Noob Review: Hyatt Hotel Credit Card
Edit: this offer has expired
Yes, this is another Chase card…Where you at, Amex and Citi?
Here’s the deal: The Hyatt card comes with a sign-up bonus of 2 free award nights at ANY Hyatt property worldwide! I put that around a value of $1,000 if you stay at a top of the line property. You will have 1 year to use the 2 free award night certificates. Here’s some good news: there is no minimum spend to meet. Just swipe the card once and the sign-up bonus is yours, all yours. This card is also great for international travel because it has a 0% foreign transaction fee AND smart chip technology! There is an annual fee of $75, BUT you receive a free award night EVERY anniversary at a category 1-4 Hyatt property. This more than offsets the annual fee. The Hyatt card also gives you Platinum status as long as you hold the card!
Maj Perk- 2 Free Suite Upgrades
MAJOR PERK: If you have Platinum status BEFORE applying for the Hyatt card, you will get TWO suite upgrades. This is major. The suite upgrades are good for up to 7 days and must be used on paid stays. A couple weeks ago, I posted about how to get Platinum status with Hyatt for FREE for 90 days, but the promo ends May 11. That gives you a little over 3 weeks to take advantage of the deal. Tick tock. If you sign up for the free Platinum status promo, then you would have 90 days to sign up for the Hyatt card to receive the additional benefit of two free suite upgrades.
Platinum status with Hyatt gives you:
- 2pm late checkout (subject to availability at resorts)
- Free internet access
- 15% bonus on points earned from Hyatt stays
If you hold Diamond status with Hyatt then your two free certificates will be good for suites! If you already have elite status with another hotel program, you may be able to get Diamond (top tier) status for 90 days free by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. I was able to do this last month. Hyatt gives you 4 free suite upgrades on paid stays during your free Diamond trial period. Score.
I have had my eye on the Hyatt Visa for some time now; it’s going in my next set of apps fo sho. I plan on using the two free nights at the stellar Hyatt Paris- Vendome. And if the wife goes for this card, then we can get four nights or over $2,000 in value at Hyatt. Learn to love it.
