Hyatt Reduced Status Qualifications for 2021

I really have to give Hyatt kudos for the promotions they are running during this challenging time for travel.  Having already extended status through 2021, they have just announced a further enhancement to earning status in 2021 (through early 2023).  All elite status qualification requirements have been reduced by 50%!  

More info and the announcement

If you're collecting stays now through 12/31 in the Bonus Journeys promo, each night counts an additional for 2021.  And if you have the World of Hyatt card, you automatically get 5 nights at the start of the new year.  Only thirteen more stays needed for top status!

The Absence of Travel

It's already almost mid-November, and I should be planning to depart this next week for vacation.  The original plan was going to be another points-inspired trip to the Maldives followed by Christmas markets in Switzerland.  Unfortunately Covid has meant most European countries are still closed for tourists and therefore this years trip will not occur for the first time in many.  Even though I may not be in the air this Friday evening, I'm still determined to continue planning for next year!

Hyatt properties are showing nearly 12 month availability for bookings, so I've already made some points reservations for late next year - optimism!  I'll likely hold on any airline reservations until the picture is clearer since schedules are constantly in flux.  

Are you planning any travel yet for 2021?
