Working on the Hyatt Corporate challenge. Coming from LT Marriott Platinum. Trying to get in all 20 stays. What are some cheap North American properties for a mattress run? Do award stays count towards the challenge, thinking of transferring from Chase.

How do the Las Vegas properties work? Like the MGM Grand or Excalibur?

You book them through MGM and add your Hyatt number at check in. Iíd avoid them though due to the hefty resort fees ($35-$40 a night)

I have an email from Hyatt offering me a 30% bonus if I buy points. Since I have the Hyatt credit card, do I earn 4x if I buy the points on that deal? Thank you!

No, points are sold by points.com you only get the 4x when paying at a Hyatt property.

Suite Upgrade Awards (SUA) awarded in December 2022 will have Expiration date Feb 29, 2024. SUA awarded January 2023 will have expiration date Feb 28, 2025. Thus a SUA awarded just a few weeks or days later could have an expiration date a full year longer.

Last year, at 70, 80, 90 and 100 nights I received an email asking me to choose a Milestone Reward of 10,000 Bonus Points or 1 SUA with 90 days “to choose your award”. If choosing a SUA, it makes sense to wait until after January 1st to make the selection for the 70, 80, 90 and 100 night milestones (and emails) accomplished after October 2nd.

I passed 70 nights a few weeks ago, never received an email. Called My Hyatt Concierge a week later, she insisted that I tell her my choice and she posted the SUA immediately. In thinking about 80, 90 and 100 nights, which I plan to accomplish after October 1st, I hope I’ll receive the email so I can wait (90 days if necessary) until after January 1st to make my selection.

Was my lacking the 70 night email a fluke or a new procedure for Hyatt? Does Hyatt still send these emails? Thank you.

I always choose the 10k points lol (4) TSUís is always more than sufficient per year for us.

But Iíd check your spam folder as many people have reported that email being sent there. Also as long as itís within the 90 day range you can still have your MHC manually select TSU after January 1st.

How long does it take tier nights to post from HRC (My sense was those took longer than regular Hyatt nights)? Iím assuming, though correct me if Iím wrong, that my brand explorer 5th prop (the HRC) wonít post until the tier nights do. Is it immediate? Iíve got a stay coming up next week that Iíd like to use that explorer award for.

Brand Explorer posts the same day as the stay.

You stayed at The Welk in San Diego? I donít believe it belongs to a certain brand so you may not get a Brand Explorer AwardÖ

How long for MGM stays to post? I had one at Park MGM 7/7 that still hasn't posted. One Hyatt rep said 7-15 days and the other one told me 30. I assume I'll never get this night credit.

this is pretty much YMMV, mine always posted within 3 days. There are reports it has taken 2 weeks or so. Ensure your WoH# is on your folio b4 checkout, then there should be no issues. Els fill in the form on the website or contact MHC if you are a GLOB.

My personal "record" is 9 days for an mLife stay to post to Hyatt.

There are various threads about the MGM/Hyatt partnership, and a recent one specifically about posting issues: MGM stays not posting to Hyatt recently
