Free Diamond Status For the World!
Last year I documented my chronicles of obtaining Hyatt Diamond status through their challenge. At the time the status was given up front and could be retained after completing 12 nights within 90 days. Then the challenge went away and eventually came back, but without the granting of the status up front. In other words, you had to earn it before getting the benefits.
Now, apparently Hyatt is making it easier than ever to get Diamond status. So easy in fact, that it is possible to get matched instantly. Just read this tweet. In fact, View from the Wing is confirming (and a hat tip to Gary) that Hyatt is instantly matching people via Twitter until 2017. Our good friend PDX Deals Guy successfully obtained a match just a few minutes ago.
Mixed Feelings & ACT Fast!
I can’t say that I’m happy as someone who has spent the entire year struggling to requalify, but that doesn’t mean I want to keep this from everyone. If you are interested in Hyatt Diamond status and are an elite of another program (and who isn’t with credit cards) and can prove at least one stay, then I suggest heading to Twitter to ask.
My guess is they will be bombarded with requests, so acting sooner rather than later is probably a good idea! I sort of wish you good luck, but then again I am sort of bitter. 😉
Update: PDX Deals Guy has told me that the agent also said the match could be requested by emailing Goldpassport@hyatt.com with all of the relevant information.
