Update 12/23: American just updated my status to Executive Platinum through 1/31/21! Alas, at least immediately, there were no systemwide upgrades given, but hopefully they’ll come soon!
Were you able to get Executive Platinum from this offer?

After Marriott’s murder of the Starwood Preferred Guest program, Hyatt is the last remaining hotel brand that still offers excellent loyalty benefits and valuable points.
Top tier Globalist elite status offers confirmable suite upgrade certificates and Globalists get free breakfast, lounge access, waived resort fees, a free category 1-7 night, and even free parking on award stays. Globalists also get a dedicated concierge that you can call or email for account or reservation help. You can earn top-tier status from spending on the Chase World Of Hyatt Credit Card. See this post for more on earning status from spending.
I didn’t think much of the partnership at the time, but some Globalists got phone calls from their concierge about being targeted for AA Executive Platinum status.
I emailed my concierge asking if I could also get AA Executive Platinum status. She left me a voicemail asking that I call her back. I called her back and she said that they can’t do any status matches over email, but that I was now enrolled for Executive Platinum status!
She said my account would be updated within 2 weeks and the status would be valid through 1/31/21!
I’m not sure how much use I’ll get from the status as I already have United Global Services status and strongly prefer flying United to American, but if nothing else I’ll enjoy free award redeposits using AA miles as much as I do using United miles 😀
Maybe I’ll even use the systemwide upgrades to fly AA to London again 😀
Or not 😉
At any rate, thanks Hyatt!
Were you given Executive Platinum status from having Hyatt Gloablist status?
