SPG - Marriott Lifetime Status
« on: May 16, 2018, 12:53:06 PM »
So Dan's post is very helpful (https://www.dansdeals.com/points-travel/marriott/will-able-hit-lifetime-spg-marriott-status-year-lifetime-program-devalued)

Heres my situation:

SPG:
LIFETIME NIGHTS
72
YEARS ELITE
5

Marriott:
Lifetime Status
Nights 165

Points 454,243

2018 Bonus Nights: Rewards Credit Card:15


To double check, I just called in and was told I don't need any point requirements, so that's good.
My understanding is that I only need another 13 Nights before the end of the year and I should be Lifetime Gold.
Sounds about right?
I am not sure if the 15 nights from this year posted yet, by phone they said it did, but it's not in account activity.

Also, do third party stays (chase portal/Expedia) count for lifetime status nights?
Pretty sure my numbers are higher than would be without counting them.

If I'm not mistaken, there is a point requirement through August (year end?) but not after. Until then, you need the nights and the points.

I Dan's post it says this, with no mention of points:

All members who have 5 years of elite status and 250 nights from both programs combined by 12/31/18 will get Lifetime Gold.

My reason for posting here is to clarify what i need to do for LT Gold

These are the 2 lifetime requirements. The one with point requirements, is effective prior to the merge of programs, the one without, is effective after.

Right, but I am asking specifically about the "Concessions" that don't seem to have any point requirements according to Dan's post.

You are trying to ping @Dan ?
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Sounds right to me.

So, in essence, all point requirements are not necessary anymore?

Also, do third party stays (Chase Portal/Expedia) count for lifetime nights?
Pretty sure my numbers are higher than if they didn't count them.

Seems like they took away Lifetime Points from the website...

Going to have to be more specific than that.

Well, it's not mentioned anywhere on that wiki or thread... Hundreds of posts will people helping each other and no mention of these very big concessions...
