Can the 2 nights sign up bonus earned be used by someone else other than the card holder?

It should be just like any other Marriott reservation. Make reservation in your name and call to add guest and say you are arriving on a later flight or something.

Has anyone who cancelled an award booking actually seen their points credited/deposited back into their account.  It seems this issue has been a problem since day 1 --- unfortunately, I've been waiting for 12 days without my points being returned to my account.  They started saying it would take 7-10 days, yesterday they told me 5-10 business days -- today they said they don't have any idea when the issue will be resolved.

Just spoke to someone now. They said that my cancellation created certificates, in my case 90k certificates as it was for the SRBH, that are just floating around in my account and she was able to see them but because they have "system issues" they cant be cancelled and redeposited just yet.

I had the same quesstion.  Aside from the sign-up bonus, and if I'm already at gold status and none of them can get me to Platinum, what's the benefit of this card?  I'm a Hilton loyalist (I actually earn from large meeting and stay expenses for work and they are way more generous with bonus earning to where I can get often get about 30% back in points) but we do spend some money at SPG hotels and I'm trying to figure out what would be the best card to put that business spend on, basically to keep one card for the annual free night and to use only for SPG expenses.  This high end card, or any of them, don't offer a way to spend up to platinum or spend up to earning an annual second night, right?

It seems like the SPG Biz card also gets 6ppd and will also get gold status at 30k spend, which we will spend at spg properties.  Y'all jumping on this just to get the bonus, free night and put back in the sock drawer?  I want to make sure I'm not missing something.  :D
Doesnít the Lux offer platinum at 75k spend?

Didn't work, but thank you. Rep wasn't willing to manually apply the offer. Still looking for DP of someone pushing their luck and applying despite getting the warning.
Thatís what HUCA is for

Got the ineligible warning... any chance of approval if I click through? Haven't found any DPs of people trying to click through the warning on this or other cards.
Possible work around DP here:

5th person told me that though his supervisor wonít allow the change he advises I call the hotel directly to cancel and rebook. So I did and it worked pretty easily. I simply told them that Iíll rebook the same nights before you go ahead and cancel to ensure that I am not simply looking to cancel to waive the fee.
For those that will be doing it this way note that the points will not be deposited back into account for possibly 7-10 days.

Is this still available? Looks like Aug 23 the website will be fixed
Use the link I posted above. That should work now if you still hold the status.
