5 of the best ways to use 75,000 World of Hyatt points

Asia's Tech News Daily

Earlier in October, Chase and Hyatt launched their first-ever cobranded business credit card together — the World of Hyatt Business Credit Card. Now, small businesses have the opportunity to earn World of Hyatt points on purchases while also receiving valuable perks. But the real game-changer here is the enticing welcome offer.

New World of Hyatt Business Credit Card cardmembers can earn 75,000 points after spending $7,500 on purchases within the first three months from account opening. While this might sound like a lot of spend on paper, if your business generates just $2,500 a month in regular credit card spend, earning the bonus should be easily obtainable.

But once you earn the points, where should you spend them? Fortunately, World of Hyatt has a very favorable award chart where your points can take you pretty far.

Based on TPG’s valuations, World of Hyatt points are worth 1.7 cents apiece, so those 75,000 bonus points are worth around $1,275. But they can potentially be worth much more if you redeem them in some of the following ways.

Just one important note before we dive into the best uses of the 75,000 Hyatt points. World of Hyatt is likely to introduce off-peak and peak pricing in the (very) near future. Right now, the exact timing is still to be determined, but Hyatt did say it would be mid-October 2021. For the below uses, we assumed standard pricing based on the current award chart — and if you’re intrigued by any of these options, you’ll be better off booking sooner rather than later.

Stay 5 nights at the Grand Hyatt Washington DC

For 75,000 points, you can stay in the heart of Washington, D.C. at the Grand Hyatt for a full five nights since it is a Category 4 hotel where award nights cost 15,000 points apiece.

The hotel is within walking distance of the White House, the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum and the United States Capital. That’s a lot of ground to cover, but the hotel’s location makes it easier than staying elsewhere in the city.

If you want to split up your stay with some time outside the city, you can combine your D.C. portion with a few nights at the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Golf Resort, Spa & Marina, which is also a Category 4 property. At less than two hours away from Washington, D.C.,, you can stay three nights exploring the city and two nights relaxing at the resort, or vice versa.

Stay 4 nights at the Grand Hyatt Baha Mar

With six pools, a brand new waterpark and crystal-clear waters, you can enjoy a luxurious stay at the Grand Hyatt Baha Mar in the Bahamas. But the hotel isn’t cheap, and the taxes and fees add up quickly. That is where redeeming your points comes into play.

After meeting the minimum spend on the welcome offer — which requires $7,500 spend within the first three months — you’ll earn at least 82,500 points (75,000 points from the bonus and at least 7,500 points from credit card spend). The Grand Hyatt Baha Mar is a Category 5 World of Hyatt property, costing 20,000 points a night. So 80,000 points will allow you to book four award nights free and clear. And best of all, when you redeem points for award stays, resort fees are waived.

My family stayed four nights at this property a few years back and thought it was the perfect amount of time. And if you happen to have any suite upgrades in your account (you earn two after meeting the 50- and 60-night Hyatt milestone bonus thresholds), the property offers some pretty amazing suites.

Stay 2 nights at the Topping Rose House

If a weekend stay in the Hamptons is something you’ve always dreamed of, now is your chance to book it.

Thanks to Hyatt’s partnership with Small Luxury Hotels of the World, you can redeem your Hyatt points at some otherwise inaccessible properties. One being the Topping Rose House in Bridgehampton, New York. It’s located on a beautiful property with posh rooms.

At 40,000 points a night, you’ll burn through your bonus quickly, but that might be worthwhile to save you from paying a whopping $495 per night throughout the fall.

Stay 15 nights at the Hyatt Place Rogers/Bentonville

With Category 1 properties costing only 5,000 points a night, you can stay up to 15 nights at many properties within the Hyatt umbrella. One of my favorites is the Hyatt Place Rogers/Bentonville.

While the Hyatt Place Rogers/Bentonville doesn’t scream luxury, it can be an interesting off-the-beaten path domestic destination. Nowadays, there’s a ton to do in Northwest Arkansas. From the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art to mountain biking in the Ozarks, you can easily keep a family or group of friends entertained.

Of course, you don’t have to spend 15 nights at a single Category 1 property. Other great options include the Hyatt House Colorado Springs, Hyatt House Houston/Galleria and Hyatt Regency Wichita.

Upgrade your stay with a club room

If you are paying for your next Hyatt stay, you can always upgrade your room to a club room.

This will not only get you a potentially better room, but it will also give you access to the hotels club lounge (due to ongoing COVID-related restrictions, you might want to check what amenities are available at a property you’re considering booking before using your points this way).

This is a benefit you’ll receive with Hyatt Globalist elite status or earning milestone benefits, but if you don’t fall into either category, you can instead use your points to receive the same perk.

With the current World of Hyatt award chart, you can redeem just 3,000 points per night to be upgraded to a “Regency Club/Grand Club” room. While all properties operate their lounges slightly differently, Hyatt is known to run some pretty incredible lounges.

For example, during a family trip to the Grand Hyatt Baha Mar, my family was able to enjoy daily breakfast and a handful of dinners in the lounge. It saved us a ton of money, while also making mealtime significantly easier with the kids.

Or, if you want to use points for your entire stay, many times you can also redeem a slightly higher number of points than the normal standard rate for a club room instead. The upcharge depends on the hotel category, but ranges between 2,000 to 10,000 points per night.

Bottom Line

With the addition of the World of Hyatt Business Credit Card, you can easily earn 75,000 bonus points (after meeting the minimum spend requirement) to increase your account balance. You can then redeem these points for everything from two nights in luxury to up to 15 nights in a more modest property.

And when you do spend on dining, you should use a credit card that will maximize your rewards and potentially even score special discounts. Thanks to temporary card bonuses and changes due to coronavirus, you may even be able to score a meal at your favorite restaurant for free. 

These are the best credit cards for dining out, taking out, and ordering in to maximize every meal purchase.
