Hyatt launched their brand new World of Hyatt Visa credit card, which is the newest card to the Chase’s portfolio of co-branded cards, and it has tons of new perks/earning advantages over the Hyatt Credit Card.
One of the best features with this card is the ability to earn elite qualifying night credits through spending, which means World of Hyatt members can now earn top tier Globalist status solely through spending.
Here’s a look at the elite status benefits this card:
- Automatic Discoverist status in World of Hyatt
- 5 qualifying night credits every year
- 2 qualifying night credits after every $5,000 in spend on the card
How to earn Hyatt Globalist Status through spending:
If you’re looking to earn top-tier Hyatt Globalist status, you’re in luck as it’s now possible to earn through spending. Just for having this card, you earn 5 elite qualifying night credits. Hyatt Globalist requires 60 nights to earn the first year, and then 55 nights each thereafter.
If you’re already a Globalist member, you’d need to earn 55 nights. You’d get 5 for having the card, which means you’d need 50 more. Based on the card benefit, that you earn 2 nights for every $5,000 in spending, you’d need to spend $125,000 on the card to earn 50 elite qualifying nights, which then re-qualifies you for Globalist status.
If you’re not already a Globalist member, you’d need to earn 60 nights. You’d get 5 for having the card, which means you’d need 55 more. Based on the card benefit, that you earn 2 nights for every $5,000 in spending, you’d need to spend $140,000 on the card to earn 55 elite qualifying nights, which then earns you for Globalist status
Now in reality, these are both extreme cases because it assumes that you wouldn’t earn a single night from Hyatt on your own, which is unrealistic if you’re looking to get Globalist. Likely the actual amount of spend for this would be significantly less based on the number of stays you have throughout the year.
