WITH ALL THE POSTINGS ABOUT THE DETERIORATION OF BENEFITS AND VALUE OF POINTS I SEE FEW POSTINGS SUGGESTING THE POSSIBILITY OF ADDITIONAL BENEFITS.
YOUR IDEAS ON NEW/ADDED BENEFITS THAT MARRIOTT COULD AWARD PLATINUM ELITE LEVEL MEMBERS WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED BY ME AND OTHER INTERESTED MEMBERS.
I will begin with an idea that came to my (simple) mind:
Offer MARRIOTT GIFT CARDS at a lower rate for Platinum Elite Members. This would be a wonderful acknowledgement by Marriott's appreciation of their most valued (?) customers.
