I agree. If I hadn't read this thread, I would have missed the 60 day cut-off.

Do they really need to spell out every detail? The day you get enrolled in the challenge you get an e-mail that you need to stay 12 nights in the next 60 days. In fact the 60 days is mentioned twice, another time for the 6x1000 bonus points. Pretty hard to miss in my book.

Specifying an end date would be nice, but with Hyatt IT and the enrollment process being a manual one (with cut and paste for the e-mails) that's not likely to happen.

No it's really not clear, particularly since Hyatt tells you your status is good through the end of the second month, which is almost always more than sixty days. The evidence of the confusion this generates is rather manifest, just look at all the questions and comments the issue generates in this thread.

I registered today (10/28) for the Diamond trial. My "tier expiration date" on Hyatt.com is showing as 12/31/14, so it's significantly longer than 60 days. Also, I received no Diamond Suite Upgrades in my account yet.

You will always be Diamond until the end of the month, so that's generous. But it has nothing to do with qualifying for the challenge. Even if you don't have a single stay you will be Diamond until the expiry date they grant you when you start the offer.
But to maintain that status (and that's what the challenge is for) you need to have 12 nights in 60 days, something that is very clearly spelled out in the "you have been signed up for the challenge" e-mail you get.

A few years they used wording like this "To maintain Diamond membership through February 201x, member must complete 12 eligible nights at any Hyatt Hotel & Resort worldwide, Hyatt Place or Hyatt Summerfield Suites within 60 days of enrollment. You will also receive 1,000 bonus points on your first six (6) eligible nights within 60 days. Maximum 6,000 bonus points may be earned. Maximum one trial tier per member."

It takes up to 48hrs for the upgrade awards to show up in your account.

Does anyone know when the 6,000 bonus points are expected to post when doing the challenge? I'm 9 credited nights into the challenge after ~30 days and no bonus points posted.

Your challenge complete by date would be Dec 27th 2014.

See the Wiki:

As I understand the status match is only until 10/31. However my first stay with Marriott this year is 11/01...

Would that be okay in terms of meeting the challenge reqs?

Getting the last of the 12 night requirement...

Initiated the Diamond Trial on 10/26 and thought it would be easy to meet the 12 night stay requirement based on scheduled upcoming personal & business travel. I then learned that booking 2 rooms concurrently for 6 nights does not qualify.

So two questions:

1. Any issue if I book a room for a friend through my Gold Passport number and pay for the room on my Chase Hyatt Visa but I personally don't stay at the hotel? Would that still qualify as "eligible nights"?

2. Any points of caution regarding booking cheap rooms at the local Hyatt Place and not occupying them to get 3 or 4 additional "eligible nights"?

Thanks much!

mo2vate Booking a room for a friend that you are not staying in but are paying for would earn you points but would not earn you qualifying nights. You can earn qualifying nights by checking in at any Hyatt property as long as you are the one checking in and staying in the room and you are the one paying for the room. Nights booked through third party sites are not eligible for points or qualiying nights.

Hello travelismylife!

At this time, we do not have a new offer following the expiration of the current Platinum and Diamond Trials on 10/31/14.

Thanks!

Well, it was good while it lasted!

Between this, the end of MER, and increasing properties opting out of P+C,it looks like we are looking at a slim, trim HGP program for 2015.
