    So, um, Mlife kinda looks like Milf when looked at quickly.

    Wow Kalboz you must be a pretty good spender with Hyatt! I didn't get an invite.:(

    I did not get one either ... not even to a milf! ;) John at Loyalty Lobby reported that he got an invitation.

    I thought that, too. While I am not a fan of the name at all, it's a decent program as far as casinos go.

    I received an invitation and will be there with Amol (@PointstoPointB). If anyone else is going, would love to meet up. I'm not sure how they targeted people. I don't think I spend that much at Hyatt, but maybe the $30K+ in spend I've put on their card this year has helped. They could also be looking at people who have stayed at the Hyatt Place in the past since this partnership now gives those members an alternative.

    I don't know of any bloggers (except me) who got an invitation, and I really don't have any evidence to suggest that my blog is what earned me one. I've had lots of conversations with HyattPR lately and she never mentioned the event despite the opportunity.

    Maybe they picked people with Higher Klout scores who they think will promote their trip well on various forms of social media?

    I'm already M-Life Gold and Hyatt Platinum and didn't get jack. I think it's definitely hand-picked "media" people that are being invited.

    Not to sound standoffish, but I am far from the media type. I don't have a blog, I don't write much on FT or MP. I actively participate in Facebook and instagram, which gets me my higher klout score.

    Some bloggers -- and a whole lot of members who were not bloggers -- received 50k United miles last year, unannounced and out of the blue. (I did not.)

    Some bloggers -- and a whole lot of members who were not bloggers -- received a free night for staying at a certain number of different Hyatt properties. (I did not.)

    Hyatt seems to be doing a bunch of 'surprise and delight' things with a subset of their Diamond members. I don't know the criteria they're using for any individual offering. I did get included in this one. Not positive the reason, but there are a few different potential selects that would've gotten me there. There are a few other Diamond members on Milepoint that I know received this, definitely not 'media' types. ;)

    Gary has a good point. The invitation was sent to my personal email address. None of my social media accounts or my blog email are linked to my Hyatt Gold Passport account. I'm sure they could figure out who I am and link my personal and public personae behind the scenes. That seems like an awful lot of effort. Usually when companies want publicity, they ask for it up front.

    What's your klout score? Or at least what was it when you were invited?

    I'm 57 now... and I'm on every Hyatt-related twitter and facebook contest, etc. So it's definitely hand-picked. :)

    Not a blogger, but I agree with Gary here.

    Did not get the United miles, I think it was really random. Did not get a free night even if I´ve met the requirement of 50 different Hyatts and then some.

    But I got an invitation to this party, but can´t go. :(

    Yup. I'm a self-avowed Hyatt HomerTM. I did not get the United miles last year. I did, however, get the 50 different Hyatts award and got invited to Vegas.

    I'm a blogger, but I think as Gary and Tommy have said, this is another example of a Hyatt "surprise and delight" for random Diamond members. They may not be specifically random, but they seem to be spreading the love around well.

    As opposed to my SPG "surprise and disappointment" promotion they've been running with the Ambassador program the last 6 months. ;)
