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

Selling 3 free Hyatt nights, 300 per night/800 for all three, or best offer. 1 expiring end of August (the 26th I think), 2 expiring beginning of September. Two different Discoverist accounts. (I'm in NYC during the week if help needed for check-in.)

Bump. Will take $250 a night (I'll also take recommendations for worthy uses within a 2-3 hour flight of NYC as an alternative).

Any recent data points for SUN at international locations, in terms of asking for both passports?

Consider booking 1 night in your name on the front, then merging reservations later.  I'm 100% with that.  Otherwise, I recently did the Ziva Rose Hall with no issues without doing that.

It's a bit more complicated.  You can have the person you bought from call Hyatt and ask to make you the primary on the reservation.  They will need your Hyatt account details (#, name, address, phone, e-mail).  This transfers the reservation entirely to you (including stay night credit).  It does take the call, and not all sellers are willing to do or are aware of this option.

Has this changed recently that we can call Hyatt to change the reservation primary to another person for the anniversary night?  I know using points is always fine but I thought Hyatt certificate was not transferable.  When I sold my certificate last time, I called Hyatt to add the buyer's name to the reservation as secondary guest.  Then I ask the rep to put a note in the reservation that the secondary guest will check in before me.

You can still do this.
I am actually looking to purchase a suite upgrade for Jan 2019. Please let me know if you have one and what you are interested in selling it for
