Chase Hyatt: Two Free Nights (Category 1-7) & $50 Statement Credit

Update 3/9/19: There seemed to be some confusion on other blogs on why I thought this bonus was only good on category 1-7 properties as the landing page doesn’t specifically state that. The offer was originally found when doing a dummy booking and that clearly states the category restriction:

The landing page itself never says the free nights are unrestricted, but I do find it a little weird the category 1-7 restriction isn’t specifically mentioned. Either way I don’t think you’ll have much chance fighting it.

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • Chase is offering the following sign up bonus on the World of Hyatt card:
    • $50 statement credit after first purchase
    • Free night certificate (good at any category 1-7 property) when you spend $3,000 in purchases within the first three months
    • Free night certificate (good at any category 1-7 property) when you spend $6,000 in purchases within the first six months

Card Details

  • The product is not available to either (i) current Cardmembers of any Hyatt Credit Card, or (ii) previous Cardmembers of any Hyatt Credit Card who received a new Cardmember bonus within the last 24 months.
  • Annual fee of $95
  • Card earns at the following rates:
    • 4x points per $1 spent on Hyatt hotels (they advertise this as 9x, but it’s 4x plus the 5x you normally get anyway)
    • 2x points per $1 spent on local transit and commuting (including taxis, mass transit, tolls and ride-share serivces)
    • 2x points per $1 spent on restaurants, cafes and coffee shops
    • 2x points per $1 spent on airline tickets purchased directly from the airlines
    • 2x points per $1 spent on fitness clubs and gym memberships
    • 1x points per $1 spent on all other purchases
  • Receive up to two free nights annually:
    • One free night at any category 1-4 Hyatt property every year after your card member anniversary
    • An additional free night at any category 1-4 Hyatt property if you spend $15,000 during your card member anniversary year
  • Status:
    • World of Hyatt Discoverist status for as long as the card is open
    • 5 qualifying night credits towards your next tier status every year
    • An additional 2 qualifying night credits towards your next tier every time you spend $5,000 on the card (no limit)
  • Chase 5/24 rule does apply to this card

Our Verdict

Previously the best bonus on this card has been 60,000 points. Currently the public bonus is 50,000 points. The Hyatt award chart looks as follows:

If you redeem the two certificates from this deal on a category 7 property then this new deal is better than the old 60,000 point deal as it also comes with a statement credit. If you redeem them for a category 6 property then it’s better than the current 50,000 point deal. Personally I prefer the point deals as it gives you a lot more flexibility but I can see this current deal being useful if you have a specific category 6/7 property in mind and want to redeem the certificates in the short term. Keep in mind the changes coming to Hyatt property categories on March 18th. If you’re thinking about applying for this card, make sure you read through these things everybody should know about Chase cards first.

I foolishly had my wife give up her Hyatt card a couple years ago (I still have one) thinking she could reapply in a couple years and get the sign-up bonus again. But the 5/24 rule would seem to prevent that. Any workarounds? Not worth getting below 5/24 to just get this card.

I prefer points, but 5/24+++ anyway

If there is a god he will remove these from 5/24

Abey

They don’t have to raise the sign up bonus to get more applications they just have to raise the 5/24 limit…

Hmm Hyatt Ziva… it’s not just the points, it’s the extra points if you’re with kids.

mjs

+1. it’s another 20-25k/night once you have kids over like 3 at Zivas. Wish I didn’t get the 60k from the fall now.

venkat

you can pay by cash for kids, which is less than $100 per night.

I emailed Hyatt Ziva they said, “Adult (+13 yrs old) is 220 USD per night and Kid (3 – 12 yrs old) is 110 USD per night” when you add them to your room.

Can anyone confirm if the free night works at Hyatt Ziva with one room with max four people per night since adding two more people will be 50k/night?

Arley

If I refer someone they won’t get this deal, correct?

mjs

check it out yourself. generate a referral link and click on it to see what pulls up.

Arley

Duh! LOL.

It refers to the public offer of 50k points.

i like the 60k point deal better

The game changer would be whether or not the free night certificate allows up to four people at the ziva all inclusive like it used to.

huh
huh

could you explain four people in a room?whats the big deal any hotel allows that /

Dale R

Ziva is an all inclusive that charges a hefty points surcharge per extra person.

huh

so just checkin and then brong people in afterwards. whats the big deal?

Dale R

they have security at the entrance and keep track.

Highlighter

exactly. really interested to see if they will still allow 4 people in a ziva property – i dont see any mention under the offer details.

Jazz

Yup. I don’t see that it restricts 2 people in room for free night.

any updates on this Chuck, I can’t find anything posted by any bloggers on how many occupants for Ziva for the new certificates.

I got this shortly before it went under 5/24 and have been thinking of the next move for player 2, as she is under. This seems like an excellent combination with my 70k+ Hyatt points and our combined 300k UR…

Anyone know if the free nights can be gifted to someone else? My hunch is yes, but anyone have experience doing this in the past with the free nights from cc sign up?

Preacher

When it was two nights at any property in the old days, I used more than one gifted set of nights. Not sure if the sign up bonus now is as flexible.

Preacher

So these free nights won’t work at the Miraval properties, right?

psh

I was thinking the same thing. Pretty sure they won’t work, as Miraval costs more than 30k/night (Cat 7 price), even for single occupancy.

Koob
Koob

T&A says not valid at Miraval properties.

Category 8 Hyatts are a recent occurrence right? Maybe the picture you’re showing is them trying to say that the nights can be used anywhere, but whoever made it forgot that they had category 8 properties now. Or maybe it was made before there were category 8 properties?

Jace

Strictly worse than 50k and 60k points in my opinion. The major value in Hyatt points is in category 1-3 hotels. Extremely low point value for hotels that often go for $200 or $300. If you go for category 7 hotels ,then obviously this deal is great for you. However, you can get MASSIVE value doing several smaller weekend trips, or even two separate trips at category 3 or 4 hotels.

This would be a good deal on a Marriott or Hilton card, but not for hyatt.

Ryan

60k points is worth 4 nights at a category 4 hotel and 5 nights at a category 3. There are some really nice hotels in this group. Points are worth way more than (2) category 1-7 nights.

Safe to assume the 2 free nights expire 12 months after earning them?

Michelle

Are the certificates valid for 1 year or 6 months only? That isn’t clear to me even from the offer sign up site. Thanks!

Each Free Night Award is valid for use within one (1) year from issuance for one (1) night in any available standard room at any Hyatt hotel or resort worldwide or participating M life resorts. Each Free Night Award must be redeemed for a reservation with a checkout date before the expiration date of the award.

I’m on hold with Hyatt now because my two free night awards are showing an expiration of 6 months.
