So that makes me eligible for platinum,as she confirmed that already spent dollars on the old card carry over onto the Luxury card. So I took the plunge and upgraded. She also said that it takes 12 to 16 weeks to get status upgrade after the dollars have been spent. That is a long time. I am hoping that is not the case because I have two stays coming up this year at Marriott properties. Anyone know if it does really take that long? Thank you Safetravel!
Sounds like a good deal for you, assuming you don't have priority pass (PP). I am already SPG platinum (elite) and have PP from Chase, and not too incentivized to upgrade. And, hope it's a metal card
