question about obtaining mariott status
« on: September 02, 2020, 09:51:50 PM »
So I have 43 night with mariott. If I stay an aditional 7 nights, I get to become marriott platinum. 

I found a hotel for $73/night.

Is it worth doing?  Can I use points to get the night credit?

I would also get 2,500 bonus points on each stay, plus a one-time bonus of 5,000 additional points after three stays.

Do the math yourself, but u can find cat 1 hotels and book with points getting the 5th night free.

You won't qualify for this promotion on points stays.

is it worth spending an extra 20 to get an additional 2000 points?

you can try this:
Looking to hit Platinum - I am currently Gold. I need 7 nights.

Subsidizing  paid stays at $10 per night or OBO.  Multiple night stays are worth more to me so would be willing to pay more.  Please DM
You might have better luck, because you've got ddf credentials.
