I've only ever stayed at a Marriott this year and have 11 nights so far. I gained platinum status last year from linking my spg account. Is the year I linked my account giving me the 1 year as plat?

If it is, that’s fantastic, but also a gaping hole in their account combination methodology

It is they were being very generous. I got 10 years of platinum years at 24 since they also counted my trial years when I was an intern.

I also seem to have matched years counting towards my lifetime status. Graduated in 2015 but already have 7 years at Platinum...

If you have more years platinum at Starwood, you have to combine accounts AFTER the August 18th There was a separate email with instructions. It is not happening automatically when you had the accounts linked before, it’s a separate step!

Yeah I still need to merge my accounts but was wondering if the 1 year I'm seeing on the Marriott app is from last year when I linked them since I didn't ever actually qualify for plat with Marriott. I didn't think linked status counted towards an elite year
