Check World of Hyatt Free Night Certificate Spend
One of my favorite long term cards is the World of Hyatt card. That is because it offers nice perks like 5 elite night credits, a free night certificate each anniversary and the ability to earn more elite night credits via spend. One other perk, and a reason the card gets at least $15,000 in spend each year, is the ability to earn a second free night certificate. You can do this by putting $15K in spend on your card each calendar year. This used to be based on your card anniversary, which was annoying, but that changed a year or so ago. I absolutely love this change for simplicity's sake. It also makes it way easier to check World of Hyatt free night certificate spend on your account and see your progress. Here is a quick how to guide on it.
How To Check Your Hyatt $15K Free Night Spend Progress
I recently had to do this when paying my taxes so figured I would put a quick how to guide together for anyone else interested. A chunk of our tax payment finished up the minimum spend on another card but I needed an option for the rest. I settled on my World of Hyatt card for the remainder of the tax payment. It was one listed as a good option on our paying your taxes with a credit card guide. Well, as long as you are working on your free night certificate spend at least. I needed to make sure that I had enough cap left on my $15K spend requirement to cover it. I usually stop spending on my card once I hit the $15,000 mark, unless I need a few more elite night credits.
Step 1: Log Into Your Chase Account & Select Your World of Hyatt Card
First up is pretty obvious, log into your Chase account. I do this on my computer so these steps and screenshots will be from there. I find it is usually best to do this kind of stuff on a desktop / laptop. It could just be that I am old too (get off my lawn!).
Once in there select your Hyatt card to get the recent transaction detail etc.
Step 2: Find Your World Of Hyatt Card Spending Report
Once you are in your World of Hyatt card account click the More option on the right side to get the dropdown list to open up. After that select Spending Report.
Step 3: Look At Your Year To Date Spending
Once you are in the Spending Report area you want to make sure Year-to-date is selected (it should be the default option). Right below that will show your total spend for the year. As you can see, my total so far this year is $14,362.01. That means I only need to spend $637.99 more to trigger my free night certificate from $15K in spend for the year. It also gives you a full breakdown of your spending by category if you are interested in that.
I could finish that spend quickly, or I could sit on it for a bit to extend the expiration date on the free night certificate. I'll likely use the free night quickly, so I'll go ahead and complete the spend. But, if you didn't have travel plans over the next several months it may be better to wait a bit. There is no reason to rush to get it if you know you won't use it soon. That just gets you closer to the certificate's expiration date.
Warning: Spending Can Be Delayed A Bit
I should also note that these figures will not be up to the minute. If you have some purchases pending, or had some recently settled, then this number will not be 100% accurate. It is best to check after you haven't used the card for a few days if you want pinpoint accuracy.

You should now know how to quickly check World of Hyatt free night certificate spending progress. This is a lot easier than going through old statements and adding things up. You know, like we had to do in the old days when the spending was based on cardmember year.
Let me know if you have any questions over in the ToP Facebook Group. This should be repeatable for other Chase cards with similar offers. It could also come in handy if you wanted to see how far along you are into your welcome offer. Looks like it is time for me to finish off $600+ in spend for my next Hyatt stay!
