Long time Marriott customer but did not really focus on points, etc until this year. I signed up for the Credit card and was fortunate enough to setup a few events for a golf company which has earned me elite nights.
So here is where I stand:
0 nights needed to renew Gold Elite level
11 nights needed to achieve Platinum level
- Nights stayed15
- Bonus nights49
- Rewards Credit Card:19
- Rewarding Events:30
- 2014 rollover:0
- 2015 total64
So a few questions:
1. If I do nothing for the rest of this year, then in 2016 I will be gold status right? And My 15 nights for having the credit card will hit next year and then do I get 14 rollover nights for being >50?
2. I REALLY want to make it to Platinum but my travel will not allow that to happen by December (stupid me thought I had til Feb since that is when I got the credit card). Id love to be able to say I can get the 11 nights by spending $33K on the card but there is 0 chance of that happening.
So, Im assuming being within 11 wont get me a generous nudge into platinum right? I do have an event planned at the end of Jan that would get me the 11 I need, but guess it will be too late? If so, could I "buy" the 11 nights to get me where I need to be? I looked online but most of the "buying" were for people that had already achieved a certain level and wanted to keep it.
Sorry for the lengthy post, great site!
