American Express has loaded a new Amex Offer to select card accounts (non-co branded cards) that advertises a US$60 credit when spending at least US$300 at Hyatt Regency Hotels in the U.S. through July 18, 2022.
The offer requires a combined amount of charges reaching at least $300 to be charged to the card the member registers with in order for the credit to be processed.
In case a cardmember has multiple cards, only one card can be enrolled for the offer as it usually is for these but you will be able to sign up authorized users separately.
Amex has these offers quite regularly, in fact there is another one around for Marriott that is loaded to their Bonvoy Cobranded cards as well (will write that one up separately).
You will find these offers when logging into your account, either on the app or website.
The current Hyatt one looks like this:
This particular offer is very brand specific. You can only use it at Hyatt Regency and none of the other Hyatt brands. At the same time it’s only valid in the U.S. and not in other parts of North America or the Caribbean as most offers usually allow it.
It showed up on my Platinum Charge Card and my Everyday Preferred Card. I decided to add it to my Everyday as I recently upgraded the card following an upgrade offer for 20,000 MR points and I need to spend $1000 on the card. Since the Everyday has a foreign transaction fee it makes sense to charge USD transactions to it.
You won’t find this offer on Co-Branded Cards but all others should be fine, just skim through your offers and you might find it there.
I can possibly make this work for myself in the coming weeks but the only hotels that come to my mind where I can use it are the Hyatt Regency LAX and the Hyatt Regency Seattle. I won’t be going elsewhere with a Regency property and Canada is excluded per the T&C.
I do like these offers as they help to mitigate your annual membership fee on the card. However I recommend to not jump through hoops just to get a credit. That’s just what they want. For me, if I get a credit based on my regular spending pattern then fine.
American Express has updated the list of its offers with one for Hyatt Regency in the U.S. and you can earn a $60 credit when spending $300 at the hotels. Multiple transactions are ok.
You can only add this offer to ONE card in your card portfolio that is under your name. In case you have a supplementary card it’s possible to add it to those and double dip if the authorized user account has the offer showing up as well.
These are the complete Terms&Conditions for this offer:
Enrollment limited. Must first add offer to Card and then use same Card to redeem. Only U.S.-issued American Express® Cards are eligible. Limit 1 enrolled Card per Card Member across all American Express offer channels. Your enrollment of an eligible American Express Card for this offer extends only to that Card. Offer valid only at Hyatt Regency in the US and US territories. Reservations must be made directly through Hyatt Regency online at hyattregency.com or via mobile app. Valid only on purchases made in US dollars. Excludes all other Hyatt brands, including Caption by Hyatt, Andaz, Alila, Thompson Hotels, Hyatt Centric, Park Hyatt, Miraval, Grand Hyatt, Hyatt Zilara, Hyatt Ziva, Hyatt Place, Hyatt House, The Unbound Collection by Hyatt, Destination by Hyatt, JDV by Hyatt. Excludes gift card purchases. Not valid on transactions made at restaurants, spas or amenities. Excludes bookings through Hyatt travel advisors and travel agents. Not valid on group bookings or Camp Hyatt. Offer only valid on room rate and room charges. Offer not valid for lodging stays that are paid for before the promotion start date or after the promotion end date. Offer is non-transferable. Limit of 1 statement credit per Card Member. You may not receive the statement credit if we receive inaccurate information or are otherwise unable to identify your purchase as qualifying for the offer. For example, you may not receive the statement credit if (a) the merchant uses a third-party to sell their products or services; or (b) the merchant uses a third-party to process or submit your transaction to us (e.g., using mobile or wireless card readers); or (c) you choose to make a purchase using a third-party payment account or make a purchase using a mobile or digital wallet. Purchases may fall outside of the offer period in some cases due to a delay in merchants submitting transactions to us or if the purchase date differs from the date you made the transaction (for example, the purchase date for online orders may be the shipping date). Statement credit will appear on your billing statement within 90 days after 7/18/2022, provided that American Express receives information from the merchant about your qualifying purchase. Note that American Express may not receive information about your qualifying purchase from merchant until all items/services from your qualifying purchase have been provided by merchant. Statement credit may be reversed if qualifying purchase is cancelled. If American Express does not receive information that identifies your purchase as qualifying for the offer, you will not receive the statement credit. Limit 1 enrolled Card per American Express Card online account. The enrolled Card account must be active, not past due, canceled, or have a returned payment outstanding to receive the statement credit. Any benefit earned from this offer is in addition to the rewards (i.e. Membership Rewards or cash back) earned as part of your existing Card benefits, but your ability to earn spend-based rewards for the purchase will be based on the amount after any statement credit or other discount is applied. Amex Offers are dynamic and personalized, so the offers you see may change. For questions regarding your Card Account, please call the number on the back of your Card. By adding an offer to a Card, you agree that American Express may send you communications about the offer.
