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?


Originally posted on 12/10:

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.

Back in May, Hyatt introduced reciprocal benefits with American Airlines.

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!

You can view the benefits of Executive Platinum status here.

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?

Don’t get too excited about free award redeposits. You might just get Barto on your account.

Curry

Who is Barto?

Don

Hey @Dan thanks for the info share. I am a globalist as well. I just called in and was told it was a targeted offer sent to people specified by AA. Do you know if your concierge was able to make this happen for you? Or did they just apply the promotion to your account because you where considered targeted.

Global Guy

Hi Dan! I’ve been a UA 1K for approx 20 years and will have 2.5mil lifetime this year.
I spent exactly what’s required to qualify 1K ($15k this year. $18k next)

Any way to get Global Services out of United without big spending?

Thanks so much!

D

If I earn globalist or other hyatt status how long does it last? Is there any way to get lifetime status?

ChiliPalmer

You mentioned using the SWUs.

Are you sure that AA is providing them as part of this promotion?

Y

Best part of this post is the use of the word murder in the first line.
That alone should make the decision makers in these ompanies rethink killing off all these benefits.

Sarah

I also received the offer from my concierge and although, like you, I don’t use the one world alliance very much, maybe I will try a flight or two as I am mostly in Europe and Tel Aviv, plus the redeposit an possibility of upgrades with no charge was nice. But also I have been lifetime gold for many years when a ,Illinois Miles was something, so maybe I was targeted because of that.

Joe

Globalist here.
I called my concierge and she said there is no such program and there is no list for anything to do with AA EP status.
She suggested I call AA and ask.
I tried to inform her of the information in this (and similar) articles but she was adamant that nothing like that existed.
Oh well.

Nate

I called my hyatt concierge and she knew what i was talking about .said let me check the list and came back 30 seconds later and confirmed i was on the list and said let me sign you up an…2 min later confirmed and said it will take up 2 weeks and was very easy….will confirm when get updated to ep!!

Thank you dan

Cook

Does spend earned on any Hyatt card qualify towards lifetime status? It needs to be a particular version? And does spend accumulate across different Hyatt cards (biz and personal) if associated with the same account? Do sign up points also go towards lifetime?

Jack

I am a globalist and called my concierge after seeing your post. I was told that I was on the list and my status just updated today. Thanks!

ken

SWU post one day after your Exec Plat status is updated. Dan, check again tomorrow.

Chris

I would be very interested in some tips/strategy to maximize value on the SWU. My traveling party is 1 exec platinum and 2 family members. Have plenty of American and avios.
