Marriott credit card offers Gold status but I have questions

I am applying for the 80k points plus Gold Status Chase credit card which also grants gold status after spending $3k in first 3 months etc. I can complete those requirements almost immediately.

Do I have to wait a full 6-8 weeks before enjoying Gold status when I travel? I am going to be on the road for the next couple of months at some nice Marriott properties (thru May) and could really use the little extras. Any suggestions?


I have Lifetime nights 427 and Points 663,574 almost there and then the rules changed!! ARHG.

I missed gold by a hair in 2015 so I am currently Silver with 520,574 points and 22 NIGHTS this year.

BUT I know this is an unrelated question but why does my account say I have 22 nights this year and lists only just 3 stays totaling 7 nights. Even those plus upcoming reservations only total 18.

Am I missing something?


I have Diamond status at Hilton but seem to be moving more towards Marriott and I just don't seem to have the time to figure out how to maximize all the various offers from travel partners etc..
