(Here is a full card review by 10xT Contributor Julie S)
Personally I got this card and used the bonus points to book 2 free nights at the world-renowned Park Hyatt Tokyo (from the movie Lost in Translation) for my recent trip to Japan. I had my wife do the same and we were able to cover our entire 4 night stay there. Rooms typically go for $600+ per night.
The annual free night perk also makes this card worth keeping long term for many travelers, though the category 1-4 restriction is less than ideal.
You’ll get better spending rewards on either of the Chase Sapphire products (particularly because Chase Ultimate Rewards transfer 1:1 to Hyatt) but this card is still a good grab for the bonus and ongoing perks.
