90 day trial. Stay 8 times in those 90 days to extend your membership. You should probably include that small detail, OP

It says "Especially for you, stay 8 nights as a Gold Elite member within your first 90 days of joining Marriott Rewards and you'll retain your Gold Elite status until February 2012."

I believe it is 8 nights and not 8 stays as u mentioned, but again you could have got a different offer.Wink

I wouldn't trust a site that has "Enrol" misspelled twice on the page.

Thanks OP! Perfect timing.

If I were a Marriott Gold Elite member and I had earned my way into the program, I'd be pissed. Marriott is watering down their loyalty program by doing this.

Considering they are only asking for address info to register (join), I can't see an angle. Well, unless they try to hook you later with an email. But doesn't seem fishy to me.
