It's hard to find out where I stand on the lifetime status. My account activity shows the total number of nights but not the total number of points I have earned to date. Does anybody know how to see the total points from the web site?
You will have to call Marriot Rewards - very easy - I called them a month ago and it took about 5 minutes but they were able to provide me with my total points.
lovetotravel is right you would need to call or email Marriott Rewards customer service to get that information. I recommend keeping a running total once you get the info. I have a excel file that I maintain and update once a year to keep track of my progress.
Thank you for letting me know how I can get the current point balance. But I thought it would be easy enough for Marriott to implement such a feature on the web site to show the current balance so that we don't have to track with our Excel spreadsheet, etc. They have the numbers. Why not just show the numbers like they do with the number of nights stayed this year, lifetime, or otherwise.
Great idea. I am calling tomorrow.
You can read your total lifetime rewards nights in your account status. However, to understand what you need to achieve Lifetime Silver (400 I believe), Gold (500 I believe) and Platinum(750) and you also need to know your lifetime total points, Number of years you have participated in MR and have achieved the respective level at least once during your Lifetime. It is a good idea to maintain a spreadsheet and calling MR will update you on present status.
Are the numbers that you mention in parenthesis, the number of nights? I have over 1600 nights in the past 8 years. Imwas a platinum premier last year, now am platinum elite. Do you know what the lifetime member requirements are?
They are indeed the number of nights necessary for the lifetime elite levels. Lifetime Platinum is the 750 nights and 2,000,000 points accumulated, I'd suspect you will have the 2 million with your 1600 paid nights or be darn close.
"IAHFLYR" mentions correctly the number of nights I put in parenthesis is the number of stayed nights and it also includes the number of nights you get as credit from your Marriott Rewards Credit card. That is, every year you get (15) nights free to start the year and you also get (1) night stay credit for every 3,000 rolling dollars spent(rolling $ means if you charge $5,000 this month you get 1 night and only need $1,000 next month for your next night credit).
The big thing I want to explain is that in order to achieve Lifetime Platinum status you also need to be enrolled in the program for 12 years.
One question I ask is :
What is the difference between Platinum Premier and Platinum Elite?
Perhaps you should start a new discussion about the differences between Platinum Elite and Platinum Premier. I became Platinum Premier this year but don't see any differences in service or number of points or anything. I asked one of the Marriott employee and he didn't know either other than that only first 5% of the elite members qualified for it.
Never heard the 12 year requirement. Probably runs hand in hand for most anyway, taking that long to accumulate. I have nearly 1200 Life time nights, but it is time to check the points account. If you hit life time God for example, and say you don't travel anywhere the next year, and no rollover nights, do you always start towards Platinum from that level? I guess you would.
I thought it was 10 years in the program, not 12. Never understood the years in the program requirement.
They did drop the # of nights required, it had been 1000 for PLT for life, dropped to 750
If you email them via the website, they will email you back with the totals and then you can email back and forth to get updates once you have an email thread. Marriott should update their web system to allow these cumulative totals to be seen on the user account page, but I've not seen any progress in that area yet.
If you click on the nights in your status to look at the detail, at the very bottom it shows your lifetime status in both nights and points. I found this after I called the Platinum desk for the information
Sorry for the multiple posts, the editor kept giving me an error but it worked.
