Confirmed! Mlife To Hyatt Status Match Worked One More Time!
There are only two days left before this no longer becomes an option. If you were dragging your feet on it then you better get it done soon ;).
About a week ago I wrote an article stating that the Mlife to Hyatt status match should work one more time. I decided to give it a try today after knocking out my airline incidental credits. I have to get the New Year check list done right :). When I completed the match Hyatt said I had already completed the match which I thought meant it didn’t work. But when I went to my account I now had 6 lounge access certificates instead of 2 and my status showed good until February 29, 2020.
The only negative is the expiration date on the lounge certs shows February 29, 2020 instead of 2021. The ones earned last year were given 2 years before expiration. Although that could just be showing the date for the 2 I have left over and then will adjust when those are used.
How to Status Match
If you have status with MGM and Mlife from gambling, credit cards, or previous status matches then go to this site.
You will be prompted to log into you Hyatt account and that is it. Then go log into your Hyatt account and you should see the changes.
You may need to log out of your Hyatt account and then log back in again.
This is good news and I am glad I decided not to burn 20,000 Hyatt points chasing status. I ended up with what I needed one last time without it costing me anything. That is a win in my book. This is the last year that matching status will still give you lounge access and it must be done before March 1 so don’t wait.
Remember that if you are in need of some more valuable Hyatt points the World of Hyatt credit card’s welcome bonus will be dropping in value by $180 in the next few days. If you were considering the card be sure to grab it before then.
