World of Hyatt has brought back Explorist, and Globalist Elite Tier Offer for 2020. Eligible members must sign up by November 16, 2020.
You must stay 10 nights within 90 day period to earn Explorist or 20 to get Globalist. Current Explorist members can use this as a fast track for Globalist qualification.
You can access this offer on Hyatt’s website here.
Note that this Elite Tier Offer is open for employees from select organizations that I would assume are companies such as Accenture and IBM. You must register using your company email address.
Here are the standard Tier qualification requirements:
Explorist tier requires typically 30 nights or 50,000 base points ($10K in spend) and Globalist 60 nights or 100,000 base points within a calendar year.
Here are the elite benefits:
The Globalist benefits are excellent, but Explorist ones just by themselves are not. You would normally earn milestone rewards on your way to Globalist qualification.
It makes sense for Hyatt to try to win business from corporate travelers and fast track them to Explorist or Globalist status. I would assume that there are readers that can use this offer once the current coronavirus pandemic is over.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
General Terms: To qualify for this offer, World of Hyatt members must register between March 16, 2020, and
General Terms: November 16, 2020. Offer only valid for World of Hyatt members who are employed by an entity that has received an invitation from Hyatt for its employees to participate in this offer (any a “Qualifying Entity”). If you are not sure whether you work for a Qualifying Entity, check with your corporate travel manager. To participate, an eligible member must register with his or her valid email address issued by the Qualifying Entity (e.g., business email) through the dedicated offer-registration URL provided by Hyatt to the applicable Qualifying Entity. (If you need the URL, please ask your corporate travel manager.) Limit one offer per member. Only Qualifying Nights completed during the Explorist Trial Period or Qualification Period will count towards with this offer. Stays completed by member prior to the start of his or her Explorist Trial Period or 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). To earn credit towards this offer, member must check out of a reservation during his or her Explorist Trial Period or Qualification Period (each defined below), as applicable. If member checks into a reservation during his or her Explorist Trial Period or Qualification Period, but does not check out until after the Explorist Trial Period or Qualification Period has ended, (s)he will not earn credit towards this offer for any nights stayed as part of that reservation. Explorist Trial Period and Qualification Period begin at registration and may not be extended. Hyatt reserves the right to alter or withdraw this offer at any time without notice. This offer is subject to the complete terms and conditions of the World of Hyatt program, available at worldofhyatt.com/terms.
Explorist Trial: Upon registration, World of Hyatt members with standard membership or Discoverist status will receive a trial upgrade to Explorist status for 90 days (“Explorist Trial Period”). The trial will provide the member with the benefits of Explorist status, as set forth in the World of Hyatt program terms, provided that the member will not receive any Club Lounge Access Awards (as defined in the World of Hyatt program terms) or be eligible to tier match into Gold status with M life Rewards, the loyalty program of MGM Resorts International, as part of the trial. To maintain Explorist status through February 2022, member must complete at least ten (10) Tier-Qualifying Nights (as defined in the World of Hyatt program terms) at any participating Hyatt hotel or resort worldwide during his or her Explorist Trial Period. If member completes at least twenty (20) Tier-Qualifying Nights at any participating Hyatt hotel or resort worldwide during his or her Explorist Trial Period, member will receive Globalist status through February 2022. Night Credits for Tier-Qualifying Nights awarded or obtained through any means other than a hotel stay (i.e. World of Hyatt Credit Card night credits or World of Hyatt promotional night credits) will not count for this offer. 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.
Globalist Quick-Qualify for Current Explorists: Upon registration, World of Hyatt members with Explorist status will have the opportunity to earn Globalist status through February 2022 by completing at least twenty (20) Tier-Qualifying Nights at any participating Hyatt hotel or resort worldwide within 90 days of registration. (This 90-day period is referred to as the member’s “Qualification Period.”) If member satisfies the above requirements during the Qualification Period, they will receive Globalist membership valid through February 2022. The offer will provide the member with the benefits of Globalist membership, provided that the member will not receive Complimentary Suite Upgrade Awards, a Category 1-7 Free Night Award or My Hyatt Concierge (as defined in the World of Hyatt program terms). His/her new status will be applied within 7 business days of checkout of the stay during which (s)he completes the offer requirements.
