What are you Choosing: 50,000 Points or 4 Free Nights?
Signing up for credit cards through partner links earns us a commission. Terms apply to the offers listed on this page. Here’s our full Advertising Policy.
You can now register for the Hyatt Endless Possibilities promotion which is running up to April 30, 2014.Hyatt hotels include Andaz, Grand Hyatt, Hyatt, Hyatt Place, Hyatt Regency, Hyatt Resorts, Hyatt Summerfield Suites, and Park Hyatt brand hotels.
You can choose to earn points OR free nights, but can’t combine the two. The free nights are valid only until July 31, 2014 and only in category 1 to 4 Hyatt hotels, so you can’t use them at all Hyatt hotels.
This means that you can’t earn 2 free nights and 15,000 points or 30,000 points and 1 free night. You have to decide if you want to earn points OR free nights, when you register.
Note that you can register up to March 31, 2014, even though the promotion ends on April 30, 2014. So you could wait to register and decide whether to earn points or free nights.
Hyatt Endless Possibilities
You can earn up to 50,000 Hyatt points or 4 free nights with the Hyatt Endless Possibilities promotion between January 15, 2014 through April 30, 2014.
When you register you have to choose between earning points or free nights.
Up To 50,000 Points
You can earn up to 50,000 bonus points if you stay for 20 nights in total up to April 30, 2014.
I registered for points because I won’t be able to use the free nights by July 31, 2014. But I can use the points at any time!
- You get 5,000 points after you stay 5 nights.
- After 10 nights, you’ll get an additional 10,000 points. This means that you’ll have earned 15,000 points.
- You’ll get 15,000 more points after you stay 15 nights. So you’ll have 30,000 points after staying 15 nights.
- When you stay 20 nights, you’ll get an additional 20,000 points. So you get 50,000 points after you stay 20 nights!
If You Choose Points
Hyatt has a new award chart,, but the changes were moderate and I still like to collect Hyatt points. Hyatt has some of my favorite hotels!
Staying at a Hyatt for 15 nights during the promotion will get you 30,000 Hyatt points. 30,000 Hyatt points is enough for a Category 7 hotel like the Park Hyatt Milan.
Up To 4 Free Nights
You can earn up to 4 free nights in a Category 1 to 4 Hyatt hotel. But you have to use your free nights by July 31, 2014.
It costs 5,000 Hyatt points for a Category 1 Hyatt and 15,000 Hyatt points for a category 4 Hyatt hotel.
If you know that you can use the free nights at a category 1 to 4 Hyatt hotel, you could be better off signing-up for free nights. That’s because 5 nights will earn you only 5,000 points (if you choose to earn points) out of the 15,000 points needed for 1 night in a category 4 Hyatt.
But you earn 1 night at a category 4 Hyatt hotel if you choose to earn the free nights!
- You can earn 1 free night after staying 5 nights.
- You earn a 2nd free night after staying 10 nights.
- After staying 15 nights, you’ll have earned 3 free nights.
- You earn 4 free nights after staying 20 nights.
Emily & I had a great time at the Park Hyatt Goa, a Category 4 Hyatt hotel.
Should You Choose Points or Nights?
If you’re going to stay lots of nights at Hyatt during the promotion and can’t use the free nights by July 31, 2014, you’re better off choosing to earn points.
Hyatt points expire in 2 years, but there are lots of ways to keep your Hyatt points from expiring.
But if you will only have 5 nights at Hyatt, then it might make sense for you to choose the free night if you know you can use it by July 31, 204. That’s because you can use it at any Category 1 to 4 hotel, which would cost up to 15,000 points for 1 night.
However, I wouldn’t do a mattress run (where you check into a hotel just for the points), unless you were just 1 night away from a big bonus.
But do what makes sense for you!
Viva Las Vegas
Stays at MGM hotels in Las Vegas count towards the Endless Possibilities promotion. So you can book a cheap stay in Las Vegas and you’ll earn elite stay credit, Hyatt points, and your stay counts towards earning points or free nights.
Points & Cash
And Hyatt’s new Points & Cash rate also counts towards the Endless Possibilities promotion. I had a few stays booked entirely on points, but I’m switching them to Points & Cash bookings so that I can get credit towards Hyatt elite status and this promotion!
You can earn up to 50,000 points or 4 free nights in the Hyatt Endless Possibilities promotion when you stay 20 nights between January 15, 2014 to April 30, 2014.
You have to choose points or free nights so you can’t mix and match points and nights.
