Chase Sapphire Reserve Marriott Gold fast track

At the moment the Chase Sapphire Reserve® Card (review) is offering Marriott Bonvoy Gold status, with the opportunity to extend it in conjunction with stays:

  • Register between July 1 and September 30, 2022, by logging into your Chase account and going to the benefits tab
  • Once registered, you’ll receive Marriott Bonvoy Gold status for a period of three months
  • If you stay three paid nights booked directly with Marriott during that three month period, you’ll receive status through February 2024
Chase Sapphire Reserve Marriott Gold offer

Is this Marriott Gold offer worth it?

Marriott Bonvoy Gold status isn’t the most valuable mid-tier hotel elite status (status becomes much more valuable once you reach Platinum, where you start receiving free breakfast and earning suite night awards). Marriott Bonvoy Gold status offers perks like 25% bonus points, 2PM late check-out, enhanced Wi-Fi, a room upgrade subject to availability (to non-suites), etc.

If you happen to have Marriott stays coming up, then this offer is obviously better than nothing, since some status is better than no status. Just keep in mind that The Platinum Card® from American Express (review) offers Marriott Bonvoy Gold status for as long as you’re a cardmember (enrollment required), so that’s a much better opportunity, as there are no stays required either.

You may receive upgraded rooms as a Marriott Gold member

Bottom line

For a limited time, those with the Chase Sapphire Reserve® Card can receive complimentary Marriott Bonvoy Gold status. The status is valid for a period of three months, and if you stay three paid nights during that period, you can receive the status through February 2024.

This is better than nothing for those who don’t have status with Marriott, but that’s about it.

Does anyone plan on taking advantage of this Chase Sapphire Reserve Marriott Gold offer?

    If they added nights to your account equivalent to gold I would do cartwheels across my living room. As is the best I can do is pick my nose since I usually have platinum anyway.

    1. AA70 Gold

      That's the problem I have with the AMEX Bonvoy Brilliant ($450/year) card. It gives you gold status but still only 15 nights like the lesser cards. Now that they've cut the $300 property credit that card no longer has a place in my wallet.

    They are most definitely up to something. Chase Luxury Hotels now requires you to have the Sapphire Reserve, United MileagePlus, or J.P. Morgan Reserve card to make reservations which I noticed last week. It doesn't look like they are accepting Sapphire Preferred or Ritz Carlton Visa any longer. They may also have accepted other cards in the past as well. I think they are trying to compete with Amex Platinum to make the Reserve card...

    Friends don't let friends do Marriott.

    But, seriously, it's getting to be the time for Chase to rethink the CSR's place in the universe. For us, the card is for one and only one spend category. All other spend goes to other issuers / cards.

  4. Vickie Guest

    Any idea if this will work with the authorized user’s Marriott number? Husband has the card but we use my accounts for everything.

  5. SwimBikeFly Guest

    Biggest benefit to gold status is free enhanced wifi. It’s actually fast enough to stream and can cost upwards of $20/night.

    I personally value it like I value MCE on AA. Is it the sexiest benefit? Nope. Does it greatly better my experience? Absolutely.

    1. Ben Schlappig OMAAT

      @ SwimBikeFly -- Good point about the Wi-Fi, thanks. Went ahead and added that to the post.

  6. reddargon Diamond

    Is it just me or is Chase really struggling with this card? They raised the fee and then added a bunch of benefits that I can't imagine appeal to many people. I wonder how many people canceled/downgrade in the past year, or whether people were too lazy to do anything and ended up just paying more.

    1. RetiredATLATC Diamond

      I downgraded to the CSP as, as you said, there are a lot of benefits that are only good to a small percentage of members.

      I'm sure it'd be much more useful if I lived in NYC or another major city, but I live remotely on top of a mtn, and doordash/Lyft/etc aren't coming to me any time soon.

    2. Steve Diamond

      I feel the majority of people just ended up paying more. Feel like you fall into two camps with this card. You got it like everyone else did a few years ago and its your card you use for everything, cant tell you how many friends i have with this card that i see them use on 1x categories but its just simple for people not like us who just use one card for everything....

The other camp is pros like us who either get the new max value or have already downgraded. I dont think JPM is struggling with this card if people are being lazy and just paying more for it.

    We’ll continue to book Marriott properties with the AMEX Plat since Gold status is a “standard” perk. Considered downgrading the CSR this year but with the $300 credit and 10x points for hotels and rental cars it’s just enough for me to get great value.

    1. Kayakj Guest

      FYI you don't need to use the Amex to get the status on mariott. The card gives you the status and you can then use any card you want.

    Since not even Marriott Platinum is worth much anymore (all the Marriott affiliated Hotels that don't actually give you free breakfast or recognize what a Marriott Platinum is) Marriott Gold is worth pretty much zero. Especially as it takes way too many points vs other Hotel programs to redeem for a place you actually want to stay. Marriott Bonvoyed the value out of the program. This "benefit" is advertising for Marriott. I hope Chase didn't...

I'd rather see NH, Dusit, or other more interesting Hotel chains added to the CSR as a benefit.

    1. Beavis Guest

      My experience differs. I have always gotten a 4PM late checkout, extra points and room upgrades. I just got an 1 PM early checkin yesterday. I have mostly gotten a free breakfast, too.

    2. EndlosLuft Guest

      The last Marriott affiliated hotel wouldn't even give me a 2 PM checkout. No Platinum recognition, no breakfast. Contacted Marriott after pointing out that they are the most inconsistent Hotel brand. They said they would reach out to the Hotel and just don't want to recognize that they have a problem. I'm staying at any other chain now. Marriott is just too frustrating to deal with.

    3. stlsch02 New Member

      What about Marriott Silver Elite
      I find it very useful

  9. RetiredATLATC Diamond

    Enh, still not worth keeping the card. Too many useless "benefits" that are only worthwhile to some.
