Did you know you can earn airline miles for staying at Hyatt hotels?
You can get double hotel points at Hilton and Starwood hotels this summer and now you can earn triple airline miles at Hyatt.
Hyatt members earn triple airline miles with certain airlines for stays completed at Hyatt hotels from May 1, 2014, to August 31, 2014.
How Many Miles Can You Earn?
With this deal can earn up to 7,500 base miles and up to 14,000 bonus miles, for a total of 21,500 airline miles.
For example, on your 2nd stay you get 1,500 airline miles (500 base miles + 1,000 bonus miles) instead of the usual 500 airline miles. This is a nice bonus if you find a good deal on a Hyatt hotel.
Note: The points you earn are per stay. So short stays make this deal a better value.
Is It Better to Earn Miles or Points?
If you stay at a Hyatt hotel and choose to earn Hyatt points, you will earn 5 points per dollar spent. So if you complete 5 one night stays that cost $150 per night, you will earn 3,750 Hyatt points ($150 x 5 points per dollar x 5 one night stays).
But if you choose to earn airline miles, you will get 6,500 airline miles. I would rather have 6,500 airline miles than 3,750 Hyatt points. However, as always, it depends upon your personal goals.
How to Earn Triple Airline Miles From Hyatt
Step 1 – Select an Airline & Register
You can only register to earn miles with 1 airline, so choose wisely. Each airline has a separate registration page:
- Air France (KLM)
- Al Nippon Airways (ANA)
- American Airlines
- British Airways
- Japan Airlines (JAL)
- Jet Airways
- United Airlines
Step 2 – Give Your Frequent Flyer Number at Check-In
To earn miles for your stay, give your frequent flyer number at check-in.
Step 3 – Complete Your Stay By August 31, 2014
You must check-out by August 31, 2014, to earn the miles with this promotion.
How Long Will It Take for the Miles to Show Up in Your Account?
The airline miles should credit to your account within 4 to 6 weeks after you complete your stay.
Hyatt Gold members can earn 3X airline miles when they complete at least 2 stays at certain Hyatt hotels. You must check-out by August 31, 2014, for your stay to count towards this
If you already have plans to stay at a Hyatt hotel this could be a good way to earn the extra miles you need for your next award ticket. This could also be useful for folks who can complete short stays at can Hyatt hotels with cheap rates.
