You get more rollover nights for the next year which will help you to rearchive platinum or gold.
If I can find the post by bejacob, I'll edit this and post in on here. It's about rollover nights. Unless he post it first!
Ok I ended up finding this post with a helpful answer from brightlybob
Exactly - Rolling 25 over to next year makes it that much easier to hit status next year AND drives you to Lifetime Status that much quicker - not to mention all the points you will be piling up.
I hit a high of 125 one year, so platinum the next year, in conjunction with the nights credit from the credit card was extremely easy. I may have hit it in Jan or Feb that year.
seachi, I don't think we will ever truly know what the qualifications are for PP. Trust me, I have tried. You will hear things like Top 1% of Platinum or Top 3%, Then you will hear it takes certain number of nights vs.dollars spent. I've seen people state that they had over 200 nights and none of those on Credit Card points and still didn't get it. I hit PP in 2015 with 121 nights. Go Figure!!!!
Yes, I must admit I'm doing that at the moment. Any extra nights over 75 come unt twice towards lifetime and helps me as whilst I made the 2 million points a couple of years ago, its the nights I struggle with. The first half of the year was low travel, not including my honeymoon redemption I managed only 10 nights. However the second half has been much higher at 40 paid nights and all that has coincided with the double nights promo meaning with my 15 redemption nights and 10 credit card I'll end the year at the credited at 115 nights, rolling over 40 nights. Effectively the double nights promo works out at triple nights credit since the 40 doubled nights all get counted again due to rollover. Not that I need 'em for rollovers, all these extra nights will mean I finally join IAHFLYR erc and nationwide at the lifetime table...
