    Quick question as I can't quite find the answer. I have a bunch of travel coming up for work starting this weekend, and I was planning to start a Platinum Challenge. It's my understanding that SPG checks status qualification in Feb.

    So, is there any reason to start the challenge in/after Feb as opposed to right now? I still plan to get the 50 nights by the end of this year, I just can't seem to understand if there is a reason to do it now or wait.

    No reason to wait if you'll hit 50 nights by year end anyway.

    status is valid from Jan 1 (or whenever you earn it) - Feb 28 of the following year. Your "counter" resets on Jan 1st every year. So even though you can enjoy the benefits through Feb, you start re-qualifying from Jan 1
