So many free night certificates!

It seems like the free nights are piling up (not that I am not complaining).

I have 5 that will all be extended until Dec 31, 2021:
  • Hyatt Chase Cat 1-4
  • Hyatt Chase $15k spend Cat 1-4
  • 30 Night Milestone Cat 1-4
  • Brand Explorer (10 brands) Cat 1-4
  • 60 Night Milestone Cat 1-7 (actually not in my account yet but will be before the end of 2020)
In addition I'll get the following 4 additional free night certs in 2021:
  • Hyatt Chase Cat 1-4
  • Hyatt Chase $15k spend Cat 1-4
  • 30 Night Milestone Cat 1-4
  • 60 Night Milestone Cat 1-7
There is a chance I'll hit Brand Explorer (15 brands) in 2021 but not holding my breath on that one...

I'm sure someone has me beat for accumulating free night certs.

That's the nice thing about FT. No matter how rich you feel, you're never top dog.

Kudos to you for remembering how you got them all. I can never figure out where all of mine came from.

I currently have 5 x 1-4 and 1 x 1-7.

I have 5 1-4, 1 1-7; then with Marriott, I have another 4 certificates all of the 35k point variety. So 10 certificates to use altogether.

With all of Hyatts promos/deals this year, I have not wanted to burn any of my certificates so they just keep piling up..

Stacking up for me too (4 Cat 1-4 so far). Hard to pass up 3x/4x on paid rates right now, or the 25% refund on points redemptions.

Between that and travel restrictions, it's getting difficult to redeem those FNAs. I am glad they are extended to end of 2021.

Got 4 Cat 1-4 and 2 Cat 1-7. Not to mention a ton of suite upgrades and useless Club Access awards.

If they ever let us trade them, mine are available for one point. For all of them.

Even more worthless than Marriott SNA. Especially with COVID.

haha this is how I feel on r/churning, almost embarrassed to post my redemptions where most of the world will brag about cashing out their year of earned rewards for a free domestic flight worth ~275.

I will have 2 cat 1 to 4 from annual free night awards in 11/2019 and 11/2020, p2 has a cat 1 to 4 that will extend to 12/31/21, p2 will also earn a free cat 1 to 4 for spending 4k by 12/31/20 on the hyatt cc so we are hopefully going to use those 4 free nights at hc waikiki which will trigger 2 brand explorer awards along with our 2 anniversary nights earned in 2021 we will have 4 more cat 1 to 4 to use in 2022.
