Good afternoon everyone, I just received the following email from Hyatt. Chase, Hyatt, and Visa have teamed up to create Hyatt Credit Card Offers (not a very original name). The platform is the same platform that was built for Marriott and Chase Slate. According to the email, Hyatt Credit Card Offers is currently available and will run through July 31. Strange that they would have an end date in mind, but they could extend it if the product is successful and popular. To get started, click here and have your Chase Hyatt Credit Card available.
Good morning everyone, I hope your weekend is going well. I received this screenshot from a reader who participated in a Hyatt survey. For this survey, Hyatt wanted to know if you would redeem 450,000 Hyatt points for a 5 night South African safari package ($3,500 retail value per person). Personally, I do not have 450,000 Hyatt points or 450,000 Chase Ultimate Reward Points, so this option is totally out of my league, but let’s give this redemption a look. $3,500 / 450,000 points = 0.78 cents per point, which is pretty low for Hyatt points. Also, 450,000 Hyatt points could get you 15 nights at top tier category 7 hotels (30,000 Hyatt points per night) or 18 nights at category 6 hotels (25,000 Hyatt points per night). You could also get 90 nights at a budget category 1 hotel (only 5,000 Hyatt points per night).
Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great Easter weekend. Check your American Express accounts for this AMEX Offer: $60 off $200 at Hyatt Regency hotels. I found this offer on my Old Blue Cash, Blue Cash Everyday, and AMEX Everyday credit cards. I did not see this offer on any business cards. Frequent Miler also has a rundown of some of the other newly released AMEX Offers. I don’t have any upcoming Hyatt Regency stays, but I may need to look for some opportunities to use this AMEX Offer.
If you have any questions, please leave a comment below. Have a great day everyone!
Good morning everyone, I apologize for my lack of blog posts recently, but I’ve found myself in somewhat of a miles and points funk. Usually, I’m in an upbeat, positive mood, but lately, I’ve found it hard to get excited about the miles and points game. It seems that everything that I once loved has changed for the worse (that might be a tad dramatic). Let me share what’s on my mind so you can see where I’m coming from. Let’s start with hotels first.
I recently spent 100,000 Radisson Rewards points for 2 nights at the Radisson Blu Crete, and I’m not impressed by the new Radisson Rewards program. Since the free night certificates for spending $10,000 (and $20,000 and $30,000) on the US Bank Club Carlson credit cards are only valid at hotels in the US, it’s not worth spending money on those credit cards. I tried to rally my fellow readers and travel blogger friends by sharing my dissa-point-ment with US Bank and Radisson Rewards on Twitter, but I got no response from either company. I plan on keeping both of my Club Carlson credit cards just for the 40,000 points on my cardmember anniversary.
Hyatt recently got in on the bonus season! Some opportunities to buy points are targeted, and some are publicly available. I’m sure we’d all agree that the public ones are more interesting and worth a look. Through February 23, World of Hyatt is offering a 30% bonus on purchased points. You have to purchase at least 5,000 points in your transaction.
