Anyone have any information about the annual "Get 10 points per dollar on Marriott gift card purchases"? The promotion usually comes out at about this time of the year, last year with a $2500 maximum.
Hmm...replies are all gone and still no answer to the original question. I guess that means there will be no annual bonus points for gift card purchases. Would've been easy just to say so....
The replies are over in the More Like This column where the post was poised as a question. But you're right, no answer and since we have demonstrated proof that merb actually does follow up and dig out answers (as she stated she would twice in the link, 11/4 and 11/14) I draw the same conclusion as you - it's dead and they are not going to tell us (as well as giving their media team the same run around).
Somebody is going to justifiably be upset if they start buying gift cards as holiday gifts and then discover there is a bonus offer and if there's not, then I agree with you; since it's been asked, why not just inform us, The Insiders ?
Oh well, this is a similar approach they took with the gift cheque death and it lead to some strong feelings. I'm also finding more and more 'surprises' that they are of course, entitled to do (like service charges) but share no information about it. Once again, we're on the short end of the financial equation and it shows.
Never heard about this promotion - maybe there is a discrimination against those of us on the "left coast" (LOL)
Seriously though, sounds like a great deal for us spending every other night of the year at a Marriott!
That used to be one of the benefits of Insiders, we often heard of the seldom heavily promoted offers. Now between killing former deals and low keying those few that remain, it takes detective work to avoid being left out. Several of the 'deals' are sniffed out by an Insider and shared, so if you ever see anything, don't assume others know it, because we probably don't, so please post (especially any LA Live offers!).
2014 was not a banner year for the rewards program Increased point requirements, loss of gift cheques, now loss of gift certificate promo.
2013 was bad enough...please don't project into 2014 yet..lol
