So I just made a purchase on my PC CC a coupe of weeks ago and got the 80k points. When the points posted, I got boosted to Platinum status. After a couple of days, it went back down to Gold status. I emailed PC support about and they fixed it, BUT... here is a quote from support email that confused me: "I have made the necessary adjustment in order for your account to show your status as Platinum Elite, valid until end of 2012. To continue with this status for 2013, you must meet the minimum requirements of Platinum status by December 31st of 2012." I understood that the status earned in the year is good for the year it was earned in AND the next year. My account page says "You have maintained Platinum Status for the next year." which I think means that I am good through 2013? Anyone has insight on this?
