Hyatt has already offered several promotions amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and registration is now open for a brand-new offer that starts next month.

Beginning March 1, 2021, as part of the hotel chain's new Bonus Journeys offer, Hyatt loyalists will have the following opportunities for elevated rewards:

  • Earn 2,000 bonus Hyatt points for every two qualifying nights spent in an eligible Hyatt property. Nights do not need to be consecutive.

  • World of Hyatt Credit Card holders will earn an extra 500 bonus points for every two qualifying nights, for a total of 2,500 bonus points.

  • Earn up to one free night award at a Category 1-4 Hyatt hotel after 10 qualifying nights.

The promotional window runs through June 15, 2021. You must register for the promotion by May 15, 2021, in order to qualify. There is no limit to the number of bonus points you can earn from qualifying nights in the promotional period. Both paid and award stays count as qualifying nights.

If you are planning some Hyatt stays during this time frame and don’t hold the World of Hyatt Credit Card, you may want to consider adding it to your wallet. New applicants who are approved will receive this bonus: Earn 30,000 Bonus Points after you spend $3,000 on purchases in your first 3 months from account opening. Plus, up to 30,000 More Bonus Points by earning 2 Bonus Points total per $1 spent in the first 6 months from account opening on purchases that normally earn 1 Bonus Point, on up to $15,000 spent.

Hyatt tops our list for best pandemic response

Though Hyatt has a smaller footprint of hotels when compared with bigger competitors like Marriott and Hilton, loyalists love the hotel chain for its outstanding service and rewarding loyalty program.

In NerdWallet’s analysis of hotels that have handled COVID-19 the best, Hyatt topped the list. It has implemented a number of customer-friendly change and cancellation policies, plus Hyatt ranked well in terms of social distancing and health policies.

This new Bonus Journeys promotion is the latest in a line of rewarding promotions for Hyatt loyalists during the pandemic. Hyatt has also slashed the requirements needed to reach Elite status by 50% in 2021.
