I was just on the phone with them booking a night, and requested that they reinstate my gold status (after it expired in February), and she suggested to enroll me in the platinum challenge starting from May...
Lo and behold, I check my account online later today, and it says I'm a gold member... I guess YMMV :)

I have an spg gold [from amex plat] while my wife has a large amount of spg points, but she is spg preferred not gold,
would we be able to get the upgrades from my gold, and then pay with points from her spg card although its two different accounts? or I can only pay with points from the card who's name was used to make the reservation [in my case my gold card] ?
what is spg gold I have it but I don't know what it will get me?

Having 1 SPG AMEX gets you 2 stays and 5 nights.  I get 4 stays and 10 nights with 2 SPG AMEXs.
Out of curiosity, if someone opens 4 SPG Amex's during the year (via churning) does it accumulate to 8 stays and 20 nights?

There's a site called www.spg.com which might help.

I have trouble believing that is true in perpetuity.

Until the status expires, but not as soon as the amex is canceled.
