Expiration Date – July 31, 2015
Diamond Elite status with Hyatt usually requires 25 eligible stays or 50 nights in a calendar year. With this offer you can achieve Diamond status by completing 12 eligible nights in 60 days and keep it until February 2017!
While there isn’t an updated web page advertising the Elite Tier Offer (the current promotional page has a May 31st expiration, which is inaccurate), you can make a request to participate through Hyatt Gold Passport by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 800.304.9288 and request offer code ELT15.
You are not required to have elite status with another hotel chain to participate in the Elite Tier Offer. You will receive Diamond benefits once you complete 12 eligible nights in 60 days, but you will be automatically rewarded with Platinum status once you are enrolled in the offer.
Here are the details of the 2015 Diamond Elite Tier Offer:
Once enrolled you will receive Gold Passport Platinum status for the 60 days of your challenge
If you stay at least 6 eligible nights but less than 12 during your challenge, you will maintain Gold Passport Platinum status through February 28, 2017
You will receive 1,000 bonus points for each of the first 6 eligible nights you stay during your challenge
You will earn a 15% point bonus for all eligible stays during the 60-day trial membership period if you choose to earn points for your stay
To count toward the required nights you must pay an eligible rate, which is a published rate including discounted rates such as AAA and corporate rates
Award nights paid entirely with points will NOT count, but Points + Cash nights are eligible
Nights booked through internet wholesale sites (e.g. Expedia, Priceline, Hotels Tonight, etc.) will NOT count
Even though you can earn Hyatt points with Mlife hotels, these stays will NOT count as eligible for this challenge
If you successfully complete the Elite Tier Offer in 2015, you will be rewarded with Diamond status through February 28, 2017, which includes:
A 30% bonus on Gold Passport base points earned
An upgrade to the best room available upon arrival, excluding suites
Access to the Regency Club or Grand Club lounge, and in hotels without a club, enjoy daily complimentary breakfast for up to 4 registered guests per room
Complimentary premium Internet access where available
4 p.m. check-out when available
Bonus points or a food and beverage amenity at check-in
2 complimentary one-time-use United Club passes each year (NEW in 2015)
For the rest of 2015, Diamond benefits can now be extended to your friends and family when you book them a room using your Gold Passport points with Hyatt’s Guest of Honor program
It’s really worth making an aggressive attempt to successfully complete this offer if you have a 60-day period when you can complete 12 eligible nights with Hyatt. I completed a similar offer in 2014 and enjoy the Gold Passport Diamond status immensely! It’s a true Luxury for Loyalty experience!
Please note, you will not usually get a second chance in the near future to participate in this offer, so we suggest you choose your 60-day trial period carefully. Best of luck!
