U.S. Hyatt Credit Card Calculators

The World of Hyatt program has one credit card offered by Chase Bank for those in the United States simply called the World of Hyatt Credit Card. This card offers the best return on Hyatt Points when used at Hyatt Hotels and also offers a solid amount of value across several other bonus categories. Cardholders will also receive great benefits such as an annual free night and complimentary elite status.

Credit Card Comparison Calculators

Comparison Calculators features side by side comparisons of frequently compared credit cards and groups of credit cards. Per the usual, you will be able to calculate total rewards and the cash value of the cards based on monthly/yearly spend, how much you value the card benefits, and any annual fees the card may have. For these calculators, you will only be able to compare results against the cards featured in the comparison.

Redeeming Rewards & Cash Value

Hyatt Points have the best value when redeemed for free nights at Hyatt brand hotels. You can also use them towards stays at MGM Resorts International, Miraval Resorts, and Small Luxury Hotels of the World.

Hyatt Points can also be used for experiences, Lindblad Expeditions, and various other redemptions.

Transfer Partners

Hyatt Points can be transferred to almost 30 different partners which includes airlines such as Delta, American, and United. You can transfer to most Hyatt partners at a 2.5 to 1 ratio meaning every 250 Hyatt Points you transfer will give you 100 airline miles. While Hyatt Points are still best used for free nights at Hyatt hotels, topping off your favorite frequent flyer accounts can be useful if you're a few miles short of a redemption.

U.S.-based members can also transfer points to Hyatt via the Chase Ultimate Rewards Program at a 1:1 ratio. This opens up 7 additional credit cards that can be used to earn Hyatt Points and is the most efficient way to earn lots of Hyatt points quickly through credit card spend and sign up bonuses.

Earning Rewards

Hyatt Points are primarily earned staying at Hyatt brand hotels as well as at Small Luxury Hotels of the World and MGM resort properties. You can earn 5 base points per $1 spent at these properties as well as bonus points from elite status and bonus points when you use the World of Hyatt credit card.

Hyatt Car Partners

Avis is the only car rental partner of Hyatt. When you rent with Avis, you can earn 500 bonus Hyatt Points and up to 25% off the base rates. You can book directly though avis.com and use Hyatt Avis World Discount (AWD) number K817700. If you have an Avis Preferred account, you can also set your earning preferences to World of Hyatt which will make it where you'll earn Hyatt Points on every rental instead of Avis Preferred Points.

If you don't have access to a Hyatt credit card and you're trying to prevent your points from expiring, booking a cheap car rental with Avis is a great way to add Hyatt Points to your account and extend/reset the timer.

Hyatt Airline Partners

World of Hyatt and American Airlines AAdvantage are partnered up to bring you some very nice benefits across both programs for elite members. Hyatt Discoverist, Explorist, and Globalist members can earn 1 bonus Hyatt Point for every $1 (USD) spent on qualifying American Airlines flights. This is in addition to the miles you would normally earn as an AAdvantage member.

If you have AAdvantage Elite Status and Hyatt Elite Status, you can earn even more. Those with status in both programs will also earn 1 bonus AAdvantage Mile per $1 spent on qualifying stays at Hyatt hotels. This is in addition to the Hyatt Points you would normally receive on stays.

Buying Rewards

If you're not able to transfer rewards to the Hyatt account using the Chase Ultimate Rewards Program, your next best option is to buy Hyatt Points.

The standard cost of Hyatt Points is 2.4 cents per point. You can buy as little as 1,000 Hyatt Points for $24 and as many as 55,000 Hyatt Points for $1,320. Buying Hyatt Points to top off your account can be a good idea if you're a few points shy of your next redemption.

Points Purchases Cost Per Point
1,000 - 55,000 Points 2.4 Cents

Hyatt Buy Point Promos

Hyatt Points are on sale a few times per year. This allows you to buy Hyatt Points for heavily discounted prices. Buying Hyatt Points on sale is usually a good deal as you'll be able to redeem them for a higher value than what you paid for them in many instances. You can use these promotions to save money by buying points to redeem towards your stay instead of paying the cash price at many of their hotels.
