Hyatt is finally going to be offering a credit card.
It will be issued by Chase bank as a Visa Signature card.
What excites me are the rumored signup bonuses. One possibility is 1,000 points for every time you’ve stayed in a Hyatt over the past 2 years. With their insanely generous promotions (Last October they gave 14,000 miles+a free night worldwide for $120 worth of stays) I’ve had dozens and dozens of stays that would qualify. Another rumored signup bonus is a couple of free nights at any Hyatt worldwide. Plus there will be benefits such as a number of confirmed upgrades to suites even on award nights.
The only problem is I just applied for a United chase card last week (hey 30K miles with no fee seemed worthwhile at the time) and Chase now only permits one card application every 6 months…
I haven’t seen any estimated launch dates for the Hyatt card yet, but stay tuned!
