I am pretty new to the points game, and just acquired my Gold Status.
I am thinking of signing up for the Platinum Elite Status challenge. If I am able to achieve the 16 nights by March, will I get Platinum through 2021, or just for 2020? I was told that you keep your status for the year in which you acquire it and the next, but just want to confirm. Also, I need to plan for 2 year end meetings, once I sign up for the challenge, would I be able to use the 10 elite night (from meetings) towards the platinum challenge requirement?
