Frequent Hyatt Hotels guests who have The World Of Hyatt Credit Card can save points on rewards through the end of September. For a limited time, the rewards program is offering a 10% points rebate on awards used between Aug. 1 and Sept. 30.
Formerly known as Hyatt Gold Passport, World of Hyatt allows cardholders to earn and use points at over 700 hotels around the world. Award nights start at 5,000 points, based on hotel category. World of Hyatt also offers some crossover rewards for elite members with MGM Resorts International and United Airlines.

After registering, cardholders can use their points for award nights, discounted nights using Points + Cash rates, room upgrades, or dining and spa services between Aug. 1 and Sept. 30. After using points, cardholders will receive 10% back in bonus points, which will automatically deposit to their account. Potential points earnings on redeemed points are as follows:
- Redeem 5,000 points: Earn 500-point rebate.
- Redeem 15,000 points: Earn 1,500-point rebate.
- Redeem 30,000 points: Earn 3,000-point rebate.
- Redeem 50,000 points: Earn 5,000-point rebate.
The fine print
The promotion is only available to those who have a Hyatt-branded credit card and register before Aug. 31. All points, including those used for hotel nights, must be used by Sept. 30. If an award redemption is connected to a hotel stay, the stay must be completed on or before Sept. 30 to qualify for the 10% bonus.
Only points used at Hyatt properties qualify for the bonus rebate. World of Hyatt points used for Avis rental car award certificates or transferred to airline partners don’t count for the 10% bonus. Finally, the bonus points may take up to eight weeks to appear in an account.
Is it worth it?
Anytime travelers can get points back after using them, it’s a good deal. For those who already have trips planned in August and September, this is a great way to save points on award trips. Be sure to sign up now to take advantage of the full promotional window.
But this promotion is only available to World of Hyatt cardholders. Those who don’t already have the credit card will likely miss out on this bonus unless they apply before Aug. 31 and already have World of Hyatt points to use.
