member is paying an Eligible Rate or redeems a free night award for at least one night of their 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 check-in for each stay.
  • Please allow two to three weeks after your qualifying stay for Bonus Points to be posted to your World of Hyatt account.
  •  All nights associated with this promotion will be posted to your World of Hyatt account (My Past Activity section).

As you can see, award nights count as well so this would be a great time to hit any of the Category 2 properties at 8,000 points per night since that will be the best bang for your Hyatt point. Of course, that only includes the Nish Palas in Turkey or the Jinmao Hotel Lijiang in China so that probably won’t work for everyone! 🙂

For US customers, though, there is still the Ocean Resort Casino in Jersey at 12,000 points or the Spirit Ridge in British Columbia for the same amount to check out.

  • “We’re Sorry

    You are either ineligible for or have already registered for this offer.”

    I certainly haven’t registered prior. Any ideas why one would be deemed, ‘ineligible’ ?

  • Hey Charlie, this is a targeted promotion. I would mention that in your article. Targeted Hyatt members were auto registered per a phone conversation with Hyatt customer service and confirmed again through twitter.

    • Thanks, Derrick. I had checked the page itself for targeted language and obviously must have missed it (reviewing the e-mail now, I see it says “exclusive”) so thanks for catching it for me.
      I did have to register for it myself, though.
