I applied 7/6 and it took until several days ago before the 5 nights were showing. I had an old Hyatt cc and cancelled.
My wife applied 7/3 and her 5 nights have not shown up yet. She did not have a Hyatt cc open at that time.

Does anyone know the minimum credit score required for this card? Is 690 doable?

They do not count. I asked.

It finally came in on July 17 after approval on July 4. The card is so flimsy and thin. They could've made the card a little thicker given that it does have a $95 annual fee.

I like the flimsy/thin aspect. Less bulk in my wallet.

Just got this card past week. I was thinking if there's a way to double-dip miles and Hyatt points for two different programs using this card. For example, I was going to book and pay for my hotel at AmericanAirlines hotels website to get an extra bonus. Would I still be able to get 9 points per $1 as a Hyatt member and the card owner on that transaction?

Not likely. Last I knew, the 5 points per dollar for WoH members is only for direct bookings.

You don't want to do that. Unless you really value your AA miles.

Paying through AA.com, (not hyatt) so you do not get the 4 points/$1 for card spend, just 2 point/$1 (Airline, but depending on how it processes, it could be just 1/$1 since this isn't "flights purchased directly from the airline").
This is not through Hyatt, so you do not get the 5 points/$1 as a Hyatt member. Through consolidators/airlines/OTAs do not count as an eligible night.
This is not through Hyatt, so you will not get night credit or stay credit.

If there is one thing I've learned on FT, it is that some people really care about the composition and feel of the credit cards.

I am just glad it isn't dark grey anymore, much easier to see against my dark wallet and other dark-grey ccs.

I have had the old Hyatt card for almost 7 years now. I spend around $25k on this card every year. Iím now thinking about canceling and applying for the new card and was wondering how this strategy sounds:
AF should hit around 8/1 and anniversary award will post around the same time.
Plan to call them to ask for a retention bonus once it hits my account (Iíve received a statement credit / bonus points the last several years)
Plan to use Anniversary award night on a stay in mid August
Cancel card within x days to have AF refunded
Wait 30 days and apply for new card

that should work, right?

Help me understand something about the second cat 1-4 cert. The amount you have to spend to get the second cert is $15,000. Let's say you spend that in the bonus categories. So you would get 30,000 WOH points as well as a certificate worth (max) 15,000. But if you put the same spend on the Chase Sapphire Reserve you get 45,000 Ultimate Reward points which can be transferred to Hyatt (or spent on on travel worth $675). Isn't that a wash (or even a point in favor of using the CSR)?

Or are people looking at this mainly for unbonused spend? In other words (especially for those of us who don't have unlimited income to put through credit cards) might this be a decent replacement for the SPG Amex since for the first $15K of regular spend you're essentially getting 2 Hyatt points per Dollar (i.e. 15K points plus a cert worth 15K)? Which isn't a bad deal.

Anyway, trying to understand the possibilities (and to find a replacement for everyday/unbonused/non-bonus spend that I have been heretofore putting on the SPG Amex. Normally a 2% cashback card would be good but we are overseas 75% of the year, so a forex fee free card like the WOH Visa is important.

I have often thought using the Chase Sapphire card with Ultimate Rewards was a better deal solely because the UR points are way more flexible. You can transfer to Hyatt at 1:1 or use for many other loyalty programs. So from a flexibility standpoint UR points win. I also get 5x UR on certain business category spend. However, with the new WoH card they are changing my thinking due to being able to earn stay credit toward Globalist for a certain amount of spend. Depending on how much you travel every year, this could have a big benefit for you to maintain status and is unique to the WoH card. That, and the free Cat 1-4 award every year and another at 15K spend will make it my primary card going forward.

Your 'bonus' categories you speak of that are in the 2x category on WoH and 3x on the CSR is just travel and dining right? And you can't include Hyatt stays because that gets 4x on the new card. To me, we aren't talking about all that much significant spend in the 2x WoH/3x CSR in the grand scheme of things (non Hyatt 'travel' costs and restaurants is probably at best ~10% of my spending).

For me, putting all my Hyatt purchases on the WoH card will get me to the 15K spend needed as is. I have used my Hyatt card in non-bonus categories a lot during the last year, but now that my valuable >2 cent/pt redemptions aren't really outpacing my natural Hyatt pt earning, I have put most of my non bonus spend on a 2% cash back.
