Hyatt Credit Card – 2 Free Nights Anywhere

Although this promotion came out last Fall prior to me starting this blog, it is a decent credit card offer, so I figured I’d include it in my travel site. Last fall Hyatt Hotels partnered with Chase to offer a new credit card offering 2 free nights for new card members. Prior to this there was no Hyatt Hotel credit card, so this is definitely a great advantage for Hyatt loyal customers (unfortunately it came out right after I ended my two years staying at primarily Hyatt hotels!). This card comes with a $75 annual fee (although waived the first year) and high APR’s (like most mile/point earning credit cards). Click here to open a Hyatt credit card.

Benefits of the Hyatt credit card:

  • Automatic Platinum status (15% bonus points per stay, potential upgrades, and more)
  • 3 Hyatt Gold Passport points for every $1 spent with your Hyatt Card at all Hyatt properties
  • 2 Hyatt Gold Passport points for every $1 spent on airfare and at restaurants
  • 1 Hyatt Gold Passport point for every $1 spent on purchases elsewhere
  • No limit to the number of the points you can earn (which some other hotel/airline cards have)

2 Night Free Terms & Conditions:

  • Two free nights after you spend $1,000 in the first three months
  • Free night awards are valid for use on any available standard room at any Hyatt hotel or resort worldwide
  • Free nights expire one year from hitting your account
  • Free night awards are not transferable
  • Free nights will post to your account within 10 days of meeting the minimum spend requirement

After staying at Hyatt’s quite often for the past two years, it has become my favorite hotel chain and points program. With Hyatt you earn 5 points/$1 spent on hotel rooms. To redeem at a top-notch hotel you will need to use 30,000 points, although there are many great hotels at the 15,000 point level. The earning/redemption ratio is MUCH better than Hilton, Marriott, and Starwood. However, Hyatt does not have nearly as many hotels as the other hotel chains, especially globally. Additionally, Hyatt has the best customer service I have found thus far and their promotions are great!

Since the promotion is two free nights, the best redemption is using them at expensive hotels, such as: Park Hyatt Vendome, Park Hyatt Tokyo, Park Hyatt Beaver Creek. Currently, my favorite Hyatt hotel is the Grand Hyatt Kauai.

  1. Thanks for the info! Could you elaborate a little more on why the Grand Hyatt Kauai is your favorite Hyatt hotel? How is it better than the Hyatt Regency Maui? I’m trying to decide between the two for an upcoming Hawaii trip. Thank you!! 🙂

    • @ Jenny – I have not been to the Hyatt Regency Maui, but have heard mixed reviews. From what I hear I think it is starting to show its age (again, that is what I have heard from others). I though the Grand Hyatt Kauai was absolutely beautiful, with amazing pools (including a lagoon pool) and unbelievable grounds. For me personally, I would stay at the hotel based on the island you want to go to. Maui and Kauai are very different. The hotel in Maui is on long strip of beach front, hotel after hotel. Kauai is more untouched and not as built up.

      Anyone else have any reviews?!

  2. Thanks…this sounds awesome! Just got the Chase Marriott card in May and I also have an older Chase BA Visa. Is it too early to try for this one? Credit scores in the upper 700’s and utilization 4%. Just found your site and love it, thanks again!

    • @Anna – It is probably not to early. You should be fine, but Chase might require you to move some credit around between the other two cards. Let me know how it goes!
