Best thing to do ..... vote with your wallets

Oddly mine has not (yet) been changed to Gold... perhaps as more data is populated as my account activity is moved over as part of the merge process it will be

How long is it since you merged your accounts? The official stance is that all accounts at the moment is showing the correct current Elite Status unless your current status is lower than your LT status. MAR are still trying to reconcile the migrated and combined LT nights and years with the displayed LT status and the implied current status.

I merged my accounts Monday afternoon. Marriott (where I was previously matched to former Gold from SPG former Gold attained through my Amex Plat.. and which was incorrectly showing as new Plat) was merged into my SPG (which was correctly showing new Gold), and my SPG was at that point upgraded to new Plat.

Considering the issues I've been having with my SPG Amex, if I slip through the cracks in this area for four-five months, I'll take it.

Mine still shows (two days after merging Plat - Plat) as Platinum ..... maybe because the Amex SPG Gold was not “active” anymore .... cancelled the Amex a few month back but the Gold status stuck to the account

If you go to the rewards plus website it does state it is for Platinum Premiers,

It's been a month since the last post to this thread. Does anyone have any recent experience as to their actual status once they have combined their SPG Gold (obtained through AMEX Plat benefit) with their Marriott? I have Gold with Marriott because of Gold status match from SPG side but I almost never use my SPG account. I haven't combined my account yet so curious to know of folks' recent experience.

It was always that the 75 night level @ MR was required to get the UA Silver through RewardsPlus. So the title changed (75 night level was Platinum in legacy MR and Plat Premier in modern MR), but the nights/status requirement for the match did not.

I guess the question is... does your Marriott account current show as (new) Gold or (new) Platinum? If it was already correctly downgraded to (new) Gold, you already have the status that is currently offered through the Amex Plat benefit.

I have combined my accounts, and am new-Gold. With the Marriott and Starwood nights combined I would have Gold anyway (26 so far this year) so the card status is irrelevant.

Shame that I can't stack earned Gold, Amex Plat-granted Gold, and SPG Luxury-granted Gold to get Platinum or Platinum Premier, or at least new-Gold with the old-Gold 4pm late checkout added to it....
