Hyatt And Chase Team Up To Offer Big Rewards To Frequent Travelers
20 Jul
A new credit card from Hyatt Hotels Corporation and Chase Card Services will offer members 9 bonus points per dollar spent at Hyatt, double bonus points at restaurants and on eligible airline ticket purchases, double points at fitness clubs, and double points on local transit and ride sharing services. All other purchases will earn one point per dollar spent.

The World of Hyatt credit card, which will have a $95 annual fee, is aimed at travelers who frequently stay at Hyatt properties, as well as dine out, use gym memberships, and pay for commuter travel.

“This new card offers more ways for cardmembers to enjoy bonus points, free nights, and elite status, including a new bonus points category focused on rewarding members for staying healthy, which demonstrates our commitment to caring for our guests’ well-being,” said Amy Weinberg, senior vice president at World of Hyatt.

Benefits of the card

World of Hyatt benefits include the aforementioned 9 points per dollar spent on Hyatt stays and experiences, 2 points per dollar spent at restaurants and on airline tickets bought directly from the airline, gym memberships, local transit, and ride share services, and 1 point per dollar everywhere else.

The 9 points per dollar are calculated as follows: 4 points per dollar spent at Hyatt hotels and resorts and 5 points per dollar spent as a World of Hyatt member.

Points do not expire as long as the account is open and in good standing, and there are no foreign transaction fees when members use the card internationally.

Elite status and free nights

Other perks include one free night on the anniversary of getting the card, at any category 1-4 Hyatt hotel or resort, and another free night when you spend $15,000 or more on the card in one year. Folks also get automatic elite status in World of Hyatt (Discoverist status), five qualifying night credits each year, and two qualifying night credits for every $5,000 spent on the card.

“We remain focused on deepening our relationship with our members by caring for them across more dimensions of their lives,” said Weinberg. “We’ve continued to listen to our members and tailored our credit card program to reflect those aspects that are most important to them.”
