INSIDER SECRET: You can use Hyatt free-night certificates at participating Small Luxury Hotel (SLH) locations. There are several different ways to earn free nights at Hyatts.
If you’ve got the The World of Hyatt Credit Card you earn up to 9x Hyatt points per dollar spent at Hyatt: 5x base points for being a Hyatt member and 4x bonus points for paying with your Hyatt card. Now this benefit is being extended to participating Small Luxury Hotels locations.
When you pay for your SLH stay with a World of Hyatt Credit Card you’ll earn the same 4x bonus points and 5x base points as a Hyatt member. Previously the 4x bonus points didn’t apply to SLH purchases. If you happen to have the old Hyatt credit card (no longer available to new applicants), you’ll earn 3x bonus points for spending at participating SLH partners for a total of 8x Hyatt points.
You don’t need to register for this perk, it is now automatically part of your card benefits.
Hyatt Credit Card Bonus at Participating SLH Properties
- 25,000 bonus Hyatt points after you spend $3,000 on purchases in the first three months of opening your account
- Another 25,000 bonus Hyatt points after you spend an additional $3,000 on purchases within the first six months of opening your account
The card does have an $95 annual fee, but it comes with a Category 1-4 free-night certificate each year you renew the card. In addition to the bonus points on purchases mentioned previously, the World of Hyatt card has these perks:
- 2 Hyatt points per $1 on restaurants, on airline tickets purchased directly from the airlines, on local transit and commuting and on fitness club and gym memberships
- 1 Hyatt point per $1 on everything else
- Automatic Hyatt Discoverist status
- 5 elite night credits every year and 2 elite night credits for every $5,000 you spend on the card
- No foreign transaction fees
