Questions about 55 night Globalist Qualification

I just received a WOH email telling me how many more nights I need (13 ) to re qualify for 60 night Globalist.
  1. When does the 55 night Globalist qualification commence ?
  2. Is 55 night Globalist qualification another form of Globalist Lite and not eligible for GSU certs. ?
i have ceased Hyatt stays until November so my GSU certs stretch farther next year. 55 nights would then require a longer re engagement as I don't want to requaliy too early and make my certs useless.

55 requal begins next year AFTER you have already requalified at 60 nights. Once you have requalified at 60 nights you can requal for Globalist with 55 nights BUT you won't get any TSUs.

I thought that it was confirmed that 55 night Globs in 2018 would receive TSUs.

This article says yes - although not official rules of course.

You get dsu at 55 next year after hitting 60 this year. I asked my pl rep and she confirmed with management that you will get them at 55.

The rules state you get them at 60 nights, not that they are a globalist benefit.

I wouldn't be counting on the words if a rep.

+1.

Until I see quite a few reports in 2018 on FT that everybody is getting TSUs at 55 nights, I'm working on the basis that 60 nights are required. We've all heard lots of BS from phone agents that force us to HUACA. (not just Hyatt, all chains/airlines)

Besides, that free night anywhere at 60 nights is also attractive enough to do 60 whenever possible.

The terms and conditions also seem to indicate that they would be earned at 55 nights:

"1. Receiving Complimentary Suite Upgrade Awards. 1. Receiving Complimentary Suite Upgrade Awards. Upon achieving (or re-achieving) Globalist status by satisfying the Tier-Qualifying Night or Base Point accrual requirements detailed above, a Member will receive four (4) complimentary Room Upgrade Awards for suite accommodations (Complimentary Suite Upgrade Awards)."

The reference to "detailed above" is:

"(a) Requirements To Earn Globalist Status: Members who, in the course of one (1) Calendar Year, record a minimum of sixty (60) Tier-Qualifying Nights or earn one hundred thousand (100,000) Base Points will receive Globalist status after meeting the minimum requirement through February of the second Calendar Year following qualification. Please allow approximately seven (7) business days from the checkout date of the stay during which you qualify for a new elite status to be applied to your membership. After launch of the Program on March 1, 2017, a Member who qualifies for Globalist status by satisfying the minimum Tier-Qualifying Night or Base Point accrual standards set forth above may re-qualify for Globalist status for the following year by either recording a minimum of fifty-five (55) Tier-Qualifying Nights or by earning one hundred thousand (100,000) Base Points during the current Calendar Year.

Not the first threat that debates this. In the old days the Gold Passport Concierge would have stepped in within minutes to clarify the policy. How bizarre that members asked to spend 55 or 60 nights to achieve top level can't even be certain what it takes to receive the flagship benefit.

Just spoke to a rep who confirmed that Globalist status for 2018, and related amenities, is tied to the 60 night threshold. The 55 night re-qualification threshold is for subsequent years.

This is pretty much ridiculous and basically looks as if they were providing a "gift" of Globalist status for 2017 for those who'd achieved Diamond GP status based on 2016 stays without deeming it true Globalist status. Nevermind the verbiage on the website is contradictory.

Pretty bizarre and sad for a once great program. The lack of guidance , and clear understanding is certainly misguided. I just want to know the rules so I can make decisions ,and there seems to be no clear understanding of what 55 night qualification awards or doesn't award. Is the Hyatt rep on FlyerTalk defunct now?

My understanding is clear.

If you already qualified as Globalist in the previous year, then at 55 nights you re-qualify. You also get 4 TSU's.

If you did NOT qualify in the previous year, then it takes 60 nights to qualify and get the 4 TSU's.

For 2017, nobody could have qualified in the previous year, because Globalist did not exist in 2016. So everyone has to hit 60 nights to qualify in 2017.

As a separate event, if you stay 60 nights in a year, you get a Cat 1-7 Award.

Thank you. That's exactly how I understand it.

Although I'm hoping in 2018 to no longer have to deal with this as I think I'll hit the lifetime mark somewhere around my 44th night in 2018.

Yup exactly how I understand it. I trust the information my pl rep obtained for me more than some random front line phone rep giving information that doesn't even make any sense.

It looks to me like they liberalized the T&C. They used to very clear tie the TSUs to completing 60 nights.

Yup, it's a moving target. We have to shoot where we think it will be, not where we know it is.
