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 just tried to "gift" a certificate and they told me I cannot. I can only "gift" points.

I HUCA and made a reservation with recipient as a 2nd guest. That worked but they asked if I was also going to be there. I said yes but much later.

They said it should be fine although officially certificates are for the account holder only.

How do you all buy and sell the certificates?

But didn't they start a new policy about this? I remember, a few months ago, having an issue and they insisted I call and rebook a reservation, as a gift, while my wife stood at the front desk.

I don't remember if it was a point redemption or a certificate.
