Have You Heard? Free Nights Count Towards Hyatt Status


Some people get their news from Fox, some get it from Bill Maher, and others get it from Facebook. If you’re a TPOL reader, chances are you get some of your news from BoardingArea. If that’s the case, then you have already learned the following: Starting January 1, 2018, all nights on free night awards will count toward tier status.
