Wow, so a person can spend the $2000 for a one-nighter and get life time PLT?
That's less money than what one has to spend per year to renew PLT.
$2000 is too pricey for me, but I am intrigued by the math though.

me too

I'm looking to DO THIS DEAL, can we get a couple other people onboard. I'll make the first purchase, how does one DO the actual referral, I don't see the information for the actual group buy on the site

does anyone know if this is only applicable for this coming weekend, for some OSCAR party?

Ok so newbie question, I don't know how hotel suite upgrades work. The main benefit here that is catching my eye is the 2 confirmed suite upgrade certificates (for stays up to 5 nights)

Does this mean that I can book the cheapest room rate that I can find and then use the suite upgrade certificate or is it like airfare upgrades that can only be used on certain fare classes?

P.S. I am seriously considering going for this so I'd be interested in a conga as well

Suite upgrades are amazing. Book the cheapest room, get upgraded to some of the best suites.
