Only 10K Marriott refund?
Why is it so much lower than the 7 night cert?

Because it is for timeshare owners and it has already been proven they can rip em off... :P

The 7 nights get a 45k refund.
Call and ask.
Called a few times all told me they can't reimburse the nights for points.
I'll try HUCAing some more  later

Try booking a hotel and then cancelling. But it seems it's just 10K, so on 2nd thought, don't do that :)

Yea I think 5 nights are worth more than 10k points
I'll either sell them or use them

I'm curious how anyone has gotten the 5 nights. I've called probably 10 times in the past 3 months. I get one of three answers:

1) I can't do it. My system doesn't even show me the option (even when I tell them the award code).
2) That's for vacation owners only.
3) I will have to send you over to Marriott Rewards (platinum line, when they don't say only vacation owners).


How safe is it to buy one of these 7 night award packages from someone selling on the Dan's Deals Forums?

It's mainly about getting the right agent. All I told them was that I wanted the 5 night package , the agent said I can't ,so I told her that my friends got it and she said she'll do an exception this one time. If it helps I called around 330 pm maybe you'll get the same agent I got.

They officially do not allow you to cancel the certificate portion of a package for points. I tried booking and canceling but the certificate was reissued and no points. Does anyone know how to successfully trade in a 7 night certificate for points?

Has anyone had experience getting a 5 night certificate package recently?
Tried today and they told me they cannot make an exception, corporate will no longer allow it, they could lose their jobs, etc.
Worth it to HUCA?
