*****UPDATE: This offer is no longer available. However, those who signed up for it before it went offline successfully received Hyatt platinum status.*****
Hyatt is offering Microsoft employees Platinum status, for FREE. However, it looks like anyone can simply click HERE and registering for the promotion. You must have a Gold Passport account with Hyatt before registering for the promotion.
Hyatt Platinum Benefits:
- Achieve rewards faster with a 15% point bonus when choosing points
- Enjoy a preferred room including rooms on higher floors or larger rooms, based on availability upon arrival
- Receive the confirmed bed type at check-in
- Stay connected with complimentary in-room Internet access
- Expedite check-in at a dedicated area for elite members
- Ensure a room is always available with our 72-hour guarantee
- Extend your stay until 2:00 p.m. with a late check out request
- Book reservations through an exclusive Platinum line
Act fast because the promotion will probably be taken off the public domain once they find out that non-Microsoft employees have registered. I personally signed up for the promotion but my account is not yet showing Platinum status, maybe it will take a day or two for it to update.
