Summary

If you are thinking about taking advantage of this offer, be careful, as offers to match elite status should not be taken lightly. Some frequent guest loyalty programs may not allow you to take advantage of one again too soon after you had already done so — while other frequent guest loyalty programs may not allow you to take advantage of an elite status match offer again at all.

Although no specific language is included in this offer which would prevent you from taking advantage of another elite status match offer from Marriott Bonvoy ever again in the future if the opportunity presents itself again, no guarantees are offered. Unclear is whether the verbiage “This promotion is valid for one-time use” applies only to this iteration of the promotion or at all in the future.

If you are sure that you can take full advantage of this elite status match offer, you might want to consider doing so, as this offer is for a limited time only — but first ensure that it is worthwhile enough for you if you believe you might need it again in the future.
