Well, I received my official renewal for PP today. I was somewhat surprised to be renewed in that I had an 8 week stretch in Oct-Nov where I had no travel at all due to some surgery. My guess is that the formula used included $$ revenue and since all of my stays are at full service Marriotts or above, that likely got me over the hump. Either way, woo-hoo for me! By the way, the gift that came in this huge box is a nifty little portable power charger that has become a must have in todays travel life.
Thank you marriott! Now, about those requests for guaranteed upgrades when using points……….
