Have you ever been frustrated trying to find an available hotel where you can use your free Hyatt award nights earned in a promotion or through the Hyatt credit card? Well we have a trvlvip insider Tip for you!
A few years ago I was lucky enough to realize that Hyatt was having a promotion with the reward of free nights. Those were the days of much more lucrative promotions than we see today.
This particular promotion required registration (most of these types of promotions do). Had I not registered I would have received nothing even if I stayed at Hyatt hotels many times during the promotional period. And while we haven’t seen a promotion this rich from Hyatt in a while, trvlvip will be sure to let you know when free-night and other bonus points promotions are introduced.
This particular free-night promotion allowed me to earn one free night for redemption at ANY LEVEL Hyatt property for two stays at ANY LEVEL Hyatt property. In essence, you could stay at a Hyatt Place two times (most are a level 2) and earn a free night at a level 7 hotel like the Park Hyatt Paris-Vendome! I registered immediately and booked my upcoming work travel at level 2 through 4 Hyatt properties that were within my travel budget at work. I stayed eight times during the promotional period.
But that isn’t the end of the story. While I earned four free nights during the promotion, when I attempted to book the Park Hyatt in Paris none of the four-day periods I tried worked for a stretch of months. I was distressed as I loved the location and luxury of that property. So I got creative. I discovered that I could redeem each of the four earned nights at the Park Hyatt if I did them in separate reservations one day at a time, for consecutive nights. I made each free-night redemption reservation one by one and then called Hyatt and combined all four reservations into a single stay.Voila! I had no issues with my reservation upon arriving at the property! Four free nights at the lovely Park Hyatt Paris-Vendome!
We just did the same thing in New York City at the incredibly luxurious Park Hyatt (also a level 7 property) with 2 FREE nights I earned from World of Hyatt for being Globalist. And we used the same trick for the two received two promotional nights when we signed up for the Hyatt Chase Visa credit card a few years ago. When trying to book two nights together a few days after Thanksgiving didn’t work, we were again able to secure the nights by booking them one by one!
The cash price for the room during our stay was $1,200 a night and it was entirely FREE for us! Another BIG win! And because I hold Globalist status with Hyatt, we enjoyed a FREE luxurious breakfast each day of our stay including one through room service while in bed!
And now with the many FREE night opportunities with the new World of Hyatt program, now you will have an insider Tip to stay at the hotels of your choice!
So give it a try the next time you have multiple free night promotional awards from Hyatt. Try the one-day-at-a-time strategy and if this trick works for you, leave a nice note for us on Facebook and Twitter and share it with your friends!
And with more ways to achieve free-night awards, everyone wins!
