A few days ago, I activated my Hyatt Visa credit card, and had an interesting experience with the agent I spoke with about a potential 50,000 point bonus on the card, in lieu of the 2 free-nights at any property worldwide.
Apparently, according to Hyatt, such an offer does not exist, and has not existed for several years. I received a kind message from their corporate communications department informing me of the current offers:
The only Hyatt Credit Card offers currently available are:
- 2 free nights at Hyatt properties worldwide in any category after you spend $1,000 in purchases in the first 3 months after account opening, which is available to travelers who open an account
- 20% of your Hyatt Gold Passport points back after you redeem, which is available to all current Hyatt Credit Card members who register by March 31, 2015
As you know, current Hyatt Credit Card members also receive 1 free night every year after their cardmember anniversary to be used at any category 1-4 Hyatt property as an annual benefit of Hyatt Credit Card membership. Separately, for further clarification, Hyatt has not issued any recent targeted promotions to Hyatt Credit Card members.
It sounds like the colleague with whom you spoke may have been initially confused during the call but clarified the available offer before ending the call.
After posting the potential 50,000 offer, I received several comments from folks saying that they were more a fan of that offer, instead of the 2 free-nights offer, which, in some ways, I agree with, now understanding their opinions. Unfortunately, according to Hyatt, such an offer doesn’t currently exist, so for clarification, it’s only possible to receive the 2 free nights on the card, and no equivalent of bonus points.
