Hello, As a gold member for 2017 and 2018, I just wondering when is the last qualifying date for requesting for Marriott platinum challenge in 2018? I am interested in finishing the challenge in July and August, 2018 if available. Thanks!! Bo
July/August wont be a problem, however, challenges are bound by a calendar months...so keep that in mind.
Assuming for a second that you're eligible to do a status challenge (a few requirements need to be met), you just need to let Marriott Rewards know when you want to start your challenge. From the day it starts, you'll have 90 (consecutive, obviously) days to finish your challenge.
For now, it's not clear when the big merger between Marriott Rewards, Ritz-Carlton Rewards and Starwood Preferred Guest will take place. It will be somewhere in that period, according to the rumours and Marriott's intentions. For now, the status challenges are still offered and it is not announced yet if/when they will disappear and what will happen if you are in the middle of a challenge when the merger of the programs takes place. I'm pretty sure that the communitymanagers haven't even gotten a full picture on that one yet. Only months away, but still way too early to draw conclusions.
