Starting today, through December 23, 2021 , both World Of Hyatt Credit Card and World of Hyatt Business Credit Card cardmembers receive two elite qualifying nights for each night stayed at an Andaz property. Registration is required and eligibility of stays is based on checkout date.
As it is elite qualification requirements were cut in half this year. Globalist status requires just 30 nights, and that includes the annual nights that come with the World Of Hyatt Credit Card and the elite nights earned from spending on both cards.
This gives cardmembers an easy last push towards status, and of course even those that have already received the status they want see rewards for pushing further. Remember that free night awards, confirmed suite upgrades, and a dedicated concierge come from elite nights earned rather than status. And Hyatt offers incremental perks for every 10 nights up to 100 elite nights for the year.

I actually love hitting 70 night thresholds and beyond during the last quarter of the year. That’s because you get 90 days to select your preferred benefit. So I wait to choose suite upgrades until January of the following year, and doing so causes them to have an extra year’s expiration (great for stays booked far in advance, before you’re earned more in the following year).

Do your Andaz stay in a major U.S. city and double dip with a bonus 1000 AAdvantage miles. Bear in mind that award stays count as stays and promotional earning with Hyatt, so you can even transfer Chase points into Hyatt and redeem them for Andaz stays during the promo period to use this offer.
