Hi! I'm fairly new to marriot rewards, and i am embarrassed to say this, but i cannot figure out how to earn points. I understand that i get 1 point per dollar for staying at a marriott hotel, but i am confused about the categories. How do i know which category is the best to stay at? I am assuming the higher the category the better? Also, i have the credit card so i am silver elite. When my poiints reset this year, it says i have 2 bonus nights. Those are not free nights, but rather 2 nights counting toward the total i need to stay at silver status? Is there any pointers you can give me to get some good travel deals? I appreciate y'alls advice. Any help will be greatly appreciated!!!
