Any advice on how to reply so I get the proper credit?
Mlife properties do not count towards the Diamond Challenge, nor are they eligible to receive the bonus points.

They do however count towards requalification of status and stay/night credits

And since you get no Diamond benefits anyway it's not a really good introduction to Hyatt and its benefits, something the challenge is meant for.

For those who are currently undergoing the challenge, can you log into your account and tell me what it says in the Tier Expiration? I have NOT completed and it says 28 FEB 2016.

Is that normal?

i think if you don't complete the challenge, they'll manually downgrade your status.

Thanks for the clarification. For some reason, I thought it would say 30 JUN 2014 and change to the new date once I qualified.

Strange, mine says
Tier Expiration: 31 Jul 2014

I have not stayed at a Hyatt yet since being accepted into the challenge, not sure if that makes any difference.

For those who completed the trial, how long was it before you received your diamond credentials?

Any paid rate booked direct with Hyatt counts.

Yep, I book at the government rate quite often and have only had stay and night credit not post 1 time. A simple call to Hyatt Gold Passport customer service cleared it up immediately.
