Some Hyatt Gold Passport Diamond members woke up to a “Thank You From Hyatt – Enjoy 50,000 MileagePlus Award Miles” email from Hyatt. The email was sent at 8:01AM (Eastern or Mountain time).
Hyatt Gold Passport and United will deposit 50,000 Mileage Plus miles to those Diamond members that received the email.
At Hyatt, we are excited to have the opportunity to show our appreciation for our most valued guests. In recognition and appreciation of your loyalty, we enthusiastically extend to you 50,000 United MileagePlus® award miles, to be deposited into your MileagePlus account within the next 2-3 weeks. We hope you enjoy this gift on behalf of Hyatt and MileagePlus. As always, we are truly grateful for your loyalty and look forward to welcoming you back very soon.
According to HyattPR on Twitter, this offer was sent to very few most loyal Diamond members that were selected with the help of United. There are United 1K’s that have had more than 100 Hyatt nights this year that didn’t receive this offer.
There is a lively discussion on FlyerTalk about who had received this offer and who had not. Seems that having a Hyatt credit card was not a requirement, being Hyatt Diamond was, and you must had credited some Hyatt stays to United miles at some point. They wouldn’t otherwise have your Mileage Plus number on file.
This is a very generous offer from Hyatt & United. But, at the same time, you can ask a question if it is going to drive move business? There is no requirement for the receiver to do anything to get the miles.
Congratulations for all of those that woke up to an email for 50K United miles. It is a very nice gesture and I wish that they would have had something similar when I was staying in excess of 100 nights per year at Hyatt’s.
In all fairness, my Hyatt stays are way down this year. There just haven’t been as exciting promotions compared to previous years to get me to pay for stays at their chain compared to Hilton. InterContinental & Starwood.
