Excerpted from the article above:"Loyalty members build up points for upgrades, free room stays and perks like free Wifi and late check out among other benefits. There are currently 99 members who hold platinum status with both SPG and Marriott Rewards, but thousands who are staunchly loyal to SPG alone."

This must be a typo. I'm platinum with both companies since the merge, as, I'm sure, are thousands of other travelers.

I agree.. I ignored this comment in the article.. it would be an embarrassment if that was the case.
