Chase Sapphire Reserve adds Marriott Gold fast track


Marriott Gold is the second lowest of Marriott’s elite tiers and offers a modest set of benefits including 2pm late check-out, 25% bonus points on stays, free premium wifi and upgrades to non-suite rooms.

Complimentary Marriott Gold status is already a benefit of the American Express Platinum card and the American Express Business Platinum but now Chase is offering its Sapphire Reserve cardholders complimentary Marriott Gold status for three months with the opportunity to extend it through February 2024 with 3 stays.

The Deal

  • Chase Sapphire Reserve cardholders have access to three months of complimentary Marriott Gold status with the option to extend through February 2024.

Terms and Conditions

  • Register between July 1 and September 30, 2022.
  • Once registered, you’ll receive Marriott Bonvoy Gold status for a period of three months
  • Stay three paid nights that are booked directly with Marriott during the three month period and receive Gold status through February 2024

Quick Thoughts

Marriott Gold isn’t the most inspirational of elite statuses, things don’t really start getting good until reaching Platinum, which is the next status up. Unfortunately, this offer doesn’t seem to give you any sort of fast track past Gold, so you’re still starting from square one to get to the 50 required elite nights for Platinum.

That said, if if you have Marriott stays coming up, you might as well register for the offer,  as it’s better than nothing. But, I certainly wouldn’t go out of my way to arrange stays in order to fulfill it.

My wife Erin and my first big journey together went around the world in 100 days for our honeymoon, a trip in which I had one car accident and got one speeding ticket in every country that we visited (I think that I may still have an arrest warrant in New Zealand for an unpaid ticket, but we’ll keep that between us). We currently live in one of the few corners of Washington State where you can still MS Staples Gift Cards at Safeway; we own a winery, ski after work and hike as much as our elderly knees will let us.

FM: “Better than nothing.”

Marriott: “Challenge accepted.”

[…] and notes from around the interweb: Chase Sapphire Reserve fast track offer to Marriott Gold which doesn’t give you much but, as my grandfather used to say, is ‘better than a hole […]


When everyone has status, no one has status.


With Marriott, it seems more like no one has status, unconditionally.


Marriott properties no longer provide any benefits to plats or golds. Why bother?


Talk about being on the fast track to nowhere.

Where does one NOT sign up?


I’m an authorized user on the card and I was successful in getting the Gold status. Marriott is a distant third for me in terms of hotel programs, but yeah… I’ll take it for my upcoming 3 night stay. Requested on Saturday, account updated today.
