It’s March. That means it’s time for the next step on the Status Match Merry-Go-Round, rematch Mlife to Hyatt.

Login to your Hyatt account. Did you drop off from Explorist down to Discoverist or General Member?

I did. 

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

But no worries…. if you are on the Status Match Merry-Go-Round and have your MLife Gold, it will take you just 2 minutes to get your Hyatt Explorist status back.

Rematch Mlife Gold to Hyatt Explorist

Simply go to this Milfe page (you’ll need to be signed in).

Click the opt-in button.

That will open up a page on the Hyatt website where you’ll login with your Hyatt credentials.

Submit and, just like that, you’re Explorist again. Expiration should be February 2021.

That’s it! High-five yourself and enjoy two more years of Hyatt Explorist.

In case you need a quick reference, here’s a reminder of the current flow chart.

I created this flowchart to make things easier to follow and reference. The post itself provides much greater context, however.

Note that you can only currently match Caesars Diamond to Mlife Gold in person at Borgata in Atlantic City or at the MGM Springfield in Massachusetts.

New to all of this? My “introduction to miles and points” book, MilesTalk: Live Your Wildest Travel Dreams Using Miles and Points is available on Amazon and at major booksellers.

I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
