Act Fast: Why I Seized the Hyatt Globalist in an Easy New Challenge

After losing Hyatt’s Globalist status in February and accepting the reality of its lower tier status with World of Hyatt (free full breakfast RIP, suite upgrade and late check out 4 p.m.), a great opportunity just appeared to receive Hyatt’s top status through 2025.

Bilt Rewards is offering a chance to win Hyatt Globalist status with 20 nights instead of the usual 60 nights if you sign up before April 1 and complete your stay from April 17 – July 16. That in itself would be remarkable, but it’s especially good the moment you can pile on Hyatt’s new rewards program, Bounty Journey, currently underway. With that promotion, every two nights after your first stay (after your first stay during the pomo period) will award 3,000 bonus points, for up to 30 nights.

Theoretically, if you completed 20 qualifying nights at Hyatt Category 1 with 3,500 points per night to earn Hyatt Globalist through February 2025 through the Bilt promotion, you would lose 70,000 World of points. Hyatt. However, if you earn 3,000 bonus points every two nights (after your first stay), you could end up getting 27,000 Hyatt reward points, which means your out-of-pocket cost to earn Globalist can be as low as 43,000 points.

TPG values ​​43,000 Hyatt points at $731, but TPG Hyatt’s Global Status at a much higher price of $4,950.

Exact pricing aside, World of Hyatt Globalist is one of those absolute favorite status. Last year, I used the suite upgrade of Hyatt Globalist status at Park Hyatt Paris Vendome and score a set when redeeming for just 40,000 World of Hyatt points per night when it sells for thousands of dollars per night.

I also used World of Hyatt points at the Hyatt Regency Paris Etoile. My Globalization got me into the wonderful Regency Club, with sweeping views of the City of Lights and the Eiffel Tower in the distance (oh, and the ‘free’ food).

Unfortunately, I didn’t qualify back to Globalist in 2023 at the usual 60-night threshold and was relegated to Explorist status. But with this new challenge, that won’t last long.
