Starting tomorrow, the Chase Hyatt Credit card will come with a welcome offer of 40,000 bonus points instead of two free night certificates that are valid at any property in their global portfolio, including aspirational (like the Park Hyatt Maldives and Park Hyatt Milan) and all-inclusive properties (such as the Hyatt Zilara Cancun, the Hyatt Ziva Cancun for up to 4 people, and World of Hyatt’s newest – Miraval Arizona Resort & Spa).
Other than the change in the sign-up bonus, all of the card’s benefits will remain the same, requiring only $2,000 spend within 3 months to receive the sign-up bonus. The Hyatt credit card has been a staple credit card in my wallet for 5+ years, and I have no problem paying the $75 annual fee each year, because of the annual category 1-4 free night certificate (which I recently redeemed for an amazing stay at the Park Hyatt Saigon).
If you enjoy staying at top-tier properties like I do, you can certainly get more than 40,000 worth of points when you apply for the offer that comes with the two free nights. If you’re traveling with a family, a family of 4 at an all-inclusive Ziva property will price at 50,000 points per night, per room, so you can essentially get a 100,000 point value!
It’s also worth noting that this card is NOT subject to the Chase 5/24 rule.
The Current Offer Details:
- Earn 2 free nights at any Hyatt hotel or resort worldwide after you make $2,000 on purchases in the first 3 months after account opening
- Receive a free night award every year after your cardmember anniversary at any Category 1-4 Hyatt hotel or resort
- Get 5,000 Bonus Points after you add an authorized user to your account and make a purchase with your card during the first 3 months as a cardmember
- 3 Bonus Points for every $1 spend at Hyatt hotels and resorts
- 2 Bonus Points for every $1 spent at restaurants, on airlines tickets purchased directly from the airlines and at car rental agencies
- 1 point for every $1 spent on purchases anywhere else you use your card
- Keep all the points you earn – your points do not expire as long as your Hyatt Credit Card account is open
- As a Hyatt Cardmember, you’ll enjoy Discoverist status in World of Hyatt for as long as your Hyatt Credit Card account is open
Overall, I think the Hyatt Credit Card is definitely a hotel credit card worth keeping, and if you don’t already have it and it’s on your radar, I’d consider applying today before the offer disappears tomorrow.
