So I just opened a Marriott Boundless card and should be receiving it by Thursday of this week. Upon activation of the card, you are supposed to receive a 15 elite night bonus towards status with 15 nights being awarded every year by March 1st afterwards. I really need these credits so that I can hit Platinum this year and have it for next year as I will be traveling a ton for work and would like the benefits. The only issue is its close to the Dec. 31st reset and Chase/Marriott say that it can take up to 60 days for the nights to be placed on a Marriott account. A few questions... Does anyone have an experience similar to mine? If so what was the outcome? Will I receive the 15 nights for this year on top of the nights I get next year if the opening bonus doesn't get awarded until after the 31st? Will Marriott retroactively give me these nights towards status if they don't hit my account until after the 31st?
Let me know!
