While the new World of Hyatt Credit Card offers perks that certainly make it worth keeping around, including a free Category 1-4 night certificate each year, Discoverist status and 4 points per dollar spent at Hyatt hotels, it isn't the most rewarding option for everyday purchases. Hyatt's hoping to change that — for the rest of this year, at least.
The chain is offering a $25 credit in November and December ($50 total) when you spend $500 or more in combined purchases on internet, cable and phone services; shipping; grocery stores and movie theaters each month. Assuming you spend exactly $500, you'll get 5% cash back, in addition to the 500 points you'll earn on these purchases — worth $9 based on our valuations. In total, you're looking at a $34 value, including points and statement credits, a 6.8% return.
You won't do better than that at movie theaters, on phone expenses or shipping purchases, but two cards get you a greater return on groceries, including The Amex EveryDay® Preferred Credit Card from American Express and the American Express® Gold Card.
