How often does they update peak/off peak pricing? For example if January or Feb is currently showing Peak, will that change? Or has it already been decided that those dates will be peak

They claim to update weekly.

Do you the annual benefits for Platinum and Titanium once they reach 50 and 75 need to be selected before January 1st, or can they be selected afterwards?

"You must select your Choice Benefit(s) by January 15 following the year in which you qualified; if you don’t, Marriott will automatically select five Suite Night Awards for you."

40K has most value.

U can score confirmed SNA if that's valuable to you.

Not sure if this is the right thread to pose this question:

I am booking a hotel for 6 nights (Rome, Italy) and using 320k Marriott points (Cat 7).  Unfortunately, I only have Gold status which means my chances of upgrade are slim/none.  Is there any way to pay somebody who is titantium or platinum to get an upgrade?

For the 7 Night Marriott Certificates, Do you have to use the Cert by the expiration date or just apply it to a reservation by then?

If I'm a no show on an award stay, the points go back automatically into my account?
Do they wait until they charge the room rate before depositing or is it automatic?

Is there a good reason to keep both the Marriot and SPG cards?
