To earn the sign-up bonus, you’ll now have to spend $2,000 within the first 3 months of account opening.
But this isn’t horrible news. Because you’ll still earn 2 free night certificates to use at any Hyatt around the world, like the luxurious Park Hyatt Milan!
Here’s more about this change.
What’s the Deal?
Link: Chase Hyatt
With the Chase Hyatt card, you can earn 2 free nights at any Hyatt after spending $2,000 within the first 3 months of account opening.
And 5,000 bonus Hyatt points when you add an authorized user and make a purchase within the same timeframe.
The minimum spending requirement used to be just $1,000 in the first 3 months.
The $75 annual fee is NOT waived for the first year. But it’s a card worth keeping long-term, because you’ll earn a free night at a category 1 to 4 Hyatt hotel each year on your card anniversary. You can read my full review of the card here.
Should You Still Consider the Chase Hyatt Card?
While the minimum spending requirement used to be $1,000 within the first 3 months of opening your account, this change isn’t the end of the world.
Rooms here cost $700+ per night. So you can definitely get Big Travel with Small Money with this card!
Also, Chase’s stricter approval rules don’t seem to apply to this particular Chase card. So even if you’ve opened ~5+ cards from any bank in the last 24 months, you can still be approved for the Chase Hyatt card!
