90 day Marriott Gold Elite trial

Through February 28, Marriott is offering Air China PhoenixMiles members instant Gold Elite status for 90 days, with 12 nights required in that period to retain Gold Elite status for the year. Apparently the promotion is for existing and new Marriott Rewards members.

Yep, I find this to be as random as you do!

  1. This has been available the entirety of 2010 – just ask. There’s also the platinum for 18 nights, but they’re more iffy about it lately.

  2. I’m a former Platinum holder and was Silver with 35 nights for the year when I got an offer Oct 1 for instant Gold until 12/31 and Gold for 2011 if I stayed 6 more stays (not just nights).

    As I write this, I’m staying night #6 at the Fairfield EWR (very nice room for a Fairfield, certainly nicer than the Courtyard next door).

  3. Thanks. I just signed up, and will have 12 nights in the bag by end of the year.
    Now, I have a difficult decision to make.
    I have SPG Platinum, Hyatt Diamond and Marriott to qualify for 2012……tough choice, but I think I will shoot for Hyatt first, SPG second and Marriott third.
