Can a Hyatt corporate code always save you money?

What’s the deal with the Hyatt corporate code?

The reduced price of a corporate rate is usually one that the hotel negotiates directly with a large company. If you work for a large company, it’s always worth checking directly if there’s already a discount in place for stays with Hyatt before you book, as you can save dollars for little effort.

Although this post shows various codes, we’re not suggesting that you use a corporate code that you’re not entitled to, although many do, and many get away with it. If you book a corporate rate with Hyatt, you may well have to show your employee ID or business card at check-in or instead have to pay the rack rate.

Read on to see how you can use one corporate code in particular, simply by joining a free union…

What discount can I get by using a Hyatt corporate code?

The discount is often 10% off the regular rate, but is sometimes more, and depends on the company. The highest discount we found was 20% off the Best Available Rate, given to UCSF School of Medicine staff to use at most Hyatt hotels in the US.

How do I get a Hyatt corporate code?

The first step is to check directly with the business you work for or call the Hyatt hotel to ask if there’s a corporate rate for your company.

This FlyerTalk thread includes an extensive list of Hyatt discount codes, but in case you don’t want to wade through 60+ pages to find them, here’s the main corporate codes, thanks to struggling1k:

  • 12114 – Duty Free Shoppers
  • 13717 – IBM
  • 90010 – Li & Fung
  • 12624 – Credit Suisse
  • 99800 – Daimler Benz
  • 68083 – TVL
  • 23079 – TVL
  • 57039 – Samsung
  • NC16700 – GE
  • 13307 – GE International
  • 13516 – Crédit Lyonnais
  • 79103 – BankAtlantic

More corporate codes can be found with a simple Google search. We found the code 13147 for Travelzoo employees and B200936 for members of the Freelancer Union. Anyone can join this union for free!

To book a corporate rate on Hyatt, simply enter the code in the ‘Corporate or Group Code’ box:

Occasionally, a company doesn’t advertise the corporate code, but instead tells employees to call the hotel directly. An example of this is that FedEx employees are entitled to 10% off the Best Available Rate, as Hyatt is one of their preferred hotel programs, but there’s no actual code and it can’t be booked online.

What else do I need to know about the Hyatt corporate code?

Using a corporate code with Hyatt doesn’t always save you money. Occasionally, a code can actually increase the Best Available Rate and corporate codes can sometimes be more expensive than using a promotional offer. It’s always best to compare prices before booking. Plus if you have a Costco or AAA membership, these rates can often be cheaper than using a corporate code.
