Three More Years …….. For Lifetime SPG Platinum Status


Starwood Preferred Guest members that have had Platinum status for at least 10 years (no need to be consecutive) and 500 qualified nights are awarded lifetime status (theirs or SPG’s).

Starwood Preferred Guest Lifetime Platinum Status

I started relatively late with Starwood compared to Hilton, Hyatt, IHG and Marriott, and have now been 7 years Platinum member and have 462 qualified nights.

You can learn more about the lifetime Gold and Platinum requirements here.

I haven’t really changed too much of my stay behavior, but had to get in a few stays in late 2013 to ensure that I have the Platinum status renewed for 2014 and no gap years in between. As you can see from the screenshot above, I have the nights mostly done, but need three more years.


Lifetime statuses with airlines and hotel programs can come handy. I don’t have to worry yearly about meeting the status requirements with one of the Oneworld and Star Alliance airlines as I have lifetime Platinum with American Airlines (close to 3 million lifetime miles) that maps to Oneworld Sapphire and lifetime Premier Executive Gold with United Airlines (1.2 million lifetime miles) that maps to Star Alliance Gold.

On the hotel programs, I am on track for Marriott lifetime Platinum (need 200 more nights) and the SPG one. The Hyatt’s $200,000 spend requirement is difficult for me to reach and neither Hilton or IHG have currently lifetime programs.
