Spoiler alert! I'm only on Season 4. Although I figured that Rachel Zane would probably be leaving at some time

So not announcing something is spoiling the announcement? And inviting people to an announcement spoils an announcement.

I guess Apple has already ruined their iPhone XI announcement by not announcing it. And they'll absolutely destroy it by actually inviting people to an announcement.

Overall for the program going forward this works out to being about as good as we might have hoped for
Sue them!!! Sue them for everything they've got!!!!

(but, fwiw, you still have to the end of the year to meet the LT requirements you are so worried about, just as they said - "You can also qualify via the existing criteria through December 31, 2018.")

Aggregating stays across programs mid-year makes it easier to attain status. Another reason to sue!

I'm not suggesting that.

I'm just saying that somebody was incorrectly blaming bloggers for "fanfare" as if Marriott made no effort to make a big deal of their presentation.

Well fair warning has been given with the status quo pretty much staying until the end of the year. However any interested class action parties should contact Mr. M Cohen Esq. He can be quite generous in the out of pocket costs he covers and is a real fixer. Mainly based out of NYC & Washington - note contrary to rumours he does not work out of the Czech Republic.

I would take the money you would spend on legal fees and use it for Waldorf Astorias , Conrads, Park Hyatts, and Fairmont - it will be a liberating experience

And if the OP does this on the sooner rather than later side, the outcome will likely be pretty certain

Can anybody suggest a Good Class Action Attorney should something nasty happen.

Uncle Dude : 16 Stays away from Lifetime Platinum and somewhat concerned
