Last week I launched the best giveaway we have had in quite a while as it was for roughly a year of top tier Hyatt Globalist elite status! Normally earning this new status would require 60 eligible nights in a calendar year at Hyatt properties, but this lucky winner will get it for free until February 28, 2018!
Not to rub it in for those who didn’t win this time around, but the Hyatt Globalist status will confer with it:
- No resort fees on any eligible paid or award stay
- Upgrade to best available room at check-in up to standard suites, space available
- 4pm late check-out guaranteed except at resorts or casinos
- Complimentary parking on free night awards – not points + cash stays
- Unlimited club lounge access on paid or award stays for the room the member is booked in
- If the property is a full service property with no lounge then breakfast is complimentary for up to two adults and two children in the room of the Globalist Guest.
- Room Guaranteed if booked at least 48 hours in advance
- Priority access to available rooms if checking in early
- 30% bonus on base points earned
Because this status can be insanely valuable, but only if it is put to good use, I enlisted the help of a fellow family traveling friend to select the winner from the over 300 eligible entries. I didn’t want this to be a purely random selection, nor did I want to make the choice myself. Honestly, there were so, so, so many people I wanted to give it to, that I would have lost tons of sleep trying to decide, and even then it probably would have been really tough.
For those curious, the person who made the ultimate selection narrowed the entries down to some “semi finalists” who both demonstrated a “need” of some sort for Hyatt Globalist benefits and the ability or rough plan to put the benefits to use. A random winner was then selected from the smaller pool of “semi finalists”. Again, I’m so grateful someone else did this because truly you guys are all amazing and I wish I had 300+ Globalist statuses to giveaway!
Winner of Hyatt Globalist Status:
However, I only have one Hyatt Globalist status to share and it is going to Jen who said:
What a generous offer. I do not currently have any Hyatt status, but we do multiple trips a year as a family of 5. We love to travel and we are sharing that love with our young children. The biggest perk I would love to have as a Globalist (as you have mentioned) is the lounge access. We have used Hyatt lounges on award stays before and we were able to stretch that perk to include breakfast for the family as well as dinner through the hot evening food. It saves a ton on food. We also would love to have the complimentary upgrades to suites so our family could stretch out. We have trips planned this year to Hawaii, Georgia, North Carolina, and more without any lodging plans setup. Hyatt is our go-to hotel chain for value when transferring Chase Ultimate Reward points. We also love to do weekend getaways to the nearby Hyatts in Orange County, Ca (Huntington Beach and Newport Beach) so the kids can experience the pools and other amenities. The free parking and lounge access would be a lifesaver on out of pocket costs. We are driving up to stay at the Hyatt Huntington Beach in early May in fact.
We love your blog and look forward to reading about whoever it is that wins the Globalist status.
Keep up the great work!
Jen, I am so excited for you and your family. All of your trips sound like great opportunities to put the Hyatt Globalist perks to use, but Hawaii stands out as being a slam dunk. Saving on the resort fees, breakfasts, parking, and more adds up insanely quickly on my favorite islands, so enjoy the heck out of those perks! Drop me an email to mommypoints at mommypoints.com with your full name and Hyatt number from the email address you used to enter and we will get you squared away with the folks at Hyatt.
To everyone else, sincere thanks in share a peek into your traveling lives via your entries. You are a bunch of generous and adventurous people who I am honored to have visit this site. Thanks also to Hyatt for allowing me to share Hyatt Globalist status with an outstanding Mommy Points reader!
