Our Review

With the World of Hyatt Credit card from Chase, you’ll earn up to 50,000 Bonus Points – 25,000 Bonus Points after you spend $3,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening. Plus an additional 25,000 Bonus Points after you spend a total of $6,000 on purchases within the first 6 months of account opening.

This card is great for Hyatt lovers–or for anyone who wants to earn hotel points for free hotel stays around the world.

You’ll earn 9 points total per $1 spent at Hyatt – 4 Bonus Points per $1 when you use your card at Hyatt hotels & 5 Base Points per $1 you can earn as a World of Hyatt member. Plus you’ll have automatic World of Hyatt Elite status for as long as you’re a cardholder.

Every year on your card member anniversary, you’ll receive an award certificate for a free night at any category 1-4 Hyatt property worldwide! This benefit alone outweighs the annual fee for the card.
