While this isn’t the most lucrative promotion, it’s worth looking into and signing up for, since you’ll still earn World of Hyatt points as per usual, plus the bonus Etihad miles.
World of Hyatt and Etihad Promotion: Earn 1,000 Miles Per Stay
To qualify for this promotion, World of Hyatt members must register through the dedicated landing page before February 29, 2024, and then earn miles on stays until March 30, 2024.
Each qualifying stay earns 1,000 Etihad miles, regardless of the number of nights stayed. The miles come in addition to the Hyatt Base Points earned, so there’s nothing you need to sacrifice to earn more miles with this promotion.
Stays qualify if they’re booked on an eligible rate, including Hyatt Privé, or redeemed using Free Night Awards. The check-out date must fall on or before March 30, 2024 in order to earn 1,000 bonus Etihad miles.
Furthermore, as with similar promotions, a stay is defined as consecutive nights in a property, regardless if you check-in and check-out on separate bookings.
It’s worth noting that Hyatt properties allow guests to choose between earning Hyatt Base Points or accruing airline miles.
During the promotion, if you choose to earn Hyatt points, you’ll earn them per usual, plus the 1,000 bonus Etihad miles. Conversely, if you choose to earn Etihad miles with your stay, you’ll earn the usual, flat-rate 500 miles per stay, plus the bonus 1,000 miles on top.
The promotion’s terms state that miles will be deposited six–eight weeks after check-out, which means that there might be a delay in them arriving in your account.

The devaluation caused the program’s sweet spots to disappear, especially with partner airlines, such as Royal Air Maroc and American Airlines.
