Beginning October 1, you’ll experience a few new, and much needed, additions to the Chase Hyatt Visa credit card. Here’s a peek at the email I received:
The new 2x point multiplier bonus for spend at restaurants, airlines and car rentals is something this credit card has needed for quite some time now. Outside of spend at Hyatt hotels, there really wasn’t much incentive to put your spend on this card.
The stay/night credit is an interesting addition. When you put $20,000 in annual spend on the Hyatt Visa, you’ll get 2 stay / 5 night credits. With $40,000 in annual spend on the Hyatt Visa, you’ll get “an additional 3 stay / 5 night credit” which would bring your total credits to 5 stays / 10 nights. That’s not bad if you’re just a few stays/nights away from requalifying. Of course that means you’d also have to be close to the spend threshold on the credit card.
