I’m one night away from from globalist on a Hyatt status challenge but won’t travel again before it expires. Is it it worth it to pay for a cheap night ($120 total)?

Yes- also check your corp rates you might be able to find a cheaper one than that- but you have to actually check in or you won’t get credit

Okay I amend this to say for ME it would be worth it- I get way more than 120 in benefits from globalist but you should look at your own situation to see if you would from the perks

I’ve been thrilled with globalist and have switched from titanium at Marriott

Not sure about your targeted challenge, but normally a points stay counts towards status, so find a Tier 1 (5-10K) for a night.

If you use the status for the next 1.5 years yes.

The answer is always yes to hit that next level.

How did you get the status challenge?

It’s company specific

Yes it's totally worth it

Yes if only $120

Yes. It’s worth it. Just for the free breakfast and frequent suite upgrades. For me, Two nights with a family for 4 and the breakfast breaks it even!!

Find the cheapest hotel possible anywhere and pay someone a little bit to check in for you. I’ll do it if you find a cheap one in Manhattan 😂

Have a somewhat confusing question hoping to get some insight. I had to cancel a Southwest flight last year due to covid. They issued a credit but informed me I had to book a flight that was before 9/22/21 or the credit would be lost. Here’s my question: if I book the flight so it is before the 22nd and use the credit to pay for it, if I decide to change flight dates to after 9/22 would that transfer over? Or would I have to forfeit the credit and pay for the flight. Hope this makes sense!
