Keep Marriott Gold Elite Status Through February 2019 for ONLY 32 Qualifying Nights
Today, I received an offer to fast track my Marriott Rewards Gold status renewal for 2018. Marriott’s Gold Elite status is very useful for anyone who stays at Marriott or SPG properties and comes with some very valuable perks.
Marriott Gold Status is earned after members stay 50 nights at Marriott branded hotels. This bar is significantly higher than the 10 nights required for Silver Elite status, but is also much more lucrative. Gold members are entitled to daily free breakfast and lounge access at specified Marriott brands. They also get free enhanced wifi, complimentary room upgrades (when available) and guaranteed late check-out.
My offer states that my gold status will likely expire in February of 2018 because I have only stayed 18 nights this year. However, if I complete 14 more qualifying nights I will be automatically renewed as a Gold Elite for 2018. This means I will achieve Gold status with only 32 nights- that’s nearly 40% less than their usual requirement!
- Bookings must be made through direct channels.
- Only stays between October 1 and December 31, 2017 qualify.
- Nights during award redemption stays are not eligible and will not be counted towards this promotion.
If you happen to be chasing Gold status, this is a great offer. As many of you know, there’s a much easier way to attain Gold status, get an Amex Platinum Card. The Platinum card gives you SPG Gold Status, which you can then match to Marriott Gold. However you choose to do it, these perks are certainly worth the effort, especially if you can regularly take advantage of the free breakfast.
