In my experience this is exactly the type of issue that, when elevated at SPG , has been handled both quickly and very generously. I'm wondering if you got anything extra as a result of all the...

My point was that even if I actually missed the 25 mark, it was;
a) Only by 1, hence my self-entitled request for a Platinum Exception, and-
b) Due to the SPG site showing me an incorrect count of...

They sent me a copy of the master statement for 2014 which only shows 24 stays. However, the SPG account profile showed me 8 remaining to qualify for platinum status. I am 100% certain of this. I...
