Thanks for clarifying this. Thereís been so much confusion regarding whether first night counts or not.

I am currently Globalist and have been told I'm eligible for the 20-night promotion, no corporate affiliation. I have a 21 night stay in Japan at the end of March, beginning of April (hoping Japan will open up!). There's so much confusion about the 1st night counting, and other T&C's, but I'm more concerned about when the nights must be finished. If I enroll in the promotion by the end of November and, as an example, have my 1st check-out on January 15th, will my Japan nights fulfill the 20 night requirement (assuming my trip ends before 4/15)?

There seems to be at least a couple of different challenges running right now. At least one of them has to be completed by 28 Feb 2023. You should carefully review the T&Cs of the specific challenge you intend to sign up for to determine the end date.

That's 8 months from now. Highly unlikely it's within the challenge dates.

Called this number today around 4.30pm CST..+1 800 544 9288

Hit 3 for the WOH account inquiry option.

Nice lady picked up the phone, I inquired about getting signed up for the Quick Qualify Challenge/Promotion.
She asked for my WOH number, name, email. Verified everything, and she said she needed to transfer me to a supervisor.
Next thing I know, another nice lady answered, explained to me the rules of the promotion.
10N to Discoverist, additional 10N more to Globallist.
She had to stress and repeat this, the challenge will only start counting after the date of check out of my 1st stay.
There is no where I can verify my challenge status but call and check back with them at any time.
If it matters, I'm only a lowly Explorist with only 21 nights so far, so finishing up the 20N to globalist will cut short my 19N in total.

Thanks everyone for the info here!

This is consistent with what I was told. But I also asked about the WoH credit card (which I just signed up for but havenít received yet). Interestingly, I was told that the automatic 5 elite qualifying nights you receive upon account opening count towards the 20. This almost too good to be true, especially since I could get an additional 4 nights just by spending 10k in the first month or two. Any reason to question this guidance?

Yes, because it's never been true in the past. Don't count on them counting.

Who to contact

Who and how (call? General number or globalist line) to register for "non corporate affiliated" challenge.
currently have globalist through 2/23 but will definitely fall short of 60 nights to requalify. Had asked MHC if eligible and told from what she saw i wasnt targeted. Lately she hasnt been that helpful w offerings (point transfers taking extra time as well as not being pulled for upcoming stays that could potentially be cancelled).
have an upcoming vacation which will earn 13 nights at 4 properties in a week which will make dent in 20 night requirement. Can easily easily least 7 nights with the 90 days to top off not even using double night credit at AI properties.
Who should i contact to get this offer and exactly how to wird this request? Is it called a globalist challenge or fast track or something else.
TIA

I also was wondering, Twitter basically told me "only some people are targeted so follow your email instructions" and Globalist phone agent told me she saw it initially but that when she tried to add it to my account it doesn't apply because I'm currently Globalist. Happy to call again but just trying to see exactly how to phrase it.

Does staying 20 nights under this challenge get you Globalist lite or full Globalist with a concierge?

Officially, Lite, but some who re-qualified this way last year kept their concierge.

Points nights definitely count, as does the first stay to activate the challenge. What doesnít count (despite what I was originally told by two different reps) is EQNs from the WoH card. As I suspected, that would be too good to be true, and a supervisor confirmed that.
