I believe out of all the people who hit Globalist through spend your Category is less than 10% of overall people. I can show dozens of DPís of people whoíve done MS to meet the $100k threshold to hit Globalist but very few who hit it your way. Allocating 100k or more in business spend to meet this threshold truly uncommon. Iím not trying to invalidate that you did make Globalist this way, just that itís quite uncommon compared to the majority of people hitting Globalist solely via spend.

You also know that you can hit Globalist by only spending 20k with Hyatt right? Not needing necessarily a set number of nights.
In my original statement I answered about why I absolutely don't mind using the WOH card for the $100kish spend as opposed to a chase for 1.5 points per $. Itís the value of the certificates and the other bells and whistles. I find that all told this is of equivalent value to the .5 point I am not receiving. I am quite sure that millionaires or high net worth individuals certainly arent spending their time msíing their way to globalist.

It probably is uncommon and I am glad for that.

Yes I am aware of the 20k spend. Keep in mind that I am generating 2.5mm points give or take annually. I only spend dollars when using points is at a horrible redemption rate. I generally keep Marriott, Hyatt, Amex MR, and Southwest points. I use dollars very little.

I appreciate the civil discourse

I appreciate it as well.

I feel like of the millionaires and/or high net worth individuals your situation would be in a 1% column as far as how that subset of people earns Globalist.

Also, youíre staying that even though you can spend the money at Hyatt you opt instead to book award stays (if I'm understanding correctly). Do you feel Hyatt treats you differently from other Globalists because of how you got the status and your stay type (Award vs. Cash)?

It does make much more financial sense to redeem points for stays, especially at Hyatt. Sometimes with Hilton Iím not so sure (actually at least half the time unless staying 5+ nights).
