Platinum Hyatt Gold Passport members had historically been awarded a Platinum Extras award for every 3 stays completed. The award options included a club upgrade, a food & beverage amenity or extra points when dining at a property (no stay required). The award was discontinued on 12/31/12.
My last award certificate was expiring on 3/31. I have no stays planned between now and then, so I decided to go for dinner at the Hyatt closest to my house, the Hyatt Lisle. Restaurant.com had a $10 certificate for $1.40 for Chatfield’s, so I snagged one a few days ago.
I ordered up some buffalo wings with a side of fries for dinner. I decided to go for dessert, and the banana chocolate cake on the menu was calling me. Well, it was the best cake that I have had in a long time!
If you have a Platinum Extras certificate sitting at home…dust it off. It’s time to spend it or loose it. Memorabilia is good, but 1,000 Gold Passport points and Banana Chocolate Cake is GREAT.
