Hyatt and AA are offering a new bonus earning promotion. Through September 5, 2022, World of Hyatt members can earn 1,000 American Airlines AAdvantage miles for every stay at eligible Hyatt hotels.

This promotion ran a few months ago, but at that time it was targeted. Now it’s available for all Hyatt members, but first you need to register.

Quick Thoughts

In mid-2019, Hyatt and American Airlines launched an exciting partnership that’s lauded by elite members of both programs and then announced reciprocal shortcuts to elite statuses. There are certainly benefits to having your American Airlines and Hyatt accounts linked, such as earning 1 Hyatt point on every dollar you spend on American Airlines purchases.

While 1,000 AAdvantage miles probably doesn’t seem like much, it can add up in a hurry if you have a few Hyatt stays coming up. AAdvantage Web Special awards currently cost as little as 6,000 miles per way per person. That means you could potentially receive enough miles for an AA award flight from the bonus miles earned from six stays at a Hyatt.

In terms of monetary value, the value of this promotion depends on your valuation of AAdvantage miles. For example, I personally value AAdvantage miles around 1.5¢ apiece. So, 1,000 bonus miles is roughly equivalent to a $15 rebate per qualifying Hyatt stay. If you have 10 stays during the promotion period, you could earn up to $150 in value from this Hyatt promotion for AA miles.

Remember that you typically can stack hotel promotions. For instance, Hyatt has a promotion for 500 bonus points when staying at select new hotels. Keep your eye on our master list of hotel promotions to see other opportunities for stacking deals during the promotion period.
