Gah! I’m SO excited to share this “hack”! In a previous post I mentioned my best girlfriend and I take an annual ladies only trip, well, I’m not one to set small goals, so on top of paying only $90 for our airfare to Cancun, Mexico I was determined to make our trip as economical as possible! (so far the ENTIRE 5 day trip has cost a total of $180….airfare and All Inclusive hotel included!)
After a little late night web-surfing I learned that the Hyatt credit card has a sign up bonus of 2 Free nights (AT ANY HYATT PROPERTY) available after you sign up for their credit card and meet the minimum spending requirement.
As if that wasn’t sweet enough, cardholders ALSO get 1 free night at any Category 1-4 hotel or resort every year on the card holder’s anniversary.
WOW, right!? Without wasting a single minute I jumped on the phone to call Hyatt directly to see if our December travel dates where even a possibility for redemption of the 2 free nights. The sweet gal on the phone confirmed there was plenty of award space available so I applied for the Hyatt credit card immediately.
I knew I could use the 2 free nights, and transfer 50k Chase Ultimate Rewards Points (from my Chase Sapphire Preferred VISA) to cover the cost of the other 2 nights (we are staying 4 nights total).
Only 2 days after reaching the minimum spend requirement I received this beauty in my World of Hyatt account:
World of Hyatt (previously Gold Passport) award redemption is available for Hyatt Zilara Cancun by calling 1 866 567 7830 from within the US and Canada.
Spending a total of 7 minutes on the phone was all it took to confirm availability, transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards Points (Hyatt is a partner) for the 2 extra nights not covered by the sign up bonus, and have confirmation number in hand! The reservation agent was great and had no issue with staying on the phone while I transferred my Chase Ultimate Rewards Points to my Hyatt account (which only took seconds and the transfer was immediate!)
I instantly received an e-mail confirmation with our full reservation!
My BFF and I are pumped to experience this beautiful hotel….and even better that it’s her 1st ever out-of-country beach experience!

- Have you seen other places I’ve airline hacked?
- Have YOU learned to fly free?
- Have you wondered how I can afford to travel so much?
Where would you go if you had 2 free Hyatt nights ANYWHERE in the world?
