Chase offers terrific credit cards with great perks and benefits to use for Big Travel. But tougher application rules have made it more difficult to get approved for many cards issued by Chase.
But certain Chase cards are NOT impacted by the stricter rules. Like the Chase Hyatt card, which gets you 2 free nights at any Hyatt after meeting minimum spending requirements.
The Tougher Chase Application Rules Don’t Apply to ALL Chase Cards! You Can Still Get the Chase Hyatt Card and Earn 2 Free Nights at Any Hyatt Hotel Like the Park Hyatt Sydney!
I’ll explain which Chase cards are not affected by the rules!

The Chase Sapphire Reserve Bonus of 100,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards Points Is Enough for 2 Round-Trip Tickets to Hawaii! Or Transfer Your Points to Hyatt for an Amazing Award Stay
You can earn 100,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points after you spend $4,000 on purchases in the first 3 months after opening your account. That’s worth $1,500 in travel when you redeem through the Chase Ultimate Rewards Travel Portal. And potentially worth even more if you transfer points to airline and hotel partners like Hyatt or Southwest.
I’ll explain why this is a terrific card for folks looking to earn Big Travel!
