I wrote an in depth hack on how to hit Hyatt’s top tier Globalist status in just 9 or 10 nights in early December 2020, and it wasn’t a theoretical post. I was actually amidst my own mattress run, and it has certainly paid off… I just checked my account, and voila, I have surpassed the reduced, 30 night threshold, and hit Hyatt Globalist Status for this year, which doesn’t expire until 2/28/2023. The craziest thing is that my account shows 31 nights stayed this year. It’s just the 9th of January!
My Club Access Awards have already hit too!
I haven’t seen my free category 4 night populate yet, but I’m sure I’ll hit it soon.
How did I do it?
First off you have to remember that Hyatt Status requirement shave been slashed in half.
Hyatt currently is running a double elite night promo. Until the end of February you’ll earn 2 elite nights for every night you stay.
But… in 2020, you could earn one elite night for 2020 and one elite night in 2021. During that promo period I stayed 18 total nights. This meant I was starting out the year with 18 elite nights.
I also signed up for the World of Hyatt credit card from Chase. When I applied and was approved the offer included 10 elite nights for 2020 and an additional 10 elite nights for 2021.
That boosted my total to 28 elite nights.
I just finished a 3 night stay at a cheap Hyatt Place which only cost 72/night and I was targeted for a 10% Chase offer, bringing it down to just $65/night. It was a quick trip I needed to do for my upcoming 2021 move.
I couldn’t be more excited to put top tier status to work
I’m hoping to be taking a honeymoon later this year or next year if Covid hasn’t sorted itself out. This status alongside Hilton Diamond earned from the Aspire will undoubtedly come in very, very handy.
