Marriott Bonvoy Giving Members Soft-Landing for 2023
Marriott Bonvoy is once again giving members soft-landing in 2023, contrary to previous reports. Details are already available of the Marriott website. In January 2023, all members will have their 2022 loyalty activity evaluated based on the status they had, and the one they reached for the new year.
Here’s how it works for 2023:
- 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.
This is good news for Bonvoy members who were not able to retain their status for 2023. Instead of going down to the Silver Elite membership level, you will only drop down one level. So if you were Ambassador in 2022, you will be Titanium March 2023 through February 2024. Titanium will become Platinum, Platinum will become Gold, and Gold will become Silver for the next year.
And obviously, if you achieved your Elite status again or reached a higher Elite level, you’ll enjoy that status through February 2024.
