Title: Chase Hyatt Visa Master Thread
Post by: Dan on August 05, 2010, 05:28:49 PM
Click Here (http://o1.qnsr.com/cgi/r?;n=203;c=1650124;s=7273;x=7936;f=201801081732510;u=j;z=TIMESTAMP;src=640117;) to get more details on this card and compare to other cards!

The rumor when they announced this card was that they were going to offer a signup bonus, plus a free FFN every year just for having the card, plus a number of suite upgrades that could even be used on award stays, plus a loyalty bonus of 1-2K points for every stay you've made at Hyatt over the past 2 years.

Here's hoping at least some of those stuff some true!

It would've been nice of a company with such amazing customer relations, picked a bank that had a similar reputation.

If you look at it from their perspective, maybe companies pick chase because they screen so many people out including those who sign up just for the sign up bonuses. I cant stand the fact that amex and others will approve someone who has credit while chase will deny you because you got a card from them within 6 months (although i saw dan wrote somewhere that they may have stopped that)

They all have bad reputations.
Who is better? AMEX? Citi? Barclay?
Personally I'm happy with Chase-I find them to be the easiest churn these days.

I find AMEX much easier to deal with. As of now I've dealt with Citi and Barclay only minimally.

It just pisses me off that I got black listed because of their error. Oh well, I guess that's what wives are for.

AMEX is notorious for giving people exactly 5 days to send over all of their tax forms or be shut down...not exactly the hallmark of a customer friendly company.

They probably dont want to give you to much time to make things up or figure a way out (in the event that their suspicions are correct)

Post by: moish on December 09, 2010, 02:59:57 AM
so, as a diamond member, ive been getting emails from hyatt with the offer of opening the cc for two nights in a suite. the question is, as im slated to lose my diamond status at the end of feb, if i were to open the card before and get the suite credits, would i be able to still get the suite once my status reverts back to regular member?

I tried asking that to the Hyatt rep on FT and didn't get a response.
You can try emailing Hyatt CS and see what they say.
Let us know!

Post by: eliteflyer on December 09, 2010, 01:05:29 PM
The T & Cs in my e-mail included the following note:
"Receive two nights – To be eligible for this bonus offer, you must be an existing Hyatt Gold Passport Diamond member at the time of application. You will qualify for and receive two Hyatt Gold Passport® Suite Upgrade Free Night Awards after your first use of the card. First use includes purchases, balance transfers, or any checks that are used to access your account, and excludes cash advances. Suite Upgrade Free Night Awards are valid at participating Hyatt hotels and resorts for use within one year from date of issuance. Suites are not available at all Hyatt locations. Award may not be used with all suite types. Awards are not transferable. After qualifying, please allow 10 days for your Suite Upgrade Free Night Awards to post to your Hyatt Gold Passport account. For complete terms and conditions, see goldpassport.com. Chase is not responsible for offer fulfillment. Annual fee applies. For pricing details, please see Pricing & Terms.

(Emphasis added)
I would keep this and use it as evidence that the offer is available as long as you were a diamond when you applied. The counter argument is that its necessary to be a diamond member not only when you want to redeem it, but also, when you apply for the card.

Is there a spend requirement or is it two nights with first purchase?
Title: Re: Chase Hyatt Visa To Be Released Within 1-2 Months!
Post by: Dan on February 10, 2011, 12:52:29 PM
Is there a spend requirement or is it two nights with first purchase?
No spend requirement.
No forex fee.
1 point per dollar, 3 points per dollar spent with Hyatt.
Hyatt hotels go from category 1 (5K points) to category 6 (22K points).  So while a top-tier hotel with Starwood might go for 70,000 points per night, top-tier Hyatt hotels are only 22K points.
Downside is you don't have the great airline transfer option like Starwood has and there's no cash and points.
Both chains have no blackout dates and guaranteed standard room award availability.

Non-elites (at the time of application) will get 2 free nights systemwide.  Use 'em at Park Hyatts in Paris, Zurich, Milan, Tokyo, Sydney, etc. that go for $1,000/night.  Not bad for a $75 fee.

There are no resort fees or taxes on Hyatt award bookings.

Non-elites will also get upgraded for free to Hyatt Platinum as long as they have the card.  This gets you free internet on all Hyatt stays, free room upgrades, expedited check-in line, late check-out, bonus points on every stay, platinum extra bonus points every 3 stays, guaranteed room avaialbility, etc.

Platinums (at the time of application) get 2 free nights in any hotel plus they get 2 suite upgrades good for up to 7 nights each.

Diamonds (at the time of application) get 2 free nights in a suite in any Hyatt hotel.

Hyatt will match status for 60 days so match before applying!  If you have a CO PP card get the Hyatt Platinum that the PP card gets you before applying for the Hyatt card.

Post by: Dan on February 10, 2011, 01:13:24 PM

1 year from when you make your first purchase.
You should see the 2 free nights in your account about 1 week after making your first purchase.

It seems like points from spending are posting as "base" points (and not "bonus" points)
This means they should qualify towards earning lifetime Diamond status.

No, that's a common misconception.
You just need to have had 10 years as a Hyatt member.  You could have been non-elite for all those years, once you get 1 million base points (and have been a member for 10 years) you earn lifetime diamond.

Very appealing with the suite upgrade, those are more than $1000 rooms! Here's a question- if I have the PP card and my wife is an authorized user, can she get the Hyatt Platinum and then I'll apply for the Hyatt card on her account? I already have 5 Chase cards, just got the latest one last week, and she has only two.

I've now got Hyatt Diamond and am wondering how useful the 2 upgrades to a suite would be for me. I wouldnt spend $200 on a room in order to get upgraded to a suite. Is there a possibilty of booking a not so expensive room, say in the tri state area and upgrading it? I looked at hyatt.com but could not come up with anything. (Otherwise, I'd have my wife apply, she has only two chase cards, I have 5-6). Any ideas?

If you are Hyatt Diamond the Hyatt Visa Signature card  (http://www.dansdeals.com/go/Hyatt/)gets you 2 free nights in a suite, you don't have to pay anything.
This is besides for the 4 suite upgrades you have for being Diamond that work only on paid rates.

Do the two free suites with the card only apply if i am a platinum before i apply. or after i get platinum by signing up to the card they will give me 2 suite upgrades and i can use those together with my 2 free nights that i get for signing up fr the card?

Also will anyone match my Fairmont Platinum enabling me to get Hyatt Platinum before I apply?

Hyatt Gold is not an elite level.  Call back and ask for Platinum at least in order to do the challenge...

Do the two free suites with the card only apply if i am a platinum before i apply. or after i get platinum by signing up to the card they will give me 2 suite upgrades and i can use those together with my 2 free nights that i get for signing up fr the card?

Also will anyone match my Fairmont Platinum enabling me to get Hyatt Platinum before I apply?
It goes by your status before getting the card.  All laid out here: http://www.dansdeals.com/forums/index.php?topic=3204.msg60284#msg60284

Platinums (at the time of application) get 2 free nights in any hotel plus they get 2 suite upgrades good for up to 7 nights each.

Diamonds (at the time of application) get 2 free nights in a suite in any Hyatt hotel.

Hyatt will match status for 60 days so match before applying!  If you have a CO PP card get the Hyatt Platinum that the PP card gets you before applying for the Hyatt card.
This needs to be checked out more,I called Priority Club to status match to my fairmont plat, and over the phone the CSR upgraded me to plat without a email or fax, faxed over a screenshot to hyatt and they gave me a  60 day Trial Diamond offer,
does anyone have experience with Priority Club?

-Fax a screenshot of Priority Club Platinum to Hyatt to get Hyatt Diamond
-Apply for a Hyatt Visa (http://www.dansdeals.com/go/Hyatt/) and get 2 free nights in a suite worldwide.
-Get SPG to match Hyatt Diamond to SPG Platinum

I picked up the Chase Hyatt card at the end of February and used it on my recent trip abroad. Now that I have my 2 free nights in my GP account will they get taken away if I cancel the card before redeeming the free nights?

