Hello Insiders. I need 7 more nights to reach 50 nights for 2019. By clever planning (haha) I will obtain those 7 nights by Dec. 31, 2019, when I check out of my last Marriott hotel for the year. Obviously, I will not pay for those nights until sometime in Jan. 2020 when I receive my credit card bill. Hence my questions:
Will I satisfy the requirements for Platinum this year?
Will my Platinum status commence on Jan. 1, 2020 and run until Dec. 31, 2020 -- or will it commence at some later date?
Thanks in advance for any clarification!!
