The World of Hyatt business credit card is literally packed with reasons to have it. To me, the main reason is that you can use your business spending to earn elite night credits. For someone that values Globalist status (which is often referred to as the best top tier status of any US hotel chain – with good reason!) and has business with high spend, the ability to earn 5 elite night credits per $10,000 in spend is great.

Keep in mind you’ll also earn 4X World of Hyatt points per dollar spent at Hyatt properties and then 2 points per $1 spent for the top two of the following eight spend categories you spend on each calendar quarter —with no cap: dining; airline tickets purchased directly with the airline; car rental agencies; local transit and commuting; gas stations; internet, cable and phone services; social media and search engine advertising; and shipping.

If you spend a lot on those categories, your $10,000 in spend earns you 20,000 World of Hyatt points (worth about $340 using our own valuations of points and miles) as well as 5 elite status qualifying nights.

One thing to note is that there are other Chase credit cards that earn better for some of the above categories. For instance the Chase Ink Business Preferred earns 3X Chase Ultimate Rewards (which transfer back to the World of Hyatt program 1:1) on all travel (beating 2X on the World of Hyatt Business card for airline and car rental spend) and 3X on internet, cable and phone services; social media and search engine advertising; and shipping. However, that caps out at $150,000 in combined total spend whereas the World of Hyatt business credit card has no cap. You could spend $500,000 on these (top two each quarter, remember) and earn a whopping million points whereas you’d earn significantly less on the Chase Ink Business Preferred due to the $150,000 cap. Basically, you can earn a ton of Hyatt bonus points!

Beyond that, this card offers automatic Hyatt status in the form of Discoverist status. While it’s the lowest elite tier in the World of Hyatt program, it normally would take 10 nights to earn and still offers some nice perks such as premium Internet, complimentary bottled water, a preferred room within your booked category, the ability to earn 1 American Airlines AAdvantage mile per $1 spent at Hyatt (in addition to your Hyatt points), and a 2pm checkout (based on availability). Not only that, but you can “gift” this same Discoverist Hyatt status to up to five employees as well.

And don’t forget, this card gives you access to the Hyatt Leverage program. Hyatt Leverage provides your company with a discount code for stays at a Hyatt property, just like big corporations get! I have personally saved significant money using my own Hyatt Leverage discount.

Another great benefit of this card is the primary car rental CDW / LDW coverage as long as the rental is for business purposes. I really love credit cards with primary CDW insurance because you know you won’t have to involve your personal insurance, potentially owing a deductible, if something happens. I once had a Jaguar I rented from Hertz get keyed in a parking lot and Chase took care of it 100%.

It’s also got some nice protections for items you purchase, with both Purchase Protection (theft or damage to a newly purchased item) and Extended Warranty.

All in all, the World of Hyatt Business credit card is an incredibly well rounded card for those that are loyal to Hyatt and, by extension, the World of Hyatt loyalty program.

Review

The Chase Sapphire Reserve credit card is the one that, in a sense, started it all. While rewards cards have been around for decades, The Chase Sapphire Reserve quickly became a must-have upon its launch in 2016. With a huge bonus offer, the Priority Pass airport lounge access, the easy to use $300 travel credits, and 3X Chase Ultimate Rewards points per dollar spent on all dining and travel made it an easy sell.

Today, it remains one of the strongest travel credit cards on the market, even if other cards like the newer Capital One Venture X and The Platinum Card® from American Express both get solid market share.

The beauty of the Chase Sapphire Reserve lies in its simplicity.

The $300 annual travel credit works itself off without you even noticing, since travel purchases are automatically applied. With the Venture X, for instance, you also get a $300 annual travel credit but can only use it in the Capital One portal.

Then the Chase Sapphire Reserve is just plain “easy” when it comes to earning, knowing that just about every possible travel or dining purchase (including eligible delivery services) will earn 3X Chase Ultimate Rewards points.

And to that end, with a MilesTalk value of 1.75 cents per point when used via transfer partners like World of Hyatt or for First and Business Class airfare via its many airline partners, you know you’ll get value for those points you earn. In fact, your travel and dining purchases (earning 3X points) have a minimum return on spend value of 4.5% (if you redeem through Chase Ultimate Rewards travel portal at 1.5 cents each or an average redemption yield of around 5.25% (3X * 1.75) when you use the Ultimate Rewards airline and hotel partners.

The card is also full of the most important benefits, namely the Priority Pass select membership for airport lounge access for you and 2 guests, including Priority Pass dining as well as primary collision/damage coverage on car rentals and trip delay coverage that kicks in after just a 6 hour delay as well as lost luggage insurance. And then there are the somewhat smaller but still valuable perks like your Global Entry fee reimbursement and 10x total points on hotels and car rentals purchased through Chase Ultimate Rewards® and Chase dining purchases.

And of course, there’s that huge bonus when you spend $4,000 on purchases in your first 3 months from account opening….

So yes, it does have a high annual fee, but after the $300 travel credit, it’s effectively just $250 which the card gives you back via it’s earn rate, redemption rate (1.5 cents per point in the portal) and rich benefits.
