If you have a Hyatt credit card in your wallet and an upcoming stay at a Small Luxury Hotels of the World property, listen up. The World of Hyatt Credit Card now offers 4x points per dollar spent at participating SLH locations, as announced by the hotel chain on July 18. And if you have the old Hyatt credit card (no longer available to new applicants), you’ll now earn 3x points per dollar spent at SLH locations. These new offers don’t require registration; all you have to do is swipe your eligible card to pay for the stay.

Some of the 200+ hotels you can spend those points include the Bay of Many Coves in New Zealand and Tokyo’s Station Hotel. You can check out our full list of these properties from integrations in November, January, February and May.

If you’re considering adding the World of Hyatt Credit Card to your wallet, it’s currently offering a sign-up bonus of up to 60,000 bonus points: earn 30,000 bonus points after spending $3,000 on purchases within the first three months from account opening. Plus, up to 30,000 more bonus points by earning 2x bonus points total on purchases that normally earn 1x bonus point, on up to $15,000 in the first six months of account opening. 60,000 Hyatt points are worth $1,020 according to TPG’s most recent valuations.

You won’t be eligible to earn those bonus points if you’ve received a Hyatt sign-up bonus within the past 24 months. It’s also worth noting that if you have the old Hyatt Credit Card, you’ll need to cancel it and apply for the World of Hyatt card in order to earn the bonus.

Redemptions for standard rooms with Hyatt-branded properties start at 5,000 points per night at Category 1 hotels (such as Hyatt Place Los Cabos) and climb as high as 40,000 per night at Category 8 hotels (for example, Japan’s Kasara Niseko Village). You also have the option to pay for awards half in points and half in cash — though this award was devalued last fall.
