The Chase World Of Hyatt Credit Card is one of my favorite credit cards. It earns valuable Hyatt points and allows me to earn Hyatt elite status and free nights with spending. Plus cardholders get discounts on award stays and bonus points on paid stays. You can read more about the card here.
All cardholders get annual anniversary nights. If you spend $15,000 during a cardmembership year you get a bonus anniversary night.
Chase is changing that to a calendar year qualification period.
Cardholders that already have the card or get the card in 2020 will be able to earn a bonus anniversary night with $15,000 of spending from their 2020 card anniversary or card opening date through their 2021 card anniversary date. They will be able to earn a bonus night in 2021 with $15,000 of spending from their 2021 card anniversary date through 12/31/21. Starting in 2022 the spending from 2021 will reset to 0 and they will earn a bonus night with $15,000 of spending in 2022.
That means you can earn 2 free bonus anniversary nights in 2021, or a total of 3 free nights with the base anniversary night.
Hyatt also awards another free night when you earn Explorist elite status at 30 elite nights for the calendar year.
All cardholders get 5 elite night credits for having the card and until 12/31/20 new cardholders get 10 elite night credits in 2020 and 2021. You earn 2 elite night credits with every $5,000 spent, so $30,000 of spending to earn the 2 bonus anniversary nights will earn you another 12 elite night credits. Using your anniversary nights will also earn elite night credits, so after making some hotel stays you can earn yet another free night upon hitting Explorist status at 30 elite night credits for 2021, plus you’ll get 2 club lounge awards.
If you become a Hyatt cardholder in 2021 you’ll have until 12/31/21 to spend $15,000 to earn a bonus anniversary night. Starting in 2022 the spending from 2021 will reset to 0 and they will earn a bonus night with $15,000 of spending in 2022.
