I recently made it to Gold Elite status. How long until it expires?
Your Gold status will last the rest of 2016, all of 2017 and until February 1, 2018, unless you reach Platinum this year then Platinum status will remain for the same time frame.
Welcome to the community, and congrats on making Gold status! IAHFLYR's response is correct, you will have it until 2018 unless you reach Platinum, then you would have Platinum status until 2018.
