Hyatt launched a new promo for Hyatt credit card holders that will allow you to get Hyatt Globalist (top-tier status) with only 20 nights between September 1 – December 31, 2017.
Get Hyatt Globalist Status with Only 20 Nights
Here are the details about this fast track promo that can help you achieve Explorist or Globalist status.
Effective starting August 28 all cardmembers can register for this promotion. If they stay a minimum number of tier qualifying nights at any Hyatt hotel or resort between September 1, 2017 and December 30, 2017, they will earn a new elite status through February 2019.
- To qualify for Explorist status, cardmembers must complete 10 nights (normally 30 nights)
- To qualify for Globalist status, cardmembers must complete 20 nights (normally 60 nights)
Here are some of the highlighted benefits you can enjoy with upgraded status:
- Explorist status can access room upgrades (excluding suites), and 4 Club lounge access awards, which include daily breakfast.
- Globalist status can enjoy room upgrades (up to standard suites), 4:00 PM late checkout upon request, and Club lounge access.
New Cardmembers are eligible for the promotion as long as they register with their World of Hyatt membership number by September 30, 2017. Cardmembers do not need to cancel and rebook existing reservations.
While this is a slap in the face to the people that will or already have achieved Globalist status the regular way, this is a good way to stop current customers and cardholders from completely jumping ship since the introduction of Hyatt Globalist. It still keeps some elements of the “real” Globalist status in tact anyway since people that achieve Globalist with this promo will not receive the free Category 1 – 7 night or the 4 suite upgrades (though still will be eligible to get upgraded at check-in).
For me, this will probably push me to go for Globalist. I already have enough nights for the rest of the year to put me only 9 nights away from hitting the 20 this promo requires and I do value the perks of Globalist status enough (such as free breakfasts for our family, suite upgrades, late checkout, etc) that I will try to hit it.
At the end of the day, situations like mine are exactly what Hyatt was hoping for. We will see if it is enough for Hyatt.
