UPDATED: Offer is dead – Hyatt seems to have taken down the page.
The past few weeks we’ve seen offers for free miles but now we have an offer for free elite status, as Hyatt is giving away Platinum status! Hyatt Platinum status normally comes after 5 stays or 15 nights in a calendar year or for having the Hyatt credit card – but now for a click of a button, you can have it too!
The following are the benefits of Hyatt Platinum status:
- 15% Bonus on Points earned on Hotel Stays
- Room Upgrades to Preferred or Larger rooms, Based on Availability
- Free Internet Access
- 2pm Late Checkout
- Confirmed Bed Type at Check-in
- Dedicated Check-in Lines for Elite Members
I think the most valuable benefit is the free internet access which can easily cost $10 per night at most Hyatt hotels. And the opportunity to get upgraded while earning a nice 15% bonus isn’t too shabby either.
Now the landing page for this offer does say it is targeted towards Microsoft employees but many people have already reported it working as there is no restriction to stop anyone from signing up for this offer.
All of those benefits for taking 10 seconds to signup? Ya, I say this qualifies as a #GoodDealAlert.
