Summer is here and it’s time to start planning those summer trips. You’ll save more this year because you’ll get a 25% rebate on Hyatt points.
When you use your Hyatt points for stays, room upgrades, dining and spa services at any of Hyatt’s independent collection brands worldwide from June 15, 2021 through September 15, 2021, you’ll get 25% of your points back!
World of Hyatt’s independent collections participating in this offer are:
- Destination by Hyatt
- JdV by Hyatt
- The Unbound Collection by Hyatt
You will get a 25% rebate when you redeem points at these brands. Other Hyatt brands do not qualify for the offer. Nor will Exhale classes, spa therapies, FIND experiences, Lindblad Expeditions, or points transferred to airline partners.
Get a Free Night
For those of you looking to get your brand explorer free night, this is a great opportunity to get it checked off and earn a free night.
Pro-tip: Something I noticed is that JdV by Hyatt rebranded. It was called joie de vivre. Those of us who earned a brand stay when it was joie de vivre will notice we no longer have it checked off in our account.
I’ve already earned all three free nights under the Brand Explorer program but for those of you who haven’t, this could be a good opportunity to earn another free night.
Current reservations booked prior to registration that are within the redemption period will earn the rebate.
To get your 25% rebate on Hyatt points your stay has to be within the redemption period: June 15, 2021 to September 15, 2021.
For hotel stays and upgrades, the latest day you can book and get your rebate is for a stay on the night of September 14, 2021. You need to check out on the morning of September 15, 2021.
Because the first day of the promo overlaps with the current Bonus Journeys offer of 2,000 points you can double dip. Check in on June 13 and check out on June 15, 2021.
How to Maximize This Offer
Under this promotion, you can earn a maximum rebate of 30,000 points per transaction. But there is no limit on the total number of points you can earn under this promo. Here’s how you can maximize this offer.
This means you can get 30,000 points back on each stay or redemption. But it also means you need to be strategic and do the math to make sure you don’t lose any points.
For example, let’s say you want to stay 7 nights at Wailea Elua Village which costs 30,000 points per night. A week’s stay would cost 210,000 points. With the current promotion, because of the cap, you would only get 30,000 points back.
So you would book two stays: a 4 night stay and a 3 night stay. This way, you get your 30,000 points back on the 4 night stays and 22,500 points back on the 3 night stay for a total of 52,500 points back.
This also works for stays at the new Mission Pacific hotel, a Category 5 hotel that costs 20,000 points a night.
A seven night point stay costs 140,000 points but the maximum rebate you can get is 30,000 points. Which means you’d lose out on 5,000 points. That’s a free night at a Category 1 hotel!
So you’d break up that stay into a 6 night stay and a 1 night stay. I recommend this if you plan to use a Globalist suite upgrade. Because the rebate is based on transactions, not stays. But if you’re uncomfortable and don’t want to take a chance of the full points not being rebated, if you are traveling with your partner, family member, or another person who also has Hyatt points, you could split the stay and each redeem points.
You can get a 25% rebate on Hyatt points when you redeem points at Destination by Hyatt, JdV by Hyatt, and The Unbound Collection by Hyatt for stays from June 15, 2021 through September 15, 2021.
There’s a maximum of 30,000 points per transaction. But there’s no limit on how many total points you can get rebated under the promotion. With creative booking you can ensure you get all your points back.
