Hyatt Credit Card Cardmembers Get Rebate on Award Redemptions Through September 30

I receive compensation for content and many links on this blog. You don’t have to use these links, but I am grateful to you if you do. American Express, Citibank, Chase, Capital One and other banks are advertising partners of this site. Any opinions expressed in this post are my own, and have not been reviewed, approved, or endorsed by my advertising partners. I do not write about all credit cards that are available -- instead focusing on miles, points, and cash back (and currencies that can be converted into the same).

Like last year, 2016 and in 2015, Hyatt is offering co-brand credit card cardmembers a rebate on points redeemed.

They’re giving all Hyatt cardmembers 10% back on redemptions made between August 1 and September 30, 2018. Registration is required by August 31, and Avis car rental certificate redemptions and points transferred to airline miles aren’t eligible. The rebate applies to free night awards, cash and points, suite upgrades, and dining and spa redemptions.

Last year there was a three month period for the 10% rebate. The year before it was nearly four months. And in 2015 it was nearly 5 months and a 20% rebate. So the offer isn’t as generous as in the past, but it’s certainly welcome.

It’s worth registering now. They promise rebates will post 6-8 weeks after redemption, however in the past they’ve posted more quickly than that for me.

Crucially you do not have to have had the Hyatt co-brand card prior to the start of the promotion to register and become eligible, if you get the card prior to registration cut-off and register you’ll still be eligible for the rebate. And pre-existing award reservations count for this promotion, there’s no need to cancel and rebook.

This offer makes transfers to Hyatt — already the best hotel partner use of Ultimate Rewards points — an even better use of your Chase Sapphire Preferred, Chase Ink Business Preferred Credit Card, and other eligible Chase card points.

I don’t have major award stays to make over the next few months, but at the margin this offer will:

Even with this rebate remember that it’s never a good idea to spend your points in-hotel on dining or spa.

  1. Don’t see any language about needing to book after registering. I made 45000 worth of point bookings last week. Do you think I’m safe or should cancel and rebook?

  2. Similar question. If I book now for a stay in the bonus period, do I get the rebate? The terms say the rebate is for points redeemed between 8/1-9/30. Points are redeemed at time of booking, not time of stay.

  3. I’ve registered for this promotion. If I cancel my card durin the promo period, will I still get the points rebate?

  4. These kind of promotions are not really welcome. First, because registration is required (why?) the only purpose of which is to deny somebody who doesn’t read email. Second, because it will just piss off those of us who don’t have redemptions during the limited window.

    The much much BETTER course is to emulate the Chase IC card which provides a 10% rebate on ALL redemptions. That’s a perk that cardholders value, not some one-off strictly limited promo.