(This is not practical just yet because I have plenty of time before needing to cancel, but wondering in case I want more Chase cards in the future and I max out)

Doubtful. Unlike Amex MR, the Hyatt account is with Hyatt and the CC account is with Chase.

Okay, got this one too from your link. Not instant approval (since this is my 5th chase in 12 months) but not too hard either, i called them and they did not ask me to close any other cards like they did previously. I do use chase as my main card besides having a good score.

So I know to use the two free nights anywhere, wondering if I can get use out of the two free upgrades (since I'm Platinum already.) Apologize that I asked this before, but I don't usually spend alot on hotels, in the $100 range, are there types of Hyatts where a regular room can be had for that and the hotel has suites? East coast area. Tried to search but could not get anywhere. Thanks

The 2 nights need to be actually be used within 1 year.
However the clock only starts counting from when you first use the card, not from when you get the card.

Why not get the status match if you can to get a suite?

I have never had Priority Club OR Hyatt Gold.  I just signed up for both online.

Dan gave some Steps a couple of posts back whereas step #1 was to call Priority Club and tell them to give you Platinum status based on a top-tier status in another program.

--Does Priority Club REQUIRE a screen shot or any other kind of substantiating documentation or can one simply just call and say "I have Platinum/Diamond status at ****" and then they'll just match it?

Why would the time of the 'update' (usually known as a status match) matter with regards to the free nights? So long as you have status when you make the reservation, it won't matter when your status is from.

I called up Priority Club yesterday to try to get Platinum Status (based on a Promo that ended 12/31/10) and they were absolutely terrible on the phone - worst customer service....ever.  (And yes, I am referring to BOTH the cust srvc agent AND her supervisor, who couldn't speak English well)

I then called Hyatt up to status match a Hilton Honors Diamond status and found "Chris" to be a moron.  He stated that the 2 free nights in a Hyatt hotel are ONLY given the first year as a promo - NOT YEARLY - aka 2 free nights. given one time only. period. 

THEN, he contradicted himself and said "If you status match to Diamond, then apply for CC, then you'll get 2 suites as opposed to 2 standard rooms.  But, know that your status match is only good for the year so even though you'll get 2 suites this year, you will lose status (assuming I dont stay X nights/year) in the upcoming year and then you'll only get 2 standard rooms until your status goes up again"

I thought that status match to Hyatt Diamond or Hyatt Platinum THEN apply for CC would guarantee you that "status" for hotel rooms yearly, even if you lose your actual Hyatt status in a later year...

SO:
1) Is it 2 nights first year only, or yearly (Chris said both, lol)
2) Are the standard room/suite 2 nights a year based on
   a) Status at time of App
   b) Status of your Hyatt Account during the year you get the award (ie. Suite in year 1, standard in years 2-5, suite in year 6, etc..)

Care to elaborate please?
sorry. i had to complete a survey, open the priority club cc, stay at 2 brands, stay 2 saturdays and or 10 stays. i did all except 10 stays(you're allowed 4 out of 5) and walked away with 170,000 points! Everyones "cases" were different though.

Booked award tickets for my wife and myself to Kauai and was hoping to get approved for Chase Hyatt on my trifecta and stay at Grand Hyatt. I got the sapphire, United, but wasn't able to budge the Hyatt one after several attempts. This is with credit freeze since my Experian is done for next 6 months.

Freaking out because I just checked how much a few nights are at Grand Hyatt w/o 2 free nights.

Question is, if I can't manage to pull off Chase Hyatt with my wife (she was just approved for Sappire and united last month and has no clue about this trip), any my father (or mother)gets approved for this card (same last name of course), is it a no brainer to make reservation under his (or her) name and me check in? Would I have to add myself as guest on reservation after reservation is made? How would you handle it?

Thanks

Transfer Points as Awards
Transfer your Hyatt Gold Passport Awards to anyone. It’s a great gift idea or an easier way to plan a vacation with family and friends.

I see once I transfer points over to Hyatt, they're valued less to transfer back to miles. I have a trip in January to Kauai and trying to get Hyatt Card (just did trifecta with credit freeze and they have had it with me for now). At the same time, don't want to wait until last minute to make reservation. When would you say I should play it safe by and transfer Sapphire points to Hyatt and not risk missing reservation opportunity?

I'm thinking trifecta with a credit freeze might result in three inquires (since they are pulled manually), what was your experience like?

Play it safe? How long does it take to transfer Sapphire to Hyatt? I'd figure it's pretty quick, no?

I got one pull but they tore apart by credit report and it was painful. I ended up geeting 2 out of 3 but they were done with me. Might need to give them 6 month break which will cut it close with KAuai trip. Do I just play it safe and book now and worse comes to worse I have extra 44K in account?

If they only look at your report would that increase my chances for instant approval if my freeze leads them to my other report with a much higher score?
Or by default do all frozen reports get reviewed?

I'm guessing (not sure at all) that when your default bureau is frozen they have to manually pull the reports, this is why when some people have frozen EX they got inquiries on both TU an EQ.

Post by: Spiffster on June 19, 2011, 01:48:26 AM
Three "manual" inquiries on the same day _should_ still get combined by the bureau.  Not going to test it though...

Also, they may not all go to the same "other" bureau.

I'm thinking that with CC issuers that allow it, I can apply much more often by playing around with the freezes, even with the $5.41 fee each time I remove it it'll probably be worth it, there might even be a way to circumvent that too.

All these posts about freezing should probably be moved to a freezing thread, what do you guys think?

Yes, they pulled 5 Experians in last 12 months, but they didn't mention pulls. They did mention 15 new card in last .... months which they never did to me before on Experian. My problem was I have a high HELOC balance which I'm paying 1 point below prime and they made a big deal that I haven't lowered the debt on it in 5 years. I tried to explain that I use the money for investment urposes....to take advantage of low rate.....but they didn't want to hear of it.  They also never did that with Experian. I have had 3 Chase cards in last 6 months. That led me to beleive that they were scrutinizing me more but maybe just speculatingand YMMV.

Diamonds (at the time of application) get 2 free nights in a suite in any Hyatt hotel.

Yes, I agree -- terrible people, them.

But, those people aren't the same as ones who:

1) Off-handedly asked if Hyatt still matched and was told that there was a corporate policy against it; and
2) Initially got denied when requesting a status match via email; and
3) Followed up via fax with a long, professional letter about wanting to bring my business to Hyatt yadda yadda yadda; and
4) (most importantly) Received the status match about 40 mins ago.

That being said,  I will make sure to follow up on DansDeals proper.

Will do. But, now, I probably have to wait 30 days.

I applied (and was approved) for the BA 100k deal on 5/1.

Then, today, after seeing the Sapphire 100k deal, I applied, but "application pending." (When would you suggest calling Chase and following up on that app? I would hate to miss out on the 50k match.)

Do you think I should wait (30 days?) to apply for the Hyatt? After all the Diamond match lasts 60 days...

Thoughts?

EDIT: From my credit report, it looks like the BA inquiry was done on 4/11 and not 5/1.

AJK--IF 30 DAYS PAST ,APPLY!

I just got my sapphire card with 50.0 abt 2 weeks ago ( waited 30 days from BA card )-- sent e/m got raised to 100, NO PROBLEM

I too want to apply for the Hyatt card ( still trying to get diamond match )will wait a week or two to see if I get diamond , I will just keep trying !

I also got  BA 100.0 -about 6 weeks ago ---

I "think" everything is based on your credit score and not so much as when received last card ,assuming your pulls are not crazy.


I am thinking of doing a chase business card as do not see great offers for biz cards

keep in mind -CHASE---is hungry  for credit card customers ,why else all the great deals , while they want you is the time to sign up .

You should've waited for your Hyatt status to post and applied for the Hyatt card the same time as the Sapphire to limit your credit hits.

You can call Chase whenever you feel like it.  Either it will be too early or it wont be.
I don't see the Hyatt offer expiring in the next 30 days.

