48 and holding

I'm at 48 and holding until November. If I qualify too soon my GSU's for next year will also expire too soon. The free nights or points at 70,80 etc. are also not enticing as I need nights to qualify and award stays don't count, So I have moved all my stays now to Marriot - SPG so I can also be Plat lite. My stay patterns would put me in Hyatt's , but their new rules are so stupid that they result in me giving my business to other chains.
Hyatt can go on pandering to Millenials with all their ridiculous lifestyle blah blah. The Millenials I know don't have any brand loyality if they are paying.

4 nights YTD

My OH would have access to the 20 night corp glob lite thing, so if it's still around next March we might take a look at that.

If we can be bothered, that is.

I'm at 61 nights. Debating if I should
1) keep going to collect 10k for every additional 10 nights,
2) re-qualify For Diamond with Hilton (my least favorite program), or
3) stay with SPG/Marriott because they have a decent promo going on. I've already re-qualified for next year.

I recommend less nights in hotels!

I'm at 54 nights, with 4 booked. Will probably hit it in October, but may delay until December due to GSU timing

57 with 2 more next week. Will hit 60 in early October. Then going to push for 70 which will happen with Thanksgiving trip - will then wait to make choice for additional upgrade for as long as possible so that I have 1 to use for next Thanksgiving or New Year.

Hope to hit lifetime sometime next year - then I can end the game of when to qualify.

I'm at 3, count them, 3 whole nights so far this year. Last year I had 80. So it is fair to say that WoH caused me to change my spending pattern. Even with "Globalist" status the program is not worth it.

BTW, is WoH ever going to have a promo? Hilton, Marriott and *wood have already announced their fall promos.

Nothing says "Hyatt, you blew it" like turning an 80 night customer into a 3 night customer.
