If J waits to choose in early January, 2019, will Suite Nights last until 2/2021 or 2/2020? C
The Terms & Conditions (para. 4.3.c.vi) actually do not say anything at all about SNAs expiring. Maybe they don't expire, but if they do I'd expect a 1-year expiration from the date you qualified for them, not the date you chose them. Best to call Marriott and ask.
The only date mentioned in the SNA Terms is this:
In the event that an eligible Platinum Elite Member fails to select an Annual Choice Benefit by January 14th of the year following the applicable Qualifying Period, the Member will receive five (5) Suite Night Awards™ as his/her Annual Choice Benefit ("Suite Night Awards," individually "Suite Night Award").

Thank-you samirs for finding the answer! C
I thought you only got 5 suite nights now when you reach 50 Nights What are the additional benefits for reaching 25 more..i.e.75 Nights?
The conditions apply if you have 5 suite nights or 10. They expire at the end of the year following the year in which they are earned. If you earn 5 suite nights between January 2019 and May 2019 for example they will expire on 31/12/2020 but you can use them as soon as you get them. They will however expire on 31/12/2020 and you will not be allowed to use them for a stay that starts before that date and finishes after. I was not allowed to use them in a stay this year that started on 30/12/18 and finishes on 2/1/19. They will be cancelled in order of earning. So if you have 5 suite nights due to expire at the end of 2020 and another 5 due to expire at the end of 2021 and you have a stay booked from 29/12/ 20 until 3/1/21 you will use 2 of the expiring nights and 3 of the next year's nights. You will lose 3 of the expiring nights.
Does anyone know where to find the screen to select suite night awards?
I hit 50 nights over a week ago and have been credited for the stay. But I cannot find how to select the SNAs...
It is in your account activity as a link. If you don't have the link then Marriott hasn't credited you with the 50 nights platinum level. Cheers!
