World of Hyatt has brought back the popular Elite Tier offer for select corporate travelers that is valid for sign ups through November 29, 2019.
Eligible members will have their World of Hyatt status upgraded to Explorist for 90 days. Members must then consume 10 nights to have the status extended through February 2021 or 20 nights to get Globalist that usually requires 60 nights within a calendar year.
You can access and sign up for this offer on Hyatt’s website here.
You need to sign up for this offer using an eligible corporate email address. I would assume that companies like IBM, Accenture, Siemens, Deloitte etc. are eligible. The form will error out if you try to sign up using an email address which is not valid.
Here are World of Hyatt status perks:
This is a standard Elite Tier-offer from World of Hyatt, which they have had online previously, and it has been available through hotel sales departments as well (when not online).
You basically need to get 20 eligible nights in within 90 day period to get meaningful status (Globalist) with Hyatt.
Here are the terms and conditions of this promotion:
