with my last stay I also achieved the "regular Glob" status of this year and reveived 2 TSU plus 1 Cat 1-7.

so for next year I have 2 Cat1-7 plus 8 TSU. quite nice
I hope that most of the $200k you spent for LTG was somebody else's money!

I'd say roughly 35-40% is OPM....60-65% I paid out of own pocket...

Has anyone gotten anything over 100 nights? Trying to determine if there's any reason to go for 110 nights for an additional milestone bonus.

For an existing top tier, is there any benefit in aiming for 56 to 60 nights this year?

Apart from the promo bonus points... no.

The leap from 55 to 70 is substantial for relatively little return, which is why I stopped at 55 this year...


Even though next year's change isn't great, I can certainly see the reasoning behind it.

What is the expiration of TSUs earned at the 50 and 60 night threshold if they are earned in December 2019? Will it be February 2021 or February 2022?

I forgot to choose the Milstone night awards from the email to me in July and August. now the link gives me error message. So the awards expired already?

So bad, why only 90 days. need to talk to my Concierge then. There are so many emails from World of Hyatt. I often missed the promotion registration.

My concierge helped to award 10000 for the expired 70nights reward. ... Don't know why Hyatt won't give us reward after 100 nights.

I've never had problems with having more than the stated room capacity in the US, but I've heard that you need to be very careful of that in Europe & Asia.
Sorry I couldn't find it in the thread but did you attach the lounge cert online or call it in? I want to attach a lounge certificate to two existing reservations that are consecutive nights that I made due to using two free CC nights. I know that it is only supposed to be one per reservation but heard that hotels have generally been ok to using just one when you have multiple connected reservations.

fyi, the t&c actually state that you cannot apply a club access award to the free night awards. There are plenty of reports of people successfully adding so I would definitely still try and employ HUACA (or twitter/facebook)

Really? I thought it was allowed. I guess I mis-read the T&Cs. Thanks for the headsup. I am essentially booking the nights for my parents, I don't think they would take maximum advantage of the lounge anyways, so I don't even know if it is worth trying that hard, but I guess if I am not going to use it, I might as well try.
