Did the noise around the edges create some stress?
It's sad to hear when anyone has cancer. My only positive outlook here, is maybe he'll step down, and someone with a brain will step in. You should be in good health Arne.

should be on your Marriott account under unused certificates. title should be "Amex consumer FNA up to 35k points"

Where would I see that? Will it pop up on the main "Overview" page like it used to before the merger?

I logged in  I keep waiting for it to show up so I can close my cc...

A friend just called to convert his old 7 night cert to a new one. In true Bonvoy style they accidentally refunded him 270k points and issued a new cert. Is there a risk for him to use the cert (and risk a rep catching the mistake) before transferring out the points?

..... most likely wont in the near future, they are just so sloppy at stuff!

Many times you'll need to clear your  browser cache and cookies to show the actual amount of points on your account. Opening and closing your browser wont help. The app is better at this.

Meh, don't give up just yet. Don't count on it either, but there's hope.

If you get upgraded and that is usually likely if there are available rooms and you have elite status.
Asking never hurts.

Hi all,

Iím having an issue with a cat 1-5 certificate I made a reservation ( before we knew anything) at the Calgary hotel in Canada as per Dans advice since it was a cat 5 hotel. I just cancelled it and marriot put it back as a cat 1-5 again instead of the new categories. Anyone have this issue and can advise me how to fix this?
