As a near lifetime platinum member, I've just learned today that using a travel industry rate will result in getting a no night credit and no points on my account for the stay. I did book, stay, and spend money at the Marriott properties, but because of the "rate", I will not receive the night credit or points accumulated during the stay. This is crazy. My choice and money to stay were welcome but no rewards from Marriott. Maybe time to cut my long ties with Marriot!!
