Last Day? The Awesome 60,000 Point World of Hyatt Offer May Drop Tomorrow

new world of hyatt credit card
Written by Charlie

The World of Hyatt card has an awesome offer of 60,000 points as a sign-up bonus – plus a lot of benefits like elite nights, anniversary night, earned nights, and more! It may drop to 50,000 points tomorrow so you may want to act today!

Last year, Hyatt rolled out their very impressive World of Hyatt credit card. It replaced the 2 free nights of the old Hyatt card with 60,000 points (with tiered spending) – and that was ok! Having points opens up a lot of options for how you can use your bonus and you are not tied to a one year expiration date.

Well, this awesome offer has run its course and it is said that the 60,000 point offer will drop to 50,000 points tomorrow. Remember, this card now falls under Chase 5/24!

Note – it appears that referral offers and affiliate offers are already showing the new 50,000 point offer. I am not sure if the link below will change as well tomorrow or not so be warned! The new 50,000 point offer has 25,000 points with $3,000 in spend and the other 25,000 points after an additional $3,000 in spending (for a total of $6,000 in 6 months).

Sign-up Bonus – 60,000 Points

Let’s jump right into it – the sign-up bonus of 60,000 points is just awesome! The best Hyatt offer before had been before last year when we had the 2 free nights. This offer is even better for the following reasons:

  • Point flexibility
  • No expiration
  • The points can be transferred

Of course, 60,000 points is enough for 2 free nights at the top tier Hyatt properties (which can go for almost $1,000 a night!) but they can also be used to grab 12 nights at a Category 1 or anything in between.

The points can also be used to pay the points portion of a Points+Cash reservation. The points can be used to let you book a suite or Club room on points as well. They just have so much more flexibility than the free nights – plus you still get 2 free nights at Category 7 properties if you want.

Anniversary Nights

annual free hotel nights

The Grand Hyatt in Washington, DC – a Category 4 hotel!

Hyatt had a winner with their Category 1 – 4 anniversary night each year. For most of us, we could easily get the $75 worth of the annual fee out of that free night.

Now, they have formed a hybrid of sorts by offering that same Category 1 – 4 again but giving the option to have another free Category 1 – 4 when you spend $15,000 in a cardmember year.

Put simply, that is a killer combination! You have a free night for holding it but you can get another one for doing the spending. Some other cards offer a free night but you have to spend for it also – it does not come standard.

The Hyatt card lets you earn 2 free nights that can be redeemed on any night up to Category 4 hotels (and there are a lot of nice Category 3 and 4 hotels).

Elite Credits

mid-tier elite

The new World of Hyatt credit card comes standard with 5 elite nights and the ability to earn 2 additional nights for every $5,000 spent (with no cap).

While putting a lot of spending on hotel cards is never a great idea for most people, it can make a lot of sense for those customers who need to close the gap for hitting Explorist (30 nights) or Globalist (60 nights).

Other hotel credit cards do let you earn status with spending (Hilton lets you go all the way up to Diamond with $40,000 in spending) or they let you earn elite nights with spending. With Marriott, it is 1 credit for every $3,000 so it is not as good as the earning on the Hyatt card.

Earning elite status or elite credit is not a novel thing on a co-branded credit card but Hyatt has mixed it all together in a nice bag with their other perks on this new card as well.


The World of Hyatt card, as it currently is, is a very strong hotel card. Between the anniversary night, earning of the free night, elite credits, and the sign-up bonus, this is a fantastic deal! It will still be a good deal with 50,000 points given the strength of the card benefits themselves, but if you are interested in it, you might as well get it with the extra 10,000 points now!

  • Charlie, thanks for posting the link to the best offer, instead of the link you make a commission from. I appreciate it. Not everyone on Boarding Area is so upstanding.

    • Thanks, Joseph! I appreciate that! I actually had only noticed it when I looked at my referral link and saw that it had dropped – oh well! 🙂
