Cardholders that have a legacy $75/year Chase Hyatt credit card will automatically have their cards converted into a $95/year Chase World of Hyatt card on 1/11/21.
If your next annual fee is before 8/1/21 then it will be for $75, but renewals as of 8/1/21 will be for $95.
Aside from the increased annual fee, the World of Hyatt card is far superior to the legacy card and is one of my favorite credit cards.
- It offers 4 points per dollar at Hyatt hotels instead of 3.
- If offers 2 points per dollar on fitness and gym memberships, dining, and local transit.
- It offers 5 elite qualifying nights annually and the ability to earn 2 elite qualifying nights for every $5,000 spent so that you can earn top-tier status and a plethora of free night and suite certificates from credit card spending.
- If offers a second anniversary night for spending $15K annually.
If you currently have a legacy Hyatt you can register for a free night after spending $4,000. That stacks on top of bonus points for spending at Amazon and grocery stores for both legacy and World of Hyatt cards.
If you don’t want your card converted you can close it before 1/11/21. You would then be eligible for a Chase World of Hyatt card signup bonus after waiting a few days.
Will you convert or close your legacy Hyatt card?