Agreed  :-[ -- I'm an idiot, I just didn't think after being rejected twice that I'd be successful in getting the Hyatt status match. I live, I learn.

Great - I'll call now. Do you recommend one chase number over the other? In other words, which number would you use? --

Same boat as in AJK. I called Chase at their app status check: Chase: 800-432-3117 (Application status), and they said that they will notify me in writing within 2 weeks. Does that usually mean a rejection? :(

Definitely does not mean an automatic rejection. Sometimes they wait the 2 weeks (or up to 30 days) and then give an approval.

However, even in you get rejected, Chase has a wonderful reconsideration department (from what I've read), so you'll have another shot that way.

Many thanks. Turns out I was approved. No haggling needed.

When I asked for the card to be overnighted to me, though, they said it's being setup in the "benefits department" and there is no way to expedite that process. Agent told me two weeks to receive, but it may very well be sooner than that.

Here's to hoping it shows up in my online Chase profile soon so I can get 50k.

Thanks all

Match before. That way, you will get two free rooms in a *suite* instead of standard rooms.

Methinks different reps enforce different policies (or enforce the same policies differently).

Hight have to do with creating a Hyatt number? Who knows. Chase does this all the time, there's a certain processing-time window/status during which they won't let you recon. that app.

Now my debate is whether to close the hyatt card anyway to save myself from the annual fee or to just chalk it up as "business" expense.

Right, right - forgot. With regard to keeping/cancelling, why would you keep? Do you have a particular reason to keep it alive, e.g. stay at Hyatt a lot?

The only other reason you may want to keep it, AFAIK, would be to use it as a bargaining chip for your next round of application(s).

If you cancel, let us know if you succeed in getting the fee removed.

Truth is I don't plan on staying in hyatts much more than my 2 free nights. The reason I was thinking to keep it open was in order not to drop that credit line. Also Dan has a good point about cardholder deals. I actually remember seeing on FT about cardholder specials on the anniversary of the hyatt card.

If that's so it looks as though the free nights are given based on the status of your account (diamond/platinum/etc) when they are earned, and not as of when you applied.

Does anyone know when my Hyatt Platinum status (obtained from the Hyatt Visa) will eventually expire if I cancel my card?  I.e., is it like airline status, where if you qualify after a date (e.g., July 1, year 1), it expires in February of year 3? 

I got my card in October.  When the fee comes due, I plan on cancelling (b/c I have the Sapphire card).  However, I'll drag my feet for 60 days if it extends my Hyatt Plat status.

That ought to cover the $75 fee. 

Will those who already have the card receive that free night as well?

I wish they gave you the option to pay a little more to use the free night at a Cat 5 or 6.  E.g., $30 more to use at Cat 5 and $60 more for a Cat 6.

Yup, but there are plenty of very nice cat. 4 hotels that would all prob be 5-6 with SPG for example.

Title: Is it worth keeping the Hyatt card?
Post by: Moishebatchy on August 10, 2011, 09:40:40 AM
Hi all,

After my wife's Hyatt card arrived, I noticed that they bill the annual fee the first year (for some reason, I thought the first year was free like many other Chase cards). This makes it significantly less appealing. So I was wondering... once I get my signup bonus, is it really worth keeping the card? I can earn Hyatt points and pay no forex fees using my Sapphire Preferred... so what else does the Hyatt card do for me that makes it worth the hefty annual fee?

Hefty? $75 for 2 hotel nights anywhere in the world. Sounds like a good deal to me.

He's asking if its worth it to keep the card AFTER he gets the two nights. Chase has been known to refund AF's up 30 days after the issuance, IIRC.

In other words, he needs to ask himself if the hyatt status and 1 FN at a Cat 1-4 hotel is worth it for $75.

Haven't heard of anyone attempting to churn this card yet.
Typically with Chase you should close out the previous card before churning but I think I want to keep this card so that's why I didn't include it in my latest 3BM.

If you cancel and reapply you'll have the card again. Assuming you are not attempting to accumulate Hyatt points, what could be the reason not to churn?

I had the card and closed it down because I decided with the yearly fee it wasn't worth it for me but now with the free night a year benefit I'd like to get it again. I still haven't used my 2 free nights. How would you recommend to try churning the card? Should I open a seperate Hyatt account? Will they combine them for me later on?

The problem is if I do try with my same Hyatt number and they don't offer me the two free nights it doesn't mean you wouldn't get it otherwise.     I'm thinking maybe to try applying with no number. And then after call up and tell them... "Oh whoops I forgot to put my number and I'm a diamond so I get two free suites...etc"

 Trying to figure out the best way to go about this.  What do you think?

You can probably even cancel the card before you use the nights and they'd still stay on your Hyatt account. You have to cancel within 60 days to get your annual fee back.

On the subject of the Hyatt card, question to throw out there for the experts:

I got the Hyatt card in September so I got the 2 free nights and Platinum status. I then got an Amex Platinum giving me Starwood Gold Status which (correct me if I'm wrong) Hyatt will match for Diamond status trial for 60 days.

If I'm going to Kauai in January (12-19) should I wait until 60 days before my check-in date to ask for the Diamond status trial or can I get it now, book as a Diamond and then get the benefits without actually being a Diamond at the time of my stay?

That's not good. Anyone know the easiest way to get Hyatt to match? And assuming I can get it, my OP question still stands: when do I ask Hyatt to match to Diamond?

Thanks!

Hyatt matches HH Gold to Hyatt Diamond.  I got HH Gold from the AMEX Surpass card.  Dan has mentioned in the past that YMMV from HH Gold -> Hyatt Diamond if you have 0 Hilton stays.  I had 1 stay on my HH account when I got matched last month.

Being Diamond at the time of your reservation won't help, so ideally you should request the SM 2-3 weeks before your stay. Matching 60 days before your stay definitely won't help you as it will expire just before your stay.

Are you referring to the 2 free nights from signing up for the credit card? If so, you received 2 award nights in a suite, but you will not get diamond amenities during the stay, if your status has expired.

If you are Hyatt Diamond the Hyatt Visa Signature card  (http://www.dansdeals.com/go/Hyatt/)gets you 2 free nights in a suite, you don't have to pay anything.
This is besides for the 4 suite upgrades you have for being Diamond that work only on paid rates.

Has anyone had success upgrading a non-paid stay using a suite upgrade?

Lol...that was for priceline.

Book if it's refundable and then call the hotel and ask for a manager and see if they're willing to let you use a suite upgrade cert on your stay.  If they notate the res that they are OK with that then Hyatt GP will be able to process the upgrade.  Or get the name of the manager and have Hyatt GP call the hotel directly and speak to that manager.

Great, thanks for the help. Spoke to the manager there. Because they only have a total of three suites at that property they don't upgrade anyone using the upgrade certs even on paid stays. He said he'd notate my reservation to upgrade to the best room short of a suite. Thanks again.

I've done it both ways.

Just found out that my 2 free nights anywhere at Hyatt posted. Cycle did not close and I have nt paid yet. Waiting for my wife's 2 free (standard room for all 4 ) . I also have 50 k UR .

First of all if I book the room  for 2 nights at the PH PARIS VENDOMME. And cancel do I lose the certs?

If not , Should I book 2 nights to get a position , and then try to add the other 2 after? I might use 22 k UR for a fifth night?

Should I transfer 22 k for the 5 th night and try booking 2 +  1 and hope for the other 2 to post soon to my wife's account after spend is met ?

I don't have status in either airline or Hyatt aside from
plat Hyatt via the card .

In hotels and flight logistics , is it better to book hotel first then work on flight later.

Both will be free awards thanks to guys like you Ou La La Paree  :)

Just did 3BM with Chase SW, Ink Bold and Hyatt. Got SW and Ink Bold approved in reconsideration (all thanks to Dan and this site) and still have Hyatt card to go.

I have nothing to make status match with to Hyatt before I would be approved. I also have a trip planned at Grand Hyatt Kauai and used 27K points a night to get Oceanside club room. Wanted to do something more special then regular room (which I assume I can't do with free nights with no status).

