World of Hyatt 40 Night Milestone What to Choose
Hyatt Globalist status is known as one of the most rewarding in the hotel industry. Globalists get suite upgrades, free breakfast, waived resort fees and tons of other perks. Additionally, as you stay more nights working your way up through the ranks of status, World of Hyatt throws you some love as well.
Introduced with the World of Hyatt program a few years ago, Milestone Rewards aim to give customers perks as they ascend the different tiers of nights in a year. For example you can earn free nights for staying at different brands plus you get a free category 1-4 cert when hitting 30 nights in a year and a category 1-7 cert when hitting 60.
The 40 Night Milestone Perk
One other cool perk they recently added was a choose your prize option at 40 nights. When World of Hyatt members reach 40 nights in a year, they get to choose one of the following:
- 5,000 bonus points
- $100 Hyatt gift card
- 10,000 points off of a FIND experience
I hit 40 nights back at the end of April and just realized that they gave me 90 days to choose.
Choosing Hyatt 40 Night Milestone Perk
I’ll start by saying I chose the $100 Hyatt gift card. I spend real money at Hyatt so that saves me $100. Some people value Hyatt points at 2 cents+ each but I don’t given my real world experiences. I also looked at some FIND experiences, but nothing compelled me to turn away from $100.
After clicking the link in my email and logging into my account I was presented with the three options and chose the gift card. What really surprised me was how quickly the gift card was delivered! Within 5 minutes I had it in my email. That would have been amazing if I needed it right away and is impressive given Hyatt’s tendency to struggle at times with website functionality.
My two biggest takeaways from the Hyatt Globalist 40 night prize experience are that you should click the link right away since it will expire after 90 days and that you can really get a great use out of your gift card since you should be able to use it right away.
