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.

cat. 1-4 nights go for $100 +.
7 night cert. should cost $600 (5 night free, so 6x 100)

You can also use the single nights different places each night, while the 7 night certificate is a one time use at one property only. Your comparing apples and oranges to calculate value.

If the suite is available during checkin, for sure!

It all starts when one impatient person wants his money right away so he drops price like crazy, and snowballs from there

I guess demand side of supply/demand equation does not exist

If the suite is available during checkin, for sure!

How much you refunding if not?

You claim price dropped because some sellers were desperate but if there was enough demand prices would rebound.
