Did you know Hyatt allows you to transfer your free night certificate?

Your free night certificates expire 1 year after they are awarded. There may be times when you aren’t able to use yours.


As was our case, I am Hyatt Globalist and my husband is not. Strategically it makes sense for him to transfer his free night to me. So that we’ll get free breakfast for 2, possible room upgrade and late check out if the room is booked under my (Globalist) account.

How do you transfer your Hyatt Free Night Certificate?

You’ll need to call Hyatt at 888.354.9288. You should have your Hyatt account number available and the person you are transferring it to. The agent we spoke to said he couldn’t simply transfer the certificate to “live” in my account. But he could book the reservation we wanted (using my husband’s certificate) and it would be under my account. Which is exactly what we did. We gave him all of the information over the phone and later that afternoon I could see the reservation under my Hyatt account online.
