A co-worker recently told me about a gold status challenge where you get 90 days to stay a certain amount of times to earn gold status.  Anyone know how i sign up?

      I called and signed up for the gold challenge.  I've never received an email about it.  What are the stay requirements for the 90 day period?  How do I know an official count and when it started?

            Hi alinab, I can definitely check for you as well.  I have taken your Rewards number out of the post about just as a precaution to make sure your information stays private.  I will circle back via direct message with additional challenge details.

          Hi carat, would you be able to check on the status of my gold challenge? I called earlier this week and was told that I was enrolled, but I have not received any confirmation email.

           

          Thank you!

            Hi krolik12,

             

            We do not send confirmation emails for Status Challenge enrollment and they are not visible in your Rewards account online. These challenges are manually tracked, but your status is automatically upgraded upon the posting of the final required stay of the challenge.

             

            Thanks!

    Great question, piaax3!  Members status will only be upgraded up completion of the challenge.  Once you've completed the challenge, you will keep that status for the remainder of the following year.  So say you enrolled and completed a Gold Challenge this year, you would be able to keep Gold Status until January of 2018.

      so if i wait until January 2017 to take the challenge and complete it by February 2017, i will have it all the way through to Dec 2018?

        The status would be valid through January 2019. To maintain status after that, you would need to stay the required number of nights in 2018.

    I have recently become Marriott gold through SPG status match.

     

    I have read about Marriott offering a road to platinum challenge for 9 stays during 90 days.

     

    If I am eligible for this, do you know if points + cash stays count towards the 9 stays or if it is only 100% paid stays.

      Welcome to Insiders, yul438!  When it comes to status furthering promotions and challenges, cash + points bookings are not eligible to count as one of the required stays.  Also, in order to participate in a Platinum challenge, members must have at least 50 nights listed in their Rewards account.  We can always check your eligibility and if you are interested, please send a DM with your Rewards number.
