Gone are the days when earning credit card and loyalty points on the same transaction was considered a fantastic deal. Nowadays, it’s become the norm. What’s on trend now is the opportunity to earn credit card points, hotel points, as well as airline miles all at once.

For example, when booking a hotel stay, you can earn reward points on your credit card, loyalty points with the hotel, and even a few airline miles. The same goes for flight bookings – you can earn points and miles from multiple sources.

It’s important to note that this isn’t about choosing between hotel points or airline miles; it’s about earning both.

Accor Hotels has partnered with Flying Blue (Air France and KLM), Qatar Airways, and Qantas to allow customers to earn miles and points for their flights as well as hotel stays.

Similarly, Marriott has partnerships with United Airlines and with Emirates for customers to earn points and miles simultaneously.

Hyatt also has a partnership with American Airlines, although it is more limited in scope.

World of Hyatt and American Airlines AAdvantage elite members have the opportunity to earn both World of Hyatt points and AAdvantage miles for their spending with either company.

However, unlike Accor and Marriott, some form of elite status is required to register for this promotion. If you are in the US, you can get Hyatt Discoverist elite status with the Hyatt Credit Card.

Hyatt – AA partnership benefits.

The benefits vary depending on your elite status with each program.

If you are a Hyatt Discoverist, Explorist, or Globalist member, you can earn 1 World of Hyatt Bonus Point for every eligible $1 USD spent on qualifying American Airlines flights in addition to the AAdvantage miles you already earn as an AAdvantage member.

You can link your accounts here.

If you have AAdvantage Gold status or higher, you can earn 1 AAdvantage base mile for every eligible $1 spent on qualifying Hyatt stays and experiences alongside your World of Hyatt points. ConciergeKey members even have the opportunity to receive Globalist status, the highest tier for World of Hyatt members.

You can link your accounts here.

To take advantage of these benefits, you can link your accounts with either program.

If you have elite status with both Hyatt and American Airlines, you only need to link your accounts once to enjoy all the above-mentioned perks.

Maximize your points.

If you frequently fly with American Airlines and stay at Hyatt hotels, it is highly recommended to sign up for this program to maximize your points. Additionally, both Hyatt and American Airlines offer co-branded credit cards that allow you to earn even more rewards for your stays and flights.


Earning multiple points and miles on the same transaction has become the norm now.

By taking advantage of partnerships between hotels, airlines, and credit card companies, customers can earn rewards with multiple programs simultaneously, and one shouldn’t miss this opportunity.
