Hyatt is winning at how to treat your customers during a pandemic. They will gain long-term loyal customers by doing that.

They have been an industry leader during the COVID-19 era in extending awards and benefits and in creating promotions to keep members active and feeling valued.

They also entered the pandemic in a leadership position. While all of the other chains devalued their points to smithereens, Hyatt retained a valuable point currency. That has made their Chase World Of Hyatt Credit Card be a must have hotel card. You can read more about their card’s benefits here.

But their latest promotion may be the most interesting yet.

But even more interesting is that stays with a 2020 checkout date earn 1 elite qualifying night for 2020 and 1 elite qualifying night for 2021. Stays with a checkout date between 1/1/21-2/28/21 earn 2 elite qualifying nights per night stayed for 2021 status!

Plus, Hyatt announced that you can earn top-tier Globalist status in 2021 with just 30 nights.

That means with 15 hotel nights that have a checkout date between 1/1/21-2/28/21 you can earn Globalist status.

Plus Chase World Of Hyatt Credit Card get 5 elite qualifying nights annually, so they would only need 25 nights. Plus you can earn 2 elite qualifying nights for every $5,000 spent.

If you get a new Chase World Of Hyatt Credit Card by 12/31/20 you will get 10 elite qualifying nights in 2020 and 10 elite qualifying nights in 2021. You need to spend $6,000 to earn the 50,000 point signup bonus, so you’ll also earn 2 more elite qualifying nights from the spending, for a total of 12 elite qualifying nights for 2021. That means you just need 18 nights for Globalist status.

If you’re registered for Bonus Journeys and stay 9 nights with a checkout date between 1/1/21-2/28/21 you would have Globalist status via double elite qualifying nights. 2020 nights would also count as long as you don’t checkout until 2021. If you stayed 9 nights at category 1 Hyatt hotels for 5,000 points per night you would earn Globalist through 2/28/23. Or of course you can use paid hotel rates or earn more elite qualifying nights through spending.

Plus, Hyatt is also currently offering 15% points rebate on award stays through 2/28/21! If you have a Hyatt or World of Hyatt credit card then you’ll get a 25% points rebate. That means if you spent 45,000 points for 9 nights at a Hyatt you would get a rebate of 11,250 points for a net cost for Globalist status of 33,750 points.

Unfortunately, milestone rewards will not be changing, so you’ll still need to get 50 or 60 nights to get confirmed suite upgrades, a free systemwide night, and a personal concierge.

Upon hitting 30 nights you will also get a free night at category 1-4 hotels, a value of up to 15,000 points, which can lower your net cost for Globalist status to 18,750 points. If you keep going and hit 40 nights you’ll get a $100 Hyatt gift card or 5,000 bonus points. At 50 nights you’ll get 2 confirmed suite upgrades that are each valid on paid or award stays of up to 7 nights. At 60 nights you’ll get 2 more confirmed suite upgrades on paid or award stays, and a free night at category 1-7 hotels. For every additional 10 night credits you’ll get another confirmed suite upgrade or 10,000 Hyatt points.

You can also get a 500 point nightly bonus when staying at new Hyatt hotels.

If you get Globalist at the 30 night promotional level for 2021, it will be more like “Globalist Lite.” But you still get upgraded to available suites at checkin, free lounge access, free breakfast, waived resort fees on all stays, waived parking fees on award stays, 4pm late checkout, 30% bonus points, and Globalists can share their Globalist benefits on award stays with their friends and family. I even have American Executive Platinum status thanks to being Globalist!

Many Hyatt hotels will also buy Globalists free kosher breakfast where available. I’ve taken advantage of free kosher breakfast in Buenos Aires, Cleveland, Hawaii, Los Angeles, Melbourne, New York, Paris, Sydney, and more.

Not going to spend 9 nights in a hotel by 2/28 to earn globalist? You can always earn 2 elite qualifying nights for every $5,000 spent. The Hyatt card gives a free night at category 1-4 hotels every year, but if you spend $15,000 you get another free night at category 1-4 hotels. Existing cardholders can earn 2 of these bonus nights in 2021. Plus you can combine elite qualifying nights earned from spending with nights earned from stays.

Will you try to go for Hyatt Globalist status with all of these promotions?

Sorry for the ignorant question, when someone earns status in 2020 or 2021 , when does the status go into affect ? Immediately and expires in a year from the earning date? Or Does it work by calender year across the board ?

Nirc

Any globalists willing to book for me 2 nights In Jan 2021? Please Contact me via DDF.

Mootkim

If I have ever seen a confusing post…

Oscar I

Agree with you. I am a bit lost. Is there a 101 post to get into the topic before going over the many details here.

Unsure

“That means with 15 hotel nights that have a checkout date between 1/1/21-2/28/21 you can earn Globalist status.

Plus Chase World Of Hyatt Credit Card get 5 elite qualifying nights annually, so they would only need 25 nights. Plus you can earn 2 elite qualifying nights for every $5,000 spent.”

Does that mean that if you’re a WOH cardholder,. you would only need 10 hotel nights between 1/1-2/28 to earn Globalist status, and that for every $5,000 spent on the cards you can earn two more qualifying nights (i. e. $50,000 would get you the status without any actual nights, or combination thereof?

