    Me too!

     

    On pins and needles wondering about the changes and how they effect me.

    why pins and needles???  they would never take away what you already have earned.

    Greetings, All!  OK - I'm about to spill ONE new component of the Lifetime criteria change.  Just one.  There will be other changes as well, but I will not comment on them.  And please note that there is nowhere (e.g., website) to go for further information.  As a matter fact, this will not be released until January, so it's a total scoop for our Insider pals!  Before the beans are spilled, let me help Gem off her pin cushion -- no, we would never take back something a member has already earned.

     

    OK - who's got the drum roll? The current criteria of a minimum number of years at a specific level will be going away.  Said another way, nights and points will be the required milestones.  Nope - I won't tell you how many...you'll have to wait.

     

    I assume this will be leaked on FlyerTalk, so one more comment about additional info - neither the Marriott Concierge or our Guest Services team has any information about this, so please don't press them because they truly do not know anything.

     

    Love it or hate it, you heard it here first!  Michelle

    Just as I thought, all the time I had to wait is now out the window.

    Thanks for the inside scoop!  For most of us it's not the years of service anyway, it's more the nights that we are lacking.  I imagine that there would be stated benefits as well to each Lifetime level (SILVER, GOLD and Platinum).

    Thanks....I'm sure there are a few members that will love this news. I'm waiting for the part about Philly area members get triple benefits and can fly on the Marriott corporate plane for pleasure trips twice per year.

    michellel,

     

    To quote the late, great "Louis Armstrong".  "I just want to be there, When Saints (LP's), come marching in"!

     

    XXXX,  "I want to be in that number"!

    Sure about that Jerry? As a lifer yourself, any change has the potential for diluting the benefits. This is not an announcement I'm looking forward to.

     

    How would you like to check in and be told the (new, enhanced) Plat that checked in 10 minutes ago got the last upgrade?

    shoeman,

     

    I am a worrier!

     

    and if there is nothing to worry about, I will probably worry about nothing to worry about.

     

    Anyways, I will feel better when I see it in print on the web site.  Have never liked undocumented agreements.

    Mikiegfla,

     

    So you have enough nights but not enough years?

    Mikiegfla,

     

    Usually its Platinum Premiers that Platinums are queued behind.

     

    This is annoying, as when I was 200+ days a year in hotels there was no Platinum Premier status, so I missed out on my opportunity and am now queued behind them

    I'm already a Lifer, but I earned every bit of it by being constantly on the road.

     

    I had to wait for the right amount of years and don't like it when others get a free pass.
