    It was a promotion of the new promotion or, better, put a pre-announcement of the announcement

    I think

    So if it's tailored just for us Milepoint members, I take it that we will see the return of Faster Free Nights? ;)

    Will everyone be able to participate in this promo, or will it be targeted like some previous ones?

    I'm curious about that too... does "tailored just for you" mean it's targeted, or targeted to Milepoint members, or what?

    It's funny to see the pre-announcement to the announcement, without any actual details. I guess they want us to know there's something coming up so we don't book all our nights with IHG yet :)

    "Tailored just for you" could mean than half of the people get a promo to earn one extraa HGP point after ten stays rather than being ineligible as has been the case for some recent promos.

    Or 'you' could mean 'Gold Passport members'.

    So I wouldn't try to take a hermeneutical approach here, I don't think an exegesis of Hyatt Gold Passport's post will be especially fruitful ;)

    it was addressed to "Dear Milepoint Members", not "Dear Gold Passport members".

    And given the lack of detail, of course we are going to parse every word and misinterpret it in many possible ways. What else are we supposed to do?

    Well, it appears this was also posted on Flyertalk. So it wasn't tailored JUST for us qua Milepoint members. So I figure it's ADDRESSED to Milepoint members, but not exclusive to Milepoint.

    If it's like IHG's Tailored Promo's then the loyal frequent guest will get screwed again and the people who never stay will get easy points/nights!

    Clearly that simply means that the FT members will get a promo, tailored just for them, as well. Seems very clear and straightforward. And as a member of both sites, I will obviously enjoy TWO promos, naturally stackable. Muhahaha!

    You better believe it. With IHG - the further it goes the worse it becomes.

    January 12 to April 30 - this announcement is simply a promo for what will be, according to the dates, the official Hyatt 2015 Q1 promo...

    2014 Q1 promo was "Endless Possibilities" and ran from Jan 12 to April 30, 2014.
    2013 Q1 promo was "Stay More Earn More" and ran from Jan 15 to April 30, 2013.
    2012 Q1 promo was ....

    You get the drift...

    I think Hyatt ran the "More Possibilities" promo from 3/1 to 5/31 in 2013, with 3k points for every 3 nights.

    I agree with you though, it's just an announcement of an upcoming promo, probably so that people will start thinking about their booking strategies for the first quarter, or at least think about waiting until January... :)

    I just booked my first trip for Q1 and had the choice between a Hyatt Place for $169 or a DoubleTree for $116. Don't think this promo will cause me to rebook (though I could as it's not prepaid).

    Not that it matters, but according to a contemporaneous blogpost "Endless Possibilities" ran from Jan 12 to April 30. "More Possibilities" may simply have been another, maybe targeted, promo running around the same time...

    My focus will return to requalifying my HHonors Diamond status so I doubt that I will plan any Hyatt stays that early in the year, but I will keep my mind open just in case the promo is irresistible...;)

    Anything is better than nothing.
    But I don't like "tailored just for you".

    If this is good I'll convert some of my points stays schedule for April to cash stays.
