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.

For sellers who know how to make the buyers the primary on reservations, does the seller collect the buyer info (buyer's name, hotel desired, travel dates) and make the reservation or is the buyer supposed to make the reservation under "advance points" (no points in my Marriott account currently) and then the seller calls in to attach their cert to my booking? Please help! Thank you!

The seller is not able to attach the certificate to a booking the buyer made. The certificate can only be used on the owner's account . Therefore, the seller needs to make the buyer the primary guest, do the booking and attach the certificate to it.

Buying TWO cat 1-4 7 night packages @ $450 each -- travel in April 2019. Please PM.

Looking for someone who has experience making these bookings with the buyer being the PRIMARY on the reservation. I've encountered a few sellers who didn't know how or were unable to do so.

Thank you!

Don't trust anything this man tells you, he has multiple identities.
ETA: This was a bad joke btw, I can vouch for @ChaimMoskowitz
