How to Calculate Rollover Nights

Every year about this time, the question of rollover nights comes up.

 

How many rollover nights will I get?

What happened to my rollover nights from last year?

Why didn't I get any rollover nights?

 

The formula is pretty simple.

 

Start with the number of nights earned for the current year

Subtract any rollover nights carried over from the previous year

Subtract the number of nights to maintain your current status (10, 50, or 75)

The result is the number of rollover nights to begin the new year.

 

Here are a few visual examples that may help.

 

I end 2015 with 94 nights as shown below.

Number of nights 94

Rollover from last year 0

Number to maintain Platinum 75

 

94 - 0 - 75 = 19

 

I'll start 2016 with 19 rollover nights and will need to earn 56 nights in 2016 to stay Platinum in 2017.

 

 

Suppose I ended 2015 with the same 94 nights but had 10 rollover nights from 2014.

Number of nights 94

Rollover from last year 10

Number to maintain Platinum 75

 

94 - 10 - 75 = 9

 

I would begin 2016 with 9 rollover nights and will need to earn 66 nights in 2016 to stay Platinum in 2017.

 

What if I rolled over 20 nights from 2014 and still end with the same 94 nights?

Number of nights 94

Rollover from last year 20

Number to maintain Platinum 75

 

94 - 20 - 75 = -1

 

Anything zero or below means no rollover nights and I have to earn 75 nights in 2016 to retain Platinum for 2017.

 

Previous year rollover nights always seem to trip people up. Just remember to subtract those first since they don't rollover again.

 

One other thing to remember. If you drop down a level because you didn't have enough nights to retain your current level, there are no rollover nights at all.

 

It's pretty simple once you understand. The tricky part is reaching that basic understanding.
