I find it interesting that any loyalty program sends out membership cards and kits anymore since you can use the airline and hotel APP for most things including a digital version of your loyalty card. SPG has really down-sized the kit the past few years and the only meaningful bit, to me anyway, has been their version of the “Job Well Done” cards that you can give out to employees who do a good job. So what did Hyatt send me?
Being someone who enjoys airport lounges what caught my eye right away was the two one-time United Club passes. The T&C on the back are a bit of a bummer as it says:
“Effective August 18, 2016, same-day boarding pass is required for entry”.
I am assuming they mean a United boarding pass even though that is not spelled out. I may push that if I still have them by then. I have very few plans to fly United in the near future! 😉
Next came a thick benefits and rewards guide. Now again, I can read all of this online so not exactly sure of the point of all of this.
I do like the “black” look of the Diamond membership card but it will go on my ring of cards I only get out now and then when I have to. Again, digital cards are just better.
I have to say I was impressed with my 1st Diamond stay at the Grand Hyatt DFW and enjoyed the perks they offer and they are a solid step up from SPG. My 2016 hotel year, focused on Hyatt, is going to be a fun year for me.
When it comes to Delta, I really want my Job Well Done and HOOU certs but they could digitally send those to me if they wanted to and I can print them at home. So what do you think of hotel and airline “welcome” kits. Are they worth sending out or just a waste of paper? – René
