you can sell the FNA for more then the AF
Can you sell the FNA?  I spoke to a CS rep and she told me you have to be there in person at check-in.

Does the Bonvoy business card no longer give free night award? My card renewed in October and I didnít get the free night. Amex claim i need to have spent 60k in 2019 to be eligible?

There seems to be a delay. My annual fee posted in November and still haven't received my free night. #Bonvoy!

I want to use my FNA for my son and daughter-in-law.  A Bonvoy rep told me the award is for the account holder and I would have to be there at least for check-in.  Is this true?  If so, is there a way around it?

just add them to the reservation thru hotels front desk, has worked many many times in the USA. search the forum for Europe as there might have been problems there.

Thanks.  So the hotel won't care? Or do we need to be sly about the fact that I am not there? It is USA.

never talk more than you have to! EVER!!! but just add one or both of them on to the reservation and don't tell them anything about you not being there and they will be fine!

If I use the Marriott Bonvoy Business American Express Card to pay a post office box fee at the post office, do I get 4X? The concern is that although the merchant sells shipping services, the particular charge is not for making a shipment. What about if I pay the fee at usps.com?

I believe there is no, no annual fee option

Does each room count as its own night? If I book 2 rooms for 3 nights does that translate into 6 nights on my status or 3?
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

If I previously had the Starwood Preferred Guest Business Card (my name as sole prop), can I still get the marriott bonvoy business card under a business name?

Due to COVID-19, I didn't get to use the $300 credit for my Bonvoy Brilliant Amex this past year. My card anniversary date was September 8th. Did I blow my chance for last year's credit, or do I still have until the end of the current billing cycle or something?
