    A little birdie just whispered in my ear that there might just be a giveaway or two during the chat tomorrow night. ;)

    I know there hasn't been an official announcement yet, but for what it's worth it just worked for me. I now have matched status with Mlife. I clicked "opt in", logged into Hyatt, then it took me Mlife, logged in and somehow it just magically worked :)

    I'm not sure. I'll have to pick up the physical card next time I get the chance, and even then, it may not say (I've never had anything other than basic Mlife card). I don't see it mentioned online.

    That'll probably be a question asked tonight during the live chat. If it's only good through Mlife's current cycle, then it would expire in a few months. If it's good thru this cycle + one year, then Sept 2014. I really don't know & I'm curious myself.

    Standard MLife t&c says any status earned is rest of current year and all next year so you have at least 1 year benefit. But this question is on the list to be asked tonight.

    Glad to see it worked out. Hoping the plat card doesn't have an expiry date on it and it is all kept electronic. would make future "hey i'm still hyatt diamond" matching easier than a run to vegas every year during a particular window.

    Looks like mLife site is overwhelmed by the response to this match offer. :)

    mlife gets overwhelmed if more than 17 people are viewing the site at once.

    I couldn't locate the text of the live chat - so this may have already been addressed - but I just got an email from M life promoting their reciprocal relationship with Royal Caribbean. In the fine print at the bottom of the email, it says "Guest must have earned M life tier through spend with MGM Resorts International".

    Can a representative confirm if Hyatt matched M life members qualify for RC benefits? It's not just perks, but cash back offers/deals on the cruises themselves that could backfire if a recently matched Hyatt member thought otherwise. Thanks!

    Here's the link to replay the chat:

    They didn't specifically address Royal Caribbean but the question was asked. So, it may be one they post answers to in the next couple weeks.

    However they did state that Hyatt Diamond match to Mlife platinum was in no way different from the Platinum earned. Which contradicted other information about RCCLs benefits with Mlife platinum.
