I just received this from Hyatt:
We are excited to announce that Hyatt just launched a special promotion for Hyatt Credit Cardmembers to upgrade their status three times faster. Effective starting today, Monday, 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.
This is awesome!
For those with a Hyatt Credit Card, this is an easy way to boost your status, though I won’t be too happy when Hyatt inflates the ranks and benefits become thinned out. For example, the more Globalists at a property, the less suite upgrades, etc. Still, for those without Hyatt status, it’s a great way to get mid to top tier status for less nights.
