Effective 18AUG2018, when will the new program issue the "Lifetime Platnium Premier Elite" card? Will it be metal like the Lifetime Platinum SPG card?
Good question. In the past, Marriott had not issues a Lifetime card but continued to issue a yearly card for lifetime members. Not sure what the solution will be moving forward under the new program.
I've been a lifetime platinum members for 'years' and the card has always been plastic. Honestly, I could care less the material as long as the benefits are there.
I've received a Lifetime Platinum Elite card from Marriott before. It's not made of metal, it's fancier than a Marriott Rewards card with the words Platinum Elite Lifetime above your name.
This is the difference between the platinum card & the lifetime platinum card previously issued by Marriott. The lifetime card did away with the expiration date.
I’m hoping the new LTPP cards will be as unique as the status, perhaps metal or translucent.
Interesting. I've been lifetime Platinum for several years now and never received a Lifetime card. Oh well. Not like I really need it.
As I mentioned earlier - neither the material nor the 'imprint' matters to me......I don't think I know where the card might be in my desk junk draw! I always get the goodies available whenever I check into a Marriott family property. My standing must be buried somewhere in the mound of data they have compiled on my travels over the years!
The suite with a view is always appreciated and it's lovely when the JW Marriott El Convento Cusco includes a mango in my welcome basket!
I love the digital version which can be viewed anytime without waiting for anything, loosing it, or it wearing out.
I can even PDF the digital card and store it anywhere with as many copies as I want.
I keep mine safely in my digital wallet where I can share it with my spouse or kids if they need to access it for any reason while in residence at any property if I'm not available.
Cant do any of that with metal or plastic.....
I had no idea Marriott issued actual Platinum Elite membership cards. It's my first (and most likely last) time at this status level, I'd love to have a souvenir to commemorate it.
I’ve been doing work on my yearend which means rifling through my desk for any unsubmitted receipts - there’s always a few! And whilst searching I found 2 Lifetime Platinum Elite cards - I didn’t notice I’d even received one. Anyhow it seems I’m a double lifetimer - unless of course they send out the card annually in which case, nothing to see here, sorry to have detained you all...
I prefer to use my 1985 issued red HGA card that I still have.
