New Chase Hyatt Card – 5/24 Does NOT Apply & Weak Upgrade Bonus
Chase has launched a new Hyatt cobranded card called ‘World of Hyatt’, we discussed it in more detail here. Two F.A.Q’s readers had were answered in this post by Point Me To The Plane (who had access to Leslie Gilin, Chase President of Co-Brand Cards). The questions and answers are:
- Does the Chase 5/24 rule apply to this card? Update: According to Gary Leff from View From The Wing the 5/24 rule won’t immediately apply to this card, but it will in the future.
Yes. (Although I’m not 100% sure this is accurate as previously Chase has refused to answer direct questions regarding 5/24 and Point Me To The Plane incorrectly describes 5/24 as ‘…meaning those who have been approved for five new Chase card sign-ups in the past two years may get rejected’ 5/24 looks to all the cards you’ve been approved for, not only Chase cards.)
- Will there be an upgrade bonus? Yes. You’ll be able to receive 2,000 points for upgrading and presumably paying the $25 difference in annual fees. That upgrade offer is pathetically bad, but I guess they know that some people will want to upgrade regardless of the bonus offered.
