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 during the current calendar year (excluding $95 annual fee and any other non-qualifying transactions).
  • The spend counter for this benefit resets at the beginning of every calendar year. 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" spend counter 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 calendar year (e.g., spending $30k does not result in two Additional Free Night Awards
Two Additional Night Credits with every $5k spend
  • The spend counter for this benefit tracks total cumulative purchases since account opening (excluding $95 annual fee and any other non-qualifying transactions)
  • 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" spend counter 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 TRANSACTION date of the triggering transaction, not the posting date and not the statement closing date. For example, triggering transactions on 12/31/2022 (transaction date) will result in 2 night credits for the 2022 status year, regardless of posting date or statement closing date. Based on FT reports, transaction date appears to be based on the US Eastern Time Zone.
  • World of Hyatt Credit Card: timing for $5k spend 2 qualifying nights
Other Benefits
  • 4 Bonus Points per $1 spent on purchases at Hyatt hotels
  • 2 Bonus Points per $1 spent on restaurants, airline tickets purchased directly from the airline, local transit and commuting, and fitness club and gym memberships
  • 1 Bonus Point per $1 spent on all other purchases
  • Discoverist status every year
  • 5 qualifying night credits every year
  • No foreign transaction fees
  • Travel & purchase coverage

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 main page, on the right hand side, click the "Spending & Budgeting" menu, then 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

Looks like current sign-up offer is $350 in Hyatt credits applied to the card for 12 months from account opening plus 5k points after 1500 in spend within 3 months.

Generally you can find an offer like this as well as the standard 30K+30K offer, looks like that's still the case. The straight miles vs. the $350 + 5K imo is a much better deal even with the lower spend requirement.

Hello -

My apologies if this does not belong in this thread.

I hit the 15K spend my last cycle and received a free 1-4 night. If I get to 30K in spend before the end of the year, will I get another cert? Or is it just 1/year?

Also, contrary to the wiki, the expiration is 6 months, not one year.

Thanks in advance.

One per year.

Mine is definitely one year and has always been one year. Could you have the Chase $15K spend certificate mixed up with the Hyatt 30 night certificate?

HI - Many thanks on the free night question. Guess it is time to put the card away except for Hyatt stays.

And yes, as for the duration validity, I stand corrected. I did indeed mix them up.

Many thanks.

Hopefully stupid question: am I right to think that closing the card doesn't result in the annual free night disappearing from my Hyatt account, if I haven't used it yet this year?

That’s the exact procedure followed by many advocates of Hyatt cards, both personal and biz. And occasionally in years past, when Chase has a generous bonus offer on the card (people will put other spend on the card). There are a minority of people who put large amounts of unbonused spend on Hyatt cards in order to achieve other goals such as additional Tier Qualifying Nights and/or elite status.

Correct. Similar to many credit cards, once transferred to a partner or affiliated program, almost all perks and benefits will remain open and valid upon closing the credit card account, be it points or miles or a free night award or a qualifying night or upgrade award.

That's great - thank you very much for confirming.

I am a bit confused on how bonus points are awarded. Do they only deposit the points after you pay the balance? I paid a balance on 6/14 and still have not received any points. I called Chase and they said the bonus points are rewarded after the "spent cycle", not when you paid the balance. Not sure what that means. Any insight will be appreciated.

Points being deposited into your Hyatt account have nothing to do with when you pay, assuming your account isn't delinquent. They are typically deposited within 2 days of the statement closing date.

If yours haven't been deposited, check to be sure you gave Chase the correct Hyatt number when you signed up.

Depends on which bonus points, but the ones Chase awards for normal Hyatt spend on their credit card should be posting with the normal points that post shortly after the close of the billing cycle.

The bonus points for an elite members stay should post when the stay posts to their account.

Other property specific or promotional bonuses might have a longer lag before posting. Typically the T&Cs on the promo will tell you that the points will post X weeks after the end of the promo or something like that. But sometimes they post a lot faster than that. You will see a lot of questions here about unknown bonuses that somebody got and can't remember what it was for. Some of the bonuses that are night or stay based might post with the stay.

when does "Free Night" from new Hyatt Card kick in?

So I got an inducement to sign up for a Hyatt Card form Chase. I believe I paid a $95 initial fee. Was last Feb or March. It appeared to me that there was a "free night" as part of the deal, seemingly once a year,
I inquired about using it in this June and was told, no dice, too soon. I couldn't figure out when, if ever, such a benefit was to accrue. Called the 800 number and asked. They told me it would take a whole year. Somehow that contingency escaped me. My inquiry is: Is it truly an entire year before the free night benefit accrues? I remember having the card some years ago and receiving the "free night" without a whole year transpiring.
My life doesn't live or die on such a free night. But if it truly takes an entire year, I'm not confident that even that will come true. Having doubts. Anybody know. Made a call to a rep on the phone, who seemed poorly versed in what is going on. Also, if I were better at looking for fine print, I wouldn't have done the deal if it were contingent on waiting a whole year.

Thanks

You get it with each renewal. So yes. About 14 months after you apply.

It's right there on the card's application page:

"1 FREE NIGHT EVERY YEAR"Receive one free night at any Category 1-4 Hyatt hotel or resort every year after your cardmember anniversary."

(Emphasis added.)
