Related: 10% Off Hyatt eGift Cards
I have 7 AMEX cards that had a targeted $50 off $150 Hyatt Place offer. I registered all of them using the multi-tab method described in the AMEX Offers post.
I called my local Hyatt Place to confirm that they sold gift cards and went there today for the first time since Hyatt ended years of FFN
insanity fun that ran annually or semi-annually from about 2002 through 2010.
This was actually the first gift cards that the hotel had ever sold. I first bought a $150 gift card to test the waters and sure enough I got the familiar “Congrats!” email from AMEX. Then I bought a $900 gift card and split the tender onto my remaining 6 AMEX cards.
$1,050 in Hyatt gift cards for $700 is nothing to sneeze at. Especially considering that even if I am using points I can still charge activities (like a helicopter ride in Kauai, etc) and parking to the room and pay for it with the gift card. And of course it will work for Hyatt Points+Cash as well. The gift cards are Hyatt Place branded, but are valid at all Hyatt hotels in the US, Canada, and Caribbean.
In general buying a gift card is an easy way to lock in AMEX Offers savings. Works great for offers from WalMart, Best Buy, Marriott, and Amazon, and any other store as well! Post where you have bought discounted gift cards thanks to AMEX Offers!
