I've heard of targeted promotions, such as double elite night credits.
How do we qualify for this? I may come up just short this year in renewing my platinum status and would love to be "targeted"!
Unfortunately, you don't get to pick yourself as a target for "special" promotions. A few years back, I got selected for a promotion call "August Points." It overlapped with the last part of the summer bonus and the first part of the fall MegaBonus giving those few folks targeted the opportunity to have a stay count for two promos at the same time.
Unless Marriott reaches out to you on some sort of targeted promotion, you aren't eligible. Waiting or hoping for something like this is probably not a good idea.
As for coming up a bit short in renewing Platinum for next year, you may have a few other options
You can also sign up for the Marriott Rewards CC from Chase and earn 15 nights plus one elite night for each $3,000 spent using the card. Another thought, make sure you have listed your birthday on your personal profile and have elected to receive all promotional materials from Marriott. This will earn you one additional elite night credit during your birthday month.
