During the merger of the programs (SPG, Ritz Carleton and Marriott Rewards) when did they announce that there will no longer be rollover nights credited to help you re-qualify for your status? This was a great feature for non-lifetime members. I had a big travel year for me where I religiously stayed at a Marriott or SPG property for almost 100 nights.
I was also quite excited to meet the legacy lifetime Marriott gold status 700+ stays and 1.6 million points by Dec 2018 and was hoping to be mapped to the Lifetime platinum level since I finally made it; considering Canada does not have a good financial Marriott credit card that I keep reading about in this forum to help me get stays like the Marriott Premier VISA in the US or UK. I recently read a post that it will be judged on August 2018 and not the YE of 2018 so I feel I have wasted my time.
This seem to be a disappointment at every turn to reach lifetime platinum.
