TPOL burned the rest of his DSUs today or so I thought. Hours after I made my March bookings, I hadn’t received confirmation for the suites. I called Hyatt Gold Passport and was given two critical pieces of information:
- 2015 upgrades can’t be booked for stays past February 2017. Even though you can book for stays in March, suite upgrades will not be issued for those dates.
- 2015 upgrades booked by tomorrow can be changed after tomorrow.
Number two is huge. Although I changed all my bookings from March to February 2017, I no longer have to be worried that I picked the perfect dates for what will be an epic trip to Nepal, Tanzania, Zanzibar, and the Netherlands.
With the new coding in the computer, I no longer think that it will be possible to use 2015 upgrades for stays past February 28, 2017 as I originally speculated. Still, for those of us who just received Diamond status in 2015 and in lieu of the new DSU policy for 2016, this should be welcomed news.
