Well i just got denied....wow...it's one of those things that I wouldn't have cared about if I hadn't even been asked. Now after being denied I feel like they don't appreciate my business.

It's the way hyatt does business... i think the head of marketing lives on another planet. They invite people to this useless stuff and introduce it like a "gift" and finally they deny people. Crazy, it's like inviting your best clients to a party and when at the door you deny entrance for a crapy reason... you know another business doing this? Me no... only cheesy and crapy team can get this kind of silly idea.

Sometimes i really wonder how the guy in charge of Marketing is still in the house, so many crazy bad ideas, nothing creative, nothing clever... etc etc.

I understand you, it's insulting but not a surprise regarding the global level of their marketing team.

To be fair: They need a range of people from those who barely stay at Hyatt to those who do hundreds of nights.

My partner who only really travels for leisure with me if part of the QF Advisory Committee which is compensated with points in return for his input on questions and issues discussed on a microsite. He knows it irks me that he got invited and accepted and I didn't so always announces dramatically when he is participating!

Has anyone received their 'gift' from Hyatt Insiders yet? I called Hyatt yesterday regarding my 'Free Night" and explained about HI. The Hyatt rep had no idea what I was talking about, and had never heard of Hyatt Insiders or the Thank You Gift. With Insiders closed, not sure where to check??

I read somewhere on the Insiders sight that it would take 4-6 weeks to post to your account. When I first joined the Insiders several years ago I thought it was a great thing. I liked the idea of being part of a smallish group to provide Hyatt with our opinions and insights. Not sure how they filtered new candidates but over the past year, Hyatt stopped participating in it frequently and there were too many newbies coming in and simply complaining constantly, similar to FT. It wasn't meant to be a FT type of post but a place where Hyatt could ask forward thinking ideas and questions and get feedback from their Insiders group. I think years ago it was an asset to Hyatt but more recently it was the whiners club so they shut it down. I liked being a part of it and am disappointed that its now gone but I thought Hyatt was very generous to provide 10K points or a free night cert as a parting gift, that was classy. My parting comments were that if I want people complaining and nit picking all the time I can go to FT for that and for Hyatt to get real value from true insiders they need to be more selective and set clear objectives and guidelines for what they want from the group and a code of conduct.

The terms and conditions said this would be deposited on March 15th, give it a few more weeks.

I also confirmed this with a follow up email to the hyatt insiders moderators.

Thanks, that's all I needed. I have a tendency to immediately DELETE messages after reading
