Does anyone have a date/hotel that still works ?
I submitted my claim wrong so they said I could resubmit it

Time to do some legwork mon frere. It's possible, even likely, that those the hotels and dates that were successful for people a few days ago are no longer working.

+1, that should go without saying though.

I already got approved for the brg free night, but now something came up and I'm not available that day. Do you think I can get away with changing the date and still keep my free night?

So my saga continues....

1) Submitted shortly after deadline - thought I wasn't going to get anywhere

2) Response came that difference was less than one percent so I wasn't eligible - the problem is that there math was just plain wrong

3) I responded pointing out the mistake

4) They responded that I was approved for the free night and should book within 24 hours - The problem is that they sent me the email on Friday afternoon! - So I didn't check email until late Motzei Shabbos.

5) I booked the room and sent in code on Sunday morning

6) They responded that I am too late....

7) I sent in an email explaining that for religious reasons I don't work from Fri afternoon until Sunday morning...


...Anyone wanna predict what's coming next?

I can't imagine that they'd let you changeit,
But you could try to sell it
Or give it away

So I was informed that "The W Hoboken has agreed to honor the free night."

...and now after all that fighting I am considering selling or bartering my room (possibly for a diff. spg free room).

It's the same night as the big DD convention (this monday night).

Will consider all legitimate offers.

p.s. It's this room: http://www.starwoodhotels.com/whotels/property/rooms/room_class_detail.html?propertyID=1785&roomClassId=1003965305

Too bad it's not the night before, already have the 25th.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Too bad indeed. Bartering with you would have been fun!

BTW I don't even know the details on how I would sell this? Can I just call and change the name on the reservation? Is it that simple?

you can always add a name to the reservation with you. Then that person can check in.

Id imagine that if you are spending 1K on a suite, you might not care to shop around. Almost like the people who buy mattresses from Sleepys at full price.
Does sleepys run discounts on the tempurpedic beds? Thanks
