Quick Thoughts

This is a very interesting upgrade offer. Whereas previous upgrade offers were for points, this one will get you to elite status faster. Keep in mind that you still earn one elite night credit for every $3,000 spent on old Marriott Rewards card if you never upgraded it to the Premier Plus/Bonvoy Boundless You’ll lose that benefit if you upgrade.

I’m personally intrigued by this particular offer. I’ve already got more than 30 nights down this year with just enough planned/booked to hit 50 and requalify for Platinum status. This offer would put me within a stone’s throw of Titanium, which is intriguing if Marriott continues to offer a soft landing in the future when I don’t requalify.

On the other hand, points certainly may be more valuable to many, especially since you can manufacture Elite nights without upgrading. I’m not totally sure whether or not I’ll take the offer and I suspect it will only appeal to those on the edges of elite tiers.

Overall, it’s interesting to see this different strategy to entice people to upgrade. I’ll have to give this one some thought.
