I’m at 760 nights & 9 years as platinum at Marriott…but I was at 750 nights & 9 years last year (pretty sure? Maybe going crazy). Do you have to hit 10 years as plat within a 10yr time span? Or 10 years as plat at any point in your life?

I often use corporate rates for personal travel and in a sample size of 20 hotels across Hyatt and Marriott, I’ve only been asked for my work badge once at a Courtyard (or possibly Fairfield). I’m leaving my firm soon, but tempted to continue to use the corporate rate after I leave since they so infrequently check. Has anyone had any experience with this?
