MSN has partnered with The Points Guy for our coverage of credit card products. MSN and The Points Guy may receive a commission from card issuers.

World of Hyatt credit cardmembers can earn valuable elite status twice as fast with two tier-qualifying night credits for each night stay at Andaz hotels and resorts through Dec. 23, 2021.

If you hold either a World of Hyatt card or a World of Hyatt Business card you need to first register for this new promotion by Dec. 23. Free night awards count, as do existing Andaz bookings, provided you register before your stay.

You generally cannot book with third-party sites (Expedia,, etc) and still earn Hyatt elite status credit, so booking directly with Hyatt is typically the way to go. Only the room occupied by the World of Hyatt member will count for the promotion.

While Andaz does not have a huge footprint across the globe, there are some great properties you can maximize this promotion at, including TPG favorite, the Andaz Mayakoba, Mexico.

Remember, Hyatt has cut elite status requirements by 50% for the 2021 qualification year. Any status earned in 2021 will be valid through Feb. 28, 2023.

  • Discoverist: Stay five tier-qualifying nights or earn 12,500 base points ($2,500 in spending)
  • Explorist: Stay 15 tier-qualifying nights or earn 25,000 base points ($5,000 in spending)
  • Globalist: Stay 30 tier-qualifying nights or earn 50,000 base points ($10,000 in spending)

World of Hyatt Globalist elite status is a favorite among the TPG team. Many of our staff make it an annual priority to earn it to reap its top-tier benefits, including suite upgrades, late checkout and more. Hyatt Globalist status usually requires 60 qualifying nights spent in a Hyatt property per year, but with the reduced requirements for 2021, you can achieve it with 30 nights. That number reduces even further if you pick up the World of Hyatt card.

In addition to the up to 60,000-point sign-up bonus (30,000 bonus points after you spend $3,000 on purchases in your first three months from account opening, plus up to 30,000 additional bonus points by earning 2 bonus points total per $1 spent in the first six months from account opening on purchases that normally earn 1 bonus point, on up to $15,000 spent), you automatically get five tier-qualifying nights each year just by having the card. Then, you can earn two additional tier-qualifying night credits for every $5,000 you spend on the card as well as double night credits at Andaz hotels and resorts with this promotion.

The World of Hyatt Business Credit Card currently offers 75,000 World of Hyatt points after spending $7,500 on purchases within the first three months from account opening. You will also earn five nights for every $10,000 spent on the card. You can gift up to 5 Discoverist statuses to others, and they do not have to be employees. Five elite statuses with one card is pretty hard to beat. What’s more, there is no fee for employee business cards.

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