Re-link Hyatt to MGM Gold now

Biding my Marriott time before returning to Hyatt

Over the past few years, I’ve become a bit of a Hyatt fanboy.  In my opinion, Hyatt is the sweet-spot brand for those in the points & miles game for many reasons: Reasonable award chart Best top-tier elite benefits (free parking, no resort fees, suite upgrades at time of booking, etc.) Points easy to earn indirectly thanks to Chase credit cards that earn 5X, 3X, and 1.5X Ultimate Rewards points per dollar (see: Amassing Ultimate…

The terms do not seem to exclude an award stay, though I’ve read mixed reports about whether or not it will work if you’re using your Hyatt points. Unfortunately, the code increases the rate on paid stays, so this one may be less of a deal than it appears to be on the…
