Marriott Certs Sale
« on: July 01, 2013, 04:42:38 PM »
1 night at any Marriott Category 1-4 expiring 7/13 - asking $90.

Here's the list of Category 4 hotels:  https://www.marriott.com/hotel-search/Category4.hotels/

If it helps, I've got another four free Cat 1-4 nights available with later expirations, will sell for $100 each (only with the 7/13 one).

I did not know - just call and ask?

At any rate, I've got lots of Marriott points and free nights with no plans to use them, so the offer is still open.

What are you looking to get for a night in a cat 6 hotel (think it's 30K a night)?

I'd be using points so I don't think it would be a great deal for you, but I'll PM.

Since there's some interest in points, here's why I might offer a Cat 4 certificate vs. offering to sell points:

Seller perspective:  Marriott has been rolling out Mega Bonuses for a while and I'll earn one of those certificates after 2 or 3 one-night stays.  On the other hand, although I travel for business and am Marriott silver (almost worthless), I tend to stay at low priced hotels (avg. under $100 room rate) and often at Residence Inn which earns at a lower rate.  So let's say I earn, on average,  1,000 points per night.  That means 30 nights to get me the 30K Cat 6 reward.  Now if I sell a Cat 4 certificate for $90 I'm getting the equivalent of a $30-45 return per night.  If I sell 30K points for something like $250 then I'm getting the equivalent of an $8-9 return per night.

Buyer perspective:  There are plenty of Cat 4 hotels that go in the high $100s plus tax.  Buy a certificate and save $100, or 50%.  But Cat 6 rarely go over $300 plus tax, so spend $250 on the points and save only $50, or something like 20%.

I know, I know, there are plenty of exceptions and opportunities that could change this, but that was my general cheshbon.

I have a category 1-4 cert.  Marriott says they're non-transferable, and that I must be the one to check in, and that there is no second party/sharing on a cert. reservation, so I cant put a second individual.

Anyone have any experience with this?  I'd like to possibly sell mine, or give it to a friend/family, but is it possible at all for someone else to use it?

TIA
