After a few mishaps, my lifetime SPG lifetime Platinum kit finally arrived this week with the map showing all the places I have stayed with the chain.

Starwood Has Problems Sending Out Lifetime Platinum Kits? (Perhaps Marriott Sends Me Book Of Mormon Instead?)

9 Comments

Back in late April, I qualified for the lifetime SPG Platinum status after 10 years of Platinum status with the program and more than 500 nights. I wrote about this at the time (access here).
