Below, I outline the main ways in which to earn and accumulate Hyatt Gold Passport points.
1. Visit a Hyatt or a Las Vegas M Life Resort and spend $
Gold Passport members earn five Hyatt Gold Passport points for every eligible dollar spent at Hyatt and M Life Resorts. These dollars can be spent on hotel stays, and even on spa and restaurant charges even if you are not staying at the hotel. (Some exceptions apply). Note however, points awarded for non-stay charges (like restaurant and spa) will not count towards earning Hyatt Gold Passport Elite status. Speaking of Elite Status, Platinum members receive a 15% point bonus on base points and Diamond receive a 30% point bonus on base points.
2. Use your Chase Hyatt Visa credit card
With a Chase Hyatt Visa credit card, Gold Passport Members earn……. 3 points for every $1 spent at all Hyatt properties 2 points for every $1 spent at restaurants, on airline tickets purchased directly from the airline and at car rental agencies. 1 point for every $1 spent anywhere else you use the card. If you do not already have the Chase Hyatt Visa credit card, you can apply here. New card members receive 2 FREE NIGHTS after spending $1,000 within the first 3 months and the annual fee of $75 is waived the first year.
3. Transfer points from you Chase Ultimate Rewards account
If you are a Chase Ultimate Rewards member you can transfer you can transfer your Ultimate Rewards points, in 1,000-point increments, to your Hyatt Gold Passport account. Your points always transfer at 1:1 value. That means one point equals one Gold Passport point. 4. Rent a car at Avis Gold Passport members earn 300 bonus points for each qualifying rental at participating Avis locations worldwide. A Hyatt stay is not required, simply request Hyatt Gold Passport points at the rental counter.
