Yesterday I was delighted to get the following email from Hyatt, congratulating me on hitting a 50 unique hotel milestone. Apparently, I have stayed at 50 different Hyatt hotels over the last 10 years or so. Really, the last 8 years, because I only had one stay in 2004 and 2005 the rest were earned between 2007-2015. The email mapped out my stays which was really pretty cool! In addition, (and the best part) was that they gave me 10,000 bonus points and another 500 if I play a game!

I thought that this was pretty cool from Hyatt and a really nice way to say thank you for your loyalty. I probably could have done this a lot faster had I been trying. I often stay in the same hotels week after week just out of convenience. How about you? Are you close to a milestone 25, 50 or 75 different properties with Hyatt?
