CHICAGO — World of Hyatt has made changes to its elite-status criteria for 2021 as part of its commitment to members.
The program has reduced the Base-Point and Tier-Qualifying-Night requirements for members to earn or maintain elite status by 50 per cent, compared to the program’s standard requirements. Additionally, World of Hyatt is extending several ‘rewarding offers’ through the beginning of 2021, giving members more time to accelerate point earnings and boost tier status.
“In talking with our members and understanding some are not ready or able to travel as often as they hoped, we want to make sure they feel cared for and recognized for their loyalty. That is why we are offering members even more flexibility when it comes to achieving elite status next year, in addition to giving them more time to take advantage of compelling offers,” says Amy Weinberg, senior vice-president, Loyalty, Brand Marketing and Consumer Insights, Hyatt. “2020 was unprecedented in many ways and, as we look toward 2021, our priority remains staying close to our World of Hyatt members to understand their needs and instill confidence as they plan for future travels.”
For the 2021 calendar year, World of Hyatt members can earn top-tier Globalist status by staying 30 Tier-Qualifying Nights or earning 50,000 Base Points. Staying 15 Tier-Qualifying Nights or earning 25,000 Base Points will qualify them for Explorist status and five Tier-Qualifying Nights or 12,500 Base Points will qualify members for Discoverist status.
These updates are an extension of the previously announced updates, providing World of Hyatt members more time to use their earned awards and points and enjoy elite status and benefits.
