The World of Hyatt Business Credit Card is offering 60,000 Bonus Points after you spend $5,000 on purchases in your first 3 months from account opening. But as a further inducement to apply for the card now (this offer ends October 6, 2022) new cardmembers receive 2 Tier-Qualifying Night Credits for each night you stay from 8/23/22 through 12/31/22. That’s double elite qualifying nights through end of the year.
Through December 20, 2022 Hyatt is offering double elite qualifying nights on all-inclusive stays at Hyatt Ziva, Hyatt Zilara, Zoetry Wellness Spa & Resorts, Secrets Resorts & Spas, Breathless Resorts & Spas, Dreams Resorts & Spas, Alua Hotels & Resorts, and Sunscape Resorts & Spas. A property needs to be participating in the World of Hyatt program in order to earn double qualifying nights. (Registration required.)
These two offers stack, allowing you to earn (3) elite nights per night stayed at all-inclusives through December 20.
In addition the World of Hyatt Business Credit Card also earns 5 Tier-Qualifying night credits toward status. You’re already going to spend $5,000 on the card to earn the initial bonus, push through to $10,000 for 5 elite nights.
Together this makes earning Hyatt status remarkably easy. Top tier Globalist status is earned after 60 nights. That includes Globalist breakfast, upgrades, and 4 p.m. late check-out. And 60 night benefits include 4 confirmable suite upgrade certificates [2 earned at 50 nights and 2 earned at 60 nights] and an assigned My Hyatt Concierge, plus a category 1-7 free night award.
This can also be useful even for those going beyond 60 nights, since Hyatt awards benefits every 10 nights:
|10||25k base points or 3 meetings||Discoverist|
|20||35k base points||2 club lounge access awards|
|30||50k base points or 10 meetings||Explorist, 2 club access awards, cat 1-4 free night|
|40||65k base points||5k points or $100 Hyatt gift card or 10k points off FIND experience|
|50||80k base points||2 confirmed suite upgrade awards|
|60||100k base points or 20 meetings||Globalist, 2 suite upgrade awards, cat 1-7 free night, concierge|
|70||N/A||10,000 points or suite upgrade award|
|80||N/A||10,000 points or suite upgrade award|
|90||N/A||10,000 points or suite upgrade award|
|100||N/A||10,000 points or suite upgrade award|
Award stays count as status-qualifying, and you can transfer Chase and Bilt points to Hyatt to redeem for those stays.
For anyone that’s wanted to jump into the Hyatt ecosystem – in my view, the best mainstream hotel loyalty program certainly for top elites – this is a fantastic opportunity. And for anyone trying to figure out how to requalify for their status, this seems can’t-miss.
