LAST CHANCE Earn 2 UNCAPPED Free Nights from Hyatt Visa

I receive compensation for content and many links on this blog. You don’t have to use these links, but I am grateful to you if you do. American Express, Citibank, Chase, Capital One and other banks are advertising partners of this site. Any opinions expressed in this post are my own, and have not been reviewed, approved, or endorsed by my advertising partners. I do not write about all credit cards that are available -- instead focusing on miles, points, and cash back (and currencies that can be converted into the same).


The Hyatt Credit Card

The signup bonus for the Hyatt Credit Card changes June 29.

  • Currently the offer is 2 free nights valid at any participating Hyatt property in the world after $2000 spend within your first 3 months of cardmembership. They also give you 5000 points after adding an authorized user and having them make their first purchase within that same time period. The $75 annual fee card also comes with an annual free night certificate valid for stays up to a category 4 property, and Discoverist status (which gets you 2 p.m. late checkout).

  • According to Hyatt the new offer will be 40,000 points after $2000 spend within your first 3 months of cardmembership.

With 2 nights valid at any Hyatt property you can use them at the Park Hyatt New York, the Park Hyatt Maldives or anywhere else you wish.

I have and keep the card, the annual free night up to category 4 is more than worth the card’s $75 annual fee. But the reason to *get* the card is the signup bonus and because Chase doesn’t limit approvals to folks with fewer than 5 new card accounts in the last 24 months (‘5/24’).

In my view you can maximize 2 free nights more than you can 40,000 points. Two people get the card and earn the signup bonus and can together earn 4 nights together at the Park Hyatt Maldives.

However there are reasons to prefer points.

  • You have to redeem free nights within a year but as long as you don’t let your account go dormant you can redeem points any time.

  • Points are more divisible. Use 40,000 for up to 8 free (category 1) nights rather than limiting you to 2 nights.

  • Points can be used for cash and points awards which count towards status or towards awards other than standard rooms.

If you want to earn 2 free nights at any participating Hyatt in the world from a credit card signup and meeting minimum spend, this is your last shot.

  1. Hi Gary
    How long do you have to wait between cancelling the Hyatt card and getting it again for the bonus?

  2. Gary, thanks for the post! If I apply for this at the same time as the Chase IHG card, will it minimize my hard pulls?
