I am considering purchasing, does this purchase process as Hyatt so that I can use my Hyatt credit card for bonus points?

Also is there a cap on the discount

What site does this go to?

On buyatab.com, I don't see a place to enter the offer code.

It goes to a Buyatab page on the Hyatt website. If you go to the Hyatt homepage, click on "gift cards" near the bottom right of the homepage.

Maybe the offer box comes up on 11/29?

I guess. Then disappears then comes back.

It's true that I get derailed on any checkout attempt once I see a coupon box, so if you have no active coupons, better to have no box.

Not sure if I'm tracking with you.....The offer for 10% off is only valid 11/29 to 12/2 and then again from 12/20 to 12/23.

Looking at the gift card FAQs:

Do I receive World Of Hyatt points when I purchase Hyatt Gift cards?

Yes and No. Hyatt Gift Card purchases are not eligible to earn World Of Hyatt points directly from Hyatt, however, when using the World of Hyatt or Hyatt Credit Card from Chase, 1 Bonus Point per $1 spent will be earned.

Is there a minimum amount and/or maximum amount I can put on a Hyatt Gift Card?

Yes. Hyatt Gift Cards have a minimum value of $25 and maximum value of $2000. You cannot buy any more than $10,000 of Hyatt Gift Cards within the same day.


There are no terms for the 10% promo itself, so conceivably you should be able to get $10K per day of gift cards.

Thanks for doing the legwork on that and posting it! Those of us who did not think to look for the fine print are now the wiser for it ^

How long has it been since a better offer on Hyatt? 20% off a couple years ago? Trying to decide if I want to go whole-hog on $10k...

.
So i dont really get it. If you get a 10% discount now, but no "payback" for staying and paying ( which i roughly count a 10% discount as a Glob) , where is the deal ?

I don't EVER remember seeing a 20% discount on Hyatt gift cards directly from Hyatt. I've seen 10% before, but I think it's been several years. Maybe I missed it.
Fairmont does 20% discounts on gift cards a couple of times a year and are offering them for a limited number of hours this Friday. See the AccorHotels Forum if you're interested.
