Anyone know any good SPG challenges? There’s an 18 nights to platinum online but not sure if anything better out there... (and yes, I know I’m being a bit greedy...)

You answered your own question 18 nights is stupid easy for platinum. If you don't stay 6 weeks in a hotel why would you even need platinum

You can just google SPG platinum challenge and it should take you there @A3

like

Also platinum SPG => Platinum Marriott => United Silver, although it's not quite related to OP's question

like

There is not.

If you are plat with Marriott you get automatic status match to platinum. Also, if you are gold with delta, I believe you automatically get gold with SPG

like

Marriott platinum challenge is 9 stays and would also get you SPG plat. Prob not better than what you’re seeing for 18 nights. Hotel hop and you could prob get there faster w Marriott but I’m too old for that shit now

A bit?

Anyone have the link for this challenge?

Does gold with spg get gold with Delta?

@EY1 no

Can you redo the challenge if you fail

Yes

Yes but you have to wait a few years. Either 3 or 5; I forget

How do you fail the challenge?? You should be doing the challenge unless you know you'll be traveling consistently for the next several months

Some people change projects suddenly and it’s beyond their control. It’s not often but unfortunate

Thanks Bain1, agree I’m too old for that too!

You fail the challenge when you don’t meet the criteria in the allotted time.

Do u get platinum SPG match if you’re Delta platinum?

If anyone is interested in taking a summer trip to Myrtle Beach from 7/29-8/5, I am renting out my timeshare with Marriott's OceanWatch Villas at Grande Dunes. This resort is right on the beach and offers many fun activities for the whole family! The two-bed, two-bath condo has a fully furnished kitchen and can fit up to 8 people. I am ideally looking for someone to rent it out for the entire week for about 3K total. Message me for more information!
