I received diamond status from matching my Hyatt status back in Dec. 2015 that expired March 2017. I haven't had an opportunity to record a single stay up until this coming summer. I called CS and I just asked nicely if they would be willing to provide me status for my upcoming trip as a courtesy and they upgraded my status to diamond from silver exp. march 2019. I did not need nor was I asked if I hold any status with any other programs.

Anyone else have this experience?

800-446-6677 - pressed 5. The CS rep just did a search of past promotions available to Diamond members which usually had to have some threshold met but gave it to me as a courtesy. Seemed a little too easy, hence my post. Not sure if I just got lucky or if this is common practice.

I finally got it in writing from a supervisor that it will count, so hopefully will be ok.

Good to know. Award stays count towards lifetime status
