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

New Peak Pricing going to make these certificates more valuable?

Not according to TPG, who states that any certificates which have a points amount tied to them (ie: credit card nights good at a 35k a night property) will only be valid for standard and off-peak awards, but not for peak pricing. I'm unclear about the vacation packages, but the way that Marriott is handling all reward matters, I would not be surprised if they applied the same rules to those as well.

If anything, this new change might lower the value of the vacation packages, because it might only make sense to use them during standard pricing, and stick to points for off-peak pricing.

Another big blow to the Bonvoy program.

PSA: In my opinion, if your intended reservation ends after September 14, I would wait to purchase any certificates, as they might no longer be valid for the dates you want based on peak/ off-peak pricing.

Find it hard to believe that they won't honor attached certificates.
On the other hand, prices may go up with Peak Pricing (or down with Point Breaks).
If you have an intended reservation for after September 14, might make sense to lock it in now...

That's right. I was unclear. What I should have said is not to purchase now unless your dates are locked in and won't change.

Can you please excuse my ignorance but what does a 5/7 week Marriott certificate mean?
