Chase Hyatt Now Requires $2,000 In Spend + Best Offer Available

The Offer

The Chase Hyatt card used to require you to spend $1,000 within three months. This has now been increased to a spend of $2,000 within three months, all offers seem to have been updated. The best offer is two free nights after $2,000 in spend, $50 statement credit after first purchase. I believe this offer also comes with the 5,000 points for adding an authorized user and them making their first purchase, but I’m not 100% sure (Update this comment confirms it, even though the 5k points doesn’t show on offer page). If this isn’t the case and you’d prefer the 5,000 points for adding an authorized user you can use this link, otherwise you need to:

  1. Make a dummy booking on Hyatt.com (some people say this needs to not be in a major city or on a weekend, but YMMV)
  2. On the check out page before payment you’ll see the offer next to credit card information (see image below)

Annual fee not waived from FT Hyatt Card Wiki

There’s an offer of two free nights after $1K $2K spend in 3 months, with waiver of the first-year $75 annual fee, plus 5K pts for adding an AU. (Spend amount increased to $2K on/about Sept. 9, 2016.

I can confirm that as of 2 weeks ago (before min spend was increased), the 2 free nights + $50 statement credit offer did include 5000 points for adding an AU even though it does not say that anywhere. Just a data point that I have not seen mentioned elsewhere really…

Thanks for the DP! Where did you get that offer? from dummy booking?

Yup, dummy booking like in the post. Was surprised to see the 5000 points added to my account along with the $50 credit.

Interesting I applied for this card about 3 weeks ago and was just approved about 5 days ago after confirming some details. Wonder if I’ll get the 1000 or 2000 min spend. Either way I’m just glad to get approved again for this card

I didn’t see this posted: It looks like the offer for the Chase Marriott Rewards Premier card no longer includes a waiver of the $85 annual fee the first year.
