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

Hi all! Doing 3 nights @ Grand Hyatt Berlin (CAT 4) Dec 16-19, so looking to buy 3 certs to cover the stay.
1. How are the certs applied (i.e can I be gifted a cert or do you add my name to your booking)?
2. If the booking was canceled (covid lockdown etc) what would happen to the cert?

Details appreciated, thanks!

1- either way works
2- once you buy a certificate, you own it and are responsible to use it before the expiration date, unless other agreements are made with your buyer

I have a globalist status with couple of confirmed suite upgrades to burn. Stay must be completed by 12/31.
Cert is not transferable so reservation must be made from my account. For paid say or  I can do points free night booking too (preferred method as booking can be made under your name) and you still get full Globalist benefit including free parking on points stay. If you can find a 7 free night availability at Andaz Maui, I can book you into a suite with a swim up pool and free full breakfast for 2 adults and 2 children every day and free parking for your entire stay. You can save thousands. Let your dream come true.

A bit of clarification... I learned that Hyatt changed the policy since last time I did the "Guest of honor" booking from my Globalist account and applied one of my suite upgrades that this is not allowed... or may be I was lucky last couple of times. So I can't do this any more.
Anyways, I am also not looking to sell my Hyatt points... you transfer your points to me and I book it under my Globalist account under "Guest of Honor" benefit instead of just booking it on your account. So best value can be had at locations that provides good globalist benefits... think lavish breakfast... especially if you are planning to travel with children and hotels has very expensive parking's like US domestic city locations. and your travel date has high chance of room upgrade at the time of check in (you can get up to Suite when available). So if you are couple traveling to all inclusive resorts or not really into breakfast then there isn't much point booking through me. Idea is to share my globalist benefits including possible upgrades at locations where benefits are greatest.

Separately I have two 1-4 category free night certs for sale from 1 discoverist account. $130 each or $250 for both if booked at once. Reservation booked under your name.
Then I also have another cat 4 cert from my Globalist account $150, this one can be booked using guest of honor so you will get full Globalist benefits.

Two follow-up questions:
1) Is the ability to gift the certificate (meaning that the buyer is listed as the primary guest on the reservation) only for Globalists? Or can anyone gift a cert?
2) When a Globalist gifts a cert, is that considered a GOH booking and all of the Globalist benefits would apply?
