Congratulations Nipper! .... Again.
Got moderated for tagging your name..... Ugh!
Yea same thing happened to me before makes no sense.
Way to go!
I am waiting to get that same welcome for the first time, hopefully soon!
Congratulations! Well done!
Was it as good as the first time?
No I think this is the 3rd time. Almost qualified for next year as well.
There has to be some kind of comp for all those days away from home.
Maybe it will count as multiple Platinum elite years.
That is awesome. Congratulations! I thought you already had enough elite plat years?
I was just joking around .
Congrats. Let us know if it’s worth it
what counts torward the 20000 $
Spending on hotel folios.
aclapp It appears non-tax spending on your hotel bill. Almost all of my spend is room related (no room service, parking, resort fee, etc) so I cannot tell if those count but they should
Congrats, nipper and hope it sticks this time round, it should.
Do tell us later this year whether it’s any use!
I received this e-mail from my Ambassador after I asked why Marriott took away my Ambassador status. I’m still waiting for my Ambassador status to be restored. Will report back next week if it does or does not show up on my account. To be clear, I earned Ambassador status via SPG pre-merge and not through Marriott post-merge, so this information is meant for the SPG people who’ve had their Ambassador status stripped by Marriott.
Thank you for sharing. I am hopeful my notice will be coming in also. Cheers!
Has your confirmation made it yet, arizonatag? You must be close now!
Not yet. Submitted info to customer care but no word yet. Not really concerned yet as I don't need anything until probably after first of the year. Cheers!
For me it is still not showing Ambassador despite having for 2018:
- 108 nights (204 with rollovers)
- a bit over 20k Spend.
I just don‘t get what is missing. Last year my nights and spend were even higher for sure.
Been a Marriott Plat/ Plat Prem since 2012 and also in Lifetime Plat Prem thankfully
I think Marriott is still playing catch up.
I know this is Marriott choice to make you and Ambassador, but may I ask how many night a year do you stay at a Marriott?
You’re more re than a little mixed up here, sdavie
Before the merger on 18 August there were the following ultra-tiers
1. Marriott Platinum Premier - an invite only status with secret criteria, As a result of sharing info online it’s pretty clear you needed 3 consecutive years at Platinum AND at least 125 nights stay credit in the year immediately before being offered PLUS an unknown spend criteria that wasn’t hugely demanding but would be difficult for a pure Fairfield or Courtyard stayer to reach. No mandated benefits other than an annual gift and only that if you’re resident in the USA!
2. SPG Platinum Ambassador - straightforward 100 nights required for this but bearing in mind Starwoods small footprint not that easy. Even so, much easier to get than Marriotts Plat Premier. But comes with an ambassador to grease your VIP wheels with every hotel stay!
So before 18 August 2018, SPG stay 100 and - BANG - you’re an Ambassador. At Marriott do 3 consecutive minimum 75-night years and then 125 nights AND spend an unspecified amount and you *might* become a Plat Premier.
Now since 18 Aug Plat Premier is the new name for the 75 night level, just stay 75 nights and you’re a Plat Premier. And if you stay 100 nights AND spend $20,000 over the year you’ll be promoted to a Plat Premier Ambassador. At present there’s no semi-secret invitation only ultra level.
