We are a member of Hyatt rewards, and in order to maintain your "standing" you have to accumulate your nights in every CALENDAR year. Yup. And it's a lot more restrictive, too. You have to have 15 nights or 5 stays to get your "perks" and they don't count them toward your visit if you have ANY kind of discounted stay. Like -- once I booked on expedia, and that didn't count. And once, I booked a "special" rate (friend who was an employee) and THAT didn't count. And the perks aren't as good as Couples' perks. We were short by one stay in 12 months and stayed on Jan 2 the following year. Would they bump us up? Nope. It has to be between Jan 1 and Dec 31.
Guess what? I STILL stay at Hyatt. Because I like it. It's a great hotel.
This last trip to Couples, we got $700 in resort credits. Would I go back without them? Yup. Will I continue to visit Couples? Yup. Would I go if they cancelled the entire repeaters' program? Yup. (Although keep the dinner, please. I LOVE the repeaters' dinner.)
Peace out. ♥
