I've been a casual Marriott Rewards Member for quite a while and have never visited the Insiders portion of the site. I must say that I am extremely impressed with the amount of knowledge and willingness Insiders have to help each other out.
I have what I think is a simple question about the merge. It seems to me that my points after the merge are going to be worth approx. half of the current value. We usually stay at a Category 8 hotel that costs 40,000 pts/nt. With the merger it looks like a category 8 is going to costs 85,000 pts/nt. I called MR number and the girl helping was very nice but seemed to be reading the same email I was and said it looked like I was right. Am I missing something?
