It looks like this method is currently working again (hat tip to DoC). I don’t know how long this option will be around, so I suggest you do this without delay. It will only take a few minutes of your time. Keep in mind that unfortunately, new Club upgrades will have an expiration date of February 2020 (like current ones in your account). Still, even if you have no use for them, Explorist status is nice to have because it should give you an upgrade to the best available room.
Here are the steps:
- If you don’t currently have MLife Gold status, you will have to get it first via match from Hyatt Explorist. Scroll down this page and click on Opt In.
Once you get matched to MLife Gold, open a separate tab and log in to your MLife account
Click this link to match MLife to Hyatt online
You will probably get this error:
Log out of your Hyatt account and log back in. If everything goes according to the plan, your Explorist status should now have an expiration date of February 2020, and you should be able to see 4 new Club upgrades:
I recommend you do it without delay because these opportunities often die pretty quickly. Plus, it’s hard to say whether it will even be possible to match in March. Hyatt may kill this loophole for good. Besides, starting in March, Hyatt Explorist status obtained via match will no longer give you club upgrades.