Question is, being that I don't need free nights right now, do I wait to try to get better status or do you think this offer won't be around in 6 months so might as well grab it?  Or has anyone churned this card?  Thanks....

I would save the points and use the free nights..then depending on time of stay request an upgrade or just use 6000 points to upgrade to club room....if they have availability the Hyatt is amazing at upgrading you.

You can email Joshua.Olayer@hyatt.com and tell him about your reservation and see if you could get upgraded to an ocean view room or something similar.

@ Busmachine    I have  2 free nights and my wife has one and hopefully she will get her next one within 10 days .

 I am a little confused because she received an email that she will be getting free award night and I don't know if that is the second of two in any Hyatt hotel , or her yearly free in cat 4 .

So bottom line I have 3 any hotel in hand and enough UR TO get 4 th night at Ph PARIS VENDOMME.

FIRST does anyone think 5 nights in Paris is overkill.  And second would this Joshua help me out in booking
The room for 5 nights with only 4 nights in hand .

Also I am hotel res manager in Athens hotel and might he give me courtesy industry upgrade ?

CMIIW, but I think the original RSVP must be made under his creds, though there may be a way to switch it.

But, yes, if his creds get attached to the RSVP, you should get Diamond bennies.

I'm sure there are Diamond members on here that would do an original booking for you. They get the stay + points, you get the bennies.
would they get any points on a award stay? (if i transfer chase points to there hyatt account) also would i be able to use a suite upgrade if i was a second person on there reservation?

They'd be much less inclined to do it for you if it was an award stay. For that, you'd likely need a friend.

I don't think you'd be able use your personal suite upgrade on a RSVP made using another's Hyatt account. Someone will CMIIW.

I just my my wife's second night free . That plus mine and I made an 4 day res by phones for PH PARIS VENDOMME.

After the previous posts, any thing I can do to get UPG OR at least free brkft that diamonds get. Brkft is 48 euros per person .

Does anyone have any expreience with this scenario: if the Chase Hyatt card is cancelled before the annual fee posts, and the two free nights are already booked, will they get taken away being that the chase card was closed? (basically will  the free stays will be removed from the goldpass account)?

Short answer: You'll keep the nights.

Long answer: It's a signup bonus. The general rule with signup bonuses is that if it's a partner award (e.g. airline, hotel chain etc.) then the signup bonus isn't clawed back, but if it's the issuer's reward program (e.g. Amex MR, BofA worldpoints, Chase UR, Citi TYP etc.) then once you close the card you forfeit any points in the award account (unless it'll stay opened if you have another account sharing that rewards account, like with Amex MR).

Right, that's what i figured, but i just wanted to make sure. Thanks!
Also, I now have a trial diamond status and it's showing me 4 suite upgrades (!), (kinda surprising because i was always under the impression that with the trial you dont get any upgrades... ) Anyhow, if i stay at the hyatt for 4 nights and only pay for 1 (use free nights with the other three), then if i use my suite upgrade is there anyway to extend to ALL the nights, not just the one that i paid for?

FWIU suite upgrades don't stack with free nights, but maybe if you upgrade your first (paid night) then you could keep the suite for your subsequent free nights. Maybe the Hyatt mavens here can chime in on that.

It's YMMV, but if you contact the hotel before hand, there is a good chance they will be ok with that, if the room is available. But as AsherO said, it officially doesn't work

Manager is always a good place to start if he's available. I think you said you were going to GHK. Tell him about all the amazing things said about his property on DD/DDF, and how excited you are to experience it

I would call hotel,get hotel general mgrs name and e/m( sometimes mid level people are afraid to say yes , while g.m is the king)  --send e/m with ur request-- i think it would help if u had a special reason why wanted (visiting  sick relative, new job interview etc.)and not just to game the system -- if get yes-- it is in writing-- if get a no--still can call reservations later

I just did the same thing with my award nights actually booked first. After I got Diamond trial status I booked my suite rooms and the CSR from Gold Passport I called said I couldn't use the upgrade on the award nights. I then called the special Diamond line and explained to the representative how annoying it would be to change rooms on my honeymoon and she promised to take care of it for me. A few hours later, I got a call back from Hyatt confirming my suite upgrade would be for the entire stay.

  Are you saying you got suite upgrade on an award only reservation,or combo paid and award res.? 

    If i used the Honeymoon schtick could I get upg at HP Paris Vendomme . Also if I do the 60 day match to Diamond from HH Gold can I add diamond staus to May reservation for breakfast at least, or do I have to be diamond on the dates I am there

2)how can we get elite when staying for free i see Dan is Plt, Diamond, at a bfew hotels with credit cards u can get only gold SPG or Plt, Hyatt not Diamond and now u can get Gold HH with the master card but how u get higher elite status ?
3)can we hold bookings like airline tickets before transferring points ?

Random Question: Is the free suite nights based on when you apply for the card? or when the card is approved? my hunch is that its when the card is approved because thats when they contact hyatt. I ask because someone applied for the card as a platinum member but matched to a diamond trial shortly after. By the time she was approved he was diamond but just wondering if that is enough to get free suite nights

Edit:
Just called and a rep confirmed my suspicions. I'm still not totally convinced, as reps can often be wrong,  ::) but she notated the account...

1) spg is better because you can do a cash & points booking (making points more valueable)
2) you can get hilton gold for free now. Dan posted how to do it on the main site, and then you can try matching to a hyatt diamond trial
3) no clue

It for sure goes by when they contact Hyatt (which is often before the card is totally approved as they must have a membership number before they approve). I believe I already once wrote exactly how hyatt card app process works.

All I said was that with TY points you earn miles, so that in that way, its like more like a revenue ticket than an award ticket.

Setting aside whether you earn points for the hotel stay, if it--like airlines tix--is more like a revenue stay than an award stay, then the upgrade should work.

Hope that makes sense.

Because you made a terrible comparison between flights booked with TY points to hotels booked with TY points.

My point was there is no comparison between flights and hotels because flights booked anywhere online earn miles while hotels booked anywhere online besides directly from the hotel do not earn points or status.

Now with upgrades and bennies, those are always YMMV, as hotel managers have lots of discretion, but my point was simply to learn a lesson about hotels from flights booked via a 3rd party is simply wrong.

I'd really like to lock in 4 nights from my wife and I's cards- there are standard rooms available as of now but I fear they may disappear as we have booked a trip during a very busy time.  Should I just learn some patience and wait it out or should I try to book them on my card and convert to the free night certificates later?

Don't mess with the statement date. Most times it'll just end up pushing off the receipt of the sign up bonus, instead of expediting it.

Sorry, I'm a bit confused- to get the 2 free suite nights you must be a diamond member at the time of approval for the card correct?

I had no status when I opened my card- so I just received instant platinum and (hopefully soon) 2 free standard rooms. 

I suppose I was too late to catch the Hilton Gold->Hyatt Diamond deal that ended 8/31, but if there is anything I can do at this point to upgrade myself I'd love to know.

Thanks for all the help.

Correct. (Though one person got them to give the suites when he got diamond between application and approval IIRC.)

How long ago did you apply? When did you get approved? If you can match the current (?) Hilton Gold offer to Hyatt Diamond, you may get them to match. (Though even getting the Hyatt Diamond match has gotten harder these days without HHonors activity.)

I applied for the wife and I on 12/19,  she was approved instantly, I was on hold, both cards arrived same day by mail before Dec 30 (we were out of town).  I've already spent the $1k on each.

I am just getting started in this game and have no other hotel statuses. This was the Hilotn->Hyatt deal I thought ended (http://www.dansdeals.com/archives/14846).

We're trying to book these 4 free nights at Park Hyatt Tokyo during a very busy time, so I want to lock the rooms down. But if I can upgrade to a suite somehow all the better. I think I will call now and put four standard nights on my card and change them to the free nights when those show up, and then deal with any upgrade business later.

There is this more current (http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=12555.msg161265#msg161265) offer for Hyatt insta-gold. Not sure if dead yet or not.

