I just received my Marriott Signature Visa today and already booked my family's Christmas vacation! My question is how exactly does this points or dollar thing work.  I know you get 5X points at Marriot, 2X points on airlines, car rental and restaurants, and one point on all other spending. For instance if I spend:

$1,000 at Marriot

$5,000 at restaurants and airlines

$3,000 everywhere else


Total of 18,000 points this month or $9,000.  So I will get 3 Elite Night credits AND 18,000 points or is it one or the other? Hope this makes sense.
