I’ve gotten this offer from Hyatt a couple of times for a 3-night stay at the Hyatt Windward Pointe in Key West.


They’re offering a 3 night stay in a 2 bedroom suite for $425 PLUS 10,000 Hyatt Gold Passport points

Fine print of the offer

  • The fine print of the offer is
  • 4 days and 3 nights at our seaside resort
  • Spacious 2-bedroom, 2-bath suite with private balcony
  • Negative-edge swimming pool
  • Close proximity to shopping and nightlife of Mallory Square & Duval Street
  • Plus, 10,000 bonus Hyatt Gold Passport points

And of course, the biggie (emphasis mine)

This exclusive offer is only available when you join us for a private tour to learn about the benefits of joining Hyatt Residence Club.  Attend a 90-minute sales presentation (not exceed 120 minutes) at the Hyatt Residence Club sales center during their stay.

Timeshare pitches

I’ve actually never been on a timeshare pitch before, from Hyatt or anyone else.  My parents and aunts and uncles all have timeshare condos that they’ve used for an extended family reunion every other year for the past 20 years or so, and while I’ve attended, I’ve never had to attend a timeshare pitch.  Because the unit’s in my dad’s name, when they call I just tell them he’s not here 🙂

So while I feel pretty confident I can withstand the timeshare salespeople, I was wondering if anyone else had done something like this?  I see some reviews over on Flyertalk for this as well as a couple of the other Hyatt timeshare properties (one in Sedona, one in Maui) but curious if anyone else had done this before or had thoughts?
