China Taobao Quick Route Platinum Status

So wife bought Alibaba's Taobao VIP card for 88rmb (equivalent to $14 USD). She just figured out she gets matched to Marriott gold status and has 120 days to stay 8 nights to attain platinum status.

This might be useful for China based folks. For me, not sure I like this as the numbers of Chinese attaining platinum status will obviously go up. With Chinese traveling to where I go, it will be harder to get upgrades etc.

Just another reminder to me that Marriott wants its programs to be mass market. Glad I'm Hyatt Globalist right now
