Elite levels in the Marriott Rewards program are earned by Marriott Rewards members who have already proven their loyalty by staying the required amount of nights at participating Marriott Rewards properties per calendar year. The demand for Gold Elite level benefits such as access to the concierge lounge or executive lounge, or free room upgrades is very high.
We respectfully reserve our Gold Elite benefits for Marriott Rewards members who have already proven their loyalty to Marriott. We greatly value our Elite members, and would not want to undermine their commitment to Marriott by upgrading members who have not stayed the requisite number of nights.
On behalf of Marriott Rewards Guest Services, I am willing to extend an offer to you to conditionally upgrade your status to the Silver Elite level. This new status would be valid through December 31, 2011; however, an updated membership card would not be processed until the following terms have been met.
In order to maintain this status, you must stay six paid nights beginning with the date the upgrade is processed, through December 31, 2011. This is a one-time offer, and would be effective within 24 to 48 hours of your acceptance of this upgrade offer.
Once you have stayed six paid nights, the Silver Elite status will be extended through February 2013. To retain this status for all of 2013, you would need to stay the qualifying number of nights during 2012. The Silver Elite level requires 10 personal paid nights, the Gold Elite level requires 50 personal paid nights, and the Platinum Elite level requires 75 personal paid nights.
Should you be unable to stay the six paid nights during this trial period, your account would be returned to your original status, and you would need to stay the normal night requirements to regain this Silver Elite level.
Elite nights earned through promotions that appear as non-stay nights in your account do not qualify for this offer.
Please reply to this email if you would like to accept this offer, and I will process the information to have your account upgraded and your eligible stays counted for the next few months.
Thank you for the opportunity to be of assistance and for making Marriott your preferred hotel chain.
