Ritz-Carlton just launched a great promotion for all Ritz-Carlton Rewards Members. For all of 2014, you’ll earn two Elite night credits for each night stay at a participating Ritz-Carlton property. This even applies to prior stays. If you have already stayed at a property the credit will be applied retroactively. This makes maintaining or achieving Elite status twice as fast, and means you’ll get to Gold status in 25 nights instead of 50, or Platinum in just 38 instead of the usual whopping 75.

The best part is that you don’t have to register, as the credits will be applied automatically. Here’s the link to the promotion page.

Full Terms and Conditions:

Guests must be a member of The Ritz-Carlton Rewards at the time of their stay. Stays must be at a participating Ritz-Carlton property, and for each eligible night, members will receive two Elite night credits. Nights spent while redeeming an award are not eligible for Elite night credit. Double Elite night credits are retroactively granted to members for all stays at Ritz-Carlton properties starting on January 1, 2014, and are automatically applied to members’ accounts. To be eligible for retroactive double Elite night credit, guests must have been a Ritz-Carlton Rewards member during that stay in 2014. Nights stayed at a Ritz-Carlton property as a member of the Marriott Rewards program are not eligible for double Elite night credit. Members can review their current status by logging into their account.
