Air China has a similar deal but with 12 nights to requalify. I have a trip this week where I have to stay at a Marriott. This promotion sounds like a great deal. I had an instant approval granting me Gold for 90 days. Hopefully there will be upgrade space for me. I'll let everyone know how it goes.
