The Frequent Traveler University is in Washington, DC this weekend. What does that have to do with Hyatt Platinum status? All those who register will receive complimentary Hyatt Plat status valid through February of 2016. That status would make a great gift for many a traveler.

How do you get the Hyatt Platinum status, and what does it get you (or your recipient)? I’ve written about the benefits of Hyatt Platinum status before, which you can find here.

Even if you were able to find super cheap rates of around $60 per night at a Hyatt property, you’d have to spend an average $300 at the low end and have 5 separate stays to get Platinum status.

The cost for the entire FTU event is $149. You can sign up using discount code MILEPOINT to save $10 off, enter the person’s name and Hyatt GP#, and that’s all there is to it.

Here’s a link to sign up .

The status will be posted within 4-6 weeks.

The event promises to be a great opportunity to learn more tips and tricks about miles and points from a plethora of industry experts but even if you aren’t able to go, the status is still yours just for signing up!

    hyatt credit card give status with a free night cert per year. 139 is far too much!

    • Melinda

      It does Alan, but it sure makes sense for folks giving the status as a gift or those that don’t want/need another credit card!

    The discount code was not working when checking out.

    • Melinda

      Marsha, did you select a quantity of (1) ticket? It defaults to zero, but then it won’t actually process check out properly.
