Why We Like It

The Hyatt® Credit Card from Chase is an excellent hotel rewards card for Hyatt hotel enthusiasts and travelers.

With this card, earn 3X* World of Hyatt Points on purchases made at Hyatt properties, 2X Points on airfare purchased directly with airlines and at restaurants and car rental agencies, 1X Point on everything else.

Limited Time Bonus: you'll earn 40,000 bonus points when you sign up now and spend $2,000 on purchases in the first 3 months of account opening. These are valid at all Hyatt properties, even at Category 7 properties which could run anywhere from $600-1200 per night (depending on destination, day of week, and seasonality)!

Despite a $75 annual fee that isn't waived the first year, the value of this card easily outweighs the cost.

Also, earn 5,000 Bonus Miles when you add an authorized user ($0 fee) and they make a purchase the first 3 months as a cardmember. Based on our valuation, Hyatt points are valued at up to 2 cents per point, so the authorized user bonus could be worth up to $100. Redeem points for free nights starting at just 5,000 points.

 Promotional bonuses are valid for first-time cardholders and those who haven't received a new bonus for this card in the past 24 months.

There is no limit to how many miles you could earn and points do not expire as long as your account is active.

Thoughts from Actual Users

"Holy moly the earning power for money spent at Hyatt properties is unbelievable. LIke most hotel cards you get more value per point than a generic rewards card and Hyatt Card is definitely one of the best hotel rewards cards on the market." Seth G. of Columbus, OH

"I was able to use this card on both my wedding and honeymoon in the US and Mexico! Love Hyatt properties, they are underrated compared to SPG but often with better service and amenities. This card rocks!" Kate D. of Miami, FL

"100% the best hotel rewards card. Annual fee isn't waived first year but the 40,000 points and anything else you earn can be used for luxury properties anywhere like Japan, Aspen, Maldives and more. Getting the card was worth it for just the signup promo alone." Dan W. of Brookline, MA
