A growing hotel chain (whose top elite status is highly prized) made one of its credit cards a little more enticing.
The World of Hyatt Business Credit Card now offers 75,000 bonus points as part of its welcome offer:
- Earn 60,000 bonus points after you spend $5,000 on purchases in your first three (3) months from account opening
- Then, earn an additional 15,000 bonus points after you spend $12,000 total within the first six (6) months of account opening.
The previous offer was 60,000 bonus points. This offer expires on October 18, 2023.
Here’s something fun: the card gives Discoverist status to the primary cardholder and up to five employees, too! Your employees will appreciate this — they’ll have access to the dedicated World of Hyatt elite check-in lines that are often shorter than the non-status lines.
You’ll likely need to be below 5/24 to be approved for this card.
Card members can earn up to $100 in Hyatt statement credits: spend $50 or more at any Hyatt property and earn $50 statement credits up to two times each anniversary year!
Plus, there’s the opportunity to earn five (5) Tier-Qualifying night credits toward status and Milestone rewards for every $10,000 you spend during a calendar year. Gotta chase that Globalist, right?
Note that this card does not offer a complimentary anniversary night.
Points-wise, here are the earnings:
- 9X at Hyatt
- 2X per $1 spent in your top three (3) spend categories each quarter (through 12/31/24), then your top two categories each quarter. Eligible categories:
- Airline tickets purchased directly with airlines
- Internet, cable, and phone services
- Gas stations
- Car rental agencies
- Local transit and commuting
- Social media and search engine advertising
- 2X at Fitness clubs and on gym memberships (gotta stay in shape, right?)
- 1X on all other eligible purchases
The card’s annual fee is $199.
Is This Offer Worth It?
Remember that World of Hyatt is a Chase Ultimate Rewards® points transfer partner. If you simply want a bunch of Hyatt points and don’t care about the bells and whistles of the card, consider these options:
Here’s the Ink Business Preferred® Credit Card’s offer: earn 100,000 bonus Chase Ultimate Rewards® points after you spend $8,000 on purchases in the first three (3) months of being approved for card membership. You can then transfer Ultimate Rewards points to your Hyatt account. That’s 25% more bonus points for 25% less spending. And the Ink Business Preferred® has a $95 annual fee — less than half of the World of Hyatt business card’s $199.
Then there’s the Ink Business Cash® Credit Card. You can earn 75,000 bonus Ultimate Rewards points after you spend $6,000 on purchases in the first three (3) months of being approved for card membership. It’s the same amount of points for half of the minimum spending requirement. Plus, its annual fee is $0. And its bonus categories are — in my opinion — much better than the Hyatt business card’s.
Finally, we have the Ink Business Unlimited® Credit Card. That, too, offers 75,000 bonus Ultimate Rewards points after you spend $6,000 on purchases in the first three (3) months of being approved for card membership. Just like the Ink Cash, there’s a $0 annual fee. Our gripe with this card? A flat 1.5X earnings.
The World of Hyatt Business Credit Card sweetened its welcome offer to 75,000 bonus after spending $12,000 in purchases within six months of being approved for card membership.
If you genuinely like Hyatts, will take advantage of the status and spending opportunties, then go for it. But if chasing bonus points is more of your style, consider the other Chase business card offers. You can always transfer as many or few Ultimate Rewards points as you want over to Hyatt.
