members.marriott.com/benefits has been UPDATED, changing the criteria for being grandfathered into LTPP!
SPG members with 750+ nights & 10+ years at Platinum will NOW ALSO be grandfathered into LTPP!
Also, Marriott Members with 750+ nights & 10+ years at Platinum who have less than 2,000,000 points will NOW ALSO be grandfathered into LTPP!
And both SPG & Marriott members can still qualify by end-year 2018 under legacy requirements as well to be grandfathered into LTPP!
See excerpt below:
OTE: Members that reach 750 nights and 10 years at Platinum by December 31, 2018 will be grandfathered into Lifetime Platinum Premier Elite status (notified January 2019). In addition, members that achieve Marriott Rewards Lifetime Platinum under the legacy requirements by year end will also be grandfathered into Lifetime Platinum Premier Elite status. And, don’t forget that we’ll combine Lifetime activity across both Rewards and SPG toward qualification when members combine accounts in August. Beginning in 2019, qualification into Lifetime Platinum Premier Elite status will not be available. See FAQs for details.
