Status Challenges

Note from your Community Managers:  For all inquires and requests regarding Status Challenges, please refer to the following thread:

Status Challenges: What are they and how do I enroll?



I'm new to the forum and notice that everyone (especially the moderators) seems to be very helpful. 

 

I have 10 stays (16 nights) posted to my account, almost all within the past 90 days, and there are 2 stays (4 nights) that are not yet posted.  Also, I have 2 more stays (4 nights) scheduled over the next 2 weeks.

 

I have just learned about the status challenges, I had no idea they existed. Most of the people I travel with have Gold or Platinum status and get all the perks while I get left out...lol...   I'm wondering if there is anyway to retroactively do a challenge or some way to ensure gold status for next year?  I expect to have a very similar schedule next year accumulating about 12-14 stays (20-25) from 9/1 to 12/1 and then a few random stays throughout the rest of the year. 

 

Thank you for any input or insight to how all this works.

    Welcome to the Insiders Community, Zebra75!  Thanks for you kind words, too!  This is a great forum to talk about all things travel! Especially for sharing your travel recommendations and experiences.  One of the perks of being an Insider, is you gain the 'inside scoop' on the Rewards Program, like above.  If you ever have any questions or comments, please feel to reach out to me or my fellow moderators, deannad and lindseyh.  We're always here to help.   I've gone ahead and included a link to our 'Getting Started Guide' just in case you'd like to take a look. 

    Getting Started Guide

     

    We can definitely get you enrolled in a Gold Status Challenge and provide the details for you.  Just shoot me a private message with your Rewards number.  Also, it can take up to 10 days for a stay to post to your account, and sometimes a little bit longer if it is an international stay.  However, if they are older than 10 days, please send the details, property and dates, and I'll have our team look into these as well.

     

    Again, welcome to Insiders, looking forward to hearing more from you!

      Thank you for the reply.  I think I sent you a DM.  Acted wierd though, so not sure if it sent.

        Sometimes it takes a little bit for new members to be able to send private messages.  I haven't gotten it yet, would you mind trying again?

          Hi Carat,

           

          I was wondering about getting a status challenge as well. I'm currently Silver (which I'm hoping will still be the case when my next vacation starts), but I'll gladly try for Gold if it's within reach!

          Can you tell me more and give an idea of how many stays I'd need in a certain time period?

          I tried to send you a DM but a red banner pop-up shows each time I press send
