$50 Statement Credit For Hyatt Credit Cardholders

Hyatt has done a pretty decent job of having unique offers for their co-branded credit cardholders. 

This past summer they repeated an offer from previous years where folks who held the Hyatt credit card received a rebate on any award reservations they made over a particular time period.  Promotions like that represent actual value in the face of an annual fee, as opposed to perceived value of bonus spending categories.

Hyatt is announcing a new promotion today for cardholders:

From September 27, 2016 to December 31, 2016, Hyatt Credit Cardmembers can register to receive a $50 statement credit if they spend $500 or more at U.S. Hyatt Regency hotels and resorts. Cardmembers must register by October 31, 2016 and complete their stays by December 31, 2016, and only reservations made directly through Hyatt will count toward the spend threshold. Additional notes: 
  • If a cardmember has previously booked an upcoming stay with Hyatt Regency, it will count as long as they register for the promotion and pay for it on their Hyatt Credit Card 
  • Any charges to the room (e.g. dining, spa) will also count towards the $500 spend threshold
  • The credit will appear on the cardmember’s statement 6-8 weeks after meeting the spend threshold
  • $50 is the maximum credit a cardmember can receive (even if they spend $1,000, they will still receive $50) 

Personally, I think this is a great promotion since I’m assured of spending at least $500 on Hyatt stays between now and the end of the year.  When balanced against a $75 annual fee, I’m getting tremendous value out of the Hyatt Credit Card when you consider the 10% rebate on award redemptions, this $50 credit and the free night that I receive upon renewal of the card.

Hyatt continues to provide solid value to me for holding their credit card.

I’ll update this post shortly when the registration link comes out.

  1. Sorry for the earlier comments which weren’t very productive. I’m fairly new to Hyatt, but with a couple of extended stays I’ve hit diamond this year. When I get my 2 free nights for the Hyatt card, can I use diamond upgrades on those? (I assume not since it is supposed to be “paid” but wanted to make sure).

    Also, do I get 4 free upgrades for the remainder of 2016 and then 4 more in 2017? I know these are basic questions and for other programs I know them inside and out, but this one I’m totally new to.

    1. emcdermott2, no such thing as basic questions. Everyone starts somewhere. You’ll earn 4 upgrades for earning Diamond status that will be good through the beginning of 2018. You can’t use a Diamond upgrade on a free night or award stay, but you can use them on “Points & Cash” stays. What else can I answer for you?

  2. Just got the email and wanted to see if anyone knows if the wording “book at Hyatt.com” includes the mobile app. I assume it does, but don’t want to miss out on $50 since I definitely have $500 in stays coming up.
