Last night, while helping a client map out a personalized credit card application strategy, I was recommending the Chase Hyatt Visa credit card but I couldn’t remember if the $50 statement credit “hack” was still around. After pretending to make a reservation on hyatt.com, sure enough there was an offer for a $50 statement credit on the card in addition to the 2 Free Nights with the annual fee waived for the first year. Basically Chase is paying you$50 to acquire 2 Free Hotel nights – sounds good to me!
Here is how to get the Chase Hyatt Visa credit card with a $50 statement credit which is better than the standard, public offer that does not have this $50 statement credit:
- Log in to your Hyatt Gold Passport Account (you need to do this at some point in the process, I recommending doing it first).
- Pretend to make a reservation at a United States Hyatt hotel. I chose my favorite Hyatt hotel, the Andaz Maui.
- Select any room type and click through to the next page which brings you to the “Complete New Reservation” page
- Scroll all the way down to where it asks for your credit card information. Right next to that should be a box to click with the offer for a $50 statement credit on the Chase Hyatt Visa credit card (see picture below).
- Click that box and then on the next page, click the apply button which will take you to the Chase website with some of your information pre-filled from your Hyatt account. If you didn’t log into your Hyatt account before, it will ask you to do so here.
- You DO NOT need to complete the reservation – feel free to close the reservation page once you apply for the card.
This isn’t groundbreaking news as this offer has been around for a while now but I want to make sure no one is applying for an inferior offer for this card. I don’t see this offer or hack mentioned too often on the blogs, so hopefully this will bring some attention to it.
