I recently applied for the Hyatt Credit Card offered by Chase to earn two free nights at any Hyatt hotel in the world. This is a great welcome bonus for anyone looking to stay at some of Hyatt top-tier hotel as the free nights can be used at ANY hotel.
After having the two free nights deposited into my account sooner than expected I thought I would write a follow up. Often the terms on many credit card offers say the time period when you can expect to earn the additional miles and points after meeting the spending requirement.
From all the credit cards I’ve signed up for I have found that these are mostly in place to provide a maximum allotted amount of time to award you the bonus, but in practice you may received the bonus much sooner---as in the case with my Hyatt card.
Here’s the timeline of how long it took for me to get the two free nights:
I’ve heard reports of the two free nights taking a month or more after the close of the first statement, so it’s great to see that it’s possible to get them speedier as well. I can’t say for sure if this is the case across the board, but from my experience it only took around a week for the free night certificates to post to my account after reaching the minimum spending requirement.
The two free nights are valid for one year from when they are issued (deposited to your account), so you’ll want to have valuable upcoming Hyatt stays before going for this card. It’s possible to get ~$1,800+ from these two free nights when used at a expensive property such as the Park Hyatt Paris-Vendome.
In either case this card is a great way to earn two free nights at any Hyatt hotel and automatic Platinum status. The card also offers a free night at any category 4 property every year you pay the $75 annual fee. Anyways those were just my data point for this card and hope it can help you plan on you best use of the free nights!
