You have to manually initiate the combination of accounts here when it becomes available.

I'm a Life Plat, and my status currently shows as Plat. I don't have an stays until next week, so I will give it until the middle of this week before calling in.

With 110 nights* in 2018 i was granted Plat Premier + Ambassador.
This is likely a bug which i hope would be sorted out soon given that my spend was no where near 20,000.


*Fun fact: All nights were from rewarding events.

​​​​​​Same here. I'm a bit confused as if the system were solely counting actual stays, disregarding any challenge status, I would show as gold.

By keeping you at Platinum, it actually IS essentially disregarding your challenge status. It sees you as Gold in the old system. I really hope this is a bug because I wouldn't have stayed at Marriott if it weren't for the Plat challenge.

See their official site table for the new status conversion:

We both got Platinum under old Marriott and should be Platinum Premier Elite.

Given my background in IT, do give at least a week for them to sort out all these teething issues. This is like performing brain surgery on a patient that is fully conscious.

I have now two Marriott Plat accounts Earned SPG Gold (26 nights) and subsequent MR Gold (30 nights on that side)

Now by the time they get combined I'll pass 75 for PP - hopefully it goes well

Maybe i should go book a room now and then ring up my "ambassador"
Funny, yours says Jan 2020, mine says Jan 2019. Any ideas?

Just discovered I was lifetime (infinity sign) platinum,never really paid attention
Guess that’s why I don’t have date in mine
i was gold at Marriott probably from gold from SPG (timeshares) or from lifetime god at United due to attaining Million miles
Hmmmm, maybe I’ll stay platinum in 2019 and still get lounge access
Need to read some more about merger benefits

Did that and have the blue logo app but still showing as Platinum not PP. Not a major issue I guess but I will be checking out of a Marriott in a few days after a week long stay so the extra points would have been nice. I'll be on 74 nights for this year then anyway so almost qualify afresh

The people who got comped status from SPG via credit cards definitely seem to be getting the best of it at the moment!

Maybe David Flueck will come out and do a mea culpa and tell us that only Marriott Plats without LT status should have any cause for concern.
