Do you have a case of wanderlust? Are you constantly dreaming of where you’ll travel next, whether it’s just a weekend getaway or a month-long excursion?

If you answered “yes,” here’s the next important question: Are your credit card purchases getting you travel rewards and maximizing the dollars you spend on travel and hotels? No? Well, good news! Chase just announced some additional benefits for the Hyatt Rewards Credit Card.

Hyatt Rewards Credit Card – Earn Free Hotel Stays Faster

This credit card comes with a great signup bonus for the travel-hungry. After spending $1,000 in the first three months of card membership, you’ll get two free nights at Hyatt properties worldwide. After you’ve earned the bonus, plan your trip by purchasing your plane tickets directly through the airline and pay with your Hyatt Credit Card. Why? You’ll earn two Hyatt Gold Passport points for every $1 spent. This also applies to restaurants and rental car agencies. For all other purchases, you’ll get one Hyatt Gold Passport point. In addition, there’s no limit on the amount of points you can earn.

The Hyatt Credit Card could be a good choice for the world traveler for two more reasons: it comes with EMV chip-and-signature technology and no foreign transaction fees. This card does have a $75 annual fee, but that could be easily offset by rewards earned.

So, to summarize, here’s what you get with the Hyatt Rewards Credit Card:

  • 2 free nights at Hyatt properties worldwide after spending $1,000 within the first three months of card membership
  • 3 Hyatt Gold Passport points for every $1 spent at Hyatt
  • 2 Hyatt Gold Passport points for every $1 spent at restaurants, at car rental agencies and on airline tickets purchased directly through the airline
  • 1 Hyatt Gold Passport point for every $1 spent everywhere else

What are you waiting for, world traveler? If this sounds like the card for you, apply now!

  1. I used my Hyatt Visa in Costa Rica because there are no foreign currency transaction fees. However, when I got my statement, one of the vendors put charges through as a cash advance rather than a credit charge. This resulted in a $10 fee and $0.50 interest charge. I called Hyatt VISA and their solution was to call the vendor in Costa Rica and have them reverse the entry and to reenter as a credit charge. This obviously is impractical and I had no idea that this card even had a cash advance feature. All of my other transactions came through as credit charges as I intended. Even after talking to the supervisor Susi, Hyatt VISA refused to be helpful and would not reverse the minor fees or offer any other viable solution. In frustration, I told them to cancel the card. Totally worthless customer service.:mad:
