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

Subsidized Globalist stays before Feb 28.

I'll pay you 15% of the base price of your stay, or $30/night, your choice. So if your stay is $300, you'd get $45 from me. Even if your stay is only $80, you'd get a minimum of $30 per night.

And you get Globalist status for your stay. I can throw in a suite upgrade certificate for any bookings of 5+ nights or >$1k.

At the time of this writing, my 15% offer is the highest in this thread. I've got many Hyatt transactions of this type over in the Reddit marketplace, please let me know if you'd like references.

FYI, I'll match the $40/night offer in this thread. I'm also upping my 15% subsidy offer to 20%.

I donít get it. Just book a Cat 1 for 4250-3750 points per night and get your stay credit. Why the need for all these crazy subsidies?

I also don't get it. If acct is globalist already what makes it worth paying 20$ a night ?  For the tier bonus ?

Hyatt lowered 2022 requal requirements to half (30 vs 60). And they are giving double night credits for all stays before Feb 28. So essentially people can requal through Feb 2023 by staying 15 nights by Feb 28.

But offering 20% subsidy seems a bit outrageous. I donít see the logic or the math behind it.

I have done several times at multiple properties and it has worked no problem at all in.  there is no risk to this whatsoever if it's a cash state

Not sure this is true.  What if they say we canít check you in until all of your party is here with passports including the persons whoís account the reservation was booked out of?

20% subsidy is basically just buying points at 1 cent/point and getting the 2x nights for free. Basic earn is 5 points per dollar spent, bonus journeys adds 10 points per dollar spent, and Globalist is another 30% basic earn for 1.5 points per dollar spent, netting 16.5 points per dollar on regular Hyatt stays. Resorts are an additional 5 points per dollar, giving 21.5 points per dollar spent. Add in the 2x nights, and it's not a terrible deal for him to give 20% back.

This happened to me at the Regency in Toronto last year. Dropped the SO off to check in because she wasn't feeling well and made a quick run to the drug store. They wouldn't let her into the room until I got back. Is there another method to guarantee someone can check in internationally aside from the second guest on the reservation?

It's a cash booking. They just change the name. They can't reject you. Globalists don't get special rates.

And I am talking from experience. Are u ?

Was this a cash booking or points ?

I highly doubt this was the exact case. If the second name is on the system , this is what it is meant for. Perhaps the second name wasn't there or the frond desk agent couldn't find it, or she didn't have a credit card in her name
 It defeats the purpose of the second name feature.

Cash booking, they wanted the passport of the primary guest. Second guest was on the reservation and she had her own credit card, but we didn't try switching the reservation to her name. From what I understand, that would remove any globalist benefits associated with a booking. You're welcome to doubt any data point that doesn't align with your narrative though

So u answered your question. They could switch the name  but reject the benefits. But they won't deny check in. Getting the globalists benefits for second guest checking in is never a guarantee. Not even in USA

It's absolutely logical. I value Hyatt points at 1.2 cpp, so on a $100 stay I'd pay the person $20 and get 1,650 points, which I value at $19.80, about the same. I get the qualifying nights as an extra perk, and the other person gets Globalist benefits for their stay.

The offer that was posted is 40 a night. And if room is 40$ there isn't really any point earnings

If you message Hyatt on twitter, they can let you know. Or you can call. Not sure if thereís a way to confirm online

If the room is $40 a night then he still gets $8 worth of points back, effectively creating a $32/night mattress run. Not optimal, but there are people on Flyertalk spending more per night for their mattress runs.

With that being said, I don't think most travelers are booking $40/night rooms. I've had a number of people reach out to me, and every single one was looking for a $150+/night resort.
