[Targeted] Chase Hyatt – Up To 70,000 Points Bonus

The Offer

No direct link to offer, sent out via e-mail with the subject line ‘First time ever: Earn up to 70,000 Bonus Points’

  • Chase is offering the following a sign up bonus on the World of Hyatt card of up to 70,000 points. Broken down as follows:
    • Earn 35,000 bonus points after $5,000 in spend within the first three months
    • Additional 35,000 bonus points after you spend a total of $10,000 on your card within the first 6 months of account opening

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

Previous best bonus was 60,000 points. Standard bonus was 50,000 points. We’ve also seen an offer of up to two free nights (category 1-7) as well). Obviously this is a better offer than all of those and the spend requirement is very similar to the 60,000 point offer. It’s a shame this offer is targeted otherwise it would definitely be going on the best credit card bonus page. Even if you’re targeted the 5/24 rule applies to this card so most people won’t be eligible.

Has anyone had luck calling Chase and asking for an offer match to targeted offers? I didn’t realize I had opted out of Chase promotions, so unfortunately I don’t know whether I’ve been targeted or not (or maybe I can’t be targeted since I’m opted out; I’ve just opted in after seeing this).

Same situation here. Is there any way to actively find out whether I am targeted?

The 60k offer was 40k after $3k spend and 20k after additional $3k spend ($6k total). This is 70k points for $10k total spend. So 10k additional points for $4k more spend or 2.5p/$ spent. Not that great.

Even if you think it’s “not that great,” it’s clearly at least as good as the 60k offer (previous best ever), which is no longer available.

I’d say it’s the best offer ever given that I’d personally ms the $15k anyway to get the free night award.

You’re also not factoring in that spending 10k adds 4 more Elite Nights to your WOH account in addition to the 5 nights you get for having the card…Not to mention you’re then 2/3 of the way to getting the Free Night Certificate too. I would say the value on that Certificate is at minimum $150 (very conservative considering I typically can use them for more than double that!).

Overall I think it’s an amazing offer.

I just applied for this card a month and already did the 50,000 points. Is there anyway I can get chase to match this? If so how do I go about doing this?

Send them a SM.

Not likely they will match the offer unless you had the targeted email offer.

Last week I got a trial explorist status for 90 days and I believe it triggered this offer.
I also applied for Hyatt card with a regular 50k bonus, my application was still pending when I got this email. Called Chase but CSR told they cannot attach the upgraded offer to my current application, so I decided to cancel it and reapply later. Wasted a hard pull 🙁

Sharing a data point…my wife received this offer. She has explorist status via status match (wyndham to caesars to mlife to hyatt) last year. Minimal actual stays at Hyatt from her account (done almost exclusively via my account).

I vaguely recall receiving the email which is deleted to trash promptly due to poor value.

Not sure why anyone would want a Hyatt card when the UR pt is 1 to 1 transferred to Hyatt.

UR cards constantly have higher sign up bonuses. Hyatt card also is subj to 5/24.

There is no advantage to get a Hyatt card with AF not waived and meh sign up bonus that requires a very large spend.

I agree that Hyatt card is not a first choice for an average user but eventually you get all or most of UR cards 🙂
and except Ink Preferred UR bonuses are lower than 70K

If you cannot get UR bonuses then what do you do ? Also the points earned by staying at Hyatt is much more than booking through a UR card

Several Perks to this offer and card:

9 Elite Nights which count for Milestones and Status.

70k points which if you’re basing it based on UR to Hyatt $700, though you’ll likely find they can be redeemed for over $1,500 worth of stays fairly easily.

Automatic Discoverist Status with Hyatt

Automatic MLife Pearl Status via Match

Free Night Certificate every year easily worth $200-$300.

By completing the offer you’ll be 2/3 of the way to another Free Night Certificate.

And all that is just for completing the offer, not even the extra points earned beyond that for staying at Hyatt, using the card etc.

I’d give this offer an A very easily.

I have Freedom, CIP, and CSP in addition to the World of Hyatt CC. Yes, it’s a great perk to transfer UR but everything you get for signing up for it is really an outstanding deal. Not to mention you get a guaranteed free night every year which is easily worth $200-$300 for only the $95 Annual Fee. I’d take that trade any day.

Hyatt gives a free night certificate each account anniversary, which cancels out the $100 fee and then some. Properties are usually minimum $150-200/night in my experience. Then it’s good for everyday spend if you value Hyatt points at 2+ cpp, because that doubles the earning rates listed above, and makes the card better than Citi Double Cash or similar 2% cards. If you’re lucky you can squeeze 3.5 cpp out of the card. Also, no foreign transaction fees. For anyone who likes Hyatt, there’s no reason NOT to get this card. The only question is which signup bonus and what one can MS.

Wife received this offer. Between stays and spend, the Hyatt card is a great way to obtain Globalist. Will wait until January for Wife to apply. I’m Globalist through 02/21 so Wife can obtain globalist next year and we’ll rotate every year. Honestly, if I didn’t have Globalist status, our travels would be mundane.

I received this offer in email. Upon clicking the button, it takes me to the page asking for invitation number, which is not included in the email. Do not know how to proceed now.

Tried SM’ing and matching this offer on a 2 month old account, got shot down ..
“although your account isn’t eligible for the new
offer of 70,000 bonus points which you requested, the
original offer is still available and will remain on your
account.”
