Who here likes Hyatt? A lot of you probably raised your hands, and it’s no surprise.
The chain has done a lot to earn loyalty from its members, especially when it comes to rewarding those who stay often.
Now, Hyatt has launched another promotion allowing you to earn double points at eligible MGM Resorts. Let’s take a look at all the details!
This promotion will award you with double World of Hyatt points for MGM Resorts stays in Las Vegas. Here are some of the other details you should be aware of:
- Registration is required
- Valid for stays from now through October 15, 2022
- There are 13 eligible hotels in Las Vegas
- You’ll earn a total of 10x points per $1 spent
Is It Worth It?
The best way to leverage this promotion may not be for the point-earning potential, but rather the ways in which it could be used to re-qualify for World of Hyatt elite status, thanks to the reciprocal relationship between Hyatt and MGM, which allows elite members to match tiers in each program.
Las Vegas is known for its exorbitant resort fees, but those with either Explorist or Globalist elite status with Hyatt are matched to MGM Gold — which waives both parking and resort fees on your stays.
This presents a uniquely lucrative option for Hyatt members looking to re-qualify for status. Here’s an example of a 3-night stay in mid-August at the Excalibur Hotel & Casino, where room rates are as low as $15/night:
With resort fees waived — and eliminating that comp night — you’ll see that the 3 nights total out at just $45. These can then be credited over to Hyatt, where you’ll need 60 nights in order to qualify for Globalist elite status.
And sure, you won’t earn a ton of points on just $45 worth of room spend, but the promotion certainly helps to bring down the cost. As a non-elite member, you’ll come away with 450 points for this stay.
According to our valuations, World of Hyatt points are worth 1.5 cents apiece, which means you’ll come away from the stay with $6.75 worth of points. At this rate, it’s worth a double — or triple — look at mattress running.
