Card Features and Benefits:

    The World of Hyatt Business card gives you Discoverist status, 5 elite nights for every $10,000 you spend, and 2X points on a range of common business spending categories.

    World of Hyatt Business Credit Card Earn Rate

    • Earn a total of 2 points per $1 spent for the top two of eight spend categories you spend on each calendar quarter —with no cap.
    • The qualifying spend categories include 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.
    • Stays at World of Hyatt hotels earn 4X points per dollar.
    • Fitness club and gym memberships earn 2X points per dollar.
    • Everything else earns 1 point per dollar spent.

    World of Hyatt Business Credit Card Benefits

    Automatic Discoverist Status

    This entitles you to on-property benefits like higher speed internet, daily bottles of water, a preferred room, and a non-guaranteed 2pm checkout.

    Discoverist Status Gifts

    One unusual benefit that many will appreciate is the ability to give Discoverist status to 5 people.

    Assuming that the people you gift to don't have *any* status,  they will definitely appreciate the benefits.

    Spending Your Way to Elite Status

    For each $10,000 you spend, you get 5 elite nights. This is 25% better in terms of earned elite nights than the personal card (and, for many, high spend on a business card is easier to achieve because businesses have lots of expenses!)

    This alone may get you to get and keep the World of Hyatt Business card.

    If you already have the personal Hyatt credit card, which gives you 5 elite nights annually, you need 55 more for Globalist. With $110,000 in annual spend on your business Hyatt card, you wouldn't even need to stay a night to earn Globalist. Not a small figure, but not large for many, many businesses.

    10% Rebate on Award Nights

    Once you spend $50,000 in a calendar year, you will get 10% of all redemptions refunded (up to 20,000 points rebated annually) through the end of the year. That could be a huge boon if the timing works out. Just note that if your stay is in the next calendar year, it won't apply. You have to earn it and redeem it AND complete the stay in the same calendar year and in that order.

    Still, for high spenders, it's easy to see meeting this spend in the 1st quarter of the year and then getting 20,000 points rebated on 200,000 points redeemed. You could easily justify the annual fee off this one benefit.

    Up to $100 in Hyatt Credits Each Cardmember Year

    Earn a $50 statement credit per qualifying Hyatt purchases (folio charges) up to 2 times each anniversary year. Each purchase must be over $50 in one transaction.

    Hyatt Leverage Tie In

    Hyatt Leverage is a business program that gives you your own corporate rate. When you have the World of Hyatt Business Credit Card, all requirements to stay in the Leverage program are waived.

    More Benefits

    • No fee for employee business cards
    • No foreign transaction fees
    • Complimentary roadside dispatch
    • Primary rental car collision damage waiver (when used for Business purposes)
    • Extended warranty protection
    • Purchase protection
    • Trip cancellation/travel interruption insurance
    • Travel and emergency assistance services
    • Access to Hyatt Leverage, Hyatt’s global business travel program that offers special rates to qualifying small and mid-sized enterprises at participating Hyatt hotels worldwide

    MilesTalk's Thoughts on this Card

    There's a lot to love about the new World of Hyatt Business Credit Card. It's got a huge bonus for a new account, on-property credits that offset half the annual fee, and the ability to earn Hyatt's famous top tier Globalist status via spend.

    Keep in mind that you can also transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards points to Hyatt 1:1, as long as you have a Chase Ink Business Preferred, Chase Sapphire Preferred Card, or Chase Sapphire Reserve.

    5/24 and the World of Hyatt Business Credit Card

    Note: You will only be approved for a Chase card if you have applied for fewer than 5 personal credit cards within the last 24 months from any issuer. (Business cards do not count against the total, except for Capital One and Discover, but are subject to the policy). Learn more about the 5/24 rule here.
