Sorry first time poster. I have read other discussions and have also tried to DM some of the moderators but for some reason, my DM's are not going through.
I would like to sign up for the Taste of Platinum Challenge. I am currently Gold. I can send my ID via a DM or email.
Welcome to Insiders, vikramg! You should be all set to post away now, apologies for the delay! When it comes to the "Taste of" challenges, members must be solicited with the offer to participate. However, we do offer status challenges, which are very similar. For more information on these challenges, please check of the following link: Status Challenges: What are they and how do I enroll?
I've also reached out via direct message to begin the status challenge enrollment.
Welcome to Insiders lisawutong! When it comes to these challenges, your progress will not be tracking in your online account. However, if at any time you are curious as to where you stand, reach out to one of the Community Managers here on the forum. We'd be happy to take a look for you. Also, if you would like, we can always take a look to confirm you have been enrolled in this challenge. Just pass along your Rewards number to either myself or one of the other Community Managers.
Hi Cara! Thank you for confirming that I have signed up for the platinum challenge. I have another question for ya - what is the difference between the Taste of Platinum Challenge and the Platinum Elite challenge? I am trying to figure out my schedule to hopefully achieve Platinum Elite status as soon as possible
This is a great question, wjlin1. In order to participate in the Taste of Challenges, members must be solicited with an offer. Also, members are only eligible to participate in one status furthering challenge per 12 months. Hope this helps but please feel free to reach out should any additional questions arise.
Hi kulls. I have added in your request am awaiting word of your eligibility. As soon as I have additional details, I will be sure to share them via the direct message. Apologies for the delay!
If I already have bookings that I have made for later in February, and then I enroll in the Platinum Status Challenge on 1st Feb. then would these stays in Feb. count towards meeting the challenge. That is, do both bookings and stays have to be performed after enrolling in challenge or can bookings be made before enrolling in challenge as long as stays are for after the enrollment in challenge date.
Bookings Made: 01/21/2017
Stays between: 02/05/2017 - 02/28/2017
Enrollment in challenge on: 02/01/2017
Would the above scenario stay nights count towards meeting challenge requirements?
This is a great question, deep_1986! As long as your complete qualifying stays during your given challenge period, when you booked them does not come into play.
Welcome to Insiders sumdude3! The first step in the Status Challenge process is checking your eligibility and to get started, I've reached out via direct message.
Sounds good, jlee153! I have reached out via direct message to begin the enrollment process.
I called marriott reward center today to enroll a platinum challenge. I think I've enrolled for "road to" version of platinum challenge but I'm not sure about it. I tried to DM to one of community managers to confirm my enrollment but DM seems not working for me. Could one of managers send me a DM to me such that I could reply to ask the questions related to my challenge?
Sounds like a challenge would be beneficial for you, drlm! I have reached out via direct message to being the enrollment process.
I am interested in the platinum challenge. If you could provide any more information about signing up that would be great.
I've sent you a a private message regarding your inquiry.
deannad I just checked out off my last stay for my Platinum Challenge. I was wondering how long it would take for the status to be updated. Have a big stay this weekend in DC, and was hoping to be Platinum before I go.
Thanks for any information you can give
Our team has advised that at this time, 7 stays have been posted to your account. As soon as the 9th stay posts to your account, the upgrade to Platinum Elite will occur.
Hi carat, I tried direct messaging you but it won't let me. I'm currently enrolled in a Platinum Challenge and I was wondering if you could tell me how many stays I have achieved towards the 9 needed. Could you please reach out to me via DM and I can send you my Marriott #? Thanks!
Hi majikow, I can definitely help and have reached out via direct message.
I currently have Gold status which I achieved a year ago this month through a Gold challenge. I was able to achieve the # of nights required for Gold status and maintain it into 2017. My upcoming reservations beginning in early April through June will far exceed the requirements for the Platinum challenge, am I eligible for the Platinum challenge or Taste of Platinum? If so, when should I register to insure that all of my stays qualify? Thank you ahead of time for your help.
I would like to sign up as well for a Platinum Challenge (or its equivalent). I am currently a Marriott Rewards Gold Elite member and will be graduating from nursing school soon! Woohoo! I.O.W: lots of travel for graduation, relaxation, and interviews in these next 3 months.
Please let me know what I can do to initiate this process. Appreciate the help! Thanks in advance!
Greetings. I have been a Marriott member for several years and have been Platinum for most of it. I did not realize until my status decreased to Gold and I inquired as to why the change that I discovered I had been in the Taste of Platinum Challenge and it expired. Is there anyway to continue the challenge or to be enrolled again in it? It has been great, my wife and family have loved staying at Marriotts around the world and really want to continue with Marriott at this level.
Hello! I am interested in completing the Platinum challenge as well. I am in the military and would like to focus my travel stays at your establishments. I am already gold and will be staying in hotels much more frequently due to relocation and job change. Please let me know what I need to do!
