Hyatt Gold Passport seems to have returned the mobile booking bonus based on an email that a reader sent me with a link to FlyerTalk.
A FT member reported (access the post here) that a Hyatt representative had told him/her that there is a promotion for 500 bonus points for app booking(s) September 1 – November 30, 2016.
There is no landing page on Hyatt’s website for this offer (there was none in 2015 either).
You can probably only earn this bonus one time.
Cannot remember the last time I opened the Hyatt Gold Passport app. At least used to be equally as bad and stable as Hyatt’s website. Will probably make one booking using it, however, and collect the bonus points.
Last year also bookings made using Hyatt’s mobile website were eligible. Not sure if that is the case this year as well.
