Newbie Question

  1. Hello all - I've been lurking for about a month and just joined MP. I tried to read up as much as I could on multiple sites but I cant find the answer to a question.

    I'll be heading to Seattle in April or so. I travel with different friends here and there for leisure, havent gotten too serious about the MRs yet but I am sure I will eventually.

    My question is if I book a Hyatt through a 3rd party and not through gold passport, will I still get a "stay" or "points"? My friend gets a great travel agent discount at the Hyatts and its about 60 bucks cheaper than the listed price on gold passport, so for 2 nights will be saving over $100.

    Welcome to MP. Unfortunately I have bad news. According to the Hyatt web page you would not earn points or stay credit. From the FAQ page:

    5. To receive Hyatt Gold Passport points or miles for a stay, I must pay an "Eligible Rate." What is an Eligible Rate?
    An Eligible Rate is any hotel published room rate worldwide except: Internet wholesale rates (including priceline.com, hotels.com, etc.), airline employee, travel agent/industry discount, inter-company or Hyatt employee discount, permanent contract/hotel contract room rates and tour packages.
     
  4. Ahh bummer. Thanks!

    Since I probably wont stay at a hyatt for more that 5 stays anyway, I think I will just go for the discount unless something crazy happens from now until when I book on gold passport!

    Thanks for the speedy response!
