Okay, anyone who has known me for the last twenty years knows I have been a loyal SPG member with 14 years of Platinum status, but when the loyalty plan merged with Marriott I only had 482 nights, enough for lifetime gold but not lifetime platinum (you needed 10 years of Platinum and 500 nights). I was so sad that I actually stopped going to Sheratons because I was told that the club lounge was only for Platinum’s and I was now just a lifetime gold.
Imagine my surprise when I opened my account and found that I was made lifetime Platinum Elite in the new world order (this might just be the gold lifetime equivalent, but don’t burst my bubble). So there is a Titanium and Ambassador ahead of me, but at least now I don’t have to fight for 25 stays a year anymore (and now 50 nights). A little good news was welcome. Thank you Bonvoy!
I hope the rest of you point counters had similar successes in your respective tiers. Scott Messing, Eric Larsen, Josh Ford, Michael Edward,Amjed Saffarini, Josh Levenson, Edward P. Chen, Sarah Kim, Maximillian Yang, George Hsin – also I understand that there is a 1 to 3 conversion between SPG to Bonvoy on points so that 208K is not that many points – I haven’t had to travel as much in the past few years. BTW I had taken a screenshot but it became a giant picture on FB that was obnoxious, so I took it off. And sorry to all of you who have rolled your eyes at this post, it was strangely important to me.
Erin Stewart Chen This made me super happy. The number of times that we’ve rushed at the end of the year to fit in that one last stay!
