World of Hyatt Credit Card benefit details and notes

Anniversary Free Night Award (Category 1-4)
  • Issued 10 weeks after cardmember anniversary date
  • Expires 1 year after issuance
  • Ineligible for use with Club Lounge Access Awards and Complimentary Suite Upgrade Awards
Additional Free Night Award (Category 1-4) with $15k spend
  • The spend counter for this benefit tracks total cumulative purchases (excluding $95 annual fee and any other non-qualifying transactions) during cardmember year. This spend counter resets every cardmember anniversary date. Chase does not make this spend counter visible to customers, so interested customers must calculate their own. Note that this is a separate spend counter from the "Two Additional Night Credits" counter referenced below.
  • Issued 1-2 days after statement closing date of the triggering transaction (the transaction causing the spend counter to cross $15k)
  • Expires 1 year after issuance
  • Ineligible for use with Club Lounge Access Awards and Complimentary Suite Upgrade Awards
  • Cardmembers are eligible for only 1 additional Free Night Award per cardmember year (e.g., spending $30k does not result in a second Free Night Award)
Two Additional Night Credits with every $5k spend
  • The spend counter for this benefit tracks total cumulative purchases (excluding $95 annual fee and any other non-qualifying transactions) since account opening. This spend counter never resets. Chase does not make this spend counter visible to customers, so interested customers must calculate their own. Note that this is a separate spend counter from the "Additional Free Night Award" counter referenced above.
  • Issued 1-2 days after statement closing date of the triggering transaction (the transaction causing the spend counter to cross a multiple of $5k)
  • For World of Hyatt status qualification purposes, the night credits are associated with the posting date and therefore status year of the triggering transaction. This is relevant for December transactions that fall in billing cycles ending in January

Other notes and tips

Chase spending tracker
  • The Chase spending tracker is useful for calculating your spend counter for the $15k Additional Free Night Award and your spend counter for the Two Additional Night Credits
  • Chase mobile app: "View all transactions", then switch to the "Spending Summary" tab
  • Chase website: From the account page, in the "Things you can do" menu, choose "Spending Summary"
  • Remember to add spend from prior calendar year(s) as needed (see spend counter notes above), and to subtract $95 annual fee and any other non-qualifying transactions from all years
  • Full list of non-qualifying transactions: returns, refunds, balance transfers, cash advances, travelers checks, foreign currency, money orders, wire transfers or similar cash-like transactions, lottery tickets, casino gaming chips, race track wagers or similar betting transactions, any checks that access your account, interest, unauthorized or fraudulent charges, and fees of any kind, including an annual fee

The OP is not currently a Glob. If he was, he would have re-qualified already as he has 58 nights to date.

If there is something in the T&Cs or other formal agreement that states when the nights are credited, I'd agree it should be relatively straight forward to get them properly credited if there is an error. I'm not aware of anything that states when the nights are credited, though. I've had enough hassles with Hyatt in the past trying to get them to do the right thing when the terms were clearly spelled out. "Blowing" a relatively small sum to avoid a situation where there are no explicit statements and trying to convince someone at Hyatt to do something is well worth it to me. Besides, it gets me a tiny step closer to LTG :-)

I am Globalist through a company match, but I do not have an assigned concierge as it wasn't 'earned'.

Per the card terms and conditions (here):

World of Hyatt Tier-Qualifying Night credits will be credited to the calendar year in which the spend occurred.

And OMAAT:

Hyatt says that it can take up to eight weeks from the last day of the calendar month when you qualify for three credits to be added to your World of Hyatt account. However, while they may post with a delay, they should count towards your status in the same calendar year in which you complete the spend (in other words, if you spend $5,000 in November 2018 and the credits only post in January 2019, they’d still count towards your 2018 status).

I'm going to roll the dice and will report back in January.

I'd be relatively confident since it worked that way last year. But at the same time, in your situation I'd still try to move up my statement date just in case. And get that spend done of course.

Chase said they can't move up the statement date for the next statement - it would only be in effect for the following (February). So, not much I can do other than:

1. Take a risk (and hit the spend)
2. Do a mattress run

Going to go with #1 - the T&C are clear and I'd be willing to fight it if need be, and I think I'd have a good shot. Thanks all!

It does also say this:

Please allow up to 8 weeks from the last day of the calendar month when you qualify, for World of Hyatt Tier-Qualifying Night credits to be added to your World of Hyatt account.

So be prepared to wait the end of February.

Also as a DP I changed my WOH CC Statement date and I thought it would take place next billing cycle, but it changed in the billing cycle that I changed it in. So I would make the change, the worst case is you have a different date for future cycles. I just did the request online.

I had a similar experience, where Chase Rep says can take 6-8 weeks (1-2 statements) to reflect new date, but sometimes happens faster, i don't see any harm in trying that just in case

I wouldn't fool around with it. Sometimes with Chase, the new date doesn't take effect until the next month, which could mean an unwanted late-January closing date. I've had six-week statement periods with Chase after changing closing dates.

In the WN forum, people have been trying for years to manipulate WN Chase CC statement dates because of the desired timing of getting the Companion Pass, either sooner or later.

All kinds of weird things have been reported. Long statement periods, short, extra, immediate, delays, etc.

Im wondering any recent DPs on how long it takes the anniversary night to be added to WOH account?

I know it says 10 weeks, but it also says points from spend can take 8 weeks to be added, but theyre typically added much sooner. Just seeing from people who have had the card for over a year how long after their Annual fee was assessed that the Free Night posted.

Thanks!

Eight weeks to the day? Really strange because Ive read on other forums of people having it post in less than 30 days which is why I was asking for DataPoints.

Chase cracked down on people getting the free night within the cancellation window about a year ago. Most people now get it around eight weeks after the anniversary date.

Not sure if it's to the day, but it's definitely issued after the next statement closes, for the reasons joe_miami mentioned.

It's not safe to count on anything being issued on an exact date if that's what you're after.

So I spent $51k on my last statement and got the 51k points posted to my account but only 14 nights instead of the 20 I was expecting to get to Globalist.

Have this happen to any of you before? I did the same last year and all 20 night credits posted correctly. Now I am 6 nights short of Globalist with only 15 days left...
