Hello! I just logged into my Marriott account to make a reservation and I see that my status has changed from Platinum Elite to Platinum Premier but I can't find any written info on this (not talking about the new tiers post August or whenever, the current tiers). Any idea?
Also, I have until December 31, 2018 to achieve lifetime platinum to be grandfathered into Lifetime Platinum Premier, correct? I have all the nights and I'm only 64,038 points away, which I will easily hit with my travel schedule this year. I want to hit lifetime so that I don't have to deal with the "years" qualification, as I've only been a marriott rewards member for 5 years.
I don't really pay attention to all this stuff, so I apologize if I'm asking obvious questions! I tried to do research before asking!
