My Hyatt Credit Card is not the flashiest card in my wallet or the one that gets the most use, but it is a card that I don’t want to ever give it up. The card has a $75 annual fee, but each year I keep it I get a Category 1-4 hotel night that I consistently use somewhere that is selling for at least $150 – $200 per night. Not only that, but the Hyatt Credit Card just keeps at it with valuable promos that way more than offset what I pay each year to keep the card.
Earn a $30 Statement Credit With New Hyatt Credit Card Promo
A new promo that just launched today will give Hyatt Credit Cardholders a $30 statement credit if they spend a cumulative total of $300+ on the card at US grocery stores and/or drug stores from February 1 – February 28, 2018. You can only earn one statement credit per cardmember and it will appear in your Chase account within 6-8 weeks of spending the $300.
You need to have your Hyatt Credit Card number and World of Hyatt numbers available to register for the promotion. We have two Hyatt Credit Cards in our household, so this promo may save us $60 in groceries this month if we spend an eligible $300 on each card by February 28th.
I love this promo since pretty much all families spend money at the grocery store and we could all use some money back for those purchases. In terms of the promo working correctly, we had no problems using a similar promo they ran with Whole Foods last summer. However, I have to mention that the last similar promo that was offered by the Hyatt Credit Card for paid stays at Hyatt House or Hyatt Place was not executed quite as seamlessly or quickly as the Whole Foods promo.
Towards the end of 2017, there was a promo that awarded a $50 statement credit on the Hyatt credit card if you spent $300 at Hyatt House of Hyatt Place properties in the United States on that card. We did that by mid-December and now in early February still haven’t seen the $50 statement credit. While some had the credit post within a few days, I know of others who have had a big delay like us. The terms do say allow 6-8 weeks for the credit, but usually these sort of things post within a few days. I’m waiting for the full 8 weeks to elapse to follow-up on that particular promo again with Chase, but hopefully, it is just slow to post and not something you have to truly chase down.
Perhaps this new promo will work much faster since most of us with families can easily spend $300 in a month on groceries – just be sure and register your card for the promotion before your next trip to a US grocery or drug store!
