Hyatt today announced their upcoming promotion called Bonus Journeys that is valid for stays between July 20 – September 15, 2021.
World of Hyatt members earn triple points for stays of two nights or longer after registration. The maximum number of bonus points earned under this offer is capped at 120,000.
You can access this offer on Hyatt’s website here.
Note that you must register for this offer between July 7 – August 20. Only stays consumed after registration are eligible for the bonus points.
Stays at M life Rewards destinations, Small Luxury Hotels of the World (“SLH”) hotels, and Lindblad Expeditions also count in addition to all Hyatt brands.
This offer works better for expensive stays than a flat bonus of 2,000 points every two nights during the current promotion that ends today.
Unfortunately, Hyatt has decided to take a month between global offers, but you can always move your stays to chains with offers going on, such as Hilton Honors and IHG Rewards.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
