Click Here to get more details on this card and compare to other cards!

According to Dan: The nights post within a week of spending, regardless of statement close.
They expire 12-13 months from posting and can typically be extended by 1 more month by emailing Hyatt.

Best offer out there for now: (Thanks DoGo!)
Go to Hyatt.com make a reservation, click book, and before cc page you will see offer for card with the 2 free nights PLUS $50 statement credit. Looks something like this

Anniversary nights appear in account before annual fee posts.

Right, that's what i figured, but i just wanted to make sure. Thanks!
Also, I now have a trial diamond status and it's showing me 4 suite upgrades (!), (kinda surprising because i was always under the impression that with the trial you dont get any upgrades... ) Anyhow, if i stay at the hyatt for 4 nights and only pay for 1 (use free nights with the other three), then if i use my suite upgrade is there anyway to extend to ALL the nights, not just the one that i paid for?

It's YMMV, but if you contact the hotel before hand, there is a good chance they will be ok with that, if the room is available. But as AsherO said, it officially doesn't work

Manager is always a good place to start if he's available. I think you said you were going to GHK. Tell him about all the amazing things said about his property on DD/DDF, and how excited you are to experience it

I would call hotel,get hotel general mgrs name and e/m( sometimes mid level people are afraid to say yes , while g.m is the king)  --send e/m with ur request-- i think it would help if u had a special reason why wanted (visiting  sick relative, new job interview etc.)and not just to game the system -- if get yes-- it is in writing-- if get a no--still can call reservations later

First book the paid night and suite though reservations.  Then call the hotel to confirm you won't have to change rooms.  Shouldn't be a problem if they aren't sold out.

I just did the same thing with my award nights actually booked first. After I got Diamond trial status I booked my suite rooms and the CSR from Gold Passport I called said I couldn't use the upgrade on the award nights. I then called the special Diamond line and explained to the representative how annoying it would be to change rooms on my honeymoon and she promised to take care of it for me. A few hours later, I got a call back from Hyatt confirming my suite upgrade would be for the entire stay.

  Are you saying you got suite upgrade on an award only reservation,or combo paid and award res.? 

    If i used the Honeymoon schtick could I get upg at HP Paris Vendomme . Also if I do the 60 day match to Diamond from HH Gold can I add diamond staus to May reservation for breakfast at least, or do I have to be diamond on the dates I am there

Thanks so much for the advice everyone!
I called and was told that there were no suite upgrades available, but then i called again and got locked into a suite for the paid night. :) Hopefully i'll get lucky and will be able to extend the suite for all my award nights...

Is the paid night at the beginning or end of the stay?

My hunch is you'll be fine then, but YMMV.

Random Question: Is the free suite nights based on when you apply for the card? or when the card is approved? my hunch is that its when the card is approved because thats when they contact hyatt. I ask because someone applied for the card as a platinum member but matched to a diamond trial shortly after. By the time she was approved he was diamond but just wondering if that is enough to get free suite nights

Edit:
Just called and a rep confirmed my suspicions. I'm still not totally convinced, as reps can often be wrong,  ::) but she notated the account...

1) spg is better because you can do a cash & points booking (making points more valueable)
2) you can get hilton gold for free now. Dan posted how to do it on the main site, and then you can try matching to a hyatt diamond trial
3) no clue

It for sure goes by when they contact Hyatt (which is often before the card is totally approved as they must have a membership number before they approve). I believe I already once wrote exactly how hyatt card app process works.
