As of October 2019, World of Hyatt points are worth approximately $0.015 USD each. This means 1,000 World of Hyatt points are worth about $15.00 USD, and 50,000 World of Hyatt points are worth about $750.00.

This also makes World of Hyatt points more valuable than Hilton, IHG, or Marriott points, but less valuable than Accor points.

Since guests earn 5 points for each dollar spent at most Hyatt brands, before any elite status bonuses, this means you get an effective rebate of 7.5% — in the form of World of Hyatt points — on spending with Hyatt. This rebate percentage is higher than those for Hilton, IHG, or Marriott.

Those with the highest elite status level, Globalist, get a 30% points bonus, meaning they earn an effective rebate of 9.8% on spending with Hyatt. This elite status rebate rate significantly trails Hilton and Marriott but is on par with most other hotel loyalty programs.

The co-branded Chase World of Hyatt Credit Card, with $95 annual fee, earns 4 points per dollar spent at Hyatt brands and properties and 2 points per dollar spent on restaurants, airfare (when directly purchased from airline), local transit and commuting, and gym memberships. All other purchases earn 1 point per dollar spent.

This works out to an effective rebate of 6% at Hyatt, 3% on the bonus restaurant, airfare, and gym membership categories, and 1.5% on all other purchases.
