After two lovely flights with the FirstClassQueen, we landed in Charlotte and sped to the Hyatt Center City.
I was kind of tired from our day of celebrating in the sky, so I was looking forward to heading up to my room and drinking a bunch of water and watching bad TV. (I’m so fun, I know). However, when I checked in, I realized that I had forgotten to bring my Hyatt Visa card. Dang it! This is the second time this month.
Luckily, I learned a tip from the last time this happened. If you decide that you want to use a different credit card after you’ve already checked out, you can contact the accounting department at the hotel you stayed in, and they can send you a form to fill out and fax back. I wish I had the form so I could take a photo and show you what it looked like, but unfortunately I shredded it days ago because I am a shredding/paper recycling fiend (I’ve accidentally recycled concert tickets more than once). So you’ll have to use your imagination to picture this form.
Bascially, you just have to enter a bunch of information: dates of stay, reservation number, name, address, phone number, credit card you actually used, credit card you want to use, and probably more.
While I’m annoyed that I made the same dumb mistake twice, I’m relieved that I won’t miss out on all the potential points.
Have you ever done this? Were you able to fix your mistake, or did you just chalk it up to experience?
