Chase and World of Hyatt are teaming up to offer up to 5,000 bonus points. World of Hyatt credit card holders can earn points based on the number of transactions they have on their card in February.
Boy, did the internet have some drama when Hyatt made this announcement last week. But, I’m getting ahead of myself. We’re getting to the end of 2020 and we’re also creeping closer to a vaccine. That means travel brands are starting to think about how to put Humpty Dumpty back together again. Hilton jumped out in the lead amongst hotel brands when they chopped elite qualification requirements in half. That was over a month ago, and I had expected we would already have seen other big brands jump in. With […]
Hyatt has announced some more changes and extensions to key benefits that should benefit most travelers. In light of the virtually unprecedented financial impact of COVID-19, travel brands have had to quickly adapt. Back in April, Hyatt moved to extend elite status and other key benefits such as free night awards. At that point, nobody was really sure when travel would rebound. The big chains made the decision to wave the white flag on getting loyalty members to qualify for status in 2020. Now, Hyatt is tweaking a few things […]
This may be the turning point where we start to see really meaningful offers from travel companies looking to motivate us to start traveling. Early on in the COVID-19 crisis the scramble was to confirm to customers that their elite status would be extended.

For now, though, I wanted to share my short-term credit card strategy. There are a ton of short-term opportunities to earn extra miles with credit cards right now. Many cards have […]
Hyatt has announced two promotions that members will be glad to hear about. Amidst the craziness of the COVID-19 crisis, travel brands across the world are struggling mightily. We had expected to see generous promotions as travel slowly started to return. How generous was the key question. Judge for yourself. Hyatt Offering Triple Points On All Paid Stays Hyatt will be offering triple points on all eligible paid stays from June 15th through September 15, 2020 after your first stay. They’re offering this at all properties that are part of […]
Hyatt has been growing quite quickly as of late and had another announcement last week that increases the size of their footprint. That announcement comes on the heels of an integration with Small Luxury Hotels of the World where they’ve added over 100 properties where you can earn and redeem World of Hyatt points and enjoy elite benefits. Let’s touch on last week’s announcement quickly and then dig in just a little deeper. Plenty of my fellow bloggers have covered this news already. Even a few days past the […]
