A LoyaltyLobby reader forwarded me an email that he had received from Marriott this week offering Gold status by having four stays within three months plus the month of signing up.
Marriott Rewards often sends out targeted offers such as this and they are usually worth taking advantage of.
You can access Marriott’s web page for status benefits here.
Worth checking if Marriott has extended this offer to your account (go and search the email inbox). The Gold status comes with worthwhile benefits such as room upgrades and breakfasts/club lounge access.
