Hyatt is my favorite hotel chain, and I was glad to see it’s offering a 10% rebate on redeemed points once again this summer. This seems to be a regular summer promotion for Hyatt at this point and a big plus for Hyatt credit card holders.
To be eligible for the 10% points rebate, you must be a current holder of one of the Hyatt credit cardswith an open World of Hyatt account, and register for the promotion (you should have received, or will be receiving a registration email) by August 31, 2018.
All award stays – stays using points, points + cash or for room upgrades – completed between 8/1/18 and 9/30/18 will receive 10% of the points used re-deposited to your World of Hyatt account.
Hyatt is stating the 10% bonus points will be loaded to your account 6-8 weeks after the points are redeemed.
A few years ago, Hyatt offered a 20% rebate promotion that my wife and I took advantage of to the tune of 21,000 Gold Passport points (old name) back after a week stay at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort and Spa and a miscellaneous Hyatt Place stay during the promotion period.
Rebated points – for us – were in our account within a week or two of the award stays, much sooner than the 6-8 weeks that Hyatt was/is stating.
That said, I would be wary about making any definitive plans for those 10% points any earlier than the 6-8 weeks that are part of the terms and conditions.
While not as good as the 20% back offer of a few years ago, 10% is better than nothing. Especially when talking about Hyatt points.
If Hyatt award stays are part of your travel plans in the next few months, definitely take a few minutes to register for this promotion.
