Free Marriott Gold Status Still Available

Back in March I posted about a free Marriott Gold status offer, targeted to some Air France-KLM members but apparently open to all. I really thought that folks signing up but ineligible would lose the status, but so far that doesn’t seem tobe the case. And the offer is still there.

Meanwhile, I didn’t see it at the time, but this Flyertalk thread details a similar offer of free Marriott status for British Airways folks, the signup link is here.

There’s apparently a Virgin Atlantic version of the offer as well, but I haven’t seen the signup link. (Although if I were curious enough, a bit of playing around and based on the links of the other two offers, I might be able to figure it out.

  1. Thanks for this post Gary. Although I already had an existing Marriott Rewards account, I was successful in getting Gold status. I did this and opened a new account. Marriott then recognized me as being twice in their system since I use the same name and address, so Marriot combined the accounts and made my original existing account Gold which is great.
