If you’re a World of Hyatt cardmember and planning stays soon, listen up because you could earn a nice statement credit.
Here’s what you need to know.
Cardmembers who spend a total of $300 or more at Hyatt Place or Hyatt House hotels in the U.S. and Canada on The World of Hyatt Credit Card or Hyatt Credit Card (no longer available to new applicants) can earn a $50 statement credit on their Chase account.
You must register for the promotion between Oct. 1 and Nov. 30 and stay between Oct. 1 and Jan. 5, 2020 in order to qualify for the statement credit. One $50 statement credit can be earned per cardholder within the promotional period.
Spending a total of $300 shouldn’t be too hard to do. There are dozens of Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotels in the U.S. and Canada to choose from and — aside from the statement credit — you can earn points on all Hyatt hotel stays booked directly through Hyatt’s website.
For instance, a weekend stay in late October at the Hyatt Place Midtown in New York City will set you back $272 a night plus taxes, easily meeting the threshold for the promotion.
Lots of Hyatt Place and Hyatt House properties are very affordable. For example, a four-night stay at the Hyatt Place in Edmonton, Canada, is just $95 a night in early November.
The World of Hyatt loyalty program has evolved in the last few years, as many hotels have changed categories. Still, World of Hyatt remains one of the most valuable loyalty programs on the market. TPG values World of Hyatt points at 1.7 cents each, among the highest of hotel programs.
If you don’t want to miss out on promotions like this in the future, you might consider adding a Hyatt card to your wallet.
The World of Hyatt Credit Card currently offers a tiered sign-up bonus: 25,000 bonus points after you spend $3,000 on purchases in the first three months of account opening, and 25,000 more bonus points after spending $6,000 total on purchases in the first six months of account opening.
This isn’t the only Hyatt promotion running right now — you can also earn bonus points with Hyatt’s fall promotion, which should stack with this new offer.
Earn up to 3x points with Hyatt Bonus Journeys promotion
If you have Hyatt stays planned this fall, be sure to register for Hyatt’s new “Bonus Journeys” promotion. Depending on your Hyatt hotel brand of choice, you can earn up to 3x Hyatt points for your stay — and more than 1,000 hotels and resorts are included, including participating M life Rewards and Small Luxury Hotels of the World locations.
- Register between Sept. 9 and Oct. 31, 2019.
- Stay between Sept. 15 and Dec. 15, 2019.
- You’ll earn 3x Hyatt points on eligible spending at Hyatt Place hotels.
- You’ll earn 2x Hyatt points on eligible spending at 500+ Hyatt hotels and resorts, participating M life Rewards hotels, and participating Small Luxury Hotels of the World hotels.
- You can earn a maximum 200,000 bonus points total during the promotion period (100,000 bonus points for the Hyatt Place hotels bonus and 100,000 bonus points for the non-Hyatt Place hotels bonus)
One catch of this promotion is that it triggers after your second qualifying stay (your first qualifying stay can be with any participating Hyatt brand).
World of Hyatt members usually earn 5 base points per dollar, so this promotion gives you the opportunity to earn up to 15 points per dollar. Because TPG values Hyatt points at 1.7 cents each, that’s like getting a return of 25.5 cents per dollar.
However, it’s easy to get even more value. Remember that Hyatt award nights start at just 5,000 points. Spending just $334 will net you a free night at a Hyatt Category 1 hotel ($334 X 15).
Considering that most Hyatt hotels cost more than $100 a night, you’re almost guaranteed to get a value of 2+ cents per point with a Category 1 hotel.
