Friday morning, the Internet exploded with reports of people being granted instant Hyatt Diamond status.  While I’m not a big status chaser, I applied via DM on Twitter as well as through emailing

I’m currently SPG Gold (also IHG Platinum, Hilton Gold, Best Western Diamond) and sent my DM in on Friday morning around 8 a.m. Eastern.  Not surprisingly, the entire Internet exploded on this offer, and it’s just now that they are getting back to me.

Honestly, I’m not sure what Hyatt Platinum status will even get me – is it even worth applying for?

Leave your results in the comments – did you get the coveted Diamond status, or are you “stuck” with Platinum?
