Breaking: 3 Free Nights (4 With Stacking) From Brand Explorer Perk Confirmed!
Earlier today I posted that it should be possible to earn 3 free nights from the World of Hyatt Brand Explorer perk. This is because they have added new brands to the system via partnerships. This pushed their total brands count to 17, up from 13. Because of this I assumed you could now earn 3 free night awards since it only takes 5 brands to earn one.
In the comments reader UA2 pointed out that there were still only two award trophies on the page leading them to believe it is still only possible to earn two, not three. This was a good point and I reached out to Hyatt for clarification. This was their response:
For every 5 brands a member stays in, they will receive a free night award. Technically, Hyatt only has 14 brands currently in the program now (as JDV, Alila and Destination are coming soon into World of Hyatt). Once we have 15 brands integrated, 3 free night awards will be possible to achieve.
So once the new brands are bookable you should see another award added to the system.
Did You Say 4 Nights Is Possible?
But wait it gets better. World of Hyatt is also running a promo where if you stay at the 4 new brands you can earn another free night cert. You must spend one night at each of the following brands before 12/31/19:
- Joie de Vivre
These will also count towards the brand explorer perk which is a nice double dip right there. You would only be one brand away from a second free night after those 4 stays.
I am glad my thinking wasn’t off base on this one. I am also pumped that it will soon be possible to earn 3 Brand Explorer perks free nights. And possible to snag 4 overall with proper planning and hitting the four new brands this year. If you have a two player system that is now 8 free nights that are up for grabs. Go out there and take them!
