3 nights away from Marriott platinum. Does it reset at the end of the calendar EOY? If so, worth paying out of pocket for those 3 nights?

Call them and ask them if they will credit you the additional days, since 72 is quite a few, you travel regularly as a consultant, SPG only requires 50 nights, etc. If you strike out, then find a cheapo Marriott property and spend the $ if sufficiently important to you.

Check the Marriott reward program website. Do a simple cost analysis. This is not complicated

Happened to me last year, called and they gave me platinum!

Find the cheapest Marriott property within 30 minutes of you. Book for 3 nights on points or cash and then check in, make the room look lived in and leave.

Also, if you don't get it, ask to take the Platinum Challenge next year. If you have 11 stays (not nights) during a 3 month period, you make platinum.

Depends whether you want rollover. You can renew for 2018 with a 22 night head start or take plat for 2017.

Yes. 3 nights in a Spring Hill suites. Do it

By the way you still can elite nights if you stay with points so you potentially don't even have to spend dollars

Thanks everyone! I called them and they bumped me up to gold

Platinum*

Does the amount of "Breakthrough Cases" rising among those fully vaccinated make anyone... wonder? Now there's a "Delta+" variant? Now they are saying "No vaccine is 100% effective so this is to be expected"? As if we're just suppose to shrug our shoulders after they have been pressuring everyone to get the vaccine? I'm fully vaxed but I can't help but wonder... this is what the Anti-Vaxers have been warning and saying the whole time and it's making me second guess which side I'm on...

Hey fish fam, need an expectations level set. Ambassador status, staying at a St Regis for honeymoon. Concierge emailed to ask the occasion ahead of time, and we mentioned again at valet, check in, and breakfast - haven’t gotten anything other than “congrats.” No upgrade. No information at check in re: amenities or “rituals” (e.g., 3 days in found out that there is a daily bloody Mary tasting - would’ve been nice to know). Am I overreacting to have hoped for something, anything celebratory?
