Hello. I'm kind of new to Marriott rewards, so I apologize if this question has been asked before (I couldn't find an answer here or on the MR website).
Let's say I hit Gold status in July 2014. When does that expire? July 2015 (so it's good for one year), or December 2015 (expires at a predetermined end-of-year time, kind of like airline status)? Thanks!
Whatever status you earn in one year:
1. becomes almost immediately effective
2. is effective until the end of February the the 2nd year out. Eg. earn gold in July 2013 gold status for this qualificaiton would run through the end of February 2015.
Does this answer your question?
