Via a post on /r/churning there appears to be a new version of a sign-up bonus offered on the Chase Hyatt Visa. The standard sign-up offer is for two free nights at any Hyatt hotel after spending $1,000 within the first three months.
This is a great deal if you plan on using the two free nights at a category 7 hotel which costs 30,000 points per night. If you don’t redeem the two free nights at a category 6 hotel or higher than the 50,000 point offer (see below) will be a better value for you.
For instance, with 50,000 bonus points you can stretch your points to get:
- 10 free nights at a category 1 hotel
- 6 free nights at a category 2 hotel
- 4 free nights at a category 3 hotel
- 3 free nights at a category 4 hotel
- 2 free nights at a category 5 hotel
The new offer that appears to be targeted to certain Hyatt Gold Passport members is for 50,000 after spending $1,000 within the first three months. Both offers include an additional 5,000 bonus points if you add an authorized user that makes a purchase.
50,000 + 5,000 Points Hyatt Visa Sign-up Bonus
If you are a Hyatt Gold Passport member and specially a newer member, check your inbox for this offer. Emails for the offer include a application link and a unique invitation code to apply.
The details on the offer are:
- Earn 50,000 Gold Passport points after spending $1,000 in 3 months
- Earn 5,000 Gold Passport points after adding an authorized user
- Earn 1 free night each card year anniversary
- Automatic Gold Passport Platinum status
- Annual fee: $0 for the first year and $75 after that
- No foreign transaction fees
If you are not set on redeeming your bonus on a category 7 (30,000 points/night) Hyatt property than this 50,000 bonus point offer may suit you better and ultimately offer give you more flexibility.
You’ll get much more value out of the sign-up bonus if you redeem the 50,000 points at lower tier hotels and you won’t be limited to the 1 year expiration that is attached to the two free nights certificates.
The offer is said to expire on November 30, 2015, but as it’s a targeted offer your offer date may differ. Be sure to check it!
Tips For Getting The 50,000 + 5,000 Point Hyatt Visa Bonus Offer
There’s no sure fire way to get targeted for most Chase credit card offers and often times they seem to be rather random. However, reports from people suggest that newly created Hyatt Gold Passport accounts may be targeted for this new offer.
If you have recently created a new account keep your eye out for this offer or consider making a new account for yourself, spouse or travel partner to see if you get targeted for the offer.
