You travel fairly often so we thought you’d particularly appreciate this exclusive invitation from Marriott Rewards®, the award-winning travel programme. They are waiving the 50-night requirement by offering automatic Gold Elite status* as well as triple BA Miles on stays between 31 March and 30 June 2008. That means you will collect up to 6 BA Miles** per US dollar spent, which is over 11 BA Miles per pound spent based on the current exchange rate.
I don't stay at many Marriotts so will probably will not get much use for this but may have some use to others, the enrollment code is BAG1
Programs: Muccihood de la Rotisserie Doree, BAEC Gold, SAS Eurobonus basic, Ansett Golden Wing :-(

I just got this offer on my blackberry so can't read all details but I was worried that was the case. I have been directing my stays to Marriots and am now Silver - does this mean I won't get the triple miles?
Programs: BA Blue, BA Amex Plat Plus, PriorityPass
I've been offered the Silver card - see below...

To take advantage of this offer, simply enrol in the Marriott Rewards Programme.
You will also receive automatic Silver Elite status which provides superb benefits including a Reservation Guarantee, Elite reservation phone line, exclusive Guest Services phone line, priority late checkout and exclusive member-only specials. And with over 2,800 properties in 68 countries, you can enjoy these privileges wherever you travel.
My question is simply - Is it worth it? What does Silver Elite Status really give you that's worth having? I could divert maybe 3 or 4 stays per year to Marriott but is there much benefit apart from the obvious miles earning potential. Member-only specials? How special?
I presume I could just use the BAG1 code to go straight for Gold rather than BAS1 for Silver?
Programs: BAEC Gold, BD Gold, Lufthansa FTL plus lots of shiny hotel and rental car plastic
I got given Silver the last time around, now I've been given Gold.
As a pretty loyal Hilton person I don't know how much I'd use it. The firm I work for likes people to stay at a Renaissance where we frequently travel to so I'll give it a go.
Obviously designed for the UK cardholders. I was able to sign up and get enrolled with a US address on the link provided in the email but when I went to create my online account it didn't like me very much!
