I got the CSR at the Platinum desk to email me the terms and conditions today. She said that award stays prior to October 12th count towards the promotion, but award stays afterwards do not. :-(. When I read the terms and conditions (included below) it seems to me as if redemption stays would count if you registered for the promotion before October 12th. These are the terms and conditions that she sent to me:

Platinum Elite Status Challenge Terms & Conditions:
- This promotion is for existing members of the Marriott Rewards, The Ritz-Carlton Rewards and SPG members - Registration is required - Existing Marriott Rewards, The Ritz-Carlton Rewards and SPG members with base membership, Silver Elite or Gold Elite status are eligible for this promotion; members at Platinum Elite tier are ineligible for this offer. - Upon making 16 qualifying paid nights within 90 days of date of registration, participant will receive Marriott Rewards, The Ritz-Carlton Rewards or SPG Platinum Elite status for up to one year, based on their loyalty program affiliation. After the first year, Platinum Elite status will be retained by staying the required number of qualifying nights under the terms of the Marriott Rewards, The RitzCarlton Rewards and the SPG programs. - Paid nights at a qualifying rate count towards the promotion. Nights spent while redeeming an award are ineligible and do not count towards the promotion. - The batch process for redemption stays for all who registered prior to October 12th will occur on a monthly basis. - If member does not make 16 qualifying paid nights within 90 days of their date of registration, member will be changed to the membership level which corresponds to number of nights stayed: Member tier for 0-9 nights stayed, Silver Elite tier for 1024 nights stayed and Gold Elite tier for 25 – 49 nights stayed. - Nights stayed prior to enrollment are not eligible for this offer. - A 'stay' is defined as consecutive nights spent at the same hotel, regardless of check-in/check-out activity. - Credit toward this promotion is given for night stays with participating Marriott Rewards, The Ritz-Carlton Rewards and SPG hotels which occur within the earning period.
