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.

I know this thread is mostly for buying and selling Marriott certs. I recently bought a cert and wanted to ask you all about this issue: What happens when the transaction is completed, and you've purchased a cert and applied it to a date, but later need to change it? Does the original seller have an obligation to help you change date as long as the cancellation is still 2 days before the stay? Or is the transaction over and is the buyer therefore no longer subject to any obligation to respond?

Just curious what your position is on this. It happened to me recently so wanted to see if you all have a general stance on this.

I think that the first time I would be happy to change. However, the seller can't be expected to always be (unless of course there are extenuating circumstances).

Looking to swap my category 5 7 night cert (Expires 8/12/2020, no status) for category 4 7 night cert (Valid till at least 1/6/2020).
I can downgrade Cat 5 to 4 and get 60k points back, but wondering if anyone benefit from Cat 5 certificate.

Are any certs good for an 85k RC property?

Yes, that's pretty fair. And can't necessarily expect buyer to be on call to change. I agree that the transaction is technically done after the sale, and then it's up to the seller to decide whether they want to make the 1 change, given the circumstances.
