Unless you're a frequent road warrior, qualifying for top tier hotel elite status is a tough feat to accomplish. You can speed up the process by leveraging the right cobranded credit card, but the fastest way to go from zero to 100 is with a status match or challenge.

Recently Hyatt has been sending out targeted status challenges to select members. If you're lucky enough to receive this offer, you can get three complimentary months of Hyatt Globalist status. If you stay 20 nights during this trial period, your status will be extended almost a full year until February 2020.

Earning Hyatt Globalist status normally requires 60 nights a year or 100,000 base points (equivalent to $20,000 in spending), so this deal is a great shortcut if you're targeted. Globalist status comes with a 30% points bonus (or an additional 1.5 points per dollar spent), space available room upgrades including suites, four confirmable suite upgrade awards, club lounge access and/or free breakfast and a host of other perks.

If you're targeted for this offer, you should strongly consider rearranging your upcoming travel for the next three months to include 20 nights at Hyatt hotels, and you might even be able to find a good value mattress run. Hyatt recently opened award bookings at its new Hyatt Ziva and Zilara Cap Cana properties in the Dominican Republic, as well as adding 57 Small Luxury Hotels of the World properties to its award chart. This is a huge addition and gives you more properties than ever before to pick from. If you plan on booking a few Hyatt stays in the near future, don't forget to apply for The World Of Hyatt Credit Card, which is currently offering a tiered welcome bonus of up to 50,000 points after spending $6,000 total in the first six months.
