I've been (old program, double-secret-probation-level) Marriott Platinum Premier for the last 3 or so years, but was not part of the Marriott pilot ambassador program. I noticed today on the app that...

So, in other words, you have no idea whether my previous year's activity counts (which was my question), but you're sure that whatever the answer is, I should count myself as very fortunate.

I just checked the various Marriott account web sites. I was PP in 2017, and had similar patterns as last year so would expect to be PP in 2018 (but who knows).

Spring 2018 Megabonus leaked?

EDIT: Never mind, I see this has been discussed in the 2017 thread. Looks like this is not a "leak", it's just that I can't register.

While using the iOS app this morning, I noticed a link to...

No, unless you've been promoted to a higher status, you keep your previous year's status until March. So the fact that you currently show Platinum doesn't tell you one way or the other (assuming you...

Rollover nights definitely count toward the LT total.

It seems to take a week or two after Jan 1 before they get calculated. I think in 2016 my rollover nights posted on Jan 10.

Also got one, as a select exec.

This one expires in 1 year, rather than 6 months as the 3000 point earned upgrades now do.

Your profile says you're Plat Premier. My understanding is that for PP, the rollover threshold is 100, or has been in recent years.
