I'm trying to continue my Platinum Premier status. What exact date do i need to reach 75 stays by?
stays? thats not a marriott term well unless youre going for megabonus...
Nights? Probably dec 31 - now if the stay ends then or when it posts matters - not sure. same concept applies to megabonus -- if it ends on X - not sure if your end day has to be before the end date of the megabonus or when it posts and they wait to run the #s for some time after to see if it clears
A Marriott status year is the calendar year, which you need to earn annually - although, your status earned lasts 14 months after the year in which you earned it.
So, status must be earned by 31 December for the current calendar year. Just be wary of stays on 31 December. An award stay may post differently than a paid stay, and I'm not sure how a cash+points stay posts. I'm fairly certain (although I may have this backwards) that a 31 December award stay will post and count for the following calendar year, and a paid 31 December stay will post and count for the current year. So, for anyone doing mattress runs or have a new year's crossing stay, if the posting year matters to you, I'd always end a stay on 31 December, and then make another reservation from 31 December until whenever. That means you have to possibly pad one extra night (or extra nights if it is a certificate or 5th night free stay) on the front end to ensure you meet whatever nights necessary
The 18 August program merger could have changed that - no reason they should post differently in my opinion, but I doubt it's changed. It should be as simple as ANY stay that includes 1 January - 31 December regardless how the reservation is split between years should have days of that calendar year post for that calendar year, period.
Someone else recently asked specifically about end of year stays (and it's been asked on Insiders in the past): December 31 stay-- 2018 or 2019 night?
Thanks. Yes I meant nights. So I think this actually goes beyond December 31. Last year I got emails in January that I still had time to make status by staying x nights. Maybe that was an unusual situation?
That was probably an unusual situation. In order to retain your Platinum Premier status you will need to reach 75 nights by December 31.
