No, but I guess I could order one. Regardless, I don't think it will help me at this point. Hyatt Gold Passport emailed me back saying that I needed to show stay activity and not just the Gold status....

Any ideas how to dodge this bullet?

I was successfully granted a challenge from the recent HHonors Gold. My HHonors acct was never used.

I noticed the match came from caemail@hyatt, although I had the schmooze with gold passport@hyatt (they asked to confirm address, when I did they asked for activity, I sent a pic of my card again and that was it)

What I don't understand is why my upcoming reservation was changed, but only says 'Gold Membership'. (I emailed the hotel stating I'm a Diamond, then got an auto email saying my reservation was changed. The only difference was that it now stated my GP acct #). Online my acct does say Diamond.

So cancel and rebook it.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Does anyone think he was just very lucky, or do you guys think they have loosened up again?

Just a HH GOLD with no activity or the added 1000 Amex created activity  gonna fly if tried again ?

Only get one shot at the Apple .

Suite or standard room?

I applied for the Hyatt Visa Card while I was platinum, just status matched to Diamond and now have an upcoming reservation using the free nights from the CC. I was told by Gold Passport that they would be standard rooms and not suites because I wasn't Diamond when I applied for the card. However, the award nights appear on my reservation as: "TYPE OF RATE: HC FREE NT AWRD*
SUITE DESK ONLY HYATT CARD SUITE FREE NIGHT AWARD."

Is that what typically shows up, or does this mean that I'm confirmed in a suite? As it is, I have an accompanying paid night for which I'm using a suite upgrade.

I actually got it on my second shot.... Anyway you can always open more hyatt accts. A bit OT but can other people stays credit towards my status? I know Hilton allows it.

To be safe, just have them add you to the reservation either before they check in, or while they are there -- have them add your name and Hyatt number.  My Dad doesn't care about points -- whenever he travels, I add my name and loyalty number to his reservation (SPG, Intercontinental, Hyatt)

Not sure whether its a fluke or not, but GH Kauai told me that these two nights are already confirmed in a suite.

YMMV. I've done it with 0 and 40,000. I've read 1000 will do it.

That would be 109 years of Hyatt nights -- would definitely be one for the record books!

I got accepted by just sending them the pic of my card again. There's no specific formula.

at the time I was doing a few reservations by phone, so I asked them and they claim they are completely powerless.

Don't understand. Powerless to do what?  Looked through your last posts and can't follow.
Powerless to grant challenge ?
