If you have a Hyatt Credit Card, you might be able to take part in a very cool promotion that will give you 20% of your redeemed points back for stays completed by July 31, 2015!

A couple of other credit cards such as some American Airlines cards and the IHG® Rewards Club Select Credit Card give 10% of redeemed miles/points back as a standard perk on the card, but I’m thrilled to see Hyatt doing this, even if it is a one-shot event for some cardholders.  If you want to get the Hyatt card, the best offer usually pops up with a statement credit while you are trying to make a reservation on the Hyatt website. 

The terms say that the promotion is valid only for Hyatt Credit cardmembers in good standing as of 1/31/2015 who receive this promotion from Hyatt and register for the promotion between 2/17/2015 and 3/31/2015.  I don’t currently have the Hyatt card so can’t try registering, but that reads to me that perhaps not every account is included in this offer.

How to Get 20% of Your Redeemed Hyatt Points Back:

  • To get 20% of your redeemed points back, you need to register for the promo before March 31, 2015.
  • Book a stay with Hyatt Gold Passport points and complete the stay by July 31, 2015.  If a portion of your stay occurs after July 31st, I would book that part separately.  Remember you can supplement your Hyatt account balance with transfers in from Chase Ultimate Rewards.
  • 20% of your points redeemed will be deposited back into your Hyatt Gold Passport account within 4-6 weeks of your stay.  Points redeemed for free nights, points + cash nights, room upgrades, and dining & spa awards all count.   Points redeemed for Avis car rentals or transferred to airline partners do not count.

If you redeemed 100,000 Hyatt Gold Passport points for four nights at the Grand Hyatt Kauai this summer, that means that you would get 20,000 of those points back if you qualify for this offer.  I value those 20,000 points at around $300, s0 this promotion has the potential to be extremely valuable for cardholders!

  1. Also — I have a reservation booked with points already (prior to registering for promo), I shouldn’t have to cancel/re-book that now, right? (It’s for a stay next week)

  2. Just registered. My wife and I are leaving tomorrow for Andaz Maui. Booked last may with 2 free award nights and remaining week points + cash, which I read does count. Talk about great timing!

  3. Called the Andaz phone number twice today. First time, 10-15 minute hold while the rep investigated the offer. I couldn’t wait and had to disconnect. Called back later, different rep, another 5-10 minute hold while she verified the details and took care of it. Neither rep was familiar with the program before I explained the basics.

    Rep applied the appropriate code to my upcoming April stay at Andaz Peninsula Papagayo and said I’m all set. I was concerned about the terms stating that the 20% points rebate was only for points redeemed between 2/17 and 7/31/2015. But the rep said there was no need to cancel and re-book my reservation, as she was able to apply the necessary code to my existing reservation (actually 2 rooms, so 2 reservations).

    So it took a bit longer on the phone than it should have, but sounds like Hyatt took care of it for me.

  4. I’m surprised you don’t have the Hyatt credit card, given your love for Hyatt hotels.

    I got the email. Right now, I don’t have any Hyatt points stays before 7/31, but nice to have that option if my plans change.

    • Stephen, I earn Hyatt points well from Ultimate Rewards cards. I do plan to get the card, just want to time it with when I can put the sign-up bonus to good use.

  5. I’m so excited about this! I got the email today and registered right away. I got the Hyatt card last year for the 2 free nights. I had planned to use them at the Huntington Beach Hyatt but couldn’t get the dates to work. On a whim I decided a trip back to Kauai for Spring Break was in order. We are staying 4 nights: 2 free on the card and 2 on points. Now my 50,000 point stay is only 40,000 points. Love this stuff! 🙂

  6. So glad so many of you guys get to benefit from this offer! Also glad Hyatt made it easy by allowing pre-exisisting reservations to count!

  7. FYI, MLife properties are also eligible for the 20% back. I tweeted Hyatt Concierge and they confirmed it. They aren’t the greatest use of Hyatt points, but MGM isn’t so bad now that it was lowered to 15K points (12K with this promo). Although, I’m tempted to go with Aria now that the 20% back is confirmed (20K after promo).
