I have been using Marriott Travel Package in the past.
This year with over 750,000 points in my account, I still have to pay over $5,000 of flight cost in addition to all the costs that accrued the 750,000 like staying at different Marriott hotels just to gather up enough points for my family. We have four people in our family and in the past I neve had to reach in my pocket to pay extra for airfare.
What is wrong with this picture? 750,000 gives me over 240,000 miles of airfare. Delta wants 640,000 miles and united wants 450,000 miles.
Has anyone had a recent experience like this? Please post.
