I was wondering if I had to write a blog post about my New Hyatt Credit Card because I was so happy when I got it and I was really impressed about the advantages that I can get with.
This new credit cards is a Chase credit card, so be careful about the rule 5/24 before you apply, because you can be declined even if you have an excellent credit score.
Months after using the New Hyatt Credit Card, here are five reasons why you should have the new he has credit card in your wallet, of course in my own opinion.
1. Free Hyatt Hotel nights : An excellent welcome bonus
When I applied, the welcome bonus was offering 40 000 Hyatt points, enough to get 1 night in the luxury hotel parc Hyatt PARIS Place Vendôme.
Sometime the price for a regular room for one night can be up to $1500 ! So this welcome bonus worth it. I had to spend $2000 in the first 3 months to be eligible.
Now the ne Hyatt credit card is offering up to 60000 points as a welcome bonus.
Here’s how it works:
- Earn 40,000 Bonus Points after you spend $3,000 on purchases within the first 3 months of account opening, a lot of point right ?
- You can earn an additional 20,000 Bonus Points after you spend $6,000 total on purchases within the first 6 months of account opening.
It could give you 2 nights at the parc Hyatt in Paris or up to 4 nights in a regular Hyatt hotel. Perfect to plan some holidays !
2. Earn Hyatt points on all your purchases
With your Hyatt Credit Card, you will earn Hyatt points on all your eligible purchases. Here how it works :

Then, ear 1 Bonus Point per $1 spent for all other purchases.

How will I use my Signup Bonus of 60 000 points ?
I love to spend time on Internet to check prices and compare. After some research, I value my bonus $1600 approximately (€1480) and I will tell you why and how I find this amount.
I want to stay 2 nights at the luxury hotel Park Hyatt in Place Vendôme, Paris. See below my screenshot, in January, one night cost €740 or 30 000 points. If I use my 60 000 points, I will get the 2 nights for free and I will enjoy a hotel trop of $1600 ! Amazing Right ?
Last word, this card don’t offer Price Protection, so check all the perks before applying to this Hyatt Credit Card from Chase.
