The Chase Sapphire Reserve® is one of the best premium travel rewards credit cards available today. There’s one thing missing, however: a lack of hotel status benefits. That is, until now.
Cardholders of the Chase Sapphire Reserve card can now get Marriott Bonvoy Gold status for 3 months and also have the opportunity to extend that status until 2025.
Let’s take a look at all of the details.
Get Marriott Bonvoy Gold Elite Status for 3 Months
Chase Sapphire Reserve cardholders and J.P. Morgan Reserve cardholders now have the ability to get Marriott Bonvoy Gold Elite status for 3 months.
You must register for the promotion between July 1, 2023, and September 30, 2023. Your request should be processed within 3 business days.
To register, log on to your Chase Ultimate Rewards account and select your Chase Sapphire Reserve card. Then use the dropdown arrow to select Card Benefits.
Then you’ll see the new Marriott Bonvoy Gold Elite status benefit. Simply click on Learn More then enter your Marriott Bonvoy number to register.
If you’d rather not mess with that, you can register by going to the dedicated landing page for this promotion.
Hot Tip: If you currently have Marriott Bonvoy Gold Elite status or higher, you aren’t eligible for this promotion.
How To Extend Your New Status
While the first 3 months of your new Marriott Gold Elite status are complimentary, you can extend your status through February 2025 by staying 3 qualifying paid nights at participating Marriott hotels.
Here’s the fine print for this offer:
- Your 3 nights must be completed during your initial 3-month complimentary Gold Elite status period.
- Award nights don’t count.
- Qualifying nights must be booked through Marriott’s website or mobile app. Nights booked through third parties, including Ultimate Rewards, do not count.
- Nights do not need to be consecutive.
Is This a Good Deal?
There is no downside to the 3-month complimentary Marriott Bonvoy status, so yes, it’s a good deal. Whether or not staying 3 paid nights to extend your status is a good idea will be a personal decision.
If you’ve got 3 nights you need to stay in a hotel during a 3-month period, it could make sense to spend those nights in a Marriott location to extend your status. However, I probably wouldn’t go out of my way to make that happen.
While there are some nice perks of Marriott Bonvoy Gold Elite status such as 2 p.m. late checkout and room upgrades, it doesn’t come with some of the more desirable hotel elite status perks such as free breakfast.
Plus, Marriott Gold Elite status comes complimentary with these credit cards so it’s relatively easy to get:
- The Platinum Card® from American Express (upon enrollment)
- The Business Platinum Card® from American Express (upon enrollment)
- Marriott Bonvoy Bevy™ American Express® Card
- Marriott Bonvoy Bountiful™ Credit Card
- Marriott Bonvoy Business® American Express® Card
You can even get the more desirable Marriott Bonvoy Platinum Elite status by holding this card:
The Chase Sapphire Reserve card is offering complimentary Marriott Bonvoy Gold Elite status for 3 months when you register between July 1, 2023, and September 30, 2023. If you stay 3 paid nights during your 3-month trial, your status will be extended through February 2025.
