Total Rewards is offering a 50% bonus on Tier Credits earned between January 1, 2015 and March 31, 2015. The bonus applies to the first 50,000 Tier Credits earned and will yield a maximum of 25,000 extra Tier Credits. These extra Tier Credits are in addition to the Daily Tier Credit Bonuses which are still in effect.
You must earn at least 1,000 Tier credits between January 1 and March 31, 2015 in order to qualify for the extra Tier Credits. According to the fine print, the Daily Tier Credit Bonuses count toward the 50,000 Tier Credits maximum and will receive the 50% bonus. This only applies to Tier Credits. The bonus does not apply to Rewards Credits (comps). The extra Tier Credits earned from this promotion will be calculated after March 31, 2015 and posted to your Total Rewards account on April 15, 2015.
These Bonus Tier Credits will make it a lot easier for most people to earn Platinum status. I suspect that many people who have been wondering whether to renew their Diamond status will do so if they take advantage of this promotion. If you are able to take full advantage of the promotion, it will get you halfway to SevenStars status, qualify you for Diamond Aspiration Level 1 (4 free nights and $100 folio credit) and almost get you to Diamond Aspiration Level 2 (Annual Retreat with $750 airfare credit, a New Year’s Eve offer, VIP round-trip airport transportation between the Total Rewards destination you are visiting and an airport within 50 miles, and a Companion Card).
