    Earlier this week I posted about some fishy inventory management at the Hyatt at Olive 8 which effectively blocked any award redemptions for 91 consecutive days this summer, via a creative plan to make Deluxe King rooms available only in "packages," and not at the Hyatt Daily Rate. And then Travis, taking a different approach, posted that he was able to book a room at the Olive 8 with some persistent "HUCU"-ing (that is, hanging up and calling again) and a casual mention of "I'm a loyal Diamond."
