Can't find a Marriott rep that knows anything about these packages or how to book them. Any suggestions?
That doesn't make sense

You're trying to buy one or attach one to a reservation?

They say 1-2 weeks.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

What is the deal on the 1-5 attached to calgary airport? Will they allow it to be transferred to any new Cat 5 hotel?

How would anyone know the answer to that question. It's obvious that that is not Marriott's intention. If your question is, will there be an IT glitch that allows that, the code probably hasn't even been written yet
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Mine actually posted this morning. IIRC, AS has a day of the week that posts all these partner miles.

I changed a few reservations and each time the certificate came off. This was done online. In one try I tried converting to a cash stay in hopes to get all the points refunded and in the other I simply changed the dates of the 7 day stay. So no go each.

In a few months I will try to do it on the phone with some other stays. Maybe an agent can force these kind of changes without loosing the "increased" value of the certs.

i had purchased a 5 nights  travel pkg for 345 points and attached it to a reservation at  Domes of Elounda, Autograph Collection in June 2019. I made it on Aug 17 '18  and i received an email confirmation of the purchase of the pkg and confirmation of the hotel stay now i see they sent me another email that they cancelled the pkg order upon my request on the same day as i ordered it. i never ask them to cancel what should i do now??

looks like marriot has made a bit of improvement on their devalued travel package and added 10k miles  https://www.marriott.com/loyalty/redeem/travel/packages.mi
