Die SPG Platinum Status Challenge hat ein Ablaufdatum und das ist Ende 2017 …

SPG hat schon länger eine Status Challenge laufen: Die SPG Status Challenge hat jetzt eine Promotion Page

Das Ziel sollte Platinum sein. Da gibt es standardisierte Upgrades in Suiten. Die Promo ist dafür absolut easy. Man meldet sich an und absolviert in drei Monaten 18 Nächte. Drei Zimmer kann man pro Nacht auf einen Account schreiben lassen.

Die Bedingungen:

“Registration: Between January 1, 2017, and December 31, 2017 (by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time), eligible SPG® members will have the opportunity to register for the SPG Gold or Platinum Status Challenge (the “Status Challenge”) by calling SPG Customer Service to register. Members must choose either the Gold Status Challenge or Platinum Status Challenge.

Offer: Members must register by December 31, 2017, and choose a consecutive three-month (3-month) earning period (the “Challenge Period”) from the options provided at time of registration. For example, if a member registers in February 2017, the Challenge Period options from which to choose are: January-March 2017, February-April 2017 or March-May 2017. Platinum Status Challenge participants must complete 18 Eligible Paid Nights at hotels and resorts that participate in the SPG program within their Challenge Period. Gold Status Challenge participants must have nine (9) Eligible Paid Nights within their Challenge Period. SPG Award Nights do not count as Eligible Paid Nights for the purpose of the Status Challenge. Only eligible paid nights consumed within the selected Status Challenge period will count towards the Status Challenge.

Eligibility: Status Challenges are not available to members who have earned SPG elite-level within the five years prior to the current year. Specifically, SPG members who earned Gold or Platinum status in or after 2012 are not eligible for the Gold Status Challenge, and SPG Members who earned Platinum in or after 2012 are not eligible for the Platinum Status Challenge. Members who have successfully completed any prior SPG status challenges may not register for this Status Challenge. Members may register and attempt to participate in the Status Challenge again if they fail to complete the Status Challenge. If a member completes the Gold Status Challenge and is successful, he or she is able to come back to register for the Platinum Status Challenge. Members may not, however, repeat a Status Challenge that they have already successfully completed. An SPG member who reaches SPG Gold or Platinum status by linking their SPG and Marriott Rewards accounts will not be eligible for the Status Challenge offer.

Earning: Members who meet all terms and conditions and successfully complete the Gold Status Challenge will be upgraded to Gold status. Upgrade to Gold status will occur within 5-7 days of the stay posting to the member’s account with the ninth (9th) Eligible Paid Night completed. Members who meet all terms and conditions and successfully complete the Platinum Status Challenge will be upgraded to Platinum status. Upgrade to Platinum status will occur within 5-7 days of the stay posting to the member’s account with the 18th Eligible Paid Night completed. Once an SPG member reaches elite membership status, the applicable benefits will commence during the member’s Status Challenge Period. The Elite Status Challenge entitles members to one full year of elite status, from one renewal period to the next. If a member is upgraded via the challenge on or before February 28th, 2017 they retain status until February 28th, 2018, the following year. If they are upgraded on or after March 1st, 2017 they retain status for the remainder of the year, all of 2018, up until February 28th, 2019.”

Im Kleingedruckten findet man das Ablaufdatum der Challenge mit Registrierung Ende 2017. Jetzt kann es natürlich sein, dass man 2018 die Status Challenge wieder auflegt und man eine Anmeldung wieder erlaubt.

Ich möchte aber einige Dinge zu bedenken geben. Marriott und SPG sind ja jetzt eine Firma. SPG Platinum entspricht über einen internen Status Match Marriott Platinum. Marriott Platinum wirft man aber nicht so easy raus. Bei SPG wird man klassisch mit 25 Stays auch SPG Platinum. Bei Marriott verlangt man 75 Nächte. Bei allen Marken erleben wir ein Hochgehen mit den Nächten bei den Top Tier Level. Das wird bei SPG wahrscheinlich auch blühen.

Wer die Status Challenge noch mitnehmen möchte, sollte sich das Zuwarten vielleicht überlegen. Gerade jetzt auch im Winter sind die Preise der SPG Hotels im Keller und Mattress Runs gut machbar.

Derzeit bekommt man einen unglaublich hohen Bonus für eine Kreditkarte. Mit Abschluss der DE American Express Platinum erhält man 60 000 Meilen. Hier bei Boardingarea kann ich euch das anbieten:
