World of Hyatt members who carry the new version of the Hyatt Visa Card by Chase should check out their accounts as the 5 Elite Qualifying Nights have just posted for 2020 on many members accounts.
U.S. Credit card customers of the new Hyatt Visa product issued by Chase are entitled to a bonus of five Elite Nights per year which is a huge advantage considering the increased threshold for top tier status under World of Hyatt.
You can check your World of Hyatt account balance either on the App or through the website.
Chase started to offer customers the option to upgrade to the new card or lodge new applications announced changes to its SPG card portfolio that moved to Marriott Bonvoy branding effective February 13, 2019 (see John’s article about that here).
This year the posting of the card elite nights was especially fast as they showed up right in the first few days of January. It’s not tied to when the account statement closes (mine doesn’t close until late January).
The transaction doesn’t show up properly in the account activity. Instead it just displays “Rewards Bonus – Points Earned: 0” on January 1st and the five nights counted up in the general balance of YTD qualifying nights:
For those who carry the Marriott Bonvoy cards on the side, those elite nights posted as well this week and I already covered those on Saturday.
We usually get many requests from members regarding when the credit card nights will post. This year Chase was very fast to post the Elite Nights to members accounts. In fact I never had significant problems with Chase or Hyatt as far as the posting of my points is concerned.
I’ve heard from some people they are still missing the credit of their Hyatt nights. I’d wait a little bit, maybe they process by batches? In any case they will eventually show up, no need to lose sleep over it since we’ve got 12 months to go in order to collect our 60 nights this year.
