One of the World of Hyatt credit cards just souped up its welcome offer — allowing new card members to earn more bonus points than before.

The World of Hyatt Business Credit Card offers up to 75,000 bonus points for the new promotion. Here’s how it works:

  • Earn 60,000 bonus points after you spend $5,000 on purchases in your first three (3) months from account opening
  • Then, earn an additional 15,000 bonus points after you spend $12,000 total within the first six (6) months of account opening

Just a few days ago, the card offered only 60,000 bonus points — without the 15,000 points kicker. This offer expires on March 6, 2024.

Hyatt Places can offer fantastic point redemptions (they’re very good properties — especially at 8,000 points or even less. That’s a steal.). If you can find one at a port city, those 75,000 bonus points will go a long way.

And here’s a cool feature: you can gift Discoverist status to up to five additional cardholders! The primary cardholder also receives Discoverist status as long as they’re a cardholder.

Cardholders can earn up to $100 in Hyatt statement credits, too. When you spend $50 or more at any Hyatt property, you’ll earn a $50 statement credit. You can take advantage of this perk two times per anniversary year! That about halves the card’s $199 annual fee.

And suppose you want extra nights toward elite status. In that case, you can earn five (5) Tier-Qualifying night credits toward status and Milestone rewards for every $10,000 you spend on eligible purchases during a calendar year.

The card does not feature an annual free night award. That’s pretty much my only knock against it.

Points earnings-wise, here’s how the World of Hyatt Business Credit Card breaks down:

  • 9X total points per $1 spent on Hyatt stays
  • 2X per $1 spent in your top three (3) spend categories each quarter (through 12/31/24) then your top two categories each quarter. Eligible categories:
    • Airline tickets purchased directly from airlines
    • Internet, cable, and phone services
    • Dining
    • Gas stations
    • Car rental agencies
    • Local transit and commuting
    • Social media and search engine advertising
    • Shipping
  • 2X at fitness clubs and on gym memberships
  • 1X on all other eligible purchases

The World of Hyatt Business Credit Card is a Chase product — so you’re subject to the 5/24 rule. Chase will look at your personal credit card approvals during the past 24 months. But being approved for the World of Hyatt Business Credit Card shouldn’t affect your credit because it’s a business card.

“I don’t want to get it because it’s a small business card!”

Some people get skeeved about small business credit cards. Here’s the thing: you don’t need a big, fancy office and haul in millions of dollars to qualify as a small business. Just look at René and me! 🙂

One of my family members records voiceovers for small events and gets paid a few bucks. That’s a small business.

People who sell stuff on eBay — small business. I know someone who self-publishes short stories on Amazon. They’re a small business. My brother-in-law drives rideshares. He’s a small business. You get the point.

But you’re not getting points if you stay away from business credit cards. How many people with side hustles just fooled themselves out of the best-ever Ink card bonuses that expired a couple of days ago?

Plus, it’s much easier to keep track of your business expenses when you put your business spending on a small business credit card instead of a personal credit card.

Time to Set Sail!

The World of Hyatt Business Credit Card offers up to 75,000 bonus points. The offer expires in early March — which will be here before we know it. So, jump on the promotion ASAP if you’re interested!
