Match Your M Life Gold Status To Hyatt Explorist

Update 3/1/20: Time to match M Life To Hyatt again.

Update 1/1/20: This is still working

Update 1/1/19: This is working in 2019 as well. Relevant links:

If you’ve previously matched your old Hyatt Platinum status to M Life gold and then matched that to the new Hyatt Explorist then you’re Explorist status will be due to expire on 2/28/18. M Life Gold status doesn’t expire until 9/30/18 though, this means you can match your M Life Gold to Hyatt Explorist until 2/28/19. You can do this match online here. Hyatt Explorist gives you the following benefits:

  • Receive 4 Club lounge access awards annually, which include breakfast daily. (these will post instantly)
  • 20% bonus on base points
  • Full list of benefits here

I can’t really see this lasting long term, as it would effectively let people match between the two programs in a constant loop. But maybe there is a small enough number of people in this situation that it won’t be an issue (not really possible anymore as the Chase Hyatt card only gives Discoverist status).

If you’re having issues, follow these steps: log into Mlife in another tab first, then go to Hyatt page. If error is that you already matched then log out of Hyatt and log back in and see if it updated to 2019 anyway

I just recently matched my Marriott Platinum to Hyatt Explorist and then attempted to match to MGM gold. I get a message saying I am on a trial membership…what do I do?

Got Explorist status last November (and matched to M gold) via a corporate promo, but didn’t qualify for extension and was downgraded to Discoverist last week.
Now matched M gold to Explorist and it’s valid thru Feb 2022.

Matched. Valid Through Feb 2022. I was already Explorist till Feb. 2021 so seems like it extends the validity by 1 more year.

Had matched MLife back to Explorist thru 28 Feb 2021 but tried today to extend they 2022 and got this message: “We’re sorry
We’re sorry! We’re currently unable to process your request. Please try again later.
Your M life Rewards and World of Hyatt accounts have already been matched.”

Still glad to enjoy parking and some perks at each program.

I’m getting an Error message trying to rematch Mlife Gold to Hyatt. My Hyatt Explorist expires 2/27/2021. Do I need to wait until it expires to rematch again?

The club access award benefit was removed on March 1st last year for status matches. They can only be earned through the milestone reward night program.

Where do the Club lounge access awards show up in your account? I am not seeing them after status matching.

Club access awards are no longer given for matches only when hitting milestones. WOH changed the way rewards were given last year.

Also applies to Suite Night Awards for upgrading. You have to hit “milestones”

From a business standpoint this makes sense as it costs them money for everyone and their mother trying to status match and having to give those benefits without actually earning them from stays.

Just matched MLife gold to Hyatt to extend explorist to 2021. Can I rematch Hyatt to MLife now to extend the gold status to 2021 or is it too early for that?

You will probably have to wait until after Oct. 1 to match back to Mlife, but you can try it and be the DP you want to see.
