Oooh - that'll get the fur flying !

And sadly after about 11 nights in August/early September, don't think I'll have many in Q4. Still, loving the treatment that this diamond is getting in the hotels...

Sucks for me Most my stays are 1-2 nights so 3 stays = 5k.. even just G bonuses would have been better. Even worse than the last 5 nights = 10k

Unhappy

Looks like this will repalce FFN and be the standard promo GP offers annually. I think they should at least do FFN once a year for Hyatt creditcard holders only.

No FFN then, and a rather low max earning as well!

Extremely underwhelming.

Are we at least getting the G bonuses back?

An earnings cap plus a short (2 month) earnings period makes this very underwhelming. I certainly wasn't expecting FFN but I wasn't expecting this either.

With only two months, I'll likely only earn 5K bonus but I guess I'll take it. I need all the points I can get for next year's vacation!

Yawn, yawn, yawn.

The industry leader continues to disappoint.

The party that "invented" the free night promotion gets its lunch eaten by Starwood, Priority Club, Hilton, even Wyndham. Come on Hyatt, you cancel G bonuses, you cancel FFN (seemingly permanently), you're getting taken to the cleaners by your competitors on promotions. Where's that leading innovation anymore?

Disappointing, but not surprising.

Are we seeing a downward trend, where every promo seems worse than the last?

Though not much, I will take whatever is offered.

I assume this promo can be used in conjunction with the Costco rate (3rd night free)?
