The World of Hyatt Business Credit Card has a new, creative initial bonus offer. In addition to the 60,000 points you could earn as a new cardmember already they’ve added an offer of double elite qualifying nights for the last four-plus months of the year.
This is a great card to get for the up front bonus. In fact, if you’re eligible for new Chase cards and can get a business card, that’s a rich enough reward to make applying almost a no-brainer. The card is reasonably rewarding for spend, and has some interesting benefits.
I thought I’d lay out what I think are the (5) reasons to get the card, and see if these match with your goals.
Moreover there’s a limited time offer: Apply by 10/6/22 and get the card to receive 2 Tier-Qualifying Night Credits for each night you stay from 8/23/22 through 12/31/22.
I value Hyatt points at 1.4 cents apiece, making the initial bonus worth $840. In fact they’re probably worth even more than that to me (revealed preference) since I find Hyatt is the Chase Ultimate Rewards partners I transfer to most. But it’s the double elite nights that push this over the finish line for many of you.
Hyatt’s top tier of elite status (Globalist) is the most rewarding generally accessible elite loyalty tier of any chain in my view, but you actually get rewards at every 10 elite nights earned in the program, up to 100 nights each year.

|90||N/A||10,000 points or suite upgrade award|
|100||N/A||10,000 points or suite upgrade award|
Spending $50,000 or more on the card in a calendar year entitles cardmembers to receive a 10% rebate on points redeemed for the rest of that calendar year, up to 20,000 points back each year (at 1.4 cents apiece, worth up to $280).
I want the up front bonus, and I probably need the card for its more powerful earn towards status tiers. So the World of Hyatt Business Credit Card is one of the cards that is now at the top of my list (that I do not already have) If I were currently under 5/24 I’d apply right now.
