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

I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

I booked an award night and then tried attemted to add on my buyer. I didn't see that option online so I called in. First rep. told me that because it's a certificate I can't add guest. 2nd rep. told me that they can add guest but if they arrive first it will be charged as a regular room, and reversed once I arrive. Is this a new policy? Is there someway around this? Thanks.

Hoping to purchase a 7 night, cat 5 cert with platinum status for a November 2019 stay. Please PM me if you have one available.

I'm also interested (for the right price) in a 5/7 night, cat 8 cert with Platinum status for an August 2019 stay.

Thanks!

I was told the same thing as rep #1 told you and she elaborated with the story of rep #2.  Additionally, she told me this is the new policy as of January 1, 2019.

Any idea if this also applies to pre-existing bookings??

I don't know but I figured I would do a HUCA to check since this would suck.
