On The Road / Re: Master Thread of Discussion on Marriott / SPG Merger

DP for who ever this would help: I spent the 75k for Plat on Ritz by July 5th. Status never changed even after 8 weeks and no matter how many times I called Chase or Marriott they kept on blaming the other and it would lead to nothing. A couple day ago I had enough of it and called Chase one more time and kept on pushing and pushing till they agreed to call Marriott and sort it out while I was on the line. They did just that but only was able to upgrade me to Platinum Elite. I told them since I met the spend before the merger I should be getting Platinum Preferred Elite and they said they will start a case as all she can do is upgrade at most to Plat Elite. Took a couple days and following up and some arguing but finally have Platinum Preferred Elite!

How this helps you is that if you at one point during the Merger you were Plat elite, even if it was just for a day, and then revered to Gold elite call in and ask to be transferred to the appropriate department that handles status upgrades and downgrades and tell them it was a glitch that downgraded you and you'd like to request an upgrade up to Plat Elite. I was Plat Elite for that one day during Aug 18 and she was able to see that and claim that she does not know why they downgraded it but she can easily upgrade it... Good luck and as always HUCA

My daughter moved her points from SPG to Marriott , we were thinking she'll be Platinum, she ended up with Gold, if I knew I would have transferred her 800000 points from her SPG to mine , since I ended up as Platinum. Is it too late to do anything to transfer her points to my account? I know Marriott allows 50k only.
New limit is 100k. Havnt read many DPís but perhaps try the booking trip where you ďwantĒ to use your daughters points to complete a booking.

Can the 2 nights sign up bonus earned be used by someone else other than the card holder?

It should be just like any other Marriott reservation. Make reservation in your name and call to add guest and say you are arriving on a later flight or something.

Has anyone who cancelled an award booking actually seen their points credited/deposited back into their account.  It seems this issue has been a problem since day 1 --- unfortunately, I've been waiting for 12 days without my points being returned to my account.  They started saying it would take 7-10 days, yesterday they told me 5-10 business days -- today they said they don't have any idea when the issue will be resolved.

Just spoke to someone now. They said that my cancellation created certificates, in my case 90k certificates as it was for the SRBH, that are just floating around in my account and she was able to see them but because they have "system issues" they cant be cancelled and redeposited just yet.

I had the same quesstion.  Aside from the sign-up bonus, and if I'm already at gold status and none of them can get me to Platinum, what's the benefit of this card?  I'm a Hilton loyalist (I actually earn from large meeting and stay expenses for work and they are way more generous with bonus earning to where I can get often get about 30% back in points) but we do spend some money at SPG hotels and I'm trying to figure out what would be the best card to put that business spend on, basically to keep one card for the annual free night and to use only for SPG expenses.  This high end card, or any of them, don't offer a way to spend up to platinum or spend up to earning an annual second night, right?

It seems like the SPG Biz card also gets 6ppd and will also get gold status at 30k spend, which we will spend at spg properties.  Y'all jumping on this just to get the bonus, free night and put back in the sock drawer?  I want to make sure I'm not missing something.  :D
Doesnít the Lux offer platinum at 75k spend?

Didn't work, but thank you. Rep wasn't willing to manually apply the offer. Still looking for DP of someone pushing their luck and applying despite getting the warning.
Thatís what HUCA is for

Got the ineligible warning... any chance of approval if I click through? Haven't found any DPs of people trying to click through the warning on this or other cards.
Possible work around DP here:
