The World of Hyatt Credit Card is upping the ante for existing cardholders and new applicants with a limited-time promotion and an increased sign-up bonus.

The promotion rewards you more generously the more often you use your card on eligible purchases. The tiered sign-up bonus offers rewards in two parts, and the total amount you stand to earn depends on your spending.

February spending bonus

Earn up to 5,000 points on eligible purchases over $1 from Feb. 1 to 28, 2021. The amount you can earn depends on the number of transactions you make during the month:

  • Earn 1,000 points for making 10 transactions.

  • Earn 2,500 points for making 25 transactions.

  • Earn 5,000 points for making 50 or more transactions.

You can register for this offer until Feb. 28, 2021. As long as you register by Feb. 28, all qualifying purchases made in February will count toward the promotion. Holders of the former Hyatt Credit Card who are waiting for World of Hyatt Credit Card to arrive can use their existing card for this promotion.

You can also combine these points with the World of Hyatt Bonus Journeys global promotion (registration closed on Jan. 15, 2021), which allows participants to earn quadruple bonus points on spending at participating World of Hyatt locations worldwide, plus double the credits toward elite status for every night’s stay.

You can earn all these additional points on top of the card's ongoing rewards, which include:

  • 9 points per $1 for Hyatt stays.

  • 2 points per $1 on transit and commuting, dining, flights purchased directly from the airline, and fitness club and gym memberships.

  • 1 point per $1 on all other purchases.

New sign-up bonus

World of Hyatt Credit Card is also getting a refreshed sign-up bonus beginning Jan. 29, 2021. It's a tiered offer that breaks down this way:

Earn up to 60,000 bonus points (up to 12 free nights):

  • 30,000 bonus points after spending $3,000 on purchases within the first 3 months from account opening;

  • Plus, up to 30,000 more bonus points by earning 2 bonus points total per $1 spent on purchases that normally earn 1 bonus point, on up to $15,000 in the first six months of account opening

Previously, the card offered up to 50,000 points — 25,000 points after you spent $3,000 in three months, and 25,000 more after you spent $6,000 in six months.

New cardholders are also eligible to participate in the February spending bonus promotion as long as they register their card by Feb. 28, 2021.
