I did, and while I am "thrilled" to have platinum premier status (whatever that means)...it means for whatever reasons it only rolled over 17 nights vs. the 75 it should have rolled over meaning I'd have platinum already for next year. So now I wonder what happnes if I don't make the 75 nights next year.....do I then lose my platinum status??
Can't say if they will keep you at Platinum, I hope they do based on your track record.
You asked what Platinum Premier means: in three conversations this week with them at the PP desk they have thanked me for being among the most loyal customer, which is something new. That's a small perk but a nice one.
What happened is the "new Policy"
for rollover. They now take your previous rollover plus the 75 to maintain your status-I called yesterday but was told that is the way it will be .They are however offering to keep your status at platinum next year if you do not make "number" I also understand they are getting bombarded on this.Quite frankly, if they did not expect that to happen,they must be delusional.
If they had explained it or at least prepared us for it with some notiice,I would think the impact would be less then it is now.
At the end of 2009 I rolled 65 nights into 2010.During 2010
I added 138 for a total of 203.
The MR agent told me they have changed the program moving forward for rollover .
They took the 65 from 2009 plus 75 of the 138 earned in 2010 to maintain my platinum status.It is no longer cumlative .Your rollover is really only the amount you earn above the magic number in any given year.
The formula outlined by PointsRmylife is apparently correct----------
My 2010 "Nights this Year" were 276.
Minus my 2009 rollover nights of 95.
Minus premier platinum 100 nights per year qualification as outlined in Ed French's May 2009 letter and email.
This equals my 2010/2011 rollover of 81 nights.
