By amassing 2M points and 750 nights?
PUTTING THINGS IN PERSPECTIVE
Up until 12/31/2012, to reach Marriott Lifetime Platinum status you needed:
To have accrued at least 3 Million Points, and
Stayed at least 1000 nights, and
Been a Marriott member for at least 12 years, at least one of them platinum.
Up until 12/31/2018, to reach Marriott Lifetime Platinum status you need:
To accrue at least 2 Million Points OR have 10 years minimum at platinum status, PLUS
Have at least 750 eligible nights
(will then convert to Lifetime Platinum Premier as a one-time exception)
Starting 1/1/2019, to reach Marriott Lifetime Platinum status you will need:
To have at least 600 eligible nights, and
To be a platinum member for 10 years minimum (non-consecutive years ok)
**Up until 12/31/2018 “Platinum“ refers to Plat75; starting 1/1/2019 “Platinum” means Plat50
I called to verify my years as Marriott Platinum, and the Customer Service Rep told me that the years had to be consecutive without downgrades. My example: I achieved Marriott Platinum in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, downgraded to Gold in 2016, gold in 2017, and Platinum again in 2018. She said something to the effect of "you are starting over for Lifetime Platinum because the years must be consecutive without dropping below Platinum." What-the-what?
I know I’ve seen it in writing on the Marriott site that “non-consecutive” years are ok.
Also, it currently mentions “A Lifetime status level is determined by the total Elite years achieved at that level or a higher level. For example, Rewards Gold Elite and SPG Gold years are combined and applied toward the total number of Elite years needed for the new Lifetime Gold Elite status — but Rewards Silver Elite years are not because Silver Elite is a lower level than Gold Elite. If you achieved Elite status in both Rewards and SPG in the same year, you’ll receive credit for two Elite years”
Nowhere here is the word “consecutive” mentioned.
grasshopperau, there are several examples of mis- information that CS reps have given members. Remember they have exactly the same information on the rules as we have, otherwise some of the confusion would have been clarified. I would not put a lot of stock in what you were told.
