How can I be get the opportunity to be enrolled into the challenge?
Thank you for your inquiry/question(s) regarding an Elite Status challenge. Status challenges are assessed on an individual basis and as such, need to be handled by calling the phone number (801-468-4000). We unfortunately don’t have any further information we can share around Status Challenges.
You have to call to enroll in the Platinum Challenge. After spending 50 minutes on hold with Marriott Rewards, I was told I could enroll in the Platinum Challenge. Requires me to stay 9 separate stays (not 9 days) over a 90-day period; cannot stay in the same location in a 24-hr period. While I heard Marriott eliminated the Platinum upgrade buyback & the roll-over nights from Marriott Vacation Club sales person, I wanted to hear from the Rewards person what the scoop was. We didn't want to spend $31k for Vacation Points to get the permanent Platinum status as the sales person was pitching. I'll miss the Platinum status but really Gold is good enough! Maybe time to look for another travel product that caters to retirees!
