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* Hyatt Gold Passport® 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.

*All members of the Gold Passport® program earn 5X points on purchases made at Hyatt properties. As a cardholder, receive complimentary Hyatt Platinum Status in the Gold Passport® program (for primary cardholder only) which comes with room upgrades, complimentary premium Wi-Fi, and late checkout, plus a 15% point bonus on those 5X points, bringing the total rewards to 8.75X Points per dollar spent at Hyatt!

Limited Time Bonus: you'll earn 2 free nights for use at any Hyatt property when you sign up now and spend $2,000 on purchases in the first 3 months of account opening. These are valid 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 in the first 3 months. 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.

Bonus Offer

Earn 2 Free Nights at any Hyatt hotel or resort worldwide (up to $2400 value) when you spend $2,000 on purchases within first 3 months of account opening

Earn 5,000 points (up to $100 value) when you add an authorized user and they make a purchase within first 3 months of account opening


We recommend you have Good to Excellent (690 - 850) credit before applying for this card.

Signup bonus of 2 Free Nights is valid for a standard room and must be used within 1 year from issuance. 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.

All cardholders instantly get Platinum Status; if you reach Diamond status you'll earn a 30% point bonus from Hyatt, bringing the total rewards to 9.5X Points per dollar spent at Hyatt.

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

Changes to the Hyatt program: Hyatt Gold Passport® will be changing to World of Hyatt with new status tiers and benefits starting March 1, 2017.

Discoverist status will include room upgrades, waived resort fees on Free Night awards, complimentary premium Wi-Fi, and complimentary Pearl status with M life Rewards, the loyalty program for MGM Resorts International. The 15% point bonus will be discontinued, but you'll earn 5% Bonus points March 1, 2017 - February 28, 2018.  During this time you'll earn 8.25X Points on Hyatt purchases.

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 even the 2 Free Nights you get can be used for luxury properties anywhere like Japan, Aspen, Maldives and more. Crazy could be worth over $2000 alone with just the signup promo." Dan W. of Brookline, MA
