Update: Registration has closed for this promotion. If you registered by June 30, 2021, you can earn the 1,000 bonus miles per night through July 31, 2021.

In mid-2019, Hyatt and American Airlines launched an exciting partnership that's lauded by elite members of both programs. Now, Hyatt just announced the latest facet of this partnership. Through the end of July 2021, targeted World of Hyatt members can earn 1,000 American Airlines AAdvantage miles for every night stayed at a Hyatt hotel.

Earn 1,000 Bonus AAdvantage Miles Per Night Key Terms

  • Registered members can earn 1,000 bonus AAdvantage miles for every qualifying night completed at any Hyatt hotel between April 15, 2021 and July 31, 2021.
  • Eligible nights at all Hyatt-partnered brands qualify—including Small Luxury Hotels and Lindblad Expeditions.
  • The maximum you can earn is 30,000 bonus AAdvantage miles through the duration of the promotion.
  • To earn the bonus miles, members must register by June 30, 2021.
  • If you're eligible for this promotion, you most likely received an email from Hyatt. However, all World of Hyatt members can check their eligibility using the open registration page.
  • It appears Hyatt may have targeted AAdvantage elite members — and perhaps specifically those who don't have World of Hyatt elite status
  • This promotion applies to both paid stays and award stays, provided you book directly with Hyatt.
  • Bonus points will post within 4 weeks of each completed stay.

Quick Thoughts

I think it's fair to say if you're targeted for this promotion, you're probably pretty happy about it. (At least, you should be.) While 1,000 AAdvantage miles probably doesn't seem like much, they add up in a hurry if you have a few Hyatt stays coming up. AAdvantage Web Special awards can go for as little as 5,000 miles per way per person. That means you could potentially receive enough miles for an AA award flight in as few as five Hyatt nights.

In terms of monetary value, the value of this promotion totally depends on your personal valuation of AAdvantage miles. For example, I typically value AAdvantage miles around 1.5¢ apiece. So, 1,000 bonus miles is roughly equivalent to a $15 rebate per qualifying Hyatt night. Moreover, if maximized, 30,000 bonus miles would be worth around $450.

This promotion stacks nicely with Hyatt's current Bonus Journeys Promotion, which runs through June 15, 2021 (register by May 15, 2021). As a reminder, that promotion offers members up to 2,500 bonus Hyatt points after every two nights and a free night certificate after ten nights.

If you stack these two promotions, a ten-night stay could deliver up to 12,500 bonus Hyatt points, 10,000 bonus AAdvantage miles, and a category 1–4 free night certificate. And that's in addition to your normal Hyatt point and AAdvantage mile earnings! Now you can see how these bonuses add up in a hurry!

The Grand Hyatt Manchester in San Diego, California is a great use of Hyatt category 1–4 free night certificate.

Bottom Line

Hyatt and American Airlines just released their latest partner promotion good for stays from April 15 through July 31, 2021. During that timeframe, targeted Hyatt members can earn 1,000 bonus AAdvantage miles per night at Hyatt properties worldwide.

Unfortunately, I wasn't one of the lucky ones to be targeted for this fun promotion. However, for those that were, be sure to register before completing your next stay. Your next AAdvantage award flight could be only a few Hyatt nights away.

    lamentablemente en Argentina parece que la asociaciòn de AA con Hyatt no tiene validez, he consultado en Hyatt Mendoza y no hay suma de millas, alguien sabe si en el resto de Hyatt de Argentina suman millas ? gracias

  • I was only targeted once. Hopefully a little more lucky next time.

  • Lillian Dikovitsky says:

    I wasn’t targeted.

  • I’m not yet at Hyatt member so I am going to register for the program right now. I have a couple of road trips coming up this summer I was trying to decide between hired Marriott. I guess I know which hotel chain I’m going to stay with! Thank you.

  • I haven’t been targeting, but I am going to register and see if I can take advantage. I have a hyatt stay coming up in a couple weeks!

  • Hyatt & AA promos have been interesting, unfortunately haven’t been targeted for any of them.

  • I was targeted and I haven’t flown AA or stayed at Hyatt for years.

  • My accounts weren’t linked and I was hoping that linking them would result in becoming eligible, but alas that didn’t work and it’s been quite a few days.

  • Venkat Akileshwaran says:

    Finally, a promotion that I can actually use. Will allow me to use my expiring AA miles as well as use Hyatt, which has a good lineup of hotels.

  • How quickly do AA miles post after a Hyatt reservation?

  • Not traveling now, hope for better promotion when traveling is safer.

  • 1000 AA points per night are very generous. Just checked, too bad I’m not targeted. I only received a reminder to register to “Earn Bonus Points Every Two Nights”.

  • Unfortunately, I wasn’t targeted (Discoverist status). I have an upcoming stay that would have qualified. Thanks for the update. I will continue to look out for others in the future.

  • Thanks for the update. I’m also not among the lucky ones.

  • Always appreciate these updates because sometimes I just forget what offers are out there or if I registered. Thanks

  • Wow, AA and Hyatt is working towards the kind of partnership, similar to the one between UA and Marriott.

  • I have Globalist status but not AA elite starus & was targeted.

  • Any chance Marriott will do something similar? I have a business trip coming up but it’s at a Marriott brand.

  • not every one is welcome in this trap

  • Thank you for quantifying the value of the miles/points – that is very helpful in comparing the monetary value of different rewards.
