Chase Hyatt Two Free Night + $50 + 5,000 Point Bonus

Everybody is talking about the Chase Hyatt card as the bonus will be switching to 40,000 points on June 29th. If you prefer the free nights offer then go for this bonus as it also includes the $50 statement credit.

The Offer

Direct link to offer (if that doesn’t work, try making a dummy booking)

  • Chase Hyatt is offering the following bonus:
    • 2 free nights after $2,000 in spend within the first three months of account opening
    • $50 statement credit after your first purchase
    • 5,000 points after adding an authorized user and them making their first purchase (not specifically mentioned on sign up bonus, but this applies to all Chase Hyatt cards)

Card Details

Our Verdict

This is the best offer on this card, apart from targeted 50,000/40,000 point bonuses that some people might prefer. This bonus used to have a minimum spending requirement of $1,000 but that was increased to $2,000. This offer is almost always available, we thought it might have expired on 03/01/2017 (thanks to our spreadsheet again) but that is not the case.

This is one of the better offers on Chase credit cards that are not subjected to the 5/24 rule. As always please read through this list of things everybody should know about Chase credit cards before applying or asking questions in the comments (as they have likely already been answered in more detail). I’m on the fence about adding this to our list of the best credit card offers, would like to hear readers thoughts.

    This is nice, is there a time-frame that you have to use your 2 free nights by? I’m not sure I would use them until late 2018 at the earliest.
    I’m 11 months away from being under 5/24, should I wait it out or say screw it lol?

    • tennismenace says:

      You have to *use* the two free nights within a year (not just book). However, keep in mind that you can take the whole 3 months to meet the spending requirement to extend that a little.

      In my opinion, if you’re more than about 3 months from being under 5/24, you should just go crazy with other banks. Chase’s cards are the best IMO but not so good that you should wait a year for them. There are other amazing deals to be had.

    • tennismenace says:

      Also–if you don’t use the free nights, people have reported that Hyatt has given them 40,000 points after their expiration date for the two unused nights. I wouldn’t necessarily count on this, but 40,000 would even be more valuable to some because of the increased flexibility.

      • Ben says:

        You can also ask Hyatt to extend the expiry date of the two free nights. They did this for me a few years back.

  2. Justin says:

    Nice – just got this on Saturday via a dummy booking. Looking at the Zilara Cancun for early next year

  3. T says:

    Not exactly related, but is there a no annual fee version of the hyatt card available to PC to?

  4. A.J. says:

    Any experiences/data-points with getting the $50 credit matched? I applied about 45 days ago without the credit…

  5. phil says:

    How does Chase know whether you made a purchase or your AU made it? Cards have same numbers.

  6. Chris says:

    Its nice to see a blog which identifies the offer with the $50 credit. I have noticed other bloggers encourage people to app for this card using their link which does not give a $50 credit even though its easily attainable. Is shady to say the least.

  7. Mike L says:

    Is there still an active targeted 50k bonus floating around or is that just a previous offer? I have the 40k offer now, but if they are still doing the 50k it might be wise to hold off, no?

  8. Lynn says:

    I did this when I applied in 2016 for both of us. I always check to see if the 50 credit will appear in the account. Works for IHG also.

  9. Sam says:

    thanks so much Doc, just applied and got approved for this card. planning on going to a Hyatt to propose to my gf. Now i just need to figure out which one to go to!

  10. R says:

    best part is 2 free nights can be used at any category hotel, so they are worth $1200 or even more if used wisely, i will be using these next month

    no reason for not applying for this card

  11. Sam A says:

    Hi DOC,

    I was approved for this card back in June 2015 and met the minimum spend and hence the bonus in the first statement cycle in July 2015. I closed this card in July 2016. When exactly do you think I would be eligible to apply for this card again to get the bonus? June 2017, July 2017 or July 2018?

    Thanks

  12. Roger says:

    I saw the following term “This product is not available to either (i) current cardmembers of this credit card, or (ii) previous cardmembers of this credit card who received a new cardmember bonus for this credit card within the last 24 months.”
    Does this mean I could receive another opening bonus even if I had this card before (I received the opening bonus 3 years ago)

  13. Richard says:

    I remember that the Hyatt credit card opening bonus is once per lifetime. However, I see that following term “This product is available to you if you do not have this card and have not received a new cardmember bonus for this card in the past 24 months. “. Does this mean I could receive the bonus again?

  14. Jen says:

    I was denied too. They gave some lame excuse saying if they do it for me, they have to do it for everyone else. Blah.

