World of Hyatt points earning example
Suppose you stay four nights at the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa in Hawaii for $425 per night. You would earn:
- 8,500 points as a standard World of Hyatt member
- 11,050 points as a Globalist elite member
- 16,150 points as a World of Hyatt Credit Card member
World of Hyatt redemption starts at 5,000 points for a Category 1 hotel per night. However, the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa in Hawaii is a Category 6. You need at least 25,000 points to redeem for one night.
Making purchases with eligible cards is the fastest way to earn World of Hyatt reward points. You’ll earn bonus points when spending on eligible categories. You can also take advantage of the welcome offer for a big point boost. Also, as a World of Hyatt credit cardmember, you automatically get the Discoverist elite status tier.
World of Hyatt points transfer partners
Unlike other hotels, World of Hyatt has only one cobranded credit card. However, it also has one major credit card transfer partner — the Chase Ultimate Rewards. This means you can use either the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card or the Chase Sapphire Reserve® cards to earn points and then transfer to World of Hyatt points in a 1:1 ratio. Check out all the eligible cards in the table below to see how they compare.

Yes. Points earned in restaurant and spa outlets are considered base points.
If you’re a fan of Hyatt hotels, signing up for a Hyatt cobranded credit card might make sense for you. A cobranded Hyatt card offers a number of ways to rack up points to earn Hyatt-related rewards, including extra hotel stays. Find out more below.