It's likely too late to get the suite upgrades (someone will woof CMIIW), but I guess it couldn't hurt to try.

Your free nights should post within a couple days of spending $1.

Thanks for all the help. I wish I had discovered this forum sooner and gotten my free nights in suites- Oh well, the signal to noise is way higher here and you don't see 9 contradictory answers every single time.

I think I'll still try for the Hyatt diamond match closer to my travel date so I can get breakfast and free spa access. I realize the match is a once in a lifetime thing, but I can always use my wife's account if lightning strikes twice.

You're welcome. It's possible--if you are Diamond at the time of stay--they'll upgrade you to a suite anyway. YMMV depending on date, property, and location (and probably a bunch of other things Jeff (https://www.facebook.com/jeff.zidell) didn't tell me).

What do you send to Hyatt to get a diamond trial for 60 days. I have gold status from hilton so I could send a screenshot but my account homepage shows that I have no stays with them. Is Hyatt still willing to match someone from Hilton even if a screenshot of my hilton  account homepage shows gold status but no stays?

Another data point- applied on 12/19, received card 12/30ish. Spent the $1k on 1/2, received free nights on 1/8.

I have a reservation open that I would like to convert to free nights, should I do this through the hotel or the gold passport line? Are they going to give me any trouble tying to combine 4 nights in a row (2 from me, 2 from the wife)?

Got the Hyatt Card on 12/2, made the purchases and the 2 free nights deposited on 12/20, points deposited on 12/28 and I cancelled before the New Year to get the $75 yearly fee back.  Strangely enough I got an e-mail from Hyatt on 1/2 which said "
Congratulations, you have earned an additional Award Night. You can expect your Award Night to be deposited to your Hyatt Gold Passport™ account within the next 10 days."  I waited for 10 days and no additional award night showed up so I e-mail'ed them and they said this e-mail was referring to the 2 nights I earned with my credit card.  This sounds a bit fishy to me.  I read some folks had gotten an additional anniversary night well before the first year but the language in the e-mail I got does not resemble what I read in this thread from people who got that night.  Think I have any shot if I pester them enough that I'll get another night?

it possibly can be. according to ben, "For example, my local Hyatt often has rates of around $100 per night, and the club lounge is closed on weekends. When you’re a Diamond member and stay over the weekend when the club lounge is closed, you get 2,500 bonus Gold Passport points. That means I’d be earning 2,750 bonus points per night through this promotion, 2,500 points for the club lounge being closed, 1,000 points as my Diamond welcome amenity, and then maybe 650 base points, for roughly 7,000 Gold Passport points for a one night mattress run"

Welcome :)

As long as you apply for the card when you are a Diamond, you'll receive two nights in a suite usable anytime up to a year after they're issued.

As long as you have the Hyatt CC, you'll be Hyatt Platinum (after you lose your Diamond status).

Not sure what the bolded is asking...

But if you're churning the card then you might still be Platinum in which case you'll get two nights and two suite upgrades after first purchase.

I'm not sure... if it's like airline status, then I guess so, but I don't know any credit card that gives automatic status in a similar fashion.

In any case, reapplying with your same GP # probably reduces your shot at being able to churn successfully...

IME with CO/UA, when you merge the elite account is the one you keep, so there would be no point merging before applying for the card.

Wouldn't each program have their own way of doing things, in that regard?

If anyone has any experience with this, I'd really appreciate it. I'm going to Paris this summer, and have my tkts already. I signed up for the hyatt card with diamond status. Recieved card on 2/10 and spend $0.56 on the card. I know the rules say the free nights take 10 days to post. When i called Hyatt they said the rooms are available now but they go very quickly because everyone uses there free night awards in Paris, and there are only 15 or so standard rooms. When should I expect to recieve the free nights? Can I reserve a lowest standard room with a credit card adn when the free nights post, cancel the room and rebook with the free night award?

110,000 points per night will do quite a lot ;)
However 11,000 points per night for an upgrade is doubtful.

But the standard rooms at PHV cost 22,000 Hyatt points and the Park Suite (which is the one I believe you get for the Chase Hyatt as a Diamond) cost 33,000. So shouldn't I be able to upgrade for the difference?

Well in that case, I need some expert advise. I am planning on going to Paris in August and would like to stay at PHV. I also would like to stay in a suite and be eligible for the continental kosher breakfast. Problem is that I am not Hyatt diamond. I have Gold at Hilton and my guess is that I could get a challenge from Hyatt but I know that I wont meet the challenge. So if I get the challenge now and then get the card, I get the suite but no breakfast. If I wait until before my trip to get the challenge, I get the breakfast but no suite.   Any ideas?

If you book a stay while you're diamond and arrange for breakfast in advance you should be good.

Just checked into the Hyatt 48 Lex (http://48lex.hyatt.com/hyatt/hotels/) using my annual Cat. 1-4 free night.

Unreal value for a cat 4.

Was reserved into a "studio king," but shmoozed my way into an upgrade to a corner suite (http://48lex.hyatt.com/hyatt/hotels/gallery/index.jsp?roomId=39906399&tabType=description), one step below their penthouse.

For those that have stayed in the Andaz 5th, this hotel--to us--is strikingly similar to that hotel.

Excellent redemption of the cat 1-4 hotel, IO(ur)HO.

The BA credit line didnt go down to 5,000 until Friday, and only today(Tuesday) did the Hyatt account finally show up.
So dont worry, it should be coming.

System can take a few days to update. did you get a firm approval by phone , or did analyst say they were recommending card for approval ?  If so sometimes we are faster than the system !

   Once an analyst said they were going to recommend approval and I took that to mean it was a done deal. Some confusion on Chases part and I had to call back to get it reapproved .

Title: HYATT CARD 2 AWARD NIGHTS AND $75 STATEMENT CREDIT!!
Post by: kangaroo on April 05, 2012, 12:19:29 AM
Did not see this posted anywhere.

Hyatt upped the ante, it used to be only 2 award nights, now there is an additional $75 statement credit. Ultimately this credit makes the card free for the first year, on your 1 year anniversary you also get a free night in a category 1-4.

If you applied for the Hyatt card before this promo, send an SM to Chase CS match it asking to. I did, and they placed the $75 credit on my account on the same day. YMMV though.

I sent a message to the "rewards" department via SM and received the following reply:

Dear Elite Flyer,

Thank you for contacting us regarding your Hyatt Credit
Card from Chase.

Our records indicate that your account was opened with an
offer to receive 1 Free Awards Night after the first
purchase and 1 free night after $1,000 in purchases within
93 days of the account open date. The offer to receive an
additional $75 statement credit was for customers who had
made a reservation online with Hyatt and opened the Chase
credit card account the same day. If you have met this
criteria, please provide us with the location of the Hyatt
Hotel so that we may confirm the booking date to compare
that with your application date.

If it is determined that a hotel booking was made on the
date of your application we will be happy to honor your
request for the $75 statement credit. If a hotel booking
was not made or was not done on the same date of the
application, we are unable to honor the request for the
statement credit.

If you have any further questions, please reply using the
Secure Message Center.

So I wrote back again. Here is the correspondence:
" Dear ******,

It appears that you are mistaken as to the offer with
which I signed up for the Hyatt card. As a platinum
member, I received 2 nights after my first purchase on the
card. I have since achieved Diamond status with Hyatt.

For your reference, my most recent reservation was at the
Grand Hyatt Kauai. Additionally, please find attached a
copy of the offer which details the $75 statement credit.
There is no requirement that the application be made in
conjunction with a Hyatt Reservation. On either basis, I
would respectfully request that you accommodate this offer
for my recently opened card.

Thank you for your consideration,

Elite Flyer"

Here's what I got this morning:

"Dear Elite Flyer,

Thank you for contacting Chase about 9***.

I have received your recent inquiry, and I am happy to
advise you that I have credited the $75.00 annual fee. You
will see this adjustment reflecting on one of your next
two billing statements.

