New World of Hyatt Credit Card, Big Time Improvement
Hyatt announced a new World of Hyatt credit card and let me tell you, it got a lot better! Could it be that a company finally took a look at what people want and actually listened? The bonus got better, the perks got better, and the earning structure got better!
Details on the Bonus
The new World of Hyatt credit card comes with the following sign up bonus:
- 40,000 Hyatt points after $3,000 in spend
- An additional 20,000 Hyatt points after $6,000 in total spend within 6 months ($3,000 more)
This is an increase of 20,000 bonus points compared to the previous offer. It is unclear if you still get 5,000 points for adding an authorized user but I think that is likely.

The new World of Hyatt credit card comes with the following earning structure:
- 4 points per dollar at Hyatt properties
- 2 points per dollar at
- Fitness club/gym memberships
- Airfare booked directly with airlines
- Local transit including rideshare (Uber, Lyft etc.)
- 1 point per dollar on everything else
The card perks is where the World of Hyatt credit card really shines. You still get the 1-4 category anniversary night each year. But now you can earn an additional night each year after $15,000 in spend.
You can also earn 2 nights in elite credit per $5,000 in spend. The card still comes with Discoverist status and gives you 5 nights elite credit for carrying it.
What About Current Cardholders?
Current Hyatt credit card holders will be offered a one time upgrade offer for 2,000 points. The new World of Hyatt credit card comes with a $95 annual fee.
This is some amazing news. Chase completely revamped this card and made it an everyday spend possibility. They may be trying to scoop up all of the SPG credit card spend American Express will be losing come August.
We will bring you more detailed analysis over the next few days but let me know what you think in the comments section. This card is worth getting and putting at least $15,000 in spend on each year in my opinion.
