If I have 25 spg stays in 2018, will I get Marriott Plat in 2019? Or need 25 stays by August 2018?

End of May was the plan.

What will happen to my 7 night cat 5 voucher from marriott...
Will I still be able to use after 8/1?
Will I still be able to convert it to 45k points?

TIA!

I have a feeling they will be pretty  generous as they have been up till this point...

 They’re probably not announcing the conversion rates as they don’t want everybody to buy like crazy..

Yup. I'd expect a fair conversion rate or a lot of points.

I have about 170k SPG available. Should I transfer 100k to a United/marriott category 6 package? I have no plans for any of the points but targeting a trip to Israel next year and *A has the most options anyways.
