Understanding that the qualification requirements for Platinum Premier remain a black box, we polled the group last year.  Tell us your experience below.

It appears that most folks have received their 2013 card by now, so I'm going to go ahead and open voting/polling now.


Results (and comments) from last year's poll are here: http://www.rewards-insiders.marriott.com/polls/1028  

  • PINGREEMAN asked MR directly a while back and posted that: "[On]ly the top three percent receive the Platinum Premier status for one year.  [The] corporate offices [explained] that the qualification process is based upon a comparison of Platinum member accounts. ... [T]he account is looked at as a whole; this will include amount of nights at Marriott Hotels and the dollar amounts spent at the properties."
  • There is the theory that Marriott looks at your previous three years of stays.  (Note that there are two variables there: (1) last three years; (2) stays, not point or something else.)
  • It seems widely accepted that you must be a Platinum member for one of the years in the three year look back to achieve the PP status.
  • We appear to have dis-proven the theory that you need at least 125 nights in the preceding year.

 

Thanks for your input!

  • This poll misses something obvious (longevity in program, numbers of nights spent in high-end/urban properties, bonus nights versus actual nights stayed, hosting big events, etc.). See my comment below.... (26% last year)

  • One or more of the stated assumptions, above, is incorrect, an urban myth, or.... See my comment below.

  • Who cares about Platinum Premier? "You people" take yourselves way too seriously, etc. Additional comments welcome, below.
