One of the stranger habits of the successful ‘travel hacker’ is registering for promotions, even when you have no plans to travel with that particular airline or hotel company. Plans change, and many loyalty programme promotions have surprisingly restrictive registration dates. For example, let’s take a look at Hyatt’s current promotion…
Registration ends on 15th May (register here), despite the fact that the actual promotion applies to stays all the way through to 15th June.
Members will earn:
- 2,000 bonus points every second night
- After ten nights, a free night certificate valid for 180 days at any Category 1-4 hotel (Cat. 4 = 15,000 points)
One of the great benefits of World of Hyatt is that these “earn X points per night” promotions work with award stays. So, if you happen to have an award Category 1 hotel in your travel plans, an award stay costing 5,000 points per night would become an effective 4,000 points per night once your bonus points credit back into your account.
With hotels here in the UK scheduled to open up to leisure travellers in a couple of weeks, you might be starting to think about booking something. Missing out on bonus points on those stays, just because you didn’t register in time, would be very irritating!
