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.

Translation: Common Sense!

care to offer some tips?

I am trying to figure out how to protect myself before sending $1500 to a total stranger via paypal/chase quickpay.

obviously if he has references or a DD Presidential/Lifetime Platinum Elite member, it's a different story. But most sellers are not in that category.

the reason you are buying these certificates is to save $. There is no such a thing as saving $ without risk. If you do not feel comfortable just pay full price

I understand, but it's all about mitigating the risk. And deciding how much risk you're willing to take. Greater risk, greater reward and all that.

Buying marriot certificates on ebay can save you money. The amount saved is lower then on DDF, since is commiserate with a much lower risk, as a buyer is protected by ebay, paypal and credit card issuer should something go awry.

Most sellers request paypal payments as family and friends to avoid paypal fees,he his suggesting that a buyer who wants to go through with it and needs the extra protection pays the paypal fees and make the payment under goods and services or whatever it is called.

The 60K certs originated from Ritz card. Can be used at any Marriott brand, including Ritz (provided the hotel actually participates in the program)
