So I just merged my SPG + Marriott accounts and I wasn't expecting anything much. 

Prior to merging, I had 7 years of Platinum in my Marriott.

After merging, I now have 9 years of Platinum (that was a surprise)

Current nights: 637

Current Life Points : 1.4M

Current nights this year: 137 (will qualify for 1 more year of platinum)


My question is :

1. Should I still try to get to 1.6 M so that I get to LifeTime Platinum?

2. Or will I qualify for 10 years + 600 nights since I've achieve Platinum for 2019?
