World of Hyatt loyalty program has been busy today sending out emails to credit card holders and extending them an invitation to earn status three times faster between September 1 – December 30, 2017.
Chase Hyatt credit card holders can extend or qualify for Globalist status through February 2019 by consuming 20 qualifying nights during the promo period. Explorist status requires 10 nights.
You can access this offer on Hyatt’s website here.
Here’s the chart that Hyatt has up on the website:
Has World of Hyatt started to show dome desperation here? Perhaps member numbers are starting to look soft? Cannot see any other reason for an offer such as this.
I believe that Hyatt didn’t play their hand well with the loyalty program relaunch. They are significantly smaller chain compared to others and their worldwide footprint outside of North America is limited.
Offer such as this really is really the polar opposite of what Hyatt told they were after with the World of Hyatt. They weren’t after “gamers” that merely qualified with the minimum number of stays yet here they are allowing some members to qualify with mere 20 nights. Lower than what the Diamond qualification requirements on stays were with the Gold Passport.
Interesting to see what the “World of Hyatt” will bring in 2018 now that the Zidell was shown the door.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
1 The promotion is valid only for Hyatt Credit Cardmembers in good standing who receive this promotional offer from Hyatt and register for the promotion between August 28, 2017 and September 30, 2017. To qualify for this offer, account must be open and not in default at the time of fulfillment. A Hyatt Credit Cardmember may earn Explorist or Globalist status in the World of Hyatt program through February 2019 by completing a specified number of Tier-Qualifying Nights (as defined in the World of Hyatt program terms, available at worldofhyatt.com/terms) at any participating Hyatt hotel or resort worldwide. Only stays completed between September 1, 2017 and December 30, 2017 (“Qualification Period”) will be eligible for this promotion. To qualify for Globalist status, member must complete twenty (20) Tier-Qualifying Nights during the Qualification Period. To qualify for Explorist status, member must complete ten (10) Tier-Qualifying Nights during the Qualification Period. To earn credit towards this offer, member must check out of a reservation during the Qualification Period. If member checks into a reservation during the Qualification Period, but does not check out until after the Qualification Period has ended, (s)he will not earn credit towards this offer for any nights stayed as part of that reservation. Stays completed by member prior to the start of the Qualification Period will not count towards this offer (even if any night stayed otherwise qualifies as a “Tier-Qualifying Night” for purposes of the World of Hyatt program.)
Qualification Period may not be extended. If member earns a new elite status through this offer, his/her new status will be applied within 7 business days of checkout of the stay during which (s)he completes the applicable requirement. If a member has already earned a particular elite status in 2017, satisfying the above-described criteria to earn that same tier (or any lower tier) will not result in any extension of the member’s elite status or other benefit to the member.
