Ultimate Hyatt Points Transfer Calculators & Guide
Hyatt Points Transfer Calculator to calculate the conversion of Hyatt Points to airline miles and the conversion of Chase Ultimate Rewards to Hyatt Points.
Hyatt Rewards Points can be earned by transferring Ultimate Rewards Points directly to your World of Hyatt account. If you're looking for redemption options, Hyatt Rewards Points can be transferred to over 25 different airline partners with most ratios being 2.5:1. The Hyatt Point Calculators on this page will calculate the conversion of Hyatt Points to and from the World of Hyatt program.
Transferring Hyatt Points To Partners
Hyatt Points can be transferred to over 25 different airline partners. Transferring Hyatt Points to airline partners can be beneficial for anyone looking to top off their miles to earn award travel or for anyone looking for alternative ways to earn miles with their favorite frequent flyer program. Most of these transfers at a ratio of 2.5 Hyatt Points for 1 Mile. This effectively lets you earn at least 2 airline miles per $1 spent at Hyatt Hotels since the base rate is 5 Hyatt Points per $1 spent for basic World of Hyatt members. Those with Hyatt Globalists status using the World of Hyatt Credit Card will be able to earn a max of 10.5 points per $1 spent which, when transferred, is a little over 4 airline miles per $1 spent.
Hyatt Transfer Bonus
World of Hyatt members will receive 5,000 bonus miles for every 50,000 Hyatt Points that are transfered to their airline partners. This the equal to them giving you an additional 12,500 Hyatt Points. If you plan on transferring Hyatt Points to airline partners, I'd recommend transferring in 50,000-point increments so that you can get the maximum value out of your transfer.
Transfer To Partners Calculator
The Hyatt Points Transfer Calculator will calculate the transfer of Hyatt Points between airline partners. You can enter any value of Hyatt Points in the field below and it will output how many miles you will earn when transferring to each program.
Hyatt Points transfers to 6 reward programs under the Skyteam umbrella. Those airlines are:
- Air France-KLM
- China Airlines
- China Eastern Airlines
- Delta Airlines
- Korean Air
With the exception of China Eastern Airlines (which is based on kilometers), all of these transfers at a 2.5:1 ratio. So for every 2,500 Hyatt Points you transfer, you will receive 1,000 airline miles. The most notable airline in this list is Korean Air. SKYPASS Miles can be hard to accumulate since Ultimate Rewards is no longer a direct transfer partner. You can use Hyatt Points (as well as Marriott Bonvoy Points to help build your balance.
Hyatt Points can be transferred to 7 oneworld airline programs. Those airlines are:
- American Airlines
- British Airways
- Cathay Pacific
- Japan Airlines
- LATAM (Multiplus)
- Qantas Air
- Qatar Air
Most of these transfers are at 2.5:1 ratio. The few exceptions are Qantas Air (25:12) and LATAM (5:4). American, Japan, and LATAM are not direct transfer partners of any major bank program, so transferring Hyatt Points to these programs is a good way of adding to your balance.
Lastly, Hyatt's airline partners consists of 8 star alliance members. Those airlines are:
- Air China
- All Nippon Airways (ANA)
- Asiana Airlines
- Singapore Airlines
- Thai Air
- Turkish Air
- United Airlines
Air China, Asiana, and Lufthansa are the only programs in this list that are not direct transfer partners of any major bank rewards program. Using Hyatt Points to top off your miles in those programs can be beneficial.
Other airlines on this list that are not part of the major alliances consists of:
- Hawaiian Airlines
- Jet Air
- Royal Brunei Airlines
- Southwest Airlines
- Virgin Atlantic Airways
Royal Brunei is not a direct transfer partner of any major bank program nor is it a partner of any major U.S.-based hotel program making it hard to earn Royal Skies Miles for anyone looking to earn them.
