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 Ė 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.

My post was an observation not a complaint. I donít worry myself over little things like lifetime points.Iíve had ĎGoldí status for most of the 25+ years Iíve been in the program. So what if I donít have 1.6 million lifetime points? I expect that sometime prior to my 30 year anniversary Iíll cross that threshold.Until then I have the next best thing. ĎGoldí status by way of a FF program that I have lifetime status with. PS: I like the experiences I have when staying with Marriott and I enjoy the perks from the Rewards Program.

No worries, I did not take it as a complaint. Everyone gets to set their own priorities.

As for your LT point total, if you're approaching 30 years, you might be surprised how close to Plat level (at least in points) you might be today. I never felt like I spent that much, but crossed the $2M mark some time ago.

I wouldn't bet my farm on Twitter.

Maybe right, maybe wrong, not definitive.

Basically an excellent rule of thumb for all social media.

Huge discussion in this thread.

Official announcement Ė See how our three loyalty programs will become one in August

Still waiting for Starwood Lurker to confirm.

This is a copy/paste of content from Starwood Lurker, who in my days as SPG Platinum has usually been right on the ball. It's pretty clear the three scenarios that get you into Lifetime Platinum Premier Elite. It's going to really bug me when I might end up with 800+ nights in SPG+MR, but I have a feeling I'll be at 8 or 9 years of Platinum status so no PP for me!

Q: So do members get grandfathered into LTPPE status one of three ways?

1. Legacy MR members who earn Lifetime Platinum status in the MR program on or prior to 7/31/18 will be grandfathered into the new LTPP status.

A: MR/RCR members who have already earned Lifetime Platinum Elite Status will be grandfathered into Lifetime Platinum Premier Elite status in August.

2. Legacy SPG members who have 750 nights and 10 years platinum in the SPG program on or prior to 12/31/18 will be grandfathered into the new LTPP status.

A: Legacy SPG members OR Legacy MR/RCR members who have 750 nigths and 10 years of Platinum Status prior to 12/31/18 will be grandfathered into the new Lifetime Platinum Premier Elite Status.


3. Combined MR/SPG members who have 750 nights and 10 years platinum in the combined program on or prior to 12/31/18 will be grandfathered into the new LTPP status.

A: When members merge their accounts MR/SPG members who have 750 nights and 10 years platinum in the new program on or prior to 12/31/18 will be grandfathered into Lifetime Platinum Premier Elite Status. (This will be the only year members can earn into this status)

I'm sure this won't stop the debate, complaints, petitions or outrage, but it seems pretty clear to me.

IMHO, since we're talking about lifetime Platinum Premier, the requirement of ten years of Platinum status seems reasonable. YMMV.

Disappointing.

Time will tell.

No, only about 300.

Fortunately I have the Chase Marriott Rewards Visa card that earns one night per $3,000 spent (as does my wife) plus 15 nights per year.

So now I will need to spend $105K per year, less whatever number of nights I stay, in about six more years -- rather than spending whatever I normally spend for however long it takes me to get there.

While 600 is an increase from 500, it is less than 750. So we will be able to get to work on my wife's Lifetime Platinum Elite status that much sooner.

Too bad my kids will not be able to get that same nights-earning credit card. It was a good program all around.

What I find interesting about this is, for legacy MR members, status is based upon points only before 7/31, thereafter LTPP is only achievable by nights and years - and I don't think that's correct.

That’s incorrect. Per the FAQ:

CAN I EARN LIFETIME STATUS UNDER THE LEGACY REQUIREMENTS (ACTIVE PRIOR TO AUGUST 2018) FOR LIFETIME ELITE STATUS IN MARRIOTT REWARDS, RITZ-CARLTON REWARDS OR SPG? IF SO, WHEN WILL I BE NOTIFIED OF MY LIFETIME ELITE STATUS?

Yes, in addition to earning based on the new criteria, members can earn Lifetime Elite Status under the legacy requirements through the end of 2018. If Lifetime status is achieved by legacy requirements, between August and December 31, 2018 you will receive notice of your updated Lifetime Elite status in January 2019. If Lifetime status is achieved based on the new criteria, you will be notified both in August 2018 as well as any time it is achieved through the end of the year.

Anyone able to see their lifetime point total? It seems to have vanished from the web site, and the app is showing 0.

Click "Nights" on this page and it should show: https://www.marriott.com/rewards/rewards-program.mi

They seemed to have removed points from both that screen and the app (shows zero). Anyone know if there is a way to find out your LT points?

I'm a bit short on points to make LT gold (plat in the new program?), would like to make a push to do so if i can.
