Hyatt Diamond Status In Only 12 Nights

With all of the talk of using Hyatt points for a suite award and upgrading a paid stay, I forgot to mention how you can earn Hyatt Diamond status with only 12 nights. I’m currently in the middle of maxing out the Q1 promotion by using the faster points strategy and have double dipped with a Hyatt Diamond status challenge where I will earn Diamond status after only 12 stays. You can request the status challenge by following a few simple steps below.

How To Request Hyatt Diamond Status Challenge

The Hyatt Diamond status challenge requires elite member status at another hotel. The qualifying list of competitors they will match is below.

  • Hilton Diamond VIP
  • Marriott Platinum
  • Starwood Platinum Preferred Guest
  • Priority Club Platinum

To request the challenge, simply send Hyatt an electronic statement from one of the programs above showing your elite status and activity. You can send your electronic copy and status challenge request to gpcs at hyatt dot com.

    I think there is a cutoff point (July 2012?) where one will keep Diamond status for the remainder of 2012, 2013, and then Feb 2014.

    I did the challenge in Aug 2011, and will be Diamond until next Feb 2013, so people should time it based on their Hyatt needs for the next 1-2 years.

    Is a Hyatt Challange once in a lifetime (like many airlines), or can it be attempted multiple times (like Marriott)?

    Does anyone know for sure what the cutoff is to maximize how long one would retain diamond?
