One of my readers sent me an email about an interesting item they saw posted on eBay. It’s for Hyatt Diamond Status for 60 Days, and they are asking $88 for it.
According to the listing, once you buy this you would have to email your Hyatt Gold Passport number and account number to the seller who will somehow get you trial Diamond status for 60 days.
At first I thought the seller would just send in a challenge, but when looking at their feedback they have also sold Starwood Preferred Guest Plus status before so this could be someone working for a company in which Hyatt offers challenges to, yet this person is trying to abuse the system.
Personally, I would never buy something like this on eBay since it’s against the program rules but also there is no guarantee that the status would last for all 2 months if Hyatt found out and shut down the account.
However, it appears that 7 of these have been sold so far and 10 are still available. Here’s the link to the eBay item.
