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.

See post #4067 for a history of bid/ask on these 1/5/7 night certificates of different levels

If you are serious about selling this certificate, you should drop the price significantly. Right above you, there is someone selling a Cat 6 Platinum certificate for the same price. There are many other people on the forum selling Gold 7-night Cat 1-5 certificates for $300, and even those will probably drop in price soon due to the recent AC promotion.

which AC promotion? sorry I'm not aware. If you're talking about Air Canada then a limited time transfer promo in the vacation package should not decrease the market going rate for these certs; but yes $500 is too high for that cert.

Yes, that one. I believe that the promotion will lead to a glut of these certificates on the market. But that's just my prediction, and I guess that time will tell.

Are the 7 night certificates associated to the original account? As in if I purchase it, could my name be on the primary check in guest? Worried about checking in without the account holder. Thanks
