    It seems like they're severely behind the times...Hilton, SPG, Marriott, and the others have already started...anyone have any insight?

    They have repeatedly stated on Facebook that something will be offered in March. Sounds like a points promo, similar to the Great 10K.

    Ooops! [​IMG]
    I didn't realize they had put a month to it...I was just hearing..."it's coming in a few weeks..." thanks for the clarification!

    Hope it's something points based, b/c I need about 60K points to finalize my 7 nights in a suite and a connecting room over Thanksgiving at the GH Kauai! [​IMG]

    No worries. I really liked the Great 10K, but sounds like FFN was a pretty cool program.

    I wish they would just announce the promo already. I know it won't start right away but I just want to know so I can start planning.

    Right now Hyatt's promotion is in beta stage, awaiting further development while they get initial people to post comments and give likes to it. It will probably go live...I mean announced.....March 1st. [​IMG]

    As long as it's effective March 10 I am okay with that.

    Hey I'll take anything. In the meantime I've been making my stay decisions on the basis of price and hotel quality. [​IMG]

    Three stays with maybe seven nights total. Not all that much, but it would be nice if it counted for something.

    Right now, Hyatt is only getting one work stay a month from me, when it's more convenient and at a better price than Hilton. No leisure stays at all (and Hilton hasn't gotten any either). I've been spending Q1 leisure stays either at IHG to finish the crack the case promo, or with Priceline for under $50/night.

    Do we have GoldPassportConcierge on MilePoint to 'leak' more details about their upcoming promo? But on the note of promo wishlist, I'd like to add double elite qualification night/stays to the list :)

    That and 10K for 5 nights would be great! and if GP could announce the promo before feb 28th so that I could make a booking and use my sole remaining 2010 upgrade, and not apply it to a stay which I wouldn't be sure to use or a 2 nights stay.

    It counts towards requalification, if that's what you're going for. That's about my only justification. [​IMG]

    GPC has registered here on MilePoint but have not posted - perhaps after the site goes "public" (out of Beta) on 3/1 they'll post.

    Yes, exactly. Plus, it's the hotel I actually want to stay at, and I'll of course enjoy my Diamond benefits, which i wouldn't at SPG or HHonors properties.

    At some of these current low season rates, it makes sense to stay for requalification.....but a point bonus or FFN would definitely sweeten the pot! :)

    I am slow in my stays this year. Only at 1 stay. Waiting for them to announce their promo before I actually embark on my mileage and hotel runs.
