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

Market value of 540K points is ~$3620 and will get you 240K airline miles plus 2 7 night stays cat 1-5.  The upgrade cost is almost prohibitive and not a good use of miles.

Itís not gonna happen @ that price.

Now for the right price, someone here may agree to go through the trouble and upgrade their Cat 1-5 cert for you, which requires an additional 270K Marriott to get to RC Tier 5. IMO that *right* price starts at $2,100 ... if not slightly more.

good luck buying at that price. i would buy this in a heartbeat at 2K but i doubt there is any seller at that price

There is someone selling for around 2300. Probably the closest you will get

I have someone that sells me spg points for 1.9 cents each that's 180k for $3420 and for that you can get 540k Marriott and you can get a 7 night tier 4-5 certificate plus 120k miles and Alaska miles are worth at least 1.5 cents a piece so that's $1800 for Alaska so $3420 - $1800 = $1620 hence my offer of $1650 just for certificate.

You are missing the point.

270k Marriott will get that person the same 120k AS. And he can sell his 7nt Cat 1-5 for $350!!

And so on top that, why would anyone spend another 270K Marriott for a lousy $1270? (by your calculations [$1620 -$350 for Cat1-5 Cert])

It makes no sense for the seller. For you itíd be a sweetheart deal, sure.

Youíre looking at this only from your POV. Thereís nothing in it for the seller.
