Hyatt’s new fall promotion

Gary reports about Hyatt's new fall promotion.

Business trips are hard. That's why we're making it easier than ever to turn them into free nights, room upgrades and dining and spa services. Beginning September 9, you can earn 5,000 Hyatt Gold Passport® bonus points after your first five nights, and thousands more for every additional five nights. After 20 nights, that's 50,000 bonus points.

I took advantage of a similar promotion last year while being a Hyatt Diamond. I also was targeted for a summer promotion giving me 3,000 extra points per check-in.

If you are Diamond and select the points amenity this promotion will give you 3,500 Gold Passport points for each (one-night) stay. That's worth about $70. If you then happen to stay in the Dallas area a lot (with low Hyatt room rates) your stays are basically free.

You can register here from on Sepetember 9th.
