Some folks report getting matched to Hyatt Diamond elite status, their highest tier!
Hyatt asks you to send proof of your elite status at another hotel chain and at least 1 stay in the previous year. Although there are no hard and fast rules about who will get a status match.
They seem to be backed up because of the huge demand for this promotion, so give them 2 to 3 business days to reply. Good luck!
