new to the program and would like to know if the "Nnights Stayed" that are used to determine your rating zero out on January 1st. If you are close (i.e. 40 plus nights) and recieved them all in the last few months, is there anything I can do to get bumped to Gold?
Nights start accruing at the first of the year, and your balance will start reflecting the new total again sometime after that.
Note that Rollover nights are a benefit that is in effect: any nights posted in excess of the Elite level qualification level will be added to your account in 2011. Thus, if you had 40 nights, you would start the year with 30 (Silver requires 10, and you'd rollover the extra nights.)
