Why You Should Take Advantage of Hyatt’s Latest Offer (Double Up)

by Bill Shuman

Hyatt has been on a roll offering a variety of promotions across their brands this year. The last one covered was the Double Elite nights at Zilara and Ziva properties, which is still going on for those that need more elite nights. This week, Hyatt is leveraging their partnership with MGM properties once again to offer another promotion: Double Up. This allows guests to earn points for both loyalty programs while only having to stay at any participating Hyatt property.

As a poker player who is currently writing this from Gold Strike, an MGM property, it should be no surprise that I love my casino stays. Anytime I can stay at a regular hotel and boost my casino status at the same time is akin to looking down at Pocket Aces in Texas Hold’em, a real winner.

The Hyatt MGM Double Up Offer

In the email sent out by Hyatt, the marketing copy states:

Now’s your chance to double up and earn both M Life Rewards Tier Credits and World of Hyatt Base Points on eligible spend when you stay August 18 to October 10, 2019 at any participating Hyatt hotel.

Upon examining the Terms and Conditions further it states that each stay will earn five (5) Base Points and eight (8) M life Rewards Tier Credits per eligible USD spent during the promotion period. You must register for this promotion and use both your Mlife Rewards membership number and your World of Hyatt Membership number.

Here’s the list of participating hotels:

  • Park Hyatt
  • Miraval
  • Grand Hyatt,
  • Hyatt Regency
  • Hyatt
  • Hyatt Ziva
  • Hyatt Zilara
  • Hyatt Place
  • Hyatt House
  • Hyatt Residence Club
  • Andaz
  • Alila
  • Thompson Hotels
  • Hyatt Centric
  • The Unbound Collection by Hyatt
  • Joie de Vivre

Why I Like This Promotion?

Offers like Double Up and the previous Viva Las Vegas offer demonstrate the continued strong relationship between Hyatt and MGM International. The Double Up promotion has expanded this year as last year it was only good for Hyatt Place and Hyatt House properties. This shows that the partnership, which has been around for the last five years, is continuing to grow.

Here is a complete FAQ about the Hyatt and MGM partnership

Personally, the Hyatt and MGM partnership has been highly beneficial for me. Earlier this year, I was able to board the status matching train and earn both MGM Gold and Hyatt Explorist from one trip to Atlantic City. In addition, I leverage that matching into spending three free nights at the beautiful Beau Rivage property with my family. Not to mention all the comped poker trip to Gold Strike and Borgata.

M life Gold is MGM’s mid-level status but gives some top tier benefits that will save time and money at MGM properties.

Use Your World Of Hyatt Card For More Points

For those people that want to squeeze every maximum point out of every dollar spent, don’t forget to make your Hyatt bookings with your World of Hyatt Credit Card. Cardholders earn four points per dollar spent at Hyatt hotels. This means that for every dollar spent at participating hotels cardholders would earn nine World of Hyatt points and eight Mlife Rewards points.

In addition to earning 4 points per dollar other benefits such as Free Night Certificates come with the World of Hyatt Card Membership.

The Upshot

I wouldn’t plan any mattress runs around this promotion, but if I need a hotel night in the next few months, I will certainly be looking at Hyatt. These extra promotional points can add up to a nice chunk long term. From the Mlife perspective, these Tier credits are not huge. However, Mlife Rewards program Tiers expire on October 1st of each year which means this promotion is perfectly timed for those that need a small boost to get to the next level or for those that want to get a jump start on next year. Overall, Hyatt and MGM’s partnership is showing their best hand with each new offer.
