My crazy 2018 loyalty goal

I’ve learned over the years that goals are integral for me. They help me to push myself to always improve. I set some to challenge my abilities, and some are just fun. My crazy 2018 loyalty goal is one that covers the latter two categories. It will take ingenuity, but its a fun one to have.

My Crazy 2018 Loyalty Goal

I’ve long talked about Lifetime Status with any loyalty program. In fact I posed the Lifetime Hotel Status Conundrum last year when my friend Ed attained lifetime Hyatt Globalist status. Well, with all the changes happening to Marriott and SPG, I feel like I should push for lifetime status now before even more changes. Here’s where I stand at present:

  1. I just transferred 84k pts from my wife’s Marriott acct to mine and they tallied into my lifetime status tracker. You should be able to push 50k (typical annual limit) over from your wife’s acct if that helps.

  2. Look at it this way – you are only 262,410 away from LT Gold – which is what counts for Lounge access. Little difference when you reach Platinum. The LT Plat will eventually come – so just shot for LT Gold and wait.
