Thanks for the data point. Old card has been on auto-pay for years (they decide when and how much I pay). I'll go in there and pay it off right now, to see if that alters the story! Thanks again.

How long after you converted did the 5 elite nights post? I converted the card about two weeks ago, got new cards about one week ago, but still no elite nights or 2000 bonus points. Sound normal? No hurry, just want to know if I need to make a phone call. Thx!

I had a statement close with no bonus points for the conversion. But there was no annual fee on it either.

I'd guess that I need the next statement to close with the fee for me to get my 2k points.

Based on my experience and what I can gather from others, the 5 elite nights should post sometime a week or two after the conversion. I would wait another week before really worrying about it. On Hyatt.com and the app, the line item for the activity is very generic (just says "Reward bonus" and says nothing about elite qualifying credit, but the number of nights you have should go up by 5.) It would be easy to miss if you don't obsess about the changes in your account activity.

My 2,000 bonus points posted with my monthly statement for the month in which the conversion was performed (it is shown on the pts box on the statement as its own line item). I wouldn't expect anyone to experience otherwise.

You can always call, the problem is always that Hyatt says things could "take 4-6 weeks" to post and blow you off.

Actually, I didn't get charged the annual fee either, but I did get the bonus points. I did get a credit for the prorated annual fee for the last card too.

My statement had the following:

WORLD OF HYATT CREDIT CARD SUMMARY
+ Points transferred from other products 1,030 (this was the points earned under the old card rules after the last statement, prior to conversion)
+ 4X Bonus Points earned on Hyatt purchases 704
+ 2X Bonus Points at restaurants 0
+ 2X Bonus Points on airline purchases 0
+ 2X Bonus Points on Local Transit 4
+ 2X Bonus Points on Fitness Centers & Gyms 0
+ Bonus Points earned on everyday spend -53 (I had a return processed on an everday spend item
+ Additional bonus points earned 2,000 (the bonus)

Total pts transferred to World of Hyatt 3,685

Interesting. Maybe I'm not getting the 2K. My statement closed 7/6. Was yours after that?

My product switch was 7/5, my statement closed 7/20. Maybe your statement was too soon after the product switch??

That's what I'm thinking. But either way, the new product is so much better, if I lose 2k points on it, I'll still be fine. I hate to make waves with Chase unless it's pretty important.

Mark, just to be clear: did you product change, or did you cancel your legacy Hyatt CC (and wait a few days), then apply for the new World of Hyatt CC?

And for those who haven't gotten the 5 elite nights, I applied / was approved on 7/3, still no elite nights. Have talked to Chase via SM and Twitter, got same response "up to 8 weeks for the nights to post".

My product change was 6/28.
My 5 elite nights posted 6/29.

I still haven't hit a statement close date. I've spent about $8K on the card so far since the product change, but not bonus nights from spend yet.

After some effort, as you may see way upthread, I did a straight product change.

That is the same day I was approved and I did get an email from Chase stating that there had been a problem linking my account. They manually upgraded my account to Discoverist, but I just emailed them today about the 5 nights and they are investigating. So, a secure message to Chase may be in order. Hyatt doesn't seem to be able to rectify it on their end, but they were able to confirm that the credit card is not linked to my account.

Has anyone who had the old Hyatt CC that cancelled and opened the new card gotten their spend bonus yet? Approaching 1 mo so figuring some spenders have to have some experience now.

Also, I got my FN from my card anniversary in mid April. Haven't redeemed it yet. For those that are close to their anniversary date I can understand waiting til they get the anniversary night. For me, it makes no sense to wait 9 months to forgo the additional benefits. So, my questions are:

1. I presume that if I cancel the old card, the FN in my WOH account is still good and won't be taken away?
2. Will I get a prorated refund on my AF if I cancel? So if my AF was assessed in April, I presume I can get about 75% of that back?
3. Tips on closing my account: I am currently using my CC still pretty actively (staying at Hyatt's weekly). Say I stop spending maybe 1 week before statement close and pay the balance in advance of the statement close (so balance is $0 on last statement). Seems like I can close on statement date and maybe only wait 3-5 days?

Not sure if this link has already been posted, but it looks like you can upgrade and get your 2,000 points online:
