Earn double Hyatt points and 1,500 bonus points per weekend stay (starting with your second stay)
The most valuable hotel points you can earn are Hyatt points, especially if you’re into luxury stays. So I always jump on any opportunity to pad my Hyatt account balance. With the newest Hyatt promotion all members can earn double base points on eligible spending. And if you have the The World Of Hyatt Credit Card or the old Hyatt credit card (no longer available to new applicants) you’ll earn an additional 1,500 bonus points per eligible weekend stay. You’ll earn the double points and 1,500 bonus points beginning with your second stay.
The promotion runs from Feb. 15 to May 15, 2020, but you’ll need to register no later than March 31 to qualify.

Good deal or not?
You earn five Hyatt base points on eligible spending, so this promotion gets you an extra five points per dollar. That’s a solid return and is in addition to the up to 30% bonus you can earn as a top-tier Hyatt Globalist.
But this promotion can really get good if you have The World Of Hyatt Credit Card or the old Hyatt credit card (no longer available to new applicants). First off, with the World of Hyatt card you’ll earn an extra four points per dollar and it comes with Discoverist Hyatt status (10% bonus on base points). But you’ll also be able to earn an extra 1,500 bonus points per eligible stay during the promotion (starting with your second stay when you pay with your card). On shorter stays those 1,500 bonus points could easily be an extra 5-10x points on your spending. Also, you’ll earn the 1,500 bonus points on awards stays. That means that once Hyatt’s off-peak pricing goes live in March you could book 1-night off-peak stays at Category 1 hotels for only 2,000 points out of pocket!
If you don’t have a World of Hyatt Credit Card (or the old version), you can earn a welcome bonus of up to 50,000 Hyatt points after meeting tiered minimum spending requirements. You’ll earn 25,000 bonus Hyatt points after you spend $3,000 on purchases in the first three months of opening your account and another 25,000 bonus Hyatt points after you spend an additional $3,000 ($6,000 total) on purchases within the first six months of opening your account. This is one of the best hotel credit cards when you consider how easy it is to use Hyatt points to get exceptional value.
