I often recommend the Marriott to friends and coworkers for travel. When I book for them under my rewards number, I never receive any credit, points or nights towards my account?!!!!
I'm guessing somewhere in the terms and conditions there is an answer, but I don't have it off the cuff.
In my experience, I've done that for family (father and wife) without the issue you've had apparently. I've received the night credit and points, but also the bill. Perhaps the bill is the sticking point?
As long as you pay for the bill, you will get the points.
I believe that you cannot earn Elite Night Credits; for that you'd have to stay in the room yourself.
Also, the coworker that is staying at the hotel normally does not have access to your elite benefits, only you. Not 100% sure though.
Thanks for confirmation @yogib, sounds like there isn't any real benefit for footing someone else's bill unless you really really need the nights. I can think of a few who might do that if they're feeling charitable and want to hit a certain status...but not me personally.
Yeah, I am definitely not paying for the rooms. However, I am booking them and entering my rewards number.
That would be really lame not getting any rewards, because I can simply take all the business to another company that would grant me the rewards!!
Pretty sure most loyalty programs don't allow this (airlines def).
hyatt doesn't allow this for sure.
How about reading the Terms & Conditions that you agreed with when you signed in the Rewards program? Here are the first three paragraphs, you may want to go and read the rest:
Your expectations are LAME!
