Lifetime points are missing from the profile section of the website and show as 0 in the Marriott mobile app. However, you may be able to use the work-around referenced in this blog post to see your current Lifetime Points.

You can still view your lifetime points online with the following steps:
  1. Go to www.marriott.com and login
  2. Go to https://www.marriott.com/rewards/rewards-program.mi
  3. Click "Nights"
See screenshot of what to click.

If you call Marriott they can also tell you your lifetime points balance.

http://www.marriott.com/marriott/rew...te-benefits.mi As of 20 May, this process does not work. There is no link called "Night Detail" on this page.

To check lifetime balances: (HT to txpenny)
1. Click "Night Detail".
2. Click "Learn More" (under the night total)
3. Click "Marriott Rewards Overview". At this point you're probably no longer logged in (because you've been thrown to an older version of the Marriott website), so log in again.
4. Click "Nights" under your current year's nights. -> The detail you're expecting showing LT nights and points will show up like before.


Lifetime Silver Elite:
250 qualified nights
1.2 million points

Lifetime Gold Elite
500 qualified nights
1.6 million points

Lifetime Platinum Elite
750 qualified nights
2.0 million points

To check your point and night balance, log into your account and click My Account > Account Overview > Nights.

"Elite Lifetime Status is determined by your total qualified nights stayed and points earned throughout the course of your membership including your paid nights, Elite rollover nights, meeting nights and the nights and points earned on your Marriott Rewards Credit Card."

Points used by members to buyback their previously attained Elite level will be permanently deducted from their Lifetime point balance.

If an elite's point level drops below that required for the level attained, they will drop down to the next Lifetime level until points are accumulated to get them back to the next level.

Lifetime points in addition to nights now display on your Marriott Rewards account. When logged in, click on "Nights" (the blue link below the number representing your current year nights). You'll see the detail of what comprises your current year nights as well as your Lifetime Status nights.

Can you help me with something? Using my account detail below how many nights will rollover to 2018. I have 16 nights in the works for Sept and October.

The formula is quite simple, all nights "earned" (does not include rollover from previous year) minus highest tier obtained this year. In your case that's 85 + 16 - 75 = 26 + 16 (yet to stay) = 42 rollover nights should be awarded in 2018.

Now I'm mixed up again. You're adding 16 upcoming nights to my present nights 85 for a total of 101-75 = 26

But then you added 16 +26 =42. Didn't you add those 16 nights twice?

The 16 nights that added to 85 is from your "Rewards Credit Card" nights.

if I read it correctly, icydog has 85 nights in 2017 (84 paid 1 Rewards) and hence the 29 Rollover nights were never added to the equation. If the equation added the count for all Bonus nights (45) then you will need to minus the 29 rollover nights from 2016... which is 16, the "Rewards Credit Card" nights that I mentioned above.

I found out something new. I didn't know that Credit Card nights count toward rollover nights. Cool!

If you provide your birthday and have at least Silver status, you will get 1 Elite night as well and that also rollover, as far as I know.

Any nights credited to your account, except rollover and comp'd rooms (aka casino comp) count.

Hi,

Without expecting to hit the LTP this year, I was taken by surprised I managed to hit the magic number this week as I still had 100k to go about 3 months ago when I enquired.
As an non-US base member (so no benefits from the MR credit card bonuses), am so glad to have made it this far after being loyal to the chain for the ~ last 7 years.

Will in the my travels now concentrate more on SPG hotels (before the program goes away as I find that I get much better recognition within these hotels) and working my HHonors lifetime status.

Cheers!

I managed to hit the 2,000,000 point mark on Monday, after a CC referral bonus posted and getting the bonus for following marriott on twitter. I'm still going to stay pretty much loyal to marriott, but I might now consider staying at starwood more often.

I might get the SPG amex to get the slightly better earning.

If we are talking about hotel stays and dining, then yes, slightly better is an accurate description. For everything else Amex SPG kicks a-- over Marriott Visa.

Some of us no longer travel as much as you.

Thus, prospective lifetime membership becomes a major motivator for the credit card usage, which is very lucrative for Marriott.

If i transfer points from my spouse's account into mine will those points count towards my lifetime status? If they do, it will help me attain lifetime gold status.

Yes! Part of the reason my wife is at 1.6 million points is that I am at -360k due to the transfers to her account!

Yes, but they will also reduce your spouse's lifetime total. You can transfer up to 50,000 points a year for no fee.

I'd put an * after that 50K as Marriott has allowed some very easy ways to to extend well beyond that "limit".
