After speaking with Marriott Guest Services on the crediting of my 15 nights for having the Black card ($85 annual fee), since I now have it for almost a year, they told me to call the Visa credit card company. The CS person told me that they bill everyone who has this card on July 1. Is this true? i find this very hard to believe. I got the card in Septembr 2011, yet they billed me on July 1, 2012---not even a full year. They also changed my annual service date from August (on the silver credit card) to September (now that I have the black card).
When does your Black card annual fee get billed?