One thing that remains unclear, is whether the statement credit was awarded on the basis of my recent stay, or based on the fact that the offer specifies no reservation requirement to qualify for the statement credit. Either way, I was happy to receive the credit.

Well, unless you fulfilled:

" The offer to receive an additional $75 statement credit was for customers who had made a reservation online with Hyatt and opened the Chase credit card account the same day. "

then it would seem it is based on the latter.

True, but it may be that the verification of that requirement is not possible, and the agent only looks to whether you placed a reservation which could have been made on the day of application. In this case, the reservation was indeed made in close proximity to the sign-up date.

I personally haven't seen that requirement on a Hyatt card application, but I'd bet that if something like that exists its verifiable.

If so, you think a Chase Rep is able to see that you made a RSVP but not when that RSVP was made? Highly doubtful IMHO.

the others, i responded with this:

Dear Sancho,
Thank you for your prompt reply, it is my contention that
may have confused the offer i am talking about with

please take a good look at the terms and conditions of the

will be reversed on one of the follow two billing

Also, the offer is now two free nights and a $75 statement credit, essentially making it free for the first year.  I did not sign up under this offer, but will definitely be asking for a match.

Problem is they want to see some activity, although my friend got a match/ challenge a few weeks ago by sending in the exact same Hilton page I sent in. I know the topic of Hyatt cracking down has been discussed many times in this thread but what should I do now?

Should I try to send in the Hilton paper again in the hopes of finding a better rep? Is there a better strategy that will get me status matched within the next few days so we can get the suites in time for our trip?

There are no guarantees, but with the same lastname you have even less of a problem IMHO, I wouldn't take the warnings too seriously, though I'd be cautious when checking in (i.e. second person on the res should check in alone).

I'm not sure what more you're looking for. In addition to being told by both AsherO and me, countless people on DDF have sold their nights and the buyers have used them without incident.

For the right price, I'm sure AsherO would hold your hand (for moral and intellectual support) as you sheepishly approach the Hyatt check-in agent to use your Abba's free nights.

For the right price, I'm sure AsherO would hold your hand (for moral and intellectual support) as you sheepishly approach the Hyatt check-in agent to use your Abba's free nights.

+1, we've done it, but we won't guarantee you it'll work because it's officially against the rules and thus YMMV. I don't think you'll have a problem, but if the person booking and/or the person checking in says something wrong, or if you have a machshefa at check-in, you might have trouble.

P.s. @AJK, I don't remember ever retaining you to speak on my behalf :P

There's only humble opinions here, no concrete experience.
I can't afford to arrive at the property after a few hours of travel and they'll say NO! You're not allowed to use it, I doubt it'll help me saying 'yeah, but in AsherO's humble opinion that shouldn't be a problem, you know that guy with the highest post count on DDF? Yes, he told me that!'

 have not stayed in hyatt for a long time --when  check into a U.S. hotel  if u are the only one on reservation , do they   ask  for proof of who u are ?  -----they do ask for a credit card and that is not a problem

Title: Hyatt Chase Card - 2 Nights Free plus $75 statement credit
Post by: shaytmg on May 30, 2012, 01:17:37 PM
The Chase Hyatt card now offers 2 free nights plus a $75 statement credit after the first purchase.  The annual fee is still $75, but now the credit obviously makes it free for the first year.

Here is the link: https://www.hyatt.com/hyatt/chase/ICOffer.jsp

I signed up without the $75 credit, but was able to match this deal after some back and forth with Chase.

Regarding that extra $75 credit:

Hi

I was dismayed to see that right after I applied for this
card, the following offer came out that included a $75
statement credit in addition to the two free nights. see
link https://www.hyatt.com/hyatt/chase/ICOffer.jsp
My friend got this credit. I would expect the same in
return as I am a very loyal chase customer.


and I got this reply (not so generic response)

Dear,

Thank you for contacting Chase.

I wish to keep you informed that the promotions offered to
new applicants can change periodically and are subject to
approval. Only new accounts are eligible for the First
Use Bonus offer, when opened in the offer period. hence, I
regret I am unable to honor your request.

After trying a nice few times to get the $75.00 credit, this is their final answer, I’m posting it to give a heads up to anyone else to make a booking THE day that they apply for the card. (I guess you can cancel the reservation afterwards  ;)).

Thank you for contacting us regarding your Hyatt Credit
Card from Chase.

Our records indicate that your account was opened with an
offer to receive 2 Free Awards Nights after first
purchase. The offer to receive an additional $75
statement credit was for customers who had made a
reservation online with Hyatt and opened the Chase credit
card account the same day. If you have met this
criteria, please provide us with the location of the Hyatt
Hotel so that we may confirm the booking date to compare
that with your application date.

If it is determined that a hotel booking was made on the
date of your application we will be happy to honor your
request for the $75 statement credit. If a hotel booking
was not made or was not done on the same date of the
application, we are unable to honor the request for the
statement credit.

If you have any further questions, please reply using the

The only thing that complicates things in my sitch is that my wife was/is diamond at time of approval. I wonder if she makes her first purchase after that expires (if it does), if that will effect it. Technically, according to T&C it shouldnt be a problem.

I didn't. But I emailed the agent and told her what the first agent had said and she replied that she was able to verify that I was informed that it was possible so she would honor that. Its possible that there were notes on the account. I don't really know how that works. Maybe she just asked around. Maybe she just said it. I don't know.

If by upgrades you're referring to the suite upgrades given to a diamond member, then it depends on whether your on a trial period or a full-fledged diamond.

If the former, they expire the same time as your diamond trial. If the latter, I believe they expire a year from when issued (though it could be per calendar year).

The free nights expire about 13 months from issuance IIRC.

If the latter, when were they going to expire?

According to Hyatt Suite upgrade terms you need to book your upgrades before they expire but you can book them for a later date

Either create a new one or leave it blank (no experience either way).

The reason nobody's spending on the Hyatt card is because of Freedom+Sapphire and this isn't going to change anyone's spending patterns.

Don't suppose these updated benefits are enough for Chase to consider this a "new" product, which would allow people who already have had the card a chance to sign up again for a fresh bonus?

Ok, received 5k to remain a Hyatt card holder, after getting the points 2 wks later I cancelled.
Created a new GP account with Hyatt got a new number, I then asked for a status match.
Hyatt realized I had another account and merged them hence i had to use teh same GP number.
Reapplied for the card and recieved it yesterday, activated this morning and was told by the CSR that
I will be receiving the 2 nights after my first purchase.

I hope this is the case.

My question now, if I end up cancelling will my Hyatt points expire? How do I prevent that?

If you used a different address, number, email etc. they would never discover it. And even if they did they would have no way of knowing its the same person and therefore wouldnt merge.

You keep totals in your HGP Account? I would only try when at zero balance and no reservations

I just received this reply after an SM to waive the $75

Dear

Thank you for contacting Chase about 27.

I understand that you have concerns regarding the annual
fee associated with the account listed above. Our records
do not indicate that the fee was to be waived for the
first year. Your account was opened with an offer to
receive Two Free Award Nights after the first purchase.

To further research your request for the $75 first-year
annual fee waiver, please provide the 12-digit Invitation
Code included on the enrollment offer you received. You
may expedite the request by faxing a copy of the document
to us at 1-888-643-9628. Once we receive the information,
we will quickly review the account details to determine
whether a rewards point adjustment should be made.

Please be advised that the 12-digit Invitation Code is
exclusive to the recipient of the enrollment offer.

If you have any further questions, please reply using the
Secure Message Center.

Thank you,

Suzanne Harrington
Customer Service Specialist

Dear

Thank you for contacting Chase about your Hyatt account.

I understand you may be disappointed; however we are
unable to honor your request without providing us with the
12-digit Invitation Code. We must be consistent in
applying the terms of our contract. To make exceptions
would not be equitable to our other Cardmembers. We hope,
therefore, that you can understand our position.

I am pleased to share with you that I have added 2,500
points to your rewards balance. You will see this
adjustment on the next billing statement.

