On another board, there is currently a conversation that is confusing me. I've asked for clarification, but maybe this is a better board for information....
Is the following allowed? An MR member stays enough to receive two certificates, then makes reservations under his spouse's name/MR# and stays enough nights to get two additional certificates. The spouse will not be staying at the hotel. People on the other board are of the opinion that since Marriott hotels will allow one spouse to check in prior to the other spouse getting there, this is an acceptable loophole. Others (myself included) look on this as stealing. If this is acceptable, please let us know so that we can change our staying habits to earn more certs.
It seems unacceptable to me, but there are people on the other board that claim this is an acceptable loophole to the program rules, and that Marriott is okay with this.
Thank you in advance for the information.
