Via One Mile at a Time, on April 1, 2016, Hyatt will open registration for their new “Stay More Play More” promotion.  You can earn up to 75,000 bonus Hyatt points.

But, to earn that many bonus points, you’d have to stay 25 paid nights between April 1, 2016, and June 30, 2016!

You can also earn 5,000 bonus Hyatt points when you have 5 paid nights within the same timeframe, which is more realistic for lots of folks.  That’s enough points for a free award night at a Hyatt Category 1 hotel.

5,000 Hyatt Points Gets You a Free Night at the Hyatt Regency Albuquerque! I’ll Share the Details of Hyatt’s New “Stay More Play More” Promotion

I’ll explain!

What’s the Deal?

Link:   Register for Hyatt’s “Stay More Play More” Promotion (Link NOT Active Until April 1, 2016)

Starting April 1, 2016, folks can register at this link for Hyatt’s new “Stay More Play More” promotion.

Hyatt hotels include:

New Hyatt 75,000 Points Promo Or Go For 1 Free Night After 5 Paid Nights

75,000 Hyatt Points Is More Than Enough for 2 Award Nights at the Fanciest Hyatt Hotels in the World, Like the Park Hyatt Milan. But You’ll Need 25 Paid Nights During the Promotion!

When you register, you’ll earn bonus Hyatt points on paid stays from April 1, 2016, through June 30, 2016.  You’ll get:

  • 5,000 Hyatt points when you stay 5 nights
  • 15,000 Hyatt points when you stay 10 nights
  • 30,000 Hyatt points when you stay 15 nights
  • 50,000 Hyatt points when you stay 20 nights
  • 75,000 Hyatt points when you stay 25 nights

Only paid stays and Points + Cash stays are eligible for this promotion.  Award stays will NOT earn bonus points.

And, the points you’ll earn are on top of normal points-earning, and any bonuses for elite status with Hyatt.

We don’t have the full terms and conditions of the offer yet, but stays at M Life hotels through Hyatt’s partnership with M Life generally do NOT count.

Update:  According to One Mile at a Time, M Life stays will count toward this promotion.

And, like previous Hyatt promotions, stays booked through online travel agencies like Expedia will most likely NOT be eligible for the promotion.  You must book directly with Hyatt.

Is This a Good Deal?

To earn the full 75,000 bonus Hyatt points, you’d have to stay 25 nights at Hyatt hotels between April and June 2016.  That’s nearly 1 month in Hyatt hotels out of three!  For most folks, that’s not feasible.

Stay 5 Nights and Earn 5,000 Extra Hyatt Points! That’s Enough for a Free Night at the Hyatt Place Managua

However, if you have travel coming up soon, it’s worth signing-up and shooting for 5 nights.  Or 10 if you have a few trips booked.

Taste the Low-Hanging Fruit of a Free Award Night at Category 1 Hotels

When you stay 5 paid nights during the promotion period, you’ll earn 5,000 bonus Hyatt points.  That’s enough for a free award night at a Hyatt Category 1 hotel, like the Hyatt Regency Albuquerque or Hyatt Place Managua in Nicaragua – a nice bonus if you have paid stays anyway!

You’ll Need 25,000 Hyatt Points for an Award Night at the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa. 5,000 Extra Hyatt Points Is a Nice Boost Toward a Free Night at Luxury Hyatt Hotels!

Or Reach Higher & Use the Points Towards a Memorable Stay in a Luxury Hotel

5,000 Hyatt points is also a good start toward an award stay at a higher-category hotel, like the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spawhere Emily and I stayed.  An award night there, and other Hyatt Category 6 hotels, costs 25,000 Hyatt points per night.

Pad Your Hyatt Points With Transfers From Chase Ultimate Rewards

Remember, you can always transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards points to Hyatt to top-up your account for an award stay if you have the Chase Sapphire Preferred, Chase Ink Plus, or (no longer offered) Chase Ink Bold card.

This is 1 reason I love my Freedom card.  Because each quarter there are 5X points categories when you click to register.  Then because I have the Chase Sapphire Preferred, I can transfer my points to Chase’s great partners…like Hyatt!

Sign-Up for This (and Most Every) Free Promotion

I recommend signing-up for this promotion, and every promotion you find, just in case!  Because you never know when a travel opportunity will pop up.  You’ll earn bonus points – and it only takes a few seconds to register!

Pay With the Right Card

Remember to pay with a card that will earn you bonus points for your hotel stays:

Bottom Line

Starting April 1, 2016, you can register for Hyatt’s “Stay More Play More” promotion.  You can earn up to 75,000 bonus Hyatt points.

But to get that many, you’d need to stay 25 nights at Hyatt hotels during the promotion period of April 1, 2016, through June 30, 2016.  That’s a lot of nights!

For most of y’all, it might be easier to aim for the 5,000 bonus Hyatt points you get after 5 paid nights.   You’ll earn enough points for a free night at a Hyatt Category 1 hotel.  Or save the points for an award night at a higher-category Hyatt hotel.

If you have trips coming up in the next few months, I recommend signing-up just in case.  It’s quick to register, and always good to earn extra points for your stays!

  1. Informative post – thanks! Do you guys have any advice specifically for UK travellers regarding making the most of air miles?

    Thanks again,

    Kyle / http://www.backpackingbuds.com

  2. I have two nights booked with points/cash right now for beginning of June- do you know if current reservations will count toward it if I register for the promo? Or will I need to cancel this reservation and make a new one after I register?

  3. Well now, this is the first Hyatt promo in over a year, since the very nice 20% rebate on points used per stay. (now THAT was a great promo — and Hyatt has been awol ever since, and they still are.)

    Frankly, as you almost suggest, this promo is just … dead on arrival. Is business that good? And yet Hyatt keeps sending us these absurd reminders to vote a Freddie for them!!! (I did last year, but no way, now how this year)

    Even that “easy” route of five stays to get 5,000 points is less than compelling. Far easier to buy 1k via Freedom categories or Ink business and get the 5k reward that way.

  4. Tim Davidson

    I travel for work and book my hotels using our corporate travel website. Do you know if these type of stays will count for the bonus? Should I sign up and use the Hyatt CC or use my Citi Prestige CC to pay for the stays? Thank you.

  5. @Tim Davidson yes they do count. You just need to add your Hyatt GP account to your corporate travel website profile or make sure that it is added when checking in. With the Hyatt CC, you’ll get points for stay plus bonus points for using CC. Nice way to boost your Hyatt points bank. Kind regards.

  6. @Kyle – Not specifically. But you can use any tips you find about getting TO Europe, and use them to fly FROM Europe. And of course, convert dollars to pounds. Other than that, the number of miles you’ll need should remain the same!

    @amanda – Current reservations will count.

    @Will – I’d have to agree with you. Hopefully this is helpful to some who have paid stays coming up anyway. Thank you for adding!

    @Tim Davidson – I’m not sure. It would depend on which website you use. I’d recommend calling Hyatt and seeing if they can give you some guidance before you decide which card to use to be on the safe side.

    Stays booked with Citi Prestige DO earn bonus points and elite stay credit at Hyatt.

    @BAT – Thank you for adding!
