Amex Offers for Hyatt hotels

Early in 2022 we saw our first Amex Offer targeting Hyatt. Well…Amex Offers is back with another one targeting Hyatt properties in Mexico, and another for Grand Hyatt properties. Let’s take a look

Note the Mexico offers excludes the AMR properties, but if you’re looking to hit up a Hyatt Ziva like I did in Puerto Vallarta a few years ago, you could save some mulah via this Amex Offer. Let’s take a look.

If you read the blog often, you know I’m a huge advocate and fan of Amex Offers. While Amex cards that don’t carry a fee get targeted, I often have instances where my some of my cards get the offer and others do not. My Amex Gold had the offer and none of my other 10 cards got it.

The more offers I see targeting annual fee cards, the lower the net cost actually is, and the more the benefits outweigh the costs.

If you’re unfamiliar with Amex Offers you can read our full breakdown here.

Here are the 10 American Express Cards that I keep and links to their current offers and why we have them in our wallet and recommend your consideration.

We keep an up to date spreadsheet that lists the best ever offers: You can find that spreadsheet here.

Historically 80k is a very, very good offer and hit in both 2022 and 2023. In 2021, we saw the offer hit an all time high of 100k. Who knows if that will ever come back.

Main Cast: 

Cards that earn flexible points and should be used on the bulk of your purchases.

Supporting Cast:

Cards that earn fixed points in the currency of the airline/hotel and can not be transferred at attractive rates. These cards yield benefits that make it worth keeping, but not necessarily worth putting a lot of your everyday spend on. 

The Chase Sapphire Preferred® is exceptional starter card and offers transferrable Ultimate Rewards, and pairs well with other Chase cards.

If you carry this card alongside Chase’s cashback cards like the Chase Freedom Flex®  and Chase Freedom Unlimited® or the business versions: Ink Business Cash® , Ink Business Unlimited® you can combine the points into Preferred account and transfer into hotel and airline partners

Annual fee is quite low at $95 a year + you get a 10% anniversary bonus on points + $50 hotel credit in Chase travel.
