For those that don't know how certificates work.

Seven night and five night certificates

1. Marriott certificates can be used for any reservation that can be booked with points. To search for reward availability simply go to marriott.com and check the box to search "using points".

Marriott hotels are divided into categories. (Cheapest being category one) below is a list of all the category 1-4 hotels  http://www.marriott.com/hotel-search/Category1.hotels.Category2.Category3.Category4.Category5/


2. A 5/7 night certificates must be used for 5/7 consecutive nights. The reservation cannot be split up.

3. In order to hold the room you need a credit card. Your card will be kept for incidentals and you won't be charged for the room.

4. Certificates can be gifted BUT the room needs to be booked under the account holders name and you will be added a secondary guest.

5. Gold or plat benefits depend heavily on the hotel. At check in you may or may not get an upgrade.

The wiki states "Certificates can be gifted and the room can be booked with anyone's name as the primary guest (and not just secondary guest)"
Can anyone tell me how to do this? I am purchasing a certificate and need it in my account so that I can upgrade the category with my points.

Did anyone else catch the Frequent Milers post on a potential scenario where Marriott certificates would be cashed out in a very favorable rate for points? He doesnít think itís likely to happen but it could be that Marriott is just trying to keep things quiet

I actually caught it as well and his points are very valid in my mind also.  There is speculation currently whether all unused certificates will be cancelled on 1 August and the points equivalent returned to your account. (which means you'd end up with really cheap miles).
