Award Stays Count Towards Hyatt Business Card’s Double Elite Nights

Earlier this week Chase launched a new offer on their World of Hyatt Business card. The points part of the welcome offer didn’t change, but the chance to rack up elite night credits did. The new offer on the card would allow people to earn double elite night credits for the rest of the year. That is pretty awesome for anyone chasing Hyatt Globalist status. The really cool thing is the promotion stacks with the Journey offer as well which means you can earn up to 3 elite nights for every single night you book at resorts that qualify for both promotions.

A reader asked if award stays will count towards the World of Hyatt Business card‘s double night promotion on my post earlier this week. I said that I was pretty sure that it would because they have counted for most every other World of Hyatt promotion but decided to reach out for confirmation as well.  Our Hyatt contact has confirmed this to be the case. Award stays can earn double elite night credits for new cardholders too!

That means if you can find a category 1 off peak award night that would be only 1,750 points per elite night (3,500 per night / 2 elite night credits). If you started with 0 nights that would be a cost of just 105,000 points for top tier status. That is probably a pipe dream, finding 30 nights off peak at a tier one hotel, but it shows how powerful this promo can be in your quest for status.

  1. Any ideas what will happen for stays towards the end of the year if the promo nights post after the first of the year? Will those promo nights still count for 2022 or 2023?

  2. I applied on 10/5. Called in on 10/7 and told I was approved. Had a stay on Sept. My first statement closed Nov 1st. Got the SUB but no double night yet. Should I be worried? Screen at application said double night promo. Got to be based on application date not approval date, right?

    • I wouldn’t worry about it yet. It took people a few months to have them post the first time around.

  3. I just got a response from chase: Qualifying Night Credits (QNC) are not immediate and will take 8 weeks from the date of stay to reflect your member account. Please know that this is a credit card reward, therefore the stays must be charged on your Hyatt business card in order to qualify. Does that mean reward night would not be counted?

      • Greetings! Have you received any reports of people actually having the double elite nights post? I booked a night on points during the promotional period and have not receive the bonus night. Any suggestion on who to contact to rectify this?
