Today is #GivingTuesday, which follows on the heels of the consumer buying frenzy that is Cyber Monday. Although there isn’t just one day a year to focus on philanthropy and generosity, Giving Tuesday kicks off the charitable season with donation matches and opportunities.
Hyatt Gold Passport has announced a promotion where you can earn 20% bonus points on eligible spend when you stay in Las Vegas at Hyatt and MLife properties between October 19 and December 29, 2016.
Today another list of properties has been released that have had point-of-sale security incidents this summer.
Hyatt Gold Passport recently refreshed its website, and yesterday they announced the adjustment of hotel award categories for just over 100 properties for 2016 that go into effect August 1, 2016.
I personally didn’t run into a ton of navigation difficulties, but occasionally when trying to make reservations I’d get an error returned that said, “Sorry, we’re having trouble finding that page.”
I’d know that the page existed, but would have to start all over again. Worse was when I had a few minutes and wanted to pull something up quick, only to get their dreaded “website down” message.
While I’m not sure how many of those suites the property has (I’m guessing it is just two), it seemed backwards to me.
If you maximize this promotion and earn all 75,000 bonus Gold Passport points, it is enough to redeem for 2-3 nights at some of the most luxurious Hyatt properties in the world and still have points left over.
The Rio de Janeiro Grand Hyatt is situated right on the beach in the Barra da Tijuca neighborhood known for pristine white beaches, and the property is designed with mosaic floors, vertical gardens, and floor to ceiling windows in guest rooms. Some of them boast views of the ocean, lagoon, or both.
The property currently has 30 suites and a plethora different room types.
Especially during the holidays, it is easy to overlook or dismiss a charge or two, thinking that they were probably just extra gifts purchased perhaps by a secondary authorized cardholder.
Tis the season to give and get holiday cards. Even businesses get into the act, and when it comes to large companies with millions of members the cards are usually electronic and sometimes videos.
To celebrate the opening, the Hyatt Ziva in Cancun is kicking things off with special 50% off rates.
The guest rooms will be between 350 and 500 square feet and clustered together in groups of six to create bungalow-style lodging. I like that the rooms will reportedly also have two private terraces, with some including outdoor showers.
Hyatt properties are not required to offer Cash & Points rates, though most do. This new transparency will help us figure out which hotels offer it and which do not, so we don’t spin our wheels hoping for an available date when there are none.
Right on the hotel grounds is a repurposed shipping container which can grow one full acre of produce. That’s a lot of lettuce!
