I am about 65 nights away from lifetime gold. I have almost 2 million points. The lifetime gold will convert to lifetime platinum (a worthy cause to stretch for). I have about 30 days of travel scheduled. I do not have enough time to stay 65 nights this year, but can reach it with credit card spend by end of year if the current earning of elite nights remains at 1 night per 3000. Does anyone know how long i have before the old cards roll into the new ones. It looks like the elite nights for spend goes away.
