It's pretty nice - shorter lines, easier boarding, been bumped to first class, etc.

Is there any way that anyone knows of to get lifetime SPG platinum or do all of Starwood's status levels have to be re-earned each year?

Dan, you are just teasing us unless you can share some of your "secrets".  Can you give a run through on how you achieve most of those? Spending? Status match, etc?

Thanks,

Doesn't exist AFAIK.
Hyatt has lifetime Diamond and it's nearly impossible: 10 years as a diamond and $200,000 in spending credited to Hyatt points.  If you credit to miles it doesn't count.

I've seen reports that you don't need 10 years as a diamond, but $200k is hard enough
