Hyatt sent out some e-mails the other day for a new promo encouraging customers to make their next Hyatt booking online through their mobile website or their smartphone app. In exchange for doing so, they will deposit 500 Hyatt points into your account.
Pick Up An Easy 500 Hyatt Points On Your Next Booking
Now, unfortunately, it is not possible to book my favorite rate – Points+Cash – through either the app or the mobile site. You can make a points reservation but that does not count as an “Eligible Rate” for the promotion.
The details are:
- Must book and stay between August 1 – September 30
- The booking must be paid with any eligible rate through either the mobile site or the Hyatt app
- Any Hyatt is eligible (but it excludes M Life resorts)
- You must be a Hyatt member to be eligible (free to join)
- Must be a registered guest of the room
- Only one 500 point bonus can be earned
This is a nice way to be able to top up your Hyatt account by a bit without really doing anything different than you may already do for such a reservation. This came via e-mail to one of my accounts and did not include a promo code. While it may be targeted, I highly doubt that since it did not say in the e-mail that it is only valid for the recipient or any other targeted type language.
This type of promo is not enough to encourage a booking that you would not already do, but it should be enough to get you to make it through the app or the mobile website. While they have made some nice improvements to the app, there are still some glitchy parts so be on the lookout for that.
One of the worst is that it does not do currency conversions the right way. While looking at the Park Hyatt Sydney, it kicked out a rate of 0 and nn. To see what happened, I booked one of the suites which said that and it never gave me a price. Until I received the confirmation e-mail and it told me a price of $1,500 for a single night. 🙂 So, just be aware of that!
