American Airlines and Hyatt are back at it with another promotion through which certain American elite flyers can quickly earn top-tier Globalist status in the World of Hyatt program.
Let’s take a look at how you can take advantage of this offer!
To participate in this status match/challenge, you need to link your World of Hyatt and AAdvantage accounts. Simply provide your American Airlines AAdvantage account details and then it’ll be linked with your World of Hyatt account!
Earn World of Hyatt Status Instantly
AAdvantage Gold, Platinum, Platinum Pro, and Executive Platinum members can register to earn World of Hyatt Explorist status for 90 days following registration. You must register by November 30, 2023.
To keep Explorist status, you need to stay 10 nights within 90 days. Meanwhile, if you’re either an AAdvantage Platinum Pro or an AAdvantage Executive Platinum member, you can earn top-tier Globalist status if you stay 20 nights within that same period.
In either circumstance, upon completion of the required nights, you’ll maintain that status level through February 2025.
AAdvantage tiers below Platinum Pro are not eligible to earn top-tier Globalist status via this offer. Gold and Platinum AAdvantage members can only earn as high as Explorist status unless they complete the typical requirements as specified by World of Hyatt.
Hot Tip: If you earn World of Hyatt Globalist through this offer, you’re not eligible for a My Hyatt Concierge. This is only earned when you complete the typical requirements for earning Globalist.
If you’re an AAdvantage Gold or Platinum member with plans to stay at least 10 nights at Hyatt properties in the next few months, this promotion is a no-brainer, as you’ll earn mid-tier Explorist status through February 2025. However, we wouldn’t recommend going out of your way to complete the terms of this promotion.
Where it really gets interesting is if you’re a high-tier Platinum Pro or Executive Platinum AAdvantage member. In that case, it could make sense to devise a plan to rack up 20 stays within 90 days (award nights do count toward your tally), as World of Hyatt Globalist status offers considerable value and benefits.
Either way, remember to register before November 30 to give yourself a shot at earning this fast-track to World of Hyatt elite status!
