Topic Wiki

There are two different types of hyatt nights. Sign Up Nights (referred to as "SUN"s) and anniversary nights. The sign up nights are from when you sign up for the hyatt credit card. The anniversary night are given to you if you keep the credit card after the first year. You get one anniversary night every year. The sign up nights can be used for any hyatt hotel in the world on any date where a Standard Room is available. The anniversary nights can only be used in hyatt hotels categories 1-4 (Notable category 4 hyatt hotels: Hyatt regency mission bay, San Diego Ca. Andaz peninsula papagayo, Costa Rico.). Obviously the sign up nights are more valuable as they can be used in any hotel worldwide. The way somebody would book this night for you is they would put you as a second guest on the reservation. It is not recommended to combine nights between 3 different accounts or more. Or 2 accounts that none is yours. Obviously any reservation from a diamond account is more valuable since you will get the benefits as a second guest.

Suite Upgrades:

Can be applied to any reservation whether cash, C &P or all points. It must be booked out of the Globalist Account. The Globalist must be the primary on the reservation as well. One DSU (They are actually called TSUs now) works for up to 7 days on a consecutive reservation for the base suite only. Before asking to buy one please check and make sure that the standard suite is available online to save everyone time. When you click on the suite description it will say if the suite is standard or premium if it is standard you can use the TSU if not, you cannot.

Select premium suites can now be booked for double points per night as well.

TSUs cannot be applied to free night certificates for some reason.

Some sellers prefer not to sell TSUs for international reservations as international Hyatts are well know for asking for the account holder to show up in order to give Globalist benefits. Maybe we should make a list of international hotels that are ok with it but that is a YMMV

Other benefits you receive when using a TSU: Free Breakfast for 2 adults and 2 children, 4 PM late checkout, no resort fees on any stay and free parking on award stays only

Per forum rules both buyers and sellers must post a price

If I'm waiting for a free night to come through, can I book the hotel with cash in the basic room type and cancel when I get my award, expecting the base room to now be available as an award night?

According to a Hyatt phone rep, you can book the basic room with cash, and when the free night posts, have them apply the free night to reservation.

If you're diamond, they let you book it even without points/free night and then once it posts you just call them to apply it.

Doing it the cash way may cause you to have to pay a little bit (even though you'll eventually get a refund).

Wife is diamond- but the certain are coming in on my account.

Why with cash would I have to get a refund? The hotels usually allow a booking with nothing down until a few nights before the stay no( or whatever the specific hotels policy is)

It depends on the hotel. I was once about to book a cash res and later Convert it but they wanted two nights upfront. Every hotels policy is different.

They didn't let me do that.

Why? Your card isn't charged at the time of booking.

I've done it three times already. Maybe I need to teach you how to be more persuasive.  :P

For some hotels, they charge you for 1 or 2 nights at time of booking. Speaking from experience. And no, it wasn't for a locked in reduced rate that isn't cancelable.

Booking a room on 20-03-2016. Anyone have a 1-night certificate available? Willing to pay $200 OBO. I responded to another seller before, but just checking to see if anyone else is offering. Thanks in advance.
