World of Hyatt announces 3 new promotions — and you can stack them with existing offers
This post contains references to products from one or more of our advertisers. We may receive compensation when you click on links to those products. Terms apply to the offers listed on this page. For an explanation of our Advertising Policy, visit this page.
If you have any upcoming Hyatt stays or plan on spending this holiday season, be sure to register for World of Hyatt’s array of new promotions.
For starters, you may be able to take home over 25 Hyatt points for every dollar you spend with future Hyatt stays. And earlier this fall, the program announced an extension to a popular, previously-announced offer for redeeming Hyatt points.
Additionally, legacy Hyatt cardholders and those that have The World of Hyatt Credit Card can take advantage of an exclusive discount at select independent collection brands, ways to earn extra points on everyday purchases and a new way to earn a free-night certificate (for legacy Hyatt cardholders only). Let’s dive in.

Save extra at Hyatt’s Independent Collection brands
From Nov. 1, 2020 through March 31, 2021, World of Hyatt and Hyatt Credit cardmembers can receive a $75 statement credit when they spend $250 or more on their card at a participating hotel, resort or residence in the U.S. in Hyatt’s independent collection brands.
Those brands include The Unbound Collection by Hyatt, Destination Hotels and Residences and Joie de Vivre Hotels.
Earn bonus points on everyday purchases with a Hyatt card
As previously announced, many Chase cards have been targeted to receive up to 5x bonus points on purchases at Amazon and at grocery stores from Nov. 1 through Dec. 31, 2020.
With the existing World of Hyatt credit card and legacy Hyatt credit card, you can earn 5x points for every dollar spent on Amazon and 3x points for every dollar spent at grocery stores on up to $1,500 in total combined purchases each month. That’s 2 or 4 extra points that cardmembers can earn for these purchases.
To qualify, you must register by Dec. 31, 2020 at this Chase landing page.
Legacy Hyatt credit cardholders can earn a free night
If you have a legacy Hyatt credit card (no longer issued to new applicants and not to be confused with the World of Hyatt credit card), there’s an additional offer for you.
From Nov. 1 through Dec. 31, 2020, those cardholders can receive a free night at any Category 1-4 Hyatt hotel after spending $4,000 on the card. That’s on top of the free night you’ll receive on your cardmember anniversary. You must register by November 30 at this link.
Stack with the existing Bonus Journeys promotion
The best part? You can stack these new promotions with the existing Bonus Journeys promo. Earn 3x points (up to 150,000 World of Hyatt points total) on paid stays at all Hyatt locations worldwide, including participating M life Rewards, Small Luxury Hotels of the World properties and Lindblad Expeditions. World of Hyatt Credit Card holders (and those with the legacy Hyatt credit card) can earn 4x points on resort stays, up to 75,000 points.
You can register for the promo here.
In addition, this promotion includes an offer for bonus elite-night credits. For every tier-qualifying night you complete during the promotion dates, you’ll earn a night toward both 2020 and 2021 World of Hyatt elite status. This gives you a head start on earning status for next year.
It appears that all Hyatt resorts are included in the promotion, at which you’ll earn 4x points if you’re a cardholder. You can find the list of Hyatt resorts around the world here.
The promotion runs for stays with a checkout date through Jan 4, 2021, but you must register by Nov. 30, 2020.
As TPG’s Richard Kerr noted when this promotion launched, you can earn a massive return on your Hyatt stays through Bonus Journeys. Depending on your elite status tier and the credit card you use, you could earn up to 25x points for every dollar you spend.
Doing some quick math, a Globalist who has the World of Hyatt Credit Card staying at a participating (4x) resort during the promotion period would earn:
- 20x for quadruple points (4 x 5 points/$ base rate)
- 4x for spending on credit card (or 3x for old Hyatt card)
- 1.5x for Globalist bonus (base 5 points/$ x 30% bonus)
TOTAL: 25.5x for Globalists
25.5x World of Hyatt points per dollar spent is an astounding number of points to earn on a paid stay. TPG values World of Hyatt points at 1.7 cents each, meaning a Globalist credit card holder would earn 43 cents back in points on each dollar spent on the stay.
Don’t forget the points rebate and free parking offer too
All World of Hyatt members who register and book award nights between now and Jan. 4, 2021, will get 15% of their points back and free parking. This promotion applies to award stays across all Hyatt brands, including core brands like Park Hyatt and Hyatt Regency, as well as participating SLH and MGM properties.
World of Hyatt Credit cardholders’ rebate is increased to 25%.
To take advantage of this offer, you’ll need to register by Dec. 1, 2020. Then simply redeem your points and you’ll get 15-25% of your points back within 6-8 weeks.
There are two separate registration links, so be sure to use the one that applies to you:
Earn 3x points on local dining
You can earn 3x points per dollar spent on dining at participating hotel restaurants from now through Jan. 4, 2021. This applies to non-stay charges for restaurant spending at participating Hyatt hotels.
Just provide your World of Hyatt number and pay with a credit card that offers bonus points on dining. You’ll earn bonus points with your credit card and through the World of Hyatt program. If you use a Hyatt credit card, you’ll get an additional 2 points per dollar spent.
You can learn more about which Hyatt restaurants are participating in this promotion by visiting Hyatt.com/dinelocal.
