Easiest way to use up CSR travel credit?
Still have ~$200 in unused travel credit for this year. What’s the easiest/best way to use it up today? Will buying Hyatt gift cards work?
As long as they’re processed by Hyatt they should. You could also buy airline gift cards in $50 increments as that usually works.
TPG had a post about this in September: [URL]http://thepointsguy.com/2016/09/which-purchases-count-as-travel-chase-sapphire-reserve/[/URL]
Can someone confirm whether Hyatt GCs are processed by Hyatt? When I go through their website to buy it, the url changes to buyatab.com even though the Hyatt branding stays on the website.
Hyatt hotels sell gift cards so you could walk into a hotel close by and get one. The important question is what your statement closing date is. If your December statement has closed you will actually be using next year’s credit since Chase goes by statement year not calendar year like AX.
