New Marriott Status Challenge for Gold and Platinum Status
Earlier this week, God Save the Points reported a new Marriott Status Challenge was available to Marriott members. Members can call Marriott (801-468-4000) or SPG (888-625-4988) and enroll in the challenge to earn Gold or Platinum Status.
Status Challenge Requirements
- Earn Marriott Gold after staying 8 nights in 90 days
- Earn Marriott Platinum after staying 16 nights in 90 days
***Members may only participate in one status challenge every 3 years, so you should make sure you are able complete the challenge before enrolling.
This is a great promo since similar challenges offered in the past required an extra 2 nights for Platinum. Unfortunately like everything Marriott nowadays, there appear to be some execution issues with this promotion. Nick at Frequent Miler covered some inconsistencies in the information provided by Marriott and SPG agents including agents who aren’t even aware that the promotion exists. Nick suggests the HUCA approach. It is also unclear whether reward stays will count towards your nights and whether you have until the end of the year or 90 days. It can’t hurt to wait until you have your upcoming stay to register.
