It has been a LONG time since we’ve seen new Hyatt Credit Card offers. So any increase is a good thing. World of Hyatt points are a huge part of our credit card points and miles game because of the outsized value we get from them. There are so many reasons we love the World of Hyatt credit cards. We often use our Chase Ultimate Rewards to transfer to Hyatt, however it is nice to just earn them outright, too.
Additionally, if you are going for Hyatt Globalist status, you can earn five elite night credits just for holding the Hyatt personal card. That alone makes it a no-brainer for those of us that consistently seek that status. Holding the Hyatt business card also makes sense for us as we get 5 elite nights for every $10,000 we spend on the card (I use it for paying estimated taxes each quarter).
Another reason we love our Hyatt personal card is the annual free night certificate we earn each cardmember anniversary year. I have used that certificate to stay at hotels that cost as much as $200+/night making that $95 annual fee worth paying year after year. Here’s more information on using that annual free night certificate.
The World of Hyatt Business Card has an increased offer of 60,000 World of Hyatt points, plus you get an additional 15,000 points for spending $12,000 in 6 months. The minimum spend is $5,000 in the first 3 months. This limited time offer ends March 6, 2024. This offer might make sense for someone who has large business expenses or needs to pay estimated taxes.
The World of Hyatt Card (personal) finally has an increased offer of 35,000 points (vs the standard 30,000-point offer) after a minimum spend of $3,000 in the first 3 months. You can earn an additional 30,000 points by earning 2 bonus points per $1 spent on purchases in 6 months or up to a maximum of $15,000. While I probably wouldn’t go after that second tier, it is nice to earn a little more on the sign-up bonus.
The new Hyatt credit card offers are NOT huge changes. It has been so long since we have seen an increase on them (especially on the personal card), that we will take what we can get. We each hold both of these cards and find value in them, despite the somewhat mediocre sign-up bonus that is offered by the personal card. What are your thoughts on these new offers?
