So, I emailed Marriott and asked why I had not been offered a promotional offer as many of my fellow co-workers/Marriott Reward members. This is the response that I got. So, apparently according to the Marriott representative, it was based on those making reservations directly through Marriott.com. I do make a majority of my reservations through my work travel site but I also make many directly through Marriott.com so I am not sure I really buy this answer. I am a Lifetime Platinum Premier member with close to 1600 total nights. Thoughts?
