World of Hyatt is making some changes to its guest loyalty program in March 2019 by launching Milestone Rewards.
Members will earn Club lounge award sooner, two suite night awards at 50 nights and another two at 60, and Qualifying for Globalist at 55 nights is discontinued.
You can access this announcement on Hyatt’s website here.
Here are the Milestone Rewards:
Here are the World of Hyatt rewards earned at various steps:
World of Hyatt is reasonable program for someone mainly traveling in the United States. They just don’t have enough properties worldwide to be anyone’s main program.
Here’s the small print about this change:
1Club lounge access awards can now be earned sooner at each milestone outlined in the chart above, and will no longer be awarded with Explorist status. In 2019, members can earn a maximum of four Club access awards whether they 1) earn Explorist status January 1 – February 28 or 2) stay 30 qualifying nights or earn 50,000 Base Points over the course of a calendar year. Completing more than one of these actions will not earn additional Club access awards. In 2020, Club access awards will only be awarded as follows: 2 at 20 qualifying nights or 35,000 Base Points and 2 more at 30 qualifying nights or 50,000 Base Points.
2Valid when paying an eligible rate or when redeeming points for a free night or Points + Cash award. See new Program Terms for more details.
3A Member who earns four suite upgrade awards by completing the qualifying night and/or Base Point-earning requirements between January 1, 2019, and February 28, 2019, will still receive those four awards, but will not receive any additional Suite upgrade awards in the remainder of 2019.
4Starting in 2020, all members, including existing Globalists, must complete 60 qualifying nights (including paid and award nights), earn 100,000 Base Points, or hold 20 qualifying meetings/events in a calendar year to qualify or requalify for Globalist status. The previous World of Hyatt benefit that allowed eligible Globalists to requalify for Globalist status with 55 qualifying nights will be closed to new Globalists as of 1/1/19 and discontinued for all members as of 1/1/20.
