Hyatt Regency AMEX Offer: $60 Off $200 (Expires May 27)

Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great Easter weekend.  Check your American Express accounts for this AMEX Offer: $60 off $200 at Hyatt Regency hotels.  I found this offer on my Old Blue Cash, Blue Cash Everyday, and AMEX Everyday credit cards.  I did not see this offer on any business cards.  Frequent Miler also has a rundown of some of the other newly released AMEX Offers.  I don’t have any upcoming Hyatt Regency stays, but I may need to look for some opportunities to use this AMEX Offer.

If you have any questions, please leave a comment below.  Have a great day everyone!

I’m in a Miles & Points Funk Part 1: Hotels

Good morning everyone, I apologize for my lack of blog posts recently, but I’ve found myself in somewhat of a miles and points funk. Usually, I’m in an upbeat, positive mood, but lately, I’ve found it hard to get excited about the miles and points game. It seems that everything that I once loved has changed for the worse (that might be a tad dramatic). Let me share what’s on my mind so you can see where I’m coming from. Let’s start with hotels first.

I recently spent 100,000 Radisson Rewards points for 2 nights at the Radisson Blu Crete, and I’m not impressed by the new Radisson Rewards program. Since the free night certificates for spending $10,000 (and $20,000 and $30,000) on the US Bank Club Carlson credit cards are only valid at hotels in the US, it’s not worth spending money on those credit cards. I tried to rally my fellow readers and travel blogger friends by sharing my dissa-point-ment with US Bank and Radisson Rewards on Twitter, but I got no response from either company. I plan on keeping both of my Club Carlson credit cards just for the 40,000 points on my cardmember anniversary.

(REPOST) 30% Bonus on Purchased World of Hyatt Points (Ends Today – 2/23)

Hyatt recently got in on the bonus season! Some opportunities to buy points are targeted, and some are publicly available. I’m sure we’d all agree that the public ones are more interesting and worth a look. Through February 23, World of Hyatt is offering a 30% bonus on purchased points. You have to purchase at least 5,000 points in your transaction.

Interjet Launches Cheap Flights from San Francisco (SFO) to Cancun (CUN) & Guadalajara (GDL)

Hat Tip to my girlfriend, Laura, for sending me the link :)

Good evening again, I have another quick post to share.  According to SFGate.com, Interjet, which is a low-cost airline from Mexico, is launching cheap, non-stop flights from San Francisco (SFO) to Cancun (CUN) & Guadalajara (GDL).  According to the article, “To celebrate the launch, Interjet is offering introductory round-trip fares to Guadalajara for $249 and to Cancun for $299”.  “Flights for both destinations will operate on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays beginning March 14.”  With that, I wanted to check out the schedule and compare it to other airlines flying to Cancun.  I pulled up Google Flights to check out March 14, but I didn’t see any Interjet flights. Hmm…

World of Hyatt Gift to Elites: 1 Suite Upgrade Award or 10,000 Hyatt Points?

Hyatt has been up to lots of good these past few months. First they settled the issues I was having with my World of Hyatt concierge, and I’m thrilled to report my new concierge is great! Then World of Hyatt announced that free nights on award stays would count towards elite status. OK, good news, indeed. And just like that, they retroactively combined my free nights from last year with my other eligible nights and gave me a gift. The announcement came one day, and then my email allowing me to actually choose came the following day. Though Hyatt gives you 90 days to make your choice, it took me about nine seconds, if that long. As a Globalist, I have plenty of suite upgrades available to me so thank you very much, I chose the 10,000 Hyatt points instead. So Hyatt starts off the year in our good graces, wouldn’t you agree? Anybody take the suite upgrade offer instead? Those suites can be really wonderful!
