World of Hyatt has a much easier path to both their mid-tier (Explorist) and top-tier (Globalist) status right now. Their top-tier Globalist status is still my favorite hotel status.
Hyatt made a bunch of changes earlier this year, including the qualifications for their elite levels. Back when top-tier status was labeled “Diamond”, it took 25 stays or 50 nights to achieve. With the new program, it’ll take you a minimum of 60 nights to qualify. And, Hyatt removed the path to get there via stays (though they did add one based on how much you spend each year).
If you’re eligible for the offer, you’ll immediately receive mid-tier Explorist status. 10 paid nights in the following 90 days will earn you Explorist status through February, 2019. 20 paid nights in the following 90 days earns you top-tier Globalist status through February, 2019.
Even though this offer is targeted, Hyatt has shown some flexibility if you speak with an agent. It’s unlikely that you’ll qualify if you already have Explorist or Globalist status for 2017 (but haven’t earned it for 2018). However, it can’t hurt to ask.
You can try the registration link on the Hyatt website. If that doesn’t work, it may be worth calling. As Ajay notes, it appears employees of Apple and HP qualify.
The Final Two Pennies
I keep trying to read the tea leaves to see if I can figure out how successful Hyatt’s new program is. Achieving Globalist status is a lot harder than Diamond, though it’s more rewarding. This fast track offer is consistent with previous offerings Hyatt has had. Still no clear sense if World of Hyatt is performing as expected. But, shortcuts to elite status are never a bad thing. I’m not sure it’s worth committing 10 nights to Hyatt to achieve Explorist status, but 20 nights for Globalist is an offer to jump on if you’re eligible.
Please let me know if you qualify for this offer. I’m curious to see how widespread it is.
