Who has used Vacations by Marriott? If you have, please share your story. I have found them to be a total rip off. 1) Nowhere on the site does it say they are a third party vendor unless you read T&C. They don't state at ALL that you do NOT earn elite nights or points for the stay, eventhough they adsvertise "Earn Marriott Reward Points" on the homepage. They just give you 5,000 points, 4-6 weeks after the trip is over. 2) The flights are lowest fare possible and more expensive than booking direct with the repsective airline. Avoid this site and be sure to book on your own directly. Not worth it.
