Yes, 2015 was used so who knows if that would be 2016 or 2017.
Fast track to gold? LOL; that's insulting. They've given out Gold like candy. And the 'normal' requirements for gold are only 20 stays or 40 nights or 75K base points. Their challenge saves a little time, but not much.

So they've stated on Twitter that they're giving HHonors Diamond to Hyatt Diamond and Marriott Plat but didn't give it to a SPG Plat? Bizarre.

What is your HHonors history?

So far, only one confirmed match - Miles to memories. I realize it was a holiday weekend but there should have been more than one confirmed match by now.

I submitted my information Wednesday evening, including a copy of my SPG Plat status page (with LT Gold and requirments for Plat through Feb 2017 met) and the only response I've gotten is the automated response on Thursday AM. I just checked my HHonors status and no update.
