Lifetime the lazy way?

If a person was to hold the AMEX Platinum card for 7+ years and the AMEX Marriott Bonvoy card for 27 years would you get lifetime gold without ever stepping in a Marriott hotel?13th September 2023 at 17:57Nate1309
Likewise Platinum for 5+ and Bonvoy for 17 years for lifetime Silver?13th September 2023 at 21:16Blair Waldorf Salad
Amex Platinum gifts you Gold status but no nights.13th September 2023 at 21:17Blair Waldorf Salad
Oh…I see what you’re getting at. Why on earth would anyone hold the Bonvoy card at a fee per year but never stay at Marriott properties?14th September 2023 at 10:30Nate1309
This was worst case scenario. Adding in even a few stays a year would change the maths but I was just wondering could it be done.15th September 2023 at 21:01MF176
Imagine banking on this and AMEX / Bonvoy changing the rules in 25 years time 😂17th September 2023 at 20:07RobHfP Staff
Yes, it can be done …. is the answer.
I’m on 410 nights so should hit 600 for Lifetime Plat within 5 years with help from the credit card nights.17th September 2023 at 21:28Jon9
Amex bonvoy gives you gold status if you spend more than £15,000 a year on the credit card; so I don’t think any need for the Amex platinum card as well in your example.18th September 2023 at 22:48Nate1309
@jon9 that’s good for people not directing spend elsewhere 👍
