    I just started a Diamond trial today (2/7), and in my account I see that the 4 suite upgrade awards expire at the end of the month on 2/28/13. My understanding is that awards are issued March 1 and valid through Feb 28 of the following year. So does that mean that I will get 4 new upgrade awards next month, or will I just have the current 4 until the end of February? Not trying to be greedy, but just trying to figure out if I'll need to quickly find a way to apply those upgrades. I've applied 2 to upcoming stays in March, but don't have anything planned beyond that at the moment.
    Thanks in advance!

    If you meet the trial and become Diamond you will sure get another set of upgrades. However as your trial period crosses over the date line, you might get another set anyway (not 2 sets of course, just another one) - though I am not sure about that.

    What are the trial parameters? How many nights and within what time period do you have to meet these requirements?

    How did you request Diamond?

    USE THEM NOW!!! Book 4 refundable/changeable stays and use the suite upgrades ... you can change later to best rate/different dates. Don't let them expire even if you get 4 more when you clinch Diamond.

    But changes / cancellation result in the loss of the upgrades.

    Cancellation or change of location will result in the loss of the upgrades. But AFAIK you will be okay with changing dates (availability based) or rates ...

    What's AFAIK?? :)

    I have two suite upgrades set to expire at the end of October, but no plans to use it. I am thinking about making a trip to LA in December and stay at their Andaz. Do I have the complete the stay by the expiration date or just need to apply it to a stay past the expiration date? Can I use the suite upgrade for my December stay?

    I'm pretty sure they can be applied to a stay past the expiration date.
