Marriott Rewards offers lifetime Silver, Gold or Platinum status for members that have hit certain number of nights and points earned regardless of the duration of their membership.
Marriott Rewards lowered the number of points earned required and removed the requirement of having had membership for 12 years to get the lifetime status in early 2013 (read more here).
You can access Marriott Rewards web page for lifetime status here.
Previously, Marriott only tracked the number of qualified nights online but you had to call in to get the total number of points earned from all sources during the course of your membership. Marriott has now made this available online for those that have their account set up as Marriott Rewards one instead of Ritz-Carlton Rewards.
Ritz-Carlton Rewards Lifetime Status (Number Of Points Earned Missing)
Marriott Rewards Lifetime Status (With Both Nights And Points Showing)
To get this info, you first must click the My Account > Account Overview and then click 2014 Nights Detail and you will then see a screen similar to the one above that I got from a reader.
If your account is set up as Ritz-Carlton one, you can still see the number of total nights, but the number of points earned is missing. The one with the 536 nights is from my Ritz-Carlton Rewards account (on my way to the lifetime Platinum status slowly but steadily).
You can contact Ritz-Carlton Rewards membership services using the online form and they will get back to very fast with the number of points earned during your membership.
It is good that they now have the lifetime number of points earned visible online as well, although they have always provided this info promptly by emailing or calling the rewards customer service.
I should have reached by now the number of base points required for the lifetime Gold (the number of nights is already greater than the required 500) and on my way to the lifetime Platinum hopefully by the end of this decade.
