SPG Status Match To Change To A Challenge
« on: March 31, 2011, 07:10:24 PM »
Send in your status match request now if you want to beat the new policy!

Quote from: Starwood Lurker
The folks at SPG want to give advance notice to the Flyertalk community that there will soon be a change in policy regarding status match requests from competing frequent stay programs. Starwood Preferred Guest is evolving its policy on status matches to Platinum to a Stay Challenge format beginning April 1, 2011.

Any contacts regarding a Stay Challenge offer will be done via email to the Platinum Concierge department. Any member wishing to apply for a Stay Challenge beginning April 1, 2011 can contact them at platinum.liason@starwoodhotels.com in order to request consideration.

Members will be advised on the full requirements of their Stay Challenge and then contacted to advise if the Stay Challenge has been met. Should a member not successfully complete a Stay Challenge, they may request another once the original Challenge has expired.

Best regards,

William R. Sanders
Social Media Specialist
Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide

2013, wow!
I know. Why? Is it because of my status being matched? How does this work?

I always thought the cutoff was June, but I'm not about to complain.

My understanding always was, that the will always give you min 1 year, so once it's after Feb 28, you will get until Feb 28 almost two years later.
