I would do it to get the plat counter up for lifetime plat. then when the time comes you don’t even need to think about this :)

Rewards nights also count. Book a trip and enjoy the 3 nights.

Worth it to pay for a few nights? Was going to try and book a 1 hour meeting on a Saturday for the 10 bonus nights but no hotels near me want to make a cheap room available (and must purchase full day). Have lifetime gold from SPG, but low on years plat to make life time plot. Should I just go back to Hyatt or jump to Hilton next year (gold and the Amex aspire seems like the way to go). Only hesitation is I have a few million Marriott points to eventually spend down when the kids are old enough to enjoy travel.

I’m on the same boat. 2 nights short of 50 and no travel plans. I might just book four points of something equally shitty

Take your wife/husband away for a long weekend before holidays.

Definitely worth it. I am 2 short and doing the same.

Use some of those points Elite night credit will still count, just won’t count toward spending for ambassador nor will you receive points for those nights

Agree it’s worth getting Platinum! Find a local hotel with the fewest points needed, use points for 2 or 3 nights (that way you get the 2,000 bonus points), check in, and then leave after you check in.

Damn. Looks like I'm blowing $200 bucks on 3 weekend nights at a courtyard down the street.

Why not use your points.......?

Exit opportunity suggestions for a tax manager? I currently earn $100K, but specialize in small to medium sized businesses in a smaller metro area.

With my health off the rails after nearly a decade in public accounting, I’m honestly starting to look even at positions in the $70s. Suggestions welcome.
