What’s happening to your World of Hyatt hotel loyalty status when you can’t travel? There are several World of Hyatt promos you can enjoy this spring including exclusive offers for co-brand Hyatt credit card members. It’s possible to earn a higher status while you stay at home.
World of Hyatt Promos
Even though we aren’t able to travel at the moment, there are several ways Hyatt is working to help those with loyalty status (or people who would like to earn loyalty status). Here are several ways World of Hyatt promos can help.
Bonus Hyatt Qualifying Night Credits
Members of the World of Hyatt Credit Card and the Hyatt Credit Card (no longer open to new applicants) can earn more qualifying night credits than usual. This promo lasts from April 15, 2020, to June 30, 2020.
How many credits you can earn for every $5,000 in card spend depends on which card you have:
- World of Hyatt Credit Card: 3 qualifying night credits per $5,000 in total card purchases
- Hyatt Credit Card: 2 qualifying night credits per $5,000 in total card purchases
The World of Hyatt Credit Card reverts back to 2 credits per $5,000 in spend after this promotion ends.
Earning 30 elite night credits in a calendar year upgrades you to World of Hyatt Explorist status.
Limited-Time World of Hyatt Credit Card Signup Bonus
Starting April 15, 2020, the World of Hyatt Credit Card (one of our favorite hotel credit cards) has a limited-time signup bonus to earn a total of 10 qualifying night credits when you apply by June 30, 2020. This can help you earn Hyatt elite status sooner. You’ll also get 5 qualifying night credits every year thereafter. The standard benefit is only 5 qualifying night credits that you receive upon application approval and each card anniversary.
You can also earn up to 50,000 bonus Hyatt points worth up to 10 free nights at Category 1 hotels. Get the first 25,000 World of Hyatt points by spending $3,000 in the first 3 months. Spending a total of $6,000 in the first 6 months gives you the remaining 25,000 bonus Hyatt points.
New cardholders also earn 2 additional qualifying night credits toward your next tier status every time you spend $5,000 on your card. Note that free nights start at 5,000 points. World of Hyatt promos can get you plenty of rewards.
The Chase World of Hyatt Credit Card cardholders also earn:
- 9 points total for Hyatt stays (4 points per $1 spent at Hyatt hotels plus 5 points per $1 you can earn as a World of Hyatt member)
- 2 points per $1 spent at:
- restaurants, cafes, and coffee shops
- airline tickets purchased directly from the airline
- local transit and commuting (including taxis, mass transit, tolls, and ride-share services)
- fitness club and gym memberships
- 1 point per $1 on all other purchases
This bonus offer is for new applicants. Previous members of any Hyatt credit card can qualify for this offer if it’s been at least 24 months since they last received a Hyatt signup bonus.
