If a friend books a room for me as a gift using Marriott Reward points, can I get the credit for those nights towards my elite status?
Great question...erc or bejacob would you like to help answer this one?
Enjoy the day,
Well, I'm neither one of them, but can still provide the answer:
No, you can't.
When another MR member books a room using his points he always books it from his account so credit will always be his. He can still add your name on the booking for you to be able to check in, but still the booking is under his account and so will the nights.
However, he can transfer points to your account (up to 50,000 a year) and then you can use them as you like and get the nights credit yourself.
