SPG - Marriott Lifetime Status
« on: May 16, 2018, 12:53:06 PM »
So Dan's post is very helpful (https://www.dansdeals.com/points-travel/marriott/will-able-hit-lifetime-spg-marriott-status-year-lifetime-program-devalued)

Heres my situation:

SPG:
LIFETIME NIGHTS
72
YEARS ELITE
5

Marriott:
Lifetime Status
Nights 165

Points 454,243

2018 Bonus Nights: Rewards Credit Card:15


To double check, I just called in and was told I don't need any point requirements, so that's good.
My understanding is that I only need another 13 Nights before the end of the year and I should be Lifetime Gold.
Sounds about right?
I am not sure if the 15 nights from this year posted yet, by phone they said it did, but it's not in account activity.

Also, do third party stays (chase portal/Expedia) count for lifetime status nights?
Pretty sure my numbers are higher than would be without counting them.

If I'm not mistaken, there is a point requirement through August (year end?) but not after. Until then, you need the nights and the points.

I Dan's post it says this, with no mention of points:

All members who have 5 years of elite status and 250 nights from both programs combined by 12/31/18 will get Lifetime Gold.

My reason for posting here is to clarify what i need to do for LT Gold

These are the 2 lifetime requirements. The one with point requirements, is effective prior to the merge of programs, the one without, is effective after.

Right, but I am asking specifically about the "Concessions" that don't seem to have any point requirements according to Dan's post.
