Holders of The World Of Hyatt Credit Card get an annual free night certificate, good for a Category 1-4 Hyatt hotel or resort, not to mention generous ongoing rewards, plus a rich welcome offer that can be redeemed for an extended stay, a swank getaway, or anything in between.
Using the card at Hyatt properties will score you 4 points per dollar, plus you’ll net an additional 5 points per dollar on those Hyatt expenditures just by being a World of Hyatt member. You’ll also earn 2 points per dollar spent on dining at restaurants, cafes and coffee shops; airline tickets purchased through the airline; fitness club and gym memberships; and local transit and commuting including rideshare services. All other spending earns 1 point per $1.
Keep in mind that the Hyatt portfolio also has a somewhat limited footprint compared with other, larger chains. If your travels don’t typically take you where there’s a Hyatt brand hotel, a stash of free nights won’t mean a thing.
