Getting to Platinum by December 31 - can I do it?

I should be at 46 qualifying nights as soon as a 3 night stay this week posts.  I don't have any other travel planned.  But I do have 2 certificates for "up to 35,000 points" stay.  These won't qualify for Double Elite Night Credit.  So, if I were able to use them by the end of the month, I would be 2 nights short.  Is it worth booking a night on my own dime at a hotel near home that qualifies for Double Elite?  Any other suggestions on how I can get to 50 nights and Platinum in the next 18 days?
