It is the time of the year when programs that use calendar year for elite qualification will soon start resetting their counters for 2019!
It makes sense to take a screenshot of account statuses at the end of the year and make a quick “audit” that all the stays and flights have posted and get those claims in for activities that haven’t.
It would also make sense to reflect how satisfied you are with the programs that you participate in and exit those that you are not.
The 2018 has been quite a roller coaster with Marriott Rewards and SPG program merger that took a wrong turn on August 18th. Let’s hope that they can get their house finally in order during 2019.
