Hello. I have looked in lots of places, and I do not find an answer to these questions.
1) Will Marriott be offering either the "Taste of Platinum" or "Road to Platinum" Challenge this fall (say, September through November), after the merger with SPG is (mostly) complete?
2) If so, will Platinum still require 9 stays in 90 days, as it appears to have been in the past?
3) Would my Marriott and/or SPG credit cards' "stay credit" benefit apply in any way toward the number of stays required for Platinum through the Challenge? I think not, but I would like to know for sure.
I am currently Marriott Gold. I greatly appreciate your time and assistance.
