World of Hyatt announces 3X points promo; delays peak pricing

Expired

Register and earn 3X World of Hyatt points on stays from 20 July to 15 Sept 2021; plus further delays to peak/off-peak pricing.

World of Hyatt has announced their latest Bonus Journeys promotion, which is valid for stays between 20 July to 15 September 2021. This unfortunately leaves a gap between the previous promotion (which ended 15 June) and the start of the next, but hey, it’s not like we’re headed anywhere anytime soon…

Register Here (from 7 July)

The chain has also decided to further postpone its implementation of peak and off-peak award pricing. This was originally set to be introduced in March 2020, but has been pushed back numerous times due to COVID-19.

Registered World of Hyatt members who stay from 20 July to 15 September 2021 will earn 3X points on all stays of at least two nights. 

This promotion is valid for stays at all Hyatt properties, participating MGM resorts, selected SLH locations, and Lindblad Expedition experiences. Any stays booked prior to registration will still qualify, provided you register prior to check-out of your first stay. 

World of Hyatt members usually earn 5 base points per US$1, and will earn a further 10 bonus points per US$1 with this promotion. Here’s the total points members of each tier can expect to earn:

A maximum of 120,000 World of Hyatt bonus points can be earned with this promotion, which means you’ll max it out with US$12,000 of spend (since the bonus component is 10 points per US$1). 

It looks highly unlikely that Singaporeans (even vaccinated ones) will be able to travel freely by September, but maybe, just maybe, the Hong Kong ATB will come through by then. That would at least expand the number of options for Singapore-based members to stay at, because otherwise it’s just the Andaz Singapore (review) and Grand Hyatt Singapore (review). 

As a reminder, World of Hyatt has reduced its elite status requirements by 50% for 2021, so you can earn Globalist with just 30 nights instead of the usual 60.

World of Hyatt has delayed peak pricing again

World of Hyatt originally planned to introduce peak pricing from March 2020, but delayed it till July 2021 due to COVID-19. The latest news is that peak pricing has been further postponed- it will now be introduced for bookings made from mid-October 2021, affecting stays from March 2022. 

Here’s how off-peak and peak pricing will affect awards.

Unlike Marriott, Hyatt will fix its peak, standard and off-peak dates as soon as nights are released for reservations (~13 months in advance). This means that if a given date is off-peak, it will remain off-peak no matter what (unlike Marriott, where off-peak dates could later become peak dates). 

Peak and off-peak dates will be based on the geographical market. For example, all properties in Bali will have the same peak and off-peak dates. While the majority of days will be set to standard redemption rates, there is no limit on the minimum or maximum nights a property can designate as peak/off-peak. 

If you have an existing award booking for a night that’s re-designated off-peak under the new system, you’ll automatically receive a refund of the difference. If your night is re-designated as peak, you won’t be charged anything extra.

Conclusion

Be sure to set a calendar reminder for 7th July and register for World of Hyatt’s latest promotion. While there aren’t many great opportunities for using Hyatt points in Singapore, you’ll definitely want to earn a few more on your staycations where possible.

As for peak/off-peak pricing, the full impact remains to be seen. If it’s any consolation, the largest increase you’ll see for a standard room is 5,000 points per night, and I don’t think many resort areas will implement peak pricing at the onset unless the tourist floodgates are reopened all at once.

The other good news announced is the extension of points expiry to Dec 31 from Jun 30. I have a cache of points expiring and was thinking of having a drink at Bar Square Andaz to top up my points and reset the expiry. Then P2HA hit, and now looks like dining in won’t return next week. Was about to pull the trigger to pay US$24 for 1,000 points; but am relieved I have six months more to go. Maybe we can travel by then; but even if we can’t, I will remember not to wait till the last minute… Read more »
