Just received one free elite night credit from Marriott Rewards for my birthday. Thank you Marriott! I am still 9 days away from maintaining my status (and I don't travel on business) with only 4 months to go, so the one night credit really means something to me.
If you haven't already entered your birthday on your Marriott Rewards profile, please do so in order to get your free elite night credit on your birthday. Some here on Insiders say you also have to contact customer support and have them enter you in the birthday promotion. To clarify, the elite night credit is not an actual free night certificate. It is a credit of one night towards elite status only, but still, something of value if you are not already Lifetime Platinum status.
Again, thanks Marriott!
