At the beginning of the month I wrote about a promotion being offered by The Hyatt Credit Card. Specifically, the card is offering a $30 statement credit when you cumulatively spend $300 on purchases at grocery stores and/or drug stores in the US between February 1 and February 28, 2018 using the card. Cardmembers must register for the promotion and then spend the $300 in order to receive the credit. The statement credit should post within six to eight weeks of completing the eligible spend. Any combination of eligible spend over the period qualifies.

I’m writing about this again because the promotion ends on Wednesday, February 28, 2018, so you have until tomorrow to make any last minute grocery store or drug store purchases. I’m sure I’m not alone in often registering for these promotions and then forgetting to actually complete the spend requirement. I completed about $250 in qualifying spend so far this month, so today or tomorrow I’m going to spend that last $50. Worst case scenario I’ll buy a gift card for the remaining amount, which should still trigger the bonus.

If you have the card, then taking advantage of this promotion is a no brainer, in my opinion. Getting a $30 statement credit on $300 of spend is the equivalent of 10% back. On top of that you earn one World of Hyatt point per dollar spent. I value those points at ~1.5 cents each, so to me that means this is the equivalent of an ~11.5% return on $300 worth of eligible spend.

This is only one of the many great perks of The Hyatt Credit Card. It has an annual fee of just $75, and offers an anniversary free night certificate valid at a Category 1-4 property, Discoverist status for as long as you have the card, a sign-up bonus of 40,000 World of Hyatt points after spending $2,000 within three months, and a further 5,000 points if you add an authorized user and they make a purchase in that same period.

Then there are fairly frequent cardmember promotions, like this one, which in many cases help offset the annual fee even further.

Did you end up taking advantage of this promotion on The Hyatt Credit Card?

  1. I’ve got just over $300 in combined purchases at grocery stores and drug stores as of last thurs and still no credit. However, $90 of that was at Smart & Final. I’m only mostly sure that counts as a grocery store so I’m thinking another grocery visit is in order for today, just to be sure. I remember that the Whole Foods promo credited almost immediately.

  2. I tweeted Hyatt about the pharmacy thing and they said:

    “Please know it can take 6-8 weeks for the statement credit to be applied. You can split up your transactions however you like and as long as it is within the parameters of the promotion you will get your statement credit. “
