    You are probably correct, although I have heard of Hyatt properties extending elite benefits for stays booked thru Hotwire and Priceline.

    Sounds like they are selling 2-night Hyatt gift certificates. But they do not say what level certificates. My worry is that a 2 night stay at 'a Hyatt' could be inclusive of, say, a Hyatt PLACE property. And thus the certificates could be the lowest level cert, normally sold for $109 and thus only a $10 discount.

    If the 'value' of $500 were the normal cost of 2 certificates, and thus 2 ELITE certs for $199 this would be huge but there's no reason to suspect that is the case.

    Assuming it's Hyatt gift certificates, they are not points or elite stay/night-earning but status benefits should apply.

    Elite benefits, yes. Earning points and stay credit, no. I wouldn't use one of these unless I needed three or more nights and could pay for the extra nights myself.

    The links in the offer are to 31 specific Hyatt properties. I checked several that were all Hyatt Regencys in Atlanta, Dallas, Chicago and Grand Hyatt in D.C.

    They aren't affiliated. I'm pretty sure this guy just got a bunch of hotels to agree to give him a deal, and now he's reselling. This is not a Hyatt offer, it's a Bill Brown Discount Travel offer.

    This sounds to me like those "deals" where you first purchase a discount cert and then learn whether the hotel you want is available for any dates you can use. There can also be additional fees assessed when you enter the code in the website and to to actually make a reservation for this "deal." I'm sure everything is nonrefundable.

    It looks like it shows which properties work "Available Locations", but you may be right with the additional fees.
