I suspect that their system isn't setup to accomodate future challenge start - the few reports of a future start date was probably done manually with its problems of someone remembering start dates for accounts.

I got enrolled today and my account reflects my Diamond status but I dont see any suite upgrades in it yet. Wonder if there has been a change in policy.

I doubt anything has changed. Varied experiences/dates are well documented in this thread. I suspect you will see them by tomorrow, but if not, just call and ask.

As an aside, I finished my 12th night yesterday, and my account reflects Diamond status through Feb2016 as of today. The entire process was smooth.

Do they spell Trial incorrectly in each one?

"I would like to thank you for sending the Hilton summary and I would gladly enroll you for the Diamond Trail, but however please could you accept the below terms and conditions."

I sent the request at 3:21 today and rec'd the email back at 4:14... quick service.

Hi All, quick quesiton. We are going to a wedding where we'll need two rooms for 3 nights. Will I get 6 night credits toward the challenge, or just 3?

No credit (except the points) for more than one room with Hyatt.... So only 3nights.

I had the diamond trial a year ago and I wasn't able to complete it. Will hyatt allow a diamond trial again on my account or is it YMMV depending on the rep?

Since points and cash nights count for annual nights is it safe to assume that they would counts for the 12 nights for the challenge requirement?

What is the end date for this current challenge? (Last day to start it) I have a bunch of stays coming up in late Oct and Nov and I want to start it as late as possible.

They don't publish that, it's an offer that can be amended instantly. But I doubt you will have any problems applying for in the next few months.
