Spending was shown at 27k ... should be pretty accurate.
Anecdotally, I think they are calculating spend based on base point earned. This should be accurate for anyone who never books more than three rooms.

I tend to book and pay for more than three rooms. I know I've spent at least $36K this year, because I have 27 elite nights from the Chase card (15 for the card and 12 for spend). I only use the card at Marriott properties, so I am pretty sure on my spend estimate.

Despite this, Marriott has calculated my spend at $12,745. As I tend to average 6-10 rooms each night, I'm guessing that they reached this figure based on maximum three rooms per night.
