- Platinum challenge with Marriot - Fast track challenge, if possible, with your preferred airline if you think you’ll meet requirements and fits your project needs - CSR card to pay everything over $100 You’re good to go

How do you do a platinum challenge with Marriott?

Stick to one hotel and one airline... Best thing I have done in my 20 years of travel

Pick the airline with the most flight options from your home airport so you can hopefully fly exclusively with them to other cities with less need to connect. You'll want to consolidate status and miles with one airline. Same with hotel chains... Hilton and Marriott have properties almost everywhere so pick one of those.
