I ended up earning all three Summer Promo bonus nights, now the problem is in using them for a trip later this year. Anyone know the proper code to enter, or is this a phone reservation only process?
You beat me! From past experience, they put the certificates in your account. When you make a reservation using points, if you have a cert that qualifies, you are asked if you want to use it. Say yes and that is all there is to it.
Ding ding ding!
The only thing is if you exceed the number of available free nights, it reverts wholly to points. No option for combining them online, so it's either two reservations or just call the PP line…
I guess that I never ran into that. It is good to know.
You're on the right track. Congrats on all the freebies.
One good thing I noticed about the certificates is that the expiration date is a year instead of the usual 6 months on others. Whoopee! I hope the year time frame is a new standard for all the free night cert's!
When I called to change my promotion, I asked about the 1 year and was told that so many called to extend them, they just gave more time.
fyi, while points are transferable, the certs are not.
At least, that is what I was told (Plat line) when trying to transfer a Cert to my mother.
That's how I understand certs, also.
