Staffperson 2: "We could just keep postponing things indefinitely.."

Boss: "Tell you what, lets just wait until the first date of the promotion period and we'll throw them a bone (puffs on electronic cigarette)."

Staffperson 3: "Remember, I T department needs at least 1 month for programming"

Boss: "That's never stopped us before. OK, meeting adjourned"
(Boss sitting with feet on desk surfing web)

Staffperson 1: Boss? There is an angry crowd outside screaming for promos. What do we do?

Boss: (Hits mute on keyboard) Refer them to the website, that will keep them busy for a while, oh and, tell IT to increase the regular shut down of the site to three times a week. That will buy us some time to come up with a promo. I'm thinking of a coffee promo, something like "Stay for coffee and get two nights free."

I wouldn't expect to see anything before noon EST. That's the usual MO.

With your level of enthusiasm you should be in Haiti handing out crackers and telling the starving people it is a 5 course meal.
I hope you are not equating the lack of Hyatt promos to the plight in Haiti. That is just not right

sitting here in Europe, and seeing the German Hyatts at/near capacity and charging top dollar for most of the next two months, I'm not really surprised that they're not rushing out a promo... why give away cash ?
[understand that the business is different in the US, but you can't rejoice in all those free cc nights and then bithc and noam about lack of a promo... can you ? ]

No I'm not, I can stay at a Hilton anytime! Just give me one more promo and then I'll stop! I promise! I will even stay at a Motel 6 if I can just have one more promo!
