Marriott 5 Night + Miles Packages
« on: September 25, 2016, 09:56:42 PM »
Anyone here have experience getting Marriott to book these packages officially intended for timeshare owners?
Wondering if it's worth a DDMS post or if its too YMMV.

Code: [Select]
United 5 Nights + 55K miles   5 Nights + 77K miles   5 Nights + 110K miles   5 Nights + 132K miles
Category 1-5 165K 185K 215K 235K
Category 6 180K 200K 230K 250K
Category 7 200K 220K 250K 270K
Category 8 230K 250K 280K 300K
Category 9 275K 295K 325K 345K

seems like it all depends on getting the right agent. less eyes on this is better but it will be on the other blogs at some point soon. i will likely be pulling this off jan 1st.

I'm asking about recent DDF experiences.

i dont have any experience but i did a lot of research since i'm planning a 5 day Marriott stay. it seems that if you have some sort of elite status with Marriott then they will push it thorugh.
maybe a DDMS would get people to come forward that have had success.

I tried twice so far (with Gold status) but haven't been successful. When it does work, can you also do for Tier 1-3 or just Cat. 1-9?

I also tried recently and had no luck, even after HUCA a couple of times.

From TPG "Both agents told me I couldn’t redeem for Ritz-Carlton properties with the five-night packages."

I was told the return rates and they were pretty paltry. But they told me it can be done.
