In January last year (2014), I did a status match for IHG with HHonors and got IHG Platinum. The email from IHG states that the status is only valid till end 2014. The card they mailed me last year however states <EXP 2015> My online account and web however still shows Platinum. Did I accidentally received a 2 year Platinum instead of the intended 1 or will this status disappear soon? I am trying to see if I should be booking 1st quarter stays with IHG, HHonors or SPG. If I do not have Plat for IHG, then the choices will only be SPG or HHonors. Has anyone's status already "dropped" due to failure to re-qualify? Thanks.
