Hyatt enthusiasts should consider the World of Hyatt Credit Card from Chase. You can earn a generous bonus within the first few months of account opening, and World of Hyatt points are generally worth more than other hotel loyalty points in other programs.
Rewards: Earn 4 World of Hyatt points per dollar spent on Hyatt stays and experiences, 2 points per dollar on transit and commuting, dining, flights purchased from airlines, fitness club and gym memberships, and 1 point per dollar on all other purchases.
Welcome Offer: Earn up to 10 free nights at category 1 hotels. Earn 25,000 Bonus Points after you spend $3,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening. Plus, 25,000 Bonus Points after you spend $6,000 total within 6 months of account opening
Annual Fee: $95
Benefits and Drawbacks: The World of Hyatt Credit Card from Chase offers rewards good for Hyatt stays around the globe, and free nights start at just 5,000 points. With that in mind, the welcome offer on this card could be worth up to ten free nights at the lowest tier Hyatt property. Even the most expensive hotels are only 30,000 points per night, which is much less than other programs.
You’ll earn 9 points per dollar on Hyatt stays with this card—4 points per dollar for paying with your credit card and 5 points per dollar for being a World of Hyatt loyalty member. For a limited time, you’ll also receive 10 qualifying night credits toward elite status upon accounting opening, and 5 elite night credits each year you renew your card.
Another cardholder benefit to look forward to is a free weekend night at a category 1 to 4 property on your cardmember anniversary, plus the potential to earn another free weekend night when you spend $15,000 on your card within a calendar year. There is a $95 annual fee, but it’s easy to see how you could get significant value out of the points you earn.
