Hyatt Selling Food & Beverage Credit At A Discount
I have received this offer a few times from Hyatt and I found it interesting and worth looking at a little deeper. On a few of my previous Hyatt stays they have sent me an email a few days before arrival with some offers. These offers usually include late checkout or and upgrade etc. But on the last few I have been offered food and beverage credit at a discount. This is very intriguing and I wonder if there is a way to stack it for even more of a discount.
Details of the Offer
On my most recent stay at the Grand Hyatt Denver (review upcoming) I received the offer 2 days before my scheduled check in. The Grand Hyatt Denver offered me early check in for $29 (1PM guaranteed). I thought that was a terrible offer but the one that caught my eye was $40 worth of food credit for $30. That is a discount of 25%, which is pretty great.
Hyatt is likely offering this in hopes that you will spend more money on the property. They are hoping you will go over the $40 or maybe not use it all creating breakage. If you decide to take them up on the offer be sure to use all of it. This is a great way to get a discount on room service if you are not a Globalist member.
Is Stacking Possible?
American Express comes out with Hyatt Amex Offers quite frequently. Depending on how these prepay food and beverage credits post you may be able to stack them with an Amex Offer. If they are simply billed at check out then you should have no problem stacking.
There is a good chance that they will bill for these credits up front before arrival though. Depending how it codes and if the Amex Offer is a cumulative one it could still work. Maybe someone who has taken Hyatt up on one of these offers can let us know how they bill.
I didn’t take advantage of this offer since I knew we wouldn’t be in the hotel much and I used a club access award for breakfast. But if it was in an expensive city like New York City and they had a good on site restaurant I would take advantage of it for sure. One could hope to get a similar offer at Grand Hyatt Baha Mar but I doubt that would happen. There are other ways to save money on food there anyway.
