The World of Hyatt credit card is currently offering a couple of different sign-up bonuses. However, which bonus should you go for? Let’s have a look.
World of Hyatt Credit Card Offers
Before we compare both the offers, let’s see what’s similar. Both offers carry the same $95 fee. Also, with both these offers, you’ll get 10 elite night credits instead of the usual 5 for qualifying for the next status tier in 2020 and 2021. All other benefits like category spend bonuses as well as annual free nights for category 1-4 after renewing the card and another for spending $15,000 during a cardmember year remain the same. You can view both the offers here.
Chase welcome bonus restrictions also apply to both the offers.
The product is not available to either (i) current Cardmembers of any Hyatt Credit Card, or (ii) previous Cardmembers of any Hyatt Credit Card who received a new Cardmember bonus within the last 24 months.

|Offer 1||Offer 2|
|Welcome Bonus Offer||50,000 Points||1 free night + $200|
|Min. Spend Required||$6,000||$3,000|
|Time to meet min. spend||6 months||3 months|
If you go for Offer 1, then please note that Offer 1 has a tiered spending requirement. You’ll earn 25,000 World of Hyatt points after you spend $3,000 in the first three months. You’ll earn an additional 25,000 World of Hyatt points after you spend a total of $6,000 in the first 6 months. Conversely, with offer 2, you only have to spend $3,000 to earn the welcome bonus. You’ll earn the $200 statement credit after you make the first purchase on your card.
Additionally, if you want stack up on Hyatt points, you can always buy them from Hyatt’s website. Currently, Hyatt is selling points on their website with a 30% bonus.
The Pundit’s Mantra
So which offer should you go for? Firstly, if you can only spend $3,000, then Offer 2 is the one you should go for. Secondly, if you have an immediate stay coming up at a Hyatt, then Offer 2 could be your best bet. Finally, if you value the $200 statement credit more than points, the Offer 2 is your obvious choice.
However, I still find Offer 1 to be a better option, at least for me. With travel largely down, I’d rather stack up points instead of free nights that have an expiration date. Also, while the $6,000 spend requirement may be higher, you have 6 months to meet it.
