Question: I would like to confirm last year when people combined their Marriott and SPG Accounts, the total Elite years for both reward programs were calculated together to get the overall lifetime years


Example: 9 Platinum years with Marriott and 2 #Platinum years with SPG, should once combined total 10 years. Can someone confirm and or have it in writing somewhere? I’m being told if it was during the same years (Like 2017) it doesn’t count. Which is not what I was initially informed.


I have seen a few similar topics, but can't find the answer.
