Will buying a $300 GC at Hyatt Place Trigger Credit for Promo?

Hyatt is currently running a promotion where you can earn a $50 credit for Hyatt Place or Hyatt House Stays. They mention that "Cardmembers who spend $300+ directly with Hyatt Place or Hyatt House properties in the US and Canada on their Hyatt Card can earn a $50 statement credit on their Chase account."

So I'm wondering if I was to go to a Hyatt Place or Hyatt House and purchase a $300 gift card if that would trigger the credit? Thanks so much in advance for your help everyone!

This was in the T&C in the email I received:

Offer not valid for gift card purchases or purchases made online or through third-parties.

Sometimes it would still work anyways for these type of promos, but there's nothing you can stand for if it doesn't work. The T&C says it shouldn't work for GCs.

Do Hyatt properties even sell physical gift cards anymore?

Received the same promo. Does the $300 have to be in a single stay or can it be spread out between a couple?

No dice at the last several I tried, but that was probably two years ago.

I think they wiped away this option during their GC fraud fiasco.

Possibly Hyatt owned properties? I have gotten them this year at GH New York. I've never asked at a HP though.

Interesting. I haven't seen a physical gift card for sale at a Hyatt property in several years.

There wasn't a rack or anything, I had to ask at the front desk. The agent didn't know how to process it, had to bring the manager over to walk through it. So it didn't seem that they sell many there. I'd be curious to see if anyone has purchased one at an HP recently.

I've been able to buy gift cards at my Hyatt Place (non-corporate owned) and it has triggered all the prior Chase and Amex offers.

Did anyone receive their $50 statement credit yet? It does say to allow 8-10 weeks...which probably was reasonable back in the day before computers.

Yes, I had the same experience. A few years ago, I bought several gift cards from neighborhood HPs, but it appears, according to the manager with whom I spoke, that when all the gift card fraud was rampant in 2017 and early 2018, all hotels were told to pull the cards and stop selling them. He and I were both am certain that the technology still exists to complete the sale, but the hotel would be going against corporate by selling anything they still have locked away in their safes.