We certainly sympathize with the circumstances you are
facing due to the recent hurricane. If you have any
further questions, please reply using the Secure Message
Center.

Thank you,

Gracie Rodriguez

Nice!
Did you send a new SM after getting rejected again, or this was a reply to the other one of the two you sent before?

After receiving the SM about points I did not reply...the next  SM came as a reply from a different SM I sent giving me the credit.
So hoping I get points also...if I do Ill always SM a few times and hope to double dip

Any advice i can get would be appreciated, i got the Hyatt card last month they billed me for $75 annual fee sent SM to see if they can waive and they responded:
I am writing in response to your request for an annual fee
credit on your Hyatt account.

Please note, we are unable to waive the $75.00 annual fee
assessed on your account. I apologize for any
inconvenience this may cause you.

So i tried again week later new SM sending the screenshot someone posted about the 75.00 bonus and the responded:
I am pleased to respond to your inquiry this morning.

Our records indicate that your account was opened with an
offer to receive 2 Free Awards Nights after first
purchase. The offer to receive an additional $75 statement
credit was for customers who had made reservation online
with Hyatt and opened the Hyatt Credit Card account from
Chase. If you have met this criteria, please provide us
with the location of the Hyatt Hotel so that we may
confirm the booking date.

If it is determined that a hotel booking was made we will
be happy to honor your request for the $75 statement
credit. If a hotel booking was not made or was not done
on the same date of the application, we are unable to
honor the request for the statement credit.

I see lots of cardholders were able to get the credit why am i having such a hard time? Am i doing something wrong, Thank you for your time.

Just keep on SMing them. It took me around 5-6 times till they waived the fee. Make up new things every time. Be persistent.

If you stop SMing them and HUCA with two nos...you won't get anywhere with this. Tell them your a loyal customer or wtvr and your friends got it waived and your a victim of sandy and if they can please waive as a token of appreciation...can't think of what I write exactly..every time it's different..just comes to me while I'm writing. Just make the story sound good and be persistent.

Again if you ever need to HUCA for recon to approve a cc...don't stop after two no's. you'll be surprised that it sounds like each rep has their own set of laws and what's a no for one can be a yes for another.

Good luck

If there is a STANDARD room available for sale at the hotel, a standard award night CAN be used.

If there is a STANDARD SUITE available for sale at the hotel, a standard SUITE night CAN be used.

I did HUCA BTW and Its indeed a fact. The HYATT (chase) free nights are subject to availability. They are often not available even though the same hotel has rooms available for sale at a standard price of aprox 299 for a king room.
Bottom line I was mislead by someone who was singing the praises of the Chase HYATT card with free nights, I was under the impression that there are no blackouts and that booking a room would not be a PITA. I tried booking on wednsday for last sat night but failed.
(Its ok we will have another anniversary next year....{I hope!})

Post by: AJK on November 18, 2012, 11:38:15 PM
Pretty sure "subject to availability" doesn't mean what you think it does  ::)

Example: an award night not being redeemable at a hotel that is 110% overbooked does not mean that award nights are subject to availability. It means the rooms in the hotel itself are sold out.

Post by: churnbabychurn on November 18, 2012, 11:53:42 PM
they offered me to pay for one. Both online and on the phone. So no, the hotel was not full. The few rooms they put aside for reward redmption where taken. IMO the chase hyatt cc is a waste of a pull. Not to memtion that getting the statement credit is a huge pita.

That was just an example. An example you apparently missed the point of.

The fact of the matter is "standard" room has a definition. If the rooms by that definition are sold out, you can say "hey, see! they ARE subject to availability and they won't give me an award night for them" to which I'd respond, "yes, they are subject to availability, but only in the sense that they cannot sell you (or redeem for you) a room which they do not have.

Does this still mean i'll get the 2500 points?

Please update if you got the points also.

Elite guaranteed availability is just that.  Guaranteeing an elite that in exchange for being a loyal customer that they will always have a room if they pay the full rack rate, even if it means turning away a late arriving peon.
Hotels do it. Airlines do it. Car rental places do it.  It's smart business.

Why wouldn't it be like an airline bump, where they'd offer something to a volunteer? Seems the compensation will be coughed up anyway, so why not preemptively offer/give it to a willing walk-ee?

It's easier with an airline where everyoe is in one place at the same time.

But a hotel can do that. I know eliteflyer posted here once that the GH LIH preemptively called him before his trip and offered very nice compensation in exchange for agreeing to move to a different hotel for part of his stay.

Other than that a hotel overbooks and hopes for no-shows.  But if everyone winds up showing it means someone will be walked to another hotel and compensation will likely be dealt with afterward.

Our records indicate that your account was opened with an
offer to receive 2 Free Awards Nights after spending
$1,000 in purchase within 100 days from the open date. The
offer to receive an additional $75 statement credit was
for customers who had made a reservation online with Hyatt
and opened the Hyatt Credit Card account from Chase. If
you have met this criteria, please provide us with the
location of the Hyatt Hotel so that we may confirm the
booking date.

If it is determined that a hotel booking was made, we will
be happy to honor your request for the $75 statement
credit. If a hotel booking was not made or was not done on
the same date of the application, we will be unable to
honor the request for the statement credit.

Please note that there are no such offers to receive a $75
statement when adding an authorized user on the Hyatt
accounts.

The actual nights don't have ANY status.

But in practice, the nights will be from a CC account which makes the holder platinum, so the rooms will "be platinum."

You can book suite nights with Hyatt points. And no the 2 free nights can't be made into suite nights. Get Diamond status before applying and you'll get 2 free suite nights.

Do you have any stays in your account? Did they give you a reason why not?

Another data point- applied on 12/19, received card 12/30ish. Spent the $1k on 1/2, received free nights on 1/8.

I have a reservation open that I would like to convert to free nights, should I do this through the hotel or the gold passport line? Are they going to give me any trouble tying to combine 4 nights in a row (2 from me, 2 from the wife)?
Were you able to combine the nights?

On the apllication site it says this as bonus for sign up.
Diamond Members
 2 Free Nights in a Suite

Platinum Members
 2 Free Nights & 2 Suite Upgrades

New and Current
Hyatt Gold Passport Members
 2 Free Nights

Can you use the 2 free night with 2 suite upgrades thereby making your signup bonus the same as diamond?

Chase just told me that i can reject my card as long as i didnt activate it yet and it will not effect my credit score as it will not show as canceled card. (does this make sense?) Anyone know if i do the rejection can i sign up right away again for the card (doing this to get the 100$ offer and to get the platinum trial first for upgrades)?

I never heard of that, but I guess it makes sense. (The account takes time to show up on your report, so if you cancel before it never even posted, then I guess it won't ever post)

The inquiry will still remain, and that's something to be concerned about if you plan on applying for another card right away.

Regarding affecting your credit score - canceled cards don't really affect your score unless you don't move over the CL beforehand.

Post by: margol on March 07, 2013, 04:42:58 PM
Hi All -

Apologies if this has been addressed before - I searched but did not come up with anything that seemed to be relevant.

Does anyone know if there is a away to extend the expiration on the 2 free award nights that you get for signing up for the Chase Hyatt card?  I called Hyatt and they said that it was up to chase.  Wanted to know if anyone has had success doing this?  I used one last night but the second one expires at the end of this month and it is unlikely that I will use it.

Any help is appreciated!!!

Thanks in advance!!

So i called Chase and they told me that the card was returned to them (us post  :-\ ) so they closed the account , but a supervisor re-opened the account and i will receive the card in a few days .
do you guys think they will charge me again the 75$ AF ?

Please note that the offer to receive the $100 statement,
which I have confirmed you received, and the offer for the
$75 first year annual fee waiver are two separate offers.
Each offer is a one-time bonus offer and are valid only
for first-time Hyatt Card cardmembers with new accounts
and customers can only apply for one.

We must be consistent in applying the terms of our
contract. To make exceptions would not be equitable to our
other Cardmembers.
We hope, therefore, that you can
understand our position.

