If you're one of the many people chasing top-tier Hyatt status courtesy of the incredibly generous promotion that Hyatt is currently running, I have some good news for you. A significant number of the bonus elite night credits that Hyatt's Bonus Journeys promotion promises have already been posted to member accounts.

For the past few weeks, the World of Hyatt has been selling its points with a 25% discount but with the sale ending on 31 December, you now have less than two days left to take part. On its own, the 25% discount on offer is only "pretty good", but when you consider that points purchased in this sale can be used for award bookings that are also discounted by up to 25%, the thought of buying points looks more tempting than ever.
Continuing the recent theme of Hyatt being the only major hotelier that's releasing any worthwhile news, we now have a new announcement from Hyatt to say that it has added a further 10 SLH properties to the World of Hyatt program. One of the properties is a little different.
Hyatt is hoping to encourage more people to take some time out to be mindful and to honor Hyatt's third annual Global Day of Gratitude by offering 500 World of Hyatt points to everyone who completes a guided meditation today. In addition, Hyatt is also offering special discounted rates for healthcare workers from around the world.
With Hyatt's recent announcement that it has reduced its elite qualification criteria for 2021 by half and with the discovery that this now means that World of Hyatt members can earn Hyatt Globalist status by spending as few as 10 nights in Hyatt properties worldwide, a lot of people seem to be considering doing a mattress run to earn that valuable top-tier status. I may take it one step further. I may mattress run to earn the suite upgrade awards too.
At the time I was writing about yesterday's big Hyatt announcements, two things flashed through my mind. Firstly, I thought that the decision to reduce the elite qualifying criteria by 50% was incredibly generous. Secondly, it occurred to me that the combination of the reduced elite status targets and the extension of one of Hyatt's promotions may open up an incredible opportunity to earn Hyatt elite status with fewer nights than ever before.
Today is very clearly a day of Hyatt news on Traveling For Miles. The big news from earlier is that Hyatt is reducing its elite status targets by an incredible 50% for 2021, and now I'm pleased to report that Hyatt has said that it is extending three of its current promotions (including its fantastic Bonus Journeys promotion) through to the end of February 2021 - that an extension of almost two months.
The World of Hyatt has just announced that it is reducing its elite status qualifying criteria by 50% for the 2021 qualification year and, in one fell swoop, it has just made top-tier status considerably more accessible to a large number of World of Hyatt members.
Over the past six months, all the major hotel chains have taken steps to keep their more loyal customers happy and to make it easier for their elites to use the benefits afforded to them, but none has done more than Hyatt. Now, as chains like Hilton, IHG, Radisson, and Marriott start to roll back some of the positive moves they made earlier in the year, Hyatt is back with more good news for its fans.
