Things to do before August 1st

Two separate questions :

1. Does it make any sense to purchase a new travel package before August 1. Or would it be better to use the 270,000 for individual stays.

2. Any reason to complete my 75 nights before August 1.

appreciate any help.

1. Wait till Marriott makes changes to all the category hotels after Aug 1st.

2. Unless you can get lifetime status

1 . There's no way to accurately answer such a generic question.

2. Assuming you mean to achieve MR PLT status in 2018 - no. There may be other reasons, but "my 75 nights" doesn't give much to go on.

1. Read the thread on Travel Packages.

There is speculation currently whether all unused certificates will be cancelled on 1 August and the points equivalent returned to your account. (which means you'd end up with really cheap miles)

2. You definitely have all year to do 75 nights, with SPG nights added on. Even Lifetime calculations are based on all of 2018.
