    If Amex Platinum Plus card gives Gold status, ypu then need 24 nights to reach marriot Platinum Elite status.

    If you then take out the Amex Bonvoy card, it comes with 15 nights booster

    Leaving 9 nights actual in hotel stays to get Platinum Elite status?

    Too good to be true?

    No – the Amex Plat gives you Gold Status but not the 30 elite nights credit on your account so you’ll only be on 15 nights with the Amex Bonvoy. The old Creation Marriott card (no longer available) gave 10 nights that stacked with the Amex Bonvoy. Otherwise, the only way to extra nights is by paid stays.

    The Amex platinum gives you gold status but doesn’t give you the 25 nights to get the status.

    If you take out the bonvoy card then you do get 15 night credits leaving 35 nights needed for platinum.

    If you’re looking to get platinum with a lower night threshold, you can occasionally message bonvoy on Twitter or Facebook and ask for a status challenge where 12 nights in 3 months gets you platinum, however, they don’t publish when this is available and you don’t get platinum until after the 12 nights.

    Bruinbrown. Didn’t know about the challenge. Is it a special offer they discreetly, and occasionally, put out?

    I might be able to do 12 nights in 3 months.

    Pretty sure it was never 12 nights for Platinum with the challenge. I did 16 when Bonvoy started, having done 18 with SPG back in 2015.

    I signed up for it back in February and the terms were to complete 12 nights within the next 3 calendar months plus the current month. I.e. sign up on the 1st Feb and you get February, March, April and May or sign up on the 28th Feb and get March, April and May. I’m not sure how often they offer it and whether it’s targeted or not. Not long after I signed up they stopped accepting applications. If you’re interested I’d suggest just messaging them on your preferred social media platform asking whether they are offering a status challenge at the moment.

    No, my mistake, I’ve just gone through my Twitter DMs and it was 16 nights for platinum not 12
