Lifetime SPG Platinum – six years too short

I logged into this morning to find that I have crossed the 500 night threshold necessary to obtain lifetime SPG Platinum.  Unfortunately since I have met the requirement in just 4 years, (my first ever SPG stay was in late 2008) I have a solid 6 years of Platinum status to go to meet the second criterion of SPG Platinum which is 10 years at Platinum status.


At least I don’t have to sleep in a hotel tonight.

Ugh…I probably stay too many nights in hotels…..

  1. I racked up close to 280 nights in 2 years..sad that I still need to have status for another 3 years in order to qualify for Lifetime Gold.. sigh..!!

  2. @aussie – Primarily. I also try to maintain Hyatt Diamond on stays each year. The big reason I continue to give SPG the majority of my business is the high percentage of complimentary suite upgrades on award stays (when I want a suite upgrade most).
