One thing is for sure, I don't think they will continue to offer those free nights.

Hyatt promos aren't really on quarterly - but whenever they run them.

I'm only about 7-8 nights away on both Hyatt and SPG on requal for top tier. I hope one of them has a killer promo. SPG 3 stays for 1 weekend night is ok, but is NOT something makes me wanna rack up a whole bunch. If they were gonna make it 3 instead of 2 like the last time, I wish they would have let us use them any day of the week.

I say Hyatt do something with extra points, esp with increase of points required at some properties now (cat 6)

Well since I've requalified, I have zero incentive to stay with Hyatt anyway unless its a promo that really catches my fancy. And after this current promo, I have quite a sour taste in my mouth with Hyatt right now especially when I have issues using my suite upgrades as well.. no I'm not saying I'm abandoning hyatt in anyway but I do have a sour taste with their promo and suite u/g benefits; enough of a sour taste not to give them any business after requalification unless they give me something good (promo wise) to stay with them. And shucks its only mid june right now.

the only thing that I can think of that will catch my fancy is a miles/points promo or a lot of points promo.. double stay is useless to me; FFN's are useless to me (see below); certain cc promos are useless to me; etc

I hope you are right; I found those absolutely useless this time; I can not find a place to burn one of my FFN's; ok burn is the wrong term; I can burn it at the HP IAD north no problem but of all my trips this spring and summer I came up 0 for and I look every day for my remaining trips and still get zero; No more FFN's for me what a joke it turned out to be this summer

Wow, that's too bad. I had zero trouble using all of mine. 2 nights at the GH Singapore, 2 nights at the GH HK. And 2 more nights booked at the Hyatt Puerto Rico. The Singapore nights had two rooms, and the HK nights had 3 rooms! Yes, I had a bit of an issue with availability at the GH HK, but after a couple of calls to the Diamond line I guess they figured out a way to get it done. Have you tried PM'ing our resident Hyatt rep about opening up availability for a Diamond?

I had mixed experience. Easy to use FFN at NYC, Zurich and Toronto. But can't use it at PH Paris.

I too had pretty good luck. 4 nights in Aruba, 5 nights in Curacao and 1 night at the HR O'Hare.

Already qualified for both back in March. Finalized Hilton as well last month.

Anyway I am having bit of a Hyatt fatigue after 70+ paid stays this year + all the redemption + at least another 20 free nights that I need to redeem before the end of August.

Does anyone think that now the fasttrack to diamond offer is over we will see something like double stay credit per night in the next one?

Unfortunately I have 20 stays complete this year. Is there any chance hyatt will let me upgrade to diamond early or give me a faster route? Alot of my travel looking forward hyatt is more money than comparable hotels so diamond would cost me some money.
