Two Corporate Rates Everyone Can Qualify For

This i my first attempt at composing a post entirely with my smart phone, as I prepare for embarking on the most comprehensive Andaz Tokyo Toranomon Hills opening day coverage on the planet!

When you use hyatt.com to check room and rate availability, there is a special section for entering a “Corporate or Group Code”

Bring up this box by clicking Special Codes link

This area is generally for use by businesses or groups to receive discounted rates based on contractual agreements with Hyatt. Most of these are not for use by the general public, but today I will introduce two codes that anyone can use for a 10% discount off the Hyatt Daily Rate.

1. Costco

Good for something more than buying twenty pounds of spaghetti sauce!

The Costco rate can be accessed with corporate code 13365. It is available to anybody with a Costco store membership. This membership can be purchased for about $40 a year…but while the hotel may ask for a copy of your card, I can’t imagine that they actually call Costco to verify it, so once you have a membership card, you are probably good regardless of whether or not you choose to renew it.

2. Freelancers Union

Not to be confused with the Freeloaders Union

The Freelancers Union rate can be accessed with corporate code B200936. They are an organization of people who do work on a free lance basis.

Don't let the bright red colors scare you, they're cool!

It’s even better than the Costco membership in that membership is free, anybody can apply, and the application can be done online with a simple form.

This phone makes me screenshots very long and skinny.  Sorry 'bout that.

Of course, the 20% discount with the My Elite rate is better, but for cases where that rate is not available, or if you do not have Platinum or Diamond status with Hyatt Gold Passport yet, it’s good to have these codes in your back pocket.
