United is running a promotion with Hyatt where you earn 5,000 United Miles with every stay at a participating Hyatt hotel from September 1st through October 31, 2009.
- Stay at any Hyatt worldwide between September 1 and October 31, 2009.
- Provide your Hyatt Gold Passport and Mileage Plus account numbers at
reservation and check-in.
- Request Mileage Plus miles at check-in for each of
your eligible stays.
This sounds like a great promotion to use if your staying at a Hyatt hotel. For the past few months Hyatt has been running a 2,500 Hyatt point per stay promotion when you pay with a MasterCard. The 2,500 point promotion expires this week, September 15th. So this new promotion with United is very timely.
The key thing to note with this promotion is it is yet again a “per stay” promotion and that it is only marketed to United 1k members. So if you can find a few Hyatt hotels in the city you are in, you can earn 20,000 United miles per week (5,000 x 4 nights) depending on how many nights in your staying pattern. After a few weeks you could have enough for a business class trip to Europe on Starr Alliance.
