Marriott Bonvoy Elite Status Soft Landing
Marriott Bonvoy has decided to offer soft landings for elite status members who didn’t re-qualify for 2023 status. What this means is the program will allow you to keep status that is one level lower than the status level you had during 2022. Thus Titanium members who didn’t requalify will receive Platinum status for 2023, Platinum will receive Gold and so on. Click here to learn more.
In January 2023, all Members will have their 2022 loyalty activity evaluated as follows:
- Members who achieved their existing Elite status again in 2022 will have their current status renewed through February 2024.
- Members who did not re-achieve their existing Elite status in 2022 will be offered one tier below their current status through February 2024. These members will see their new status starting in March 2023 and can enjoy their existing status through February 2024.
- Members who achieved a higher Elite level during 2022 already have a status expiration date of February 2024.
