Use Your Points And Double Your Savings At Select Hyatt Properties

While reading Big Habitat’s quest to earn the companion pass without signing up for any credit cards, I took another look into Southwest’s Rapid Rewards program.

I knew from my previous homework that Southwest’s Rapid Rewards were kind of poor unless you redeemed for Southwest flights, and knew Hyatt gift checks were available for redeeming from Southwest’s Rapid Rewards.

There is a great deal happening right now with Southwest and Hyatt and a large number of great properties. You could redeem 10,000 points for a $100 gift check and it would reduce your room rate of $200.

There are a few rules like using code: HDC208 and calling Hyatt to reserve with a 2 night minimum stay. A max of two certificates can be used on stays of four or more consecutive nights. (The link will drop you off to Southwest and you would need to click into the mall, otherwise it’ll say the session timed out)

Here are the terms and conditions:

Stay/Usage Requirements Reservations and this promotion are subject to availability at time of booking and must be made in advance by calling Hyatt at 1-800-555-0233 or your travel planner.

Can this be gamed?

After reading the terms and conditions, my interpretation appears not to be Southwest exclusive. However, on the Southwest site states if you order a $100 Hyatt gift check they will send you the additional $100 gift check. It is a bit contradictory between what Southwest has and what the terms and conditions state.

  • Tyvvvm for this post! Perfect timing!

    I am missing something or simply not comprehending. I see the 10k pts for $100 credit. Where does is state that it will take $200 off? I’m sorry for not getting this, but would be extremely grateful for you “dumbing this down” for me 🙂

  • Okay, this is totally confusing me… I think that what they are saying is that you order a $100 Hyatt Gift Check, which would be governed by the normal hyatt gift check rules, and then you get an additional coupon for $100 off a stay of 2+ nights, which is limited to the properties on the page and governed by those particular t&c.
    Does this sound right?

    • So wish we could get a response!

    • That is my interpretation – honestly, I think it’s best to call Southwest RR for more information becuase I do not have an account with Southwest