I was expecting to be denied. But this language takes it to a whole new level. Is offer matching coming to an end?

I booked a refundable reservation and just sent them the reservation number. A few hours after receiving an SM back with a positive answer I cancelled the reservation.

Should show up in your HGP account.

(Full disclosure: the nights used to show up within 7-10 days when it used to be after first purchase. Maybe it has changed since then?)

It usually posts in you Hyatt account a couple days after you meet the spend.

It shows in your Hyatt account. Go to "My account" and then "My awards", it should show there.

no go on the AF cr:

It is my pleasure to assist you with your account inquiry
today.

Our records indicate that you requested the $100 statement
credit enrollment bonus offer on April 19, 2013. That $100
credit did post to the Hyatt account on April 22, 2013.

If you would rather have the first year free enrollment
bonus we would have to remove the $100 statement credits.
No account can receive both offers.

I've read about 15 pages but I'm still unclear on how to get the $100 credit.  All I have to do is SM them saying I saw an offer for a $100 statement credit and want them to match it?? I know you need to make a reservation from hyatt.com.  I assume all reservations are cancelable without fees. CMIIW.

Also, is it worth it to make a reservation first and send the confirmation number along with the first SM?

Finally, people were referencing a link to get the $100 from the hyatt website during checkout.  I can't see that link.  Do i need it at all?

Next time try doing it BEFORE so you can get 2 free suite nights. Easiest way is to get a match from another hotel chain. I'd match before I was about to use the nights though and at least get diamond benefits for the stay.

Call the hotel and ask nicely if you have status in any other loyalty program . Tell them you want to
switch to Hyatt as your hotel of choice.

Can't hurt .

I got it. It's 2.2 Hyatt points per dollar, provided you spend exactly 10.

I would do as many Chase GCs as possible, and then switch to VRs.

However, any initial bonus has higher priority than this, so we'll see how the summer goes.

That's a bonus of 10k for spending 6k. Not the greatest, but not too shabby.

They have been waiving fee so it's 2500 for 2500, obviously you can load BB at Walmart, or AP cash out.

That translates into purely free spend, only thing it uses up is bluebird capacity or AP spend.

I remember reading once that if you get 1 million points that you can get lifetime diamond after being a member for 10 years.  Does anyone have a source for that ?

Also is there anyway to get status on any given year via points transfered into your account or can you only get status from match or actual stays.

Thanks !
Title: Re: Chase Hyatt Visa Master Thread
Post by: Dan on July 04, 2013, 09:26:02 AM
Only base points count towards lifetime status.
In other words you needs $200K spending at Hyatt hotels.
Title: Re: Chase Hyatt Visa Master Thread
Post by: Lotofsimcha on July 04, 2013, 09:49:50 AM
It seems like points from spending are posting as "base" points (and not "bonus" points)
This means they should qualify towards earning lifetime Diamond status.

Is this not the case anymore ? Yes I realize this is not the same as transferred points as I initially asked, but this is what I meant.

No, that's a common misconception.
You just need to have had 10 years as a Hyatt member.  You could have been non-elite for all those years, once you get 1 million base points (and have been a member for 10 years) you earn lifetime diamond.

Sorry this is what I was referring to I just couldn't find it last night... I did not see this in the program rules is there a source/link for this ?

IIRC There was a better time of the year to get the Hyatt Diamond challenge.
(Hyatt determines how long your Hyatt Diamond status will last depending on when you start your challenge.  If you start and complete your Hyatt Diamond challenge after June 1, 2013, your Diamond status will last until February 2015.  However, if you start before June 1, 2013, it will only last until February 2014.)

before I apply, can I sign up for the diamond trial , (and will be diamond at the time of application) , get the 2 free suite nights, and then worst case if i dont meet the trial, fall to platinum... does that work ? or do i need to actually hit the 12 nights during the trial ? 

I dont really want to go after the united club card first ....

Correct: Become Diamond before app, apply as Diamond, get 2 free nights after spend requirement.  No stays needed.  Fall to Plat if you don't meet stay requirements.

Reports on FT (http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/hyatt-gold-passport/1124212-hyatt-rewards-card-chase-wiki-134.html) say that Hyatt is no longer offering suite nights for Diamond membership during the application process. All the application links I've found now just say 2 nights in a standard room. I have a screenshot of the application terms as of September 9, so the change must be since then.

time icon doesn't prove much, as it's controlled by you.   open another window to msn.com or something that displays the time and date on it.  make sure that part of the window is visible as well as the crucial information from the app or whatnot.

They're waiving the annual fee but not giving $50.

Dear Mr. Kangarruu,

Thank you for contacting Chase about your account ending 
Xx.

I understand that you have concerns regarding the annual 
fee associated with the account listed above. Though the 
offer you refer to is a new offer, I am pleased to match 
it. I have issued a credit for the $75 fee, and you will 
see the adjustment on your next billing statement.

The offer to receive an additional $50 statement credit 
was for customers who had made a reservation online with 
Hyatt and opened the Hyatt Credit Card account from Chase.
If it is determined that a hotel booking was made the same
day, we will be happy to honor your request for the $50 
statement credit. 

If a hotel booking was not made or was not done on the 
same date of the application, we will be unable to honor 
the request for the statement credit. If you meet the 
terms, please provide the confirmation number of the 
reservation booking made so we may match the offer.

If you have any further questions, please reply using the 
Secure Message Center. 

Thank you,

Xx
Customer Service Specialist

Question: I have Hyatt Diamond Status, and I have 2 free suite nights.
I plan on staying in hotel for a 3rd Night.
3rd night either via points or C+P.
If I book the 1st two nights with my 2 free suites nights, can I add the 3rd paid night to reservation , and get to stay in suite the 3rd night too?

Unless they have no other rooms and the suite is reserved they usually allow you to stay in your original room.

yes it was spoken about up thread, if i remember correctly, i sent in a screen shot of a (new) reservation and asked them to match that offer (it used to be $100). However now that its only $50 you may want to ask to have your AF waived (or else it already was).

DH has credit card suite nights from back when Chase was still offering them to Diamond members. We tried booking at the Grand Hyatt Kauai tonight (moving a booking, actually), but Hyatt says that there's no available suite space. Online I can see that they have ocean suites for sale but not garden suites. In total we have 6 nights at the GHK (2 credit card suite nights, 2 credit card regular nights, and 2 cash and points bookings that we're going to use a suite upgrade on). Is there any way we can get Hyatt to let us use the suite upgrade and the suite credit card nights for an ocean suite?

We're booked at the GHK in June for 6 nights. 2 nights are (supposed to be) DH's award suite nights, 2 nights are my regular room award nights, and 2 nights are cash and points, which we wanted to use suite upgrades towards.

There was a mistake on our reservation due to switching dates on one of our nights, and our suite night ended up being booked as a paid stay in a regular room. We called the hotel and they said they have no garden suites available to use for our free suite night. They wouldn't budge on upgrading us to an ocean suite. The rep said I should call Gold Passport to see if they could adjust it, but since they had no garden suites available, GP only offered to book our suite night in a regular room.

I'm doing the diamond challenge now, but that didn't seem to help any. Shouldn't they at least be upgrading us to an ocean suite for our paid stays using the suite upgrades? Does anyone have any recommendations? We don't want to waste a suite night in a regular room, but we don't want to pay the full rate either. We're out of points to use cash & points as well. Help?

The question seemed pretty straight forward. He didnt imply there was more to the story. That being said I've used my points, my mother's and a grandfather's all on one reservation at the GHK and didn't have a problem.  They even connected the reservations on their own.

+1 I made a reservation with my free nights and my wife's free nights and they added them to the same reservation without asking, plus added a 5th night with her points.
I called up and everything is under name, I didn't even have to "pretend" to be my wife. Can't remember why we didn't put it all under my name, but nonetheless, my nights were reserved under someone else's name.

Don't know myb821 too well (clearly you've been around the forums for a while, though) but you've been quick to jump on people in this thread today.