Hyatt vs Marriott Transfer Partners
Hyatt and Marriott shares over 20 airline partners. Hyatt transfers to 3 airlines that Marriott does not, and those airlines are Lufthansa, Royal Brunei, and China Airlines. On the other hand, there are 16 partners that Marriott transfers to that Hyatt does not.
When it comes down to point transfers, basic World of Hyatt members earn 5 base points per $1 spent at Hyatt which is equal to 2 airline miles with most partners. Basic Marriott Bonvoy members earn 10 points per $1 spent at Marriott hotels which is equal to 3.3 airline miles. When it comes to maxing out earnings with elite status and using co-branded hotel credit cards, Marriott comes out ahead earning 7.83 airline miles per $1 spent (Titanium Status + Marriott Credit Card) while Hyatt loyalists will earn 4.2 airline miles per $1 spent (Hyatt Globalist + Hyatt Credit Card).
Hyatt vs Chase Transfer Partners
Chase Ultimate Rewards Points can be transferred directly to World of Hyatt at a 1:1 ratio. This means you can transfer points to Hyatt from Chase and then transfer your Hyatt points to airlines that aren't direct partners of Chase. Due to the value of Ultimate Rewards Points, I don't recommend converting 2.5 chase points to one airline mile since they are valuable, but I wanted to bring it up because it is an option. There are over 20 airlines that Hyatt transfers to that Chase does not. If you were short 1,000 miles in one of those programs you could choose between transferring 2,500 Ultimate Rewards Points to Hyatt and then to that program or Buying Hyatt Points or buying miles in that specific program (if possible).
Transferring Points To Hyatt
When it comes to earning Hyatt Points through other reward programs, there is only one choice available and that is Chase Ultimate Rewards. There are no other programs that can help top off your World of Hyatt account. Enter any amount of Hyatt Points in the calculator below to see how many points you will need to transfer from the partnering program to equal the amount of specified.
Earning Points With Partner Cards
Listed below are all of the credit cards that you can use to earn World of Hyatt Points. Non-Hyatt credit cards listed in the table will reflect the bonus category earning rate as if the points were transferred to Hyatt (based on the transfer ratio). This will give you an idea of how many points you can earn using Non-Hyatt credit cards and hopefully help you put together the best combination of cards based on the categories you spend in the most.
Chase Sapphire Reserve
The Chase Sapphire Reserve earns 3x points on both travel and dining which transfers at an even 1:1 ratio to Hyatt Points. While you won't beat the World of Hyatt Credit Card on actual Hyatt Spend, you will earn more points across every other travel category including non-Hyatt hotels, airline tickets, tolls, and everything else that Chase considers to be travel. You'll also receive all of the elite travel benefits that comes with holding the Chase Sapphire Reserve such as $300 in travel credits, Priority Pass, excellent trip/travel protection and insurance, and much more.
Chase Ink Business Preferred
The Chase Ink Business Preferred card features the bonus categories of travel, shipping, Internet, cable, phone, and advertisement. It earns the equivalent of 3 Hyatt Points per $1 spent when transferred across all 6 categories giving you the opportunity to earn some serious points. What makes this card even better is that it has a standard sign up bonus of 80,000 points. That's an average value of $1,400+ when transferred to Hyatt and redeemed for award nights.
Chase cardholders who own at least one Ultimate Rewards Point earning card has the ability to convert earned cash back into Ultimate Rewards Points at a 1 cent for 1 point ratio. This opens up great cash back cards like the Chase Freedom which offers 5% back on quarterly rotating categories. This is an easy way to earn the equivalent of 5 Hyatt Points per $1 spent on categories such as grocery, dining, warehouses, and more every quarter.
Other Ways To Earn
Chase's Ultimate Rewards and cash back credit cards are probably the best options when it comes to building lots of Hyatt Points. Outside of using those cards, you have the Chase World of Hyatt Card which can't be beat when used at Hyatt brand hotels. Hyatt also has a handful of travel partners including Avis, American Airlines, and MGM Resorts International. Lastly, you can always purchase Hyatt Points from their Points.com storefront on the Hyatt website.