Menashe

If you are an existing WOH cardholder, you get 5 elite qualifying nights, and you still need 25 more. 13 hotel nights with checkout between 1/1/-2/28 will give you 26 elite-qualifying nights, or $65,000 in spend (or any combination of the two).

do award stays count?

I assume qualifying nights are only on paid stays and not award nights, correct?

Menashe

Hyatt counts award stays towards elite qualification.

...

Don’t you get 3 nights for 5k spend with the new card

Jake

If I got the WoH cc in July, will the 10 eq nights count towards 2022?

Aaron

So which promo combination or solo would be the easiest path to Globalist?

meir

If paid for a stay and don’t arrive, will it be considered for a qualified night ?

correct if I\'m in wrong, but..

Isn’t it much easier to get Globalist status thru Bonus Journey’s 9 nights rather than the with 15 hotel nights between 1/1/21-2/28/21?

HelpMe

Yes I went for it. Will they give it me, pending?

Outinstyle

@Dan, One stay of nine nights works for Globalist or does it have to be 9 separate stays?

AllenM

what sort of credit rating is required for the cc?

hi

whats the cheapest hyatt points reservation

Moshe

Indeed confusing. I wish there would be a beginner guide post how status usually works , when does it go into effect , when does it expire, does it go by calender year etc. etc.

I have never really understand all the hotels elite posts. Maybe would be a good idea to post a beginner post just like there is a beginner pots for credit cards.

Dreidel

@Dan, as always, thanks for this information and your keen ability to identify these great opportunities. However, I remain confused after re-reading the post. You state: “If you’re registered for Bonus Journeys and stay 9 nights with a checkout date between 1/1/21-2/28/21 you would have Globalist status via double elite qualifying nights. 2020 nights would also count as long as you don’t checkout until 2021. If you stayed 9 nights at category 1 Hyatt hotels for 5,000 points per night you would earn Globalist through 2/28/23. Or of course you can use paid hotel rates or earn more elite qualifying nights through spending.” Does this paragraph apply only to those who get a NEW Hyatt credit card? If I already have the card, do not have any spend on the card, have registered for the Bonus Journeys promo, how many nights do I need to stay between 1/1/21 and 2/28/21 to achieve Globalist status for 2021 and ’22?

Moshe

Dan, so whats the cheapest way to do paid stays?

DannyGuru

Yes, this is the question as well as how to do this without having to physically checkin and checkout.

yoko

Just to clarify, if I sign up for the WOH CC, my two easiest options are;
A) Spend $65000
B) Stay 9 nights & spend $50000
Is this correct?

Erik

If you have the old Hyatt card converting to the new one in January, do you know if you get the 5 or 10 night elite credit?

Roy

Thanks Dan! I was debating about the WoH cc for a long time and this post made me go for it. just got approved using your link (:

Scott

With card you get 4x points on top of usual 5x points. I don’t think that equals 20x points does it?
$100 x 4x = 400
$100 x 5 x = 500
so – 900 points (rather than 20x x 100 = 2,000 points).

Issac Jones

I’m assuming if I can’t cancel my old hyatt card and apply for a new one I won’t lose my free nights and status, how long will I have to wait till I can reapply for the new after I cancel?

Lori

If I already had 2 rooms booked in my name for the same week in January do I get 7 nights credit for each room or just for one of the rooms?

AC

Can I book a multi day stay, show up for check-in and then leave? Any reason I need to stay around and be present on the end or check out at the end of the stay?

Roy

Hey Dan, Would you say that between now and 2/28, for a WOH CC holder, it’s better to use cash rather than points for a stay? I see it as a 25% discount on points redemption vs. the 22% off price + 25 points/$ (nights for status should be counted the same). A numerical example: a $300 night stay (member discount) + $50 in taxes and resort fees, and getting 7.5k points vs. 20,000 points (no taxes or resort fees) and getting back 5,000 points from the promo. Am I missing anything?

...

I just got the new card but only seeing 5 eqns on my account

...

I’m not so sure about nights that were paid for using points will qualify for this promotion. The language on the website is contradictory
This is from the FAQs on this promotion on hyatt.com

5. What is considered an Eligible Stay?

For the purpose of this offer, an eligible stay is defined as any stay at a participating hotel where a member is paying an Eligible Rate or redeems a free night award for at least one night of their stay. 

Which would seem like points nights work although “free night award” sounds more like a certificate than points

And then later on

12.  Are there any restrictions on the form of payment in order to participate in this promotion?

Eligible methods of payment include cash, Points + Cash, check, or major credit cards or debit/bank cards. Eligible methods of payment exclude, without limitation, hotel “House Accounts,” charges settled by a company or organization, charges billed to a guest room/folio or unit at a Hyatt-branded residence, point redemptions, award redemptions, Hyatt-branded gift cards, Hyatt gift cheques or property-specific gift card/certificates.

Pretty clearly says award and points redemption is excluded from this promotion

What gives ?

Steve

If I book a hyatt room using the Chase Ultimate Reward portal and pay with UR points do you know if the stay will qualify for double elite qualifying nights? Thanks.