  15. Anthony says:

    Does anyone know if its possible for 2 separate people to receive the bonus and then combine the offer for 4 free nights? Planning on going to the Park Hyatt Tokyo next year.

  16. Lynn says:

    @ Anthony – sure, it worked for hubby and me last time and plan on doing Hyatt Ziva cancun all-inclusive for 4 nts this time around.

  17. Debbie says:

    Applied thought I was declined, but today a letter came asking me to send proof of address, proof of DOB, copy of letter. Strange since I have accounts with them. Has anyone received a letter like this before?

  18. Santorini says:

    Does anyone know if a family of four would get charged for the kids at Hyatt Ziva Cancun when using the free night certificates? I’m not sure how it works since it’s all inclusive – is it free for everyone (in this case, 4 people) or do they charge for more than 2 people in a room? Thanks.

    • M. Hernandez says:

      I’m also wondering about this as well. I was thinking of traveling to Ziva Cancun with 3 other friends (4 total). Will the 2 free nights cover all 4 of us for the all inclusive?

    • Michael says:

      From experience, no additional charge. Family of 4, with 2 adults and two children. They will even confirm that if you call to book with your free nights.

      Side note 1.. For 3 adults, a child, and a toddler, you will hear two different answers.

      No from the US side (customer service booking line)
      Yes from the hotel directly..

      Once you get there YMMV with that one though.

      Side note 2.. I am pretty sure, while I was making my own booking before, I discovered that if it was a points booking instead of a free night booking you would pay extra for the additional guests.

  19. Dani says:

    After months the card is on the way!!!! I just noticed something in the post that caught my eye…Does the au have to use the card for me to get the 5k?

  20. Kalboz says:

    5,000 points after adding an authorized user and them making their first purchase (not specifically mentioned on sign up bonus, but this applies to all Chase Hyatt cards)

    Is the 5K Hyatt points for adding a user still available?

  21. T says:

    went into 30 days review… 🙁 wait or call? What’s the recon number?

    • Josh says:

      Wait it out, unless you need the card ASAP. You can always call reconsideration even if you’re rejected.

  22. Keyon says:

    Which is better 40k points vs 2 free nights at the best possible Hyatt that you can book with 2 free nights certificate?

    Also, tried looking at the availability for Hyatt Cancun for next year and they don’t show points per night? Any idea why?

  23. airgypsy says:

    Hi Doc. I have the Hyatt card. I received the bonus more than 24 months ago. Is there still time for me to close existing card, then appy for a new one? would that work? Thanks.

  24. Dom says:

    Regarding the expiration date of the 2 nights. Must the 2 nights be used within 12 months or just booked?
    I’d prefer that If I get the card now, I book in 12 months for a trip 12 more months in advance.

    • irshad says:

      You should be using those 2 nights within 12 months. However, there are reports of chase giving 40K points after 12 months if you did not have a chance to use them. It is YMMV.

  25. Jon says:

    Applied but pending, should I call reconsideration line or just wait?

    • T says:

      check your chase account. If approved, the account should show up. I got the 30 day notice and called in but was immediately told approved before I even ask any questions.

  26. Kalei says:

    Just applied and got the “we need 30 days” answer. I’m 8/24…..any luck of other people getting this notice then getting approved? I was done with Chase for awhile because I got denied because of my 5/24, but I’ve always wanted this card, and with this offer changing, I figure I’d try for it. Would love some data points!

  27. why1818 says:

    I am way past 24 months, and I just cancelled my Chase Hyatt yesterday.
    If I apply today, how likely do I get rejected? Does it make any difference if I wait a couple more days?

  28. ttn says:

    The link isnt working and its not showing in dummy booing

  29. Marc says:

    Reposting from the other recent Chase Hyatt comments section, that seems to now be inactive:

    Can you clarify when the stopwatch begins with regards to not having received the same Chase Hyatt bonus within the last 24 months – with the prior card approval date or the prior 2 night award date? Specifically, I applied and was approved for this card on June 9, 2015, and then had the 2 free nights bonus awarded to me on July 12, 2015. I then cancelled my card after a year and was looking to reapply once the 24 month period had passed. So, if I apply for this card in the coming days (before June 29th), but wait until after July 12, 2017 to spend the $2K and be awarded the 2 nights, will I have met the criteria than I need to wait 24 months? Or will I be deemed ineligible because I am applying for this card just shy of 24 months from when I actually had the 2 earlier bonus nights awarded to me?

  30. GM says:

    Applied for it last night but had to call in recon line, they transferred my existing credit line and it got approved! I am under 5/24. Thanks Doc and everyone for this blog!
