Save Money on Hyatt Reservations!
« on: June 05, 2012, 06:13:10 PM »
Wife is on Diamond Trial Offer.

In exchange for booking through her (and getting Diamond benefits like upgrades, 4PM checkout, free breakfast and WiFi), I will pay $15/night towards your reservation.

If you're making a paid reservation to a Hyatt anyway, not a bad way to save a couple nickels.

It it only worth your while for paid night?  I have a stay booked in NY in a few weeks but am using points for it...id be happy to transfer the points to you and let you book it for me if there's any advantage to you.  Can you transfer points from one account to another?

You had point stays credit as stays,  that go toward qualified stays status ?

I didn't say all stays, just I had once a fluke where it got credited. Other points stays did not credit.

my case

Helps to have something on your bill...

I had 65 euros on my PHV Paris Bill. Mostly tips and one cup of tea  in the lounge . Do you think the type of charges , or amount makes a difference?
 Would have spent more if i knew it increased my chances of posting .

It's rare. I wouldn't spend any more than you did on the off chance.

in theory, more likely to just make a difference IF there's a bill than how much

Wife is on Diamond Trial Offer.

I guess DDF is the wrong place for something like this :)

$15 isn't enough to make up for the lost base points on room spend (at least 5ppd) at most Hyatts let alone the stay credit and/or other point promotions.

Tell that to the people who booked 7 nights thru me :P

It'd make sense for someone who isn't "in the game." Hence my post:
