The World of Hyatt Credit Card offers Discoverist status in the World of Hyatt rewards program for as long as the Hyatt Credit Card account is open and in good standing. Discoverist status includes benefits such as 10% bonus points on Hyatt spending, a free daily bottle of water, and late checkout upon request. In addition, cardholders have access to a dedicated check-in area, an exclusive reservation line, and more room options. For example, during check-in, cardholders are able to switch to a room with a better view or location – such as a seaside view, or a corner room – as long as it’s in the same category of rooms as the original reservation.
The Hyatt Credit Card is the only credit card that gives automatic World of Hyatt status. And even the Hyatt Card only gives status to the primary cardholder. Authorized users do not receive Discoverist status, unfortunately.
Discoverist status is Hyatt’s second membership tier, a step up from being a basic World of Hyatt member. In total, Hyatt has 5 levels of membership: Member, Discoverist, Explorist, Globalist, and Lifetime Globalist. Each status level above Member has its own qualification requirements based on nights spent at Hyatt, purchases that earn World of Hyatt base points, meetings and events held at Hyatt, or a combination of the three.
With that in mind, the Hyatt Credit Card’s offer of two qualifying night credits per $5,000 spent makes it easier to obtain and maintain World of Hyatt Explorist status each year. Explorist status would give 20% bonus points on Hyatt spending, allow for better room upgrades at check-in, and guarantee room availability if you book 72 hours in advance.
