Do all (previous program) plat premiers get 2018 ambassadors?

I've been (old program, double-secret-probation-level) Marriott Platinum Premier for the last 3 or so years, but was not part of the Marriott pilot ambassador program. I noticed today on the app that I'm now (new) Platinum Premier + Ambassador, with 110 nights + $19928 spend this year, $72 short of this year's ambassador qualification (I'll go over that as soon as two missing stays post, but they haven't posted yet). I'm pretty sure my activity last year (with Marriott) was > 100 days and $20K spend, with almost no Starwood activity, but they didn't (publicly) track spend, so I'm not absolutely sure.

So I wonder why it has me as an ambassador already this year. Is it it because all (old program) PP's were given ambassador status, or is it based on my 2017 activity?

In other words, did any (old program) PPs here NOT get 2018 ambassador status with the merger? (ed: I typo'd 2019 in the title, I meant 2018). [Fixed by moderator.]

Just wondering

I also got it for the rest of the year. I haven't tracked my total year to date spend but I am pretty sure it is much less than $20K (though still significant ~$10-12K).

A friend got 5 Star + Ambassador on the Marriott account with the Android App. So not sure what that is because it's not Plat Premier Elite

I too was grandfather into Ambassador, although at this time it's not showing my YTD spend.

Currently at 101 nights (of which 53 were roll over, so I expect that is the issue)

I can't see me reaching $20,000 spend this year in any event.

I had 88 nights in Marriott and like 30 something in SPG. It shows that I am Platinum Premier (which i was not pre-merged accounts). I would qualify as a combined LTPP with combined accounts, but it only shows 88 nights and $0 spend toward Ambassador. Oh, and none of my SPG points have transferred.

Lightbulb When can I expect to get the LTPP status?

I merged my SPG and Marriott accounts today. Now I have 783 lifetime nights and 11 platinum elite years. However, my lifetime status is stilling showing "Lifetime Platinum Elite" but not "Lifetime Platinum Premier Elite". The question is, when can I expect to get the LTPP status?

Since you are qualifying for LTPP under the combined program rules (years as platinum + nights), you can expect to be bumped to LTPP sometime in January 2019.

Crazy they can't do this now. Combined 20 years Platinum & 1100 nights. Was at 690 and 12 years before I combined accounts.

I'm sure they could do this now, but when they announced you could get LTPP this year by combining nights and years, they also said that you would be notified in January. They seem to be sticking to that plan.

My guess is they're going to do a batch job one time, and doing it in early January to ensure all of 2018 activity is considered as activity up to Dec 31st may be make-or-break for qualifying on both the nights and points. Particularly because someone who qualified under the legacy SPG account and MR account before 08/18 who didn't combine might qualify with two years of plat status within 2018 rather than one by qualifying for plat within each program this year.
