If the OP does 12 more one night stays, that gets PlatMinus with 49 nights, where one more night would mean Plat50 and 10 SNAs. I would focus on nights rather than stays.

However, if OP is five years (at least) from Liftime Plat(Minus), I'm not sure it's wise to assume that the program will continue for five more years, especially given the discussion about Starwood being sold/merged into another hotel chain.
