This is my first post to the community, after being a reader for quite some time.
I have a question about platinum challenges. I am currently a Gold Elite member and have been for around four or so years. I am based in Australia, with only 6 properties currently in Australia, it is difficult for me to progress beyond gold; however I do stay in Marriott hotels overseas, this is not for an excessive number of nights.
I read of members being offered platinum challenges, however nothing has ever been offered to me. Does anyone have any tips on how to accelerate to platinum? Again, with only 6 properties in Australia, 3 being in my home city, it is rather difficult reaching platinum the conventional way.
Any ideas or suggestions would be helpful.
