World of Hyatt Promos Will Stack For Cardholders: 3 Elite Night Credits Per Stay
We shared some World of Hyatt news earlier in the week. It was a good news / bad news type of day. The bad news was that Hyatt finally had a roll out date picked for going to peak and off peak pricing (October 26th). This had been delayed for over a year now, because of covid, but it is finally happening. Make those speculative bookings now! The other news was a promo for Andaz stays which could be of interest to anyone chasing Globalist status or trying to get to 60 nights for that sweet, sweet concierge access.
Our buddy Eric at The Miles Man reached out with an interesting question. Would this offer stack with the new card offer from a little while back that offered double elite night credits? I figured that it would but said I would confirm with World of Hyatt directly. I am happy to say that they confirmed my suspicions, World of Hyatt promos will stack for cardholders!
What Does This Mean?
Here are the details of what the World of Hyatt credit card offered as a part of its welcome offer package last month:
New cardmembers who apply by September 30, 2021 will receive double elite night credits for stays between August 16 and December 31, 2021. This means earning 2 night credits for each night you stay at a Hyatt for the rest of 2021.
With this new Andaz offer any cardholders that signed up for the offer mentioned above would earn 3 elite night credits for those stays. That is pretty awesome!
World of Hyatt Globalist Math
Let’s crunch the numbers for this. With the reduced Globalist status requirements this year, only 30 nights, this stack is pretty insane and a ton cheaper than what it cost me to get status this year. You already get 5 elite night credits for holding the Hyatt card which leaves you with 25 nights needed. If you spent the $15,000 required for the free night certificate, which resets to calendar year starting 1/1/22, you would earn an additional 6 elite night credits. That brings your total needed to only 19 nights. If you spent most of those nights at an Andaz property you would only need to stay 7 nights the rest of the year to earn the most rewarding hotel status there is.
- Globalist Status – 30 Nights
- 5 nights from holding the World of Hyatt credit card
- 6 nights from spending $15,000 on your card (2 nights earned per $5,000 in spend)
- 18 nights from Andaz stays (6 actual nights in a hotel with the triple stack)
- 1 night at any Hyatt hotel, preferably a category 1 for only 5,000 points.
I think the cheapest Andaz in the US is in Savannah at 15,000 points a night. If you have a free night certificate then it is perfect as well. But assuming all points bookings that would be a cost of 90,000 points for the 6 nights. Eric said the cheapest in the world he could find was a category 2 in Abu Dhabi. That would drop the cost for 6 nights down to 48,000 points. Hopefully you had a trip to Abu Dhabi already in the works :).
Another option is to check cash rates for hotels like the Andaz Wall Street in New York City. They used to have rates in the mid $100’s on the weekends in the winter, this was pre covid though.
World of Hyatt Promos Will Stack – Final Thoughts
If you signed up for World of Hyatt credit card credit card back in September and were considering Hyatt elite status then you will want to take note of this. If you are visiting anywhere that has an Andaz before the end of the year it may be worth switching your booking. Assuming costs via points, or cash, are not that different. You could even get Globalist status with as little as 7 nights if you play it right.
