American Airlines elite members can currently receive 90 days of Hyatt’s mid-tier status and a fast track for keeping that status next year or earning top tier status.
It turns out though that anyone can register for free Hyatt status and a fast track, and the broader offer is even better because instead of free 90 days of status, the free Explorist mid-tier status lasts through end of 2021 whether you stay enough with Hyatt to keep status or not.
What’s more, instead of having just 90 days to stay enough to keep status you’ve got until the end of the year so it’s far more generous:
- 10 nights by December 31, 2021 to keep Explorist status
- 20 nights by December 31, 2021 to earn Globalist status
And the status earned is valid through February 2023.
The only thing that’s preventing everyone from signing up is that there’s no website for this. Instead, you need to pick up the phone. strayersong who posted this offer to FlyerTalk.com, wrote on his blog that he contacted the sales department at a full service Hyatt where he’d recently stayed and they were happy to sign him up. Any Hyatt property sales department should do, it doesn’t cost them anything, they just might not know about the offer.
Some members may be getting mistakenly registered for corporate status matches and then rejected as ineligible because they don’t appear to work for a company with a corporate agreement with Hyatt. This is, apparently, and offer that hotel sales can use.
