Marriott New Program
I am Platinum Elite for Life with Marriott. Any idea on where folks such as us will end up as far as the new level is concerned?
Welcome [USER=4334]@Michael Maloney[/USER] – looks like you’ll have it pretty good! Here’s an excerpt from Ben’s post:
[I]Going forward there will be no opportunity to earn lifetime Platinum Premier or above, and lifetime Platinum members won’t receive the Choice Benefit, which includes Suite Night Awards. Furthermore, elite qualifying nights and status across all programs will be combined to calculate lifetime status.
How does this work for existing lifetime elite members?
[*][I]Lifetime SPG Gold members will become lifetime Marriott Gold members[/I]
[*][I]Lifetime SPG Platinum members will become lifetime Marriott Platinum members[/I]
[*][I]Lifetime Marriott Gold members will become lifetime Marriott Platinum members[/I]
[*][I]Lifetime Marriott Platinum members will be grandfathered as lifetime Marriott Platinum Premier members (a lifetime status that can’t be earned going forward)[/I]
