Things have definitely changed with new Reward Program

I no longer feel like a valued member of the Marriott Rewards Program as I used to.  Mega Bonus Program - have to follow up to get points applied and now so many more rules than ever before to earn points.  Incidentals charged to room at Residence Inn are not point worthy?  What's up with that - I never knew that.  And certificates are now points based but cannot be combined with earned points.  Why not???? That doesn't make any sense to me.  Why can't the points value on the certificates be combined with earned points.  Yet another way the program has been watered down and no longer advantageous as it once was.  Sorry that I have wasted so many years/money to earn lifetime Platinum Elite.  All those years staying at Marriott hotels and for what?  Like others I guess I will being reverting to my Hilton Honors program.
