I just spoke to SPG they said that they will request to make me gold and hopefully should go through.

What did you have to say to make that happen? My SPG Gold just lapsed.

Why did it lapse, I was under the impression if you reach Gold it stays Gold.

2/29 status year ended. I didn't earn it from stays, I got it as an Amex Plat cardholder (which I no longer am)

So I guess this settles a part of the debate on status gained from CCs, no?

You're AmEx Plat was closed, and you kept your status until 2/29? So if the card is closed, I guess the status will last until...

I was just discussing with her my reservation and I asked if I'm gold, so she said no, so I asked could you make me a gold member she said she'll send in a request.

The Gold they gave me on the phone didn't post, so I called them up again, and they gave it to me w/ no more questions asked, and now it's showing up.
Yay

I received gold after making a complaint (spg made 2 reservations for me 1 cash & 1 points at the dead sea, and it took me over an hour to sort out the issue) it posted right away. Then I called up for my mother and told the rep that she was looking into going away & the Gold status would be an extra incentive, they upgraded her right away to. This was done through the Platnium customer service. I always call them for res, issues... they are much more giving. Never had a problem calling even though I'm only Gold.

Platinum is 25 stays or 50 nights.
Having a SPG AMEX or 2 can help you get extra free stay/night credits..
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Having 1 SPG AMEX gets you 2 stays and 5 nights.  I get 4 stays and 10 nights with 2 SPG AMEXs.

1 biz 1 consumer? They both count towards the same status?
