Hello, due to a family tragedy this year, I will not earn enough nights to keep my platinum status for 2013. To date I only have 35 nights. Is there a way to purchase or extend my status for next year?
If you are not maintained at your Platinum status after the end of this year, contact customer service. There are options such as "Buy Back" and challenges that could get you back to that status (if necessary) quickly.
there have been multiple instances where Marriott has 'comped' platinum for folks that fall short one year. I'm not sure if they weigh your past performance or if they weigh how close to making it you are, but it seems to have happened often enough that you likely have a chance. sorry to hear of your family tragedy. Regarding buying in, I do believe there has been conversation that you can do it, but I have no idea of the procedure.
Shoeman is so right!
I had another friend who had the same situation happen, and Marriott kept him Platinum. It is better for all to keep you in Platinum, hope it goes well. Sorry to also hear about your family tragedy, and good luck and happy travels!
sorry about your family tragedie......... about the platinum status if marriott dont will give you free again your status, i think same last year, you can buy your platnum status with 50000 points
Great Point, Klaus.....
BuffaloGal.. I had a friend in similar straits. He called and explained the situation. He also had quite a few nights in upcoming reservations for the 1st quarter. I know they extended him.
