I will hit lifetime platinum status through Marriott rewards by the end of this year but, I won’t be able to get there by August 1 when the new changes take place. I need less than 50 nights and only 75,000 points, but that won’t likely come until the October or November timeframe. I see where it says in the fine print that you can still reach lifetime platinum status through Marriott rewards if you reach it by the end of 2018 which is great! That being said, my question is once I hit lifetime platinum this year through the current Marriott rewards program will I then get lifetime platinum premiere elite status through the new program?
From what I’m reading in other threads it seems like members are worried that they must hit lifetime platinum through Marriott rewards before August 1 in order to get lifetime platinum premiere elite status. Thanks for any clarity you can provide for hitting lifetime platinum premiere Elite status.
