From now through May 31, 2014 Hyatt Gold Passport members can double their points on reservations made in advance with participating properties. The trick is that you have to book the reservation using a “Double Points” rate, something which often makes me second guess if I’m actually getting a good deal or not.

How To Double Your Points

  • Book a double points rate at a participating Hyatt property using 2XPTS special offer code

Rate Comparison vs Extra Points

First off, let’s compare the amount of points earned by status level. Below is a list of the points earnings by status level. This will help you determine how many points you would earn as a baseline against the “double points” package.

  • Gold Member – 5 points per dollar
  • Platinum Member – 5 points per dollar plus 15% bonus (5.75 points per dollar)
  • Diamond Member – 5 points per dollar plus 30% bonus (6.5 points per dollar)

Next, you’ll need to compare rates of points earned through the package vs normal rates. Here’s an example:

Double Your Points Rate – Grand Hyatt Atlanta

  • Rate – $198.45
  • Base Points Earned – 5x per dollar
  • Bonus Points Earned – 5x per dollar
  • Total Base Points Earned – 1,984

Hyatt Double Points Rates

Advance Purchase Rate – Grand Hyatt Atlanta

  • Rate – $160.65
  • Base Points Earned – 5x per dollar
  • Bonus Points Earned – None
  • Total Base Points Earned – 803

The total cost above the advance rate is $37.80 per night, but with the double points package, you’ll earn an extra 1,181. This is essentially like purchasing Hyatt points for $.032 per point, not a good deal in my opinion.

Bottom Line

The double points promotion is a way to increase your total points earned during a Hyatt stay. If you are paying for your own hotel, it doesn’t make sense given the high cost per point.
