Deal alert: Easy way to save 10% at many Hyatt hotels

Hyatt is one of our favorite hotel brands due its incredible award program that allows for amazing redemptions at properties around the world. While we write often about the deals you can get at Hyatt with points, it’s less frequent that we see deals to save when using cash to stay at Hyatt hotels.
Starting on November 29 and lasting through December 2, you can save 10% when purchasing Hyatt gift cards here and using the code WINTER19 during checkout, as reported by Frequent Miler. The discount will also be available from December 20-23.
The best part about this is that when using gift cards to cover the cost of the stay, it’ll be like you’re booking directly with the hotel, so you should still earn points and elite credits, as well as be able to enjoy perks you have from your Hyatt elite status.
Likely the most important thing to note about this deal is that you can’t redeem Hyatt gift cards at every Hyatt property. You’ll have to check here for the full list of properties that accept gift cards. It appears that it’s mostly hotels in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Caribbean, Central America, and South America. You’ll also have to use the gift card when checking out, as you can’t apply it to prepay a stay.
Unfortunately the purchases are not processed by Hyatt, so you won’t earn bonus points when using a travel credit card like Chase Sapphire Preferred Card or World of Hyatt Credit Card. You’re best off using a card that earns points on non-bonused spend, like the Chase Freedom Unlimited® or The Blue Business® Plus Credit Card from American Express.
