If you have a World of Hyatt Credit Card, you are in luck! Hyatt just announced an incredibly easy way to earn 5,000 points simply by using your credit card. With this promotion, the more swipes you make, the more points you earn. And although it might look like you have to use your card quite a bit during the month to maximize the promotion, it is actually quite easy. You must register for this promotion by Feb. 28, 2021.
The number of points you earned is based on the number of swipes you make between Feb. 1 and Feb. 28, 2021:
- 10 transactions = 1,000 bonus points
- 15 transactions = 1,000 bonus points
- 25 transactions = 2,500 bonus points
- 50+ transactions = 5,000 bonus points
Maximizing the promotion
Now, you’re probably saying to yourself that there is no way you usually use your credit card 50 times within the month. And for most people, that is probably true — especially given that February is a short month.
However, Amazon makes it incredibly easy to purchase gift cards in all increment amounts.
Now, only purchases over $1.00 will count. But, Amazon makes it incredibly easy to purchase gift cards in all increment amounts. With this promotion only purchases over $1.00 will count, so you can easily make fifty $1.01 gift card purchases.
Once you purchase the gift card, you can then easily load the amount into your Amazon account so you don’t have to worry about losing the email.
My recommendation is to use the card throughout the month and then at the end of the month, if you need any more transactions, Amazon is an easy route to maximize the points earned.
While 5,000 bonus points won’t get you a free night stay at a luxury resort all on its own, it will get you a free night at a category 1 property, or can be added to your account balance to redeem anyway you desire. I personally value Hyatt points at around 2 cents apiece, so this promotion is worth around $100 in my books.

Note: Hyatt just recently announced a 60,000 point offer, but the refer-a-friend link will in fact earn you more points!
