Choice benefits can now be selected on the website. Well, it's working for me at least. Good luck!
I picked the 1 free night for my Platinum Premier benefit and even though it says it can be used at any hotel, it can only be used for rooms that are up to 40,000 points.
I'm seeing the awards now too, but I haven't pulled the trigger just yet.
Out of curiosity, what is the expiry of SNAs if chosen as a choice benefit? I've been an MR person forever, so I'm not especially familiar with SNAs, but the idea of potential suite upgrades for vacations is tempting... depending on how long they're good for. I would assume since acquiring them is based on current year qualifying nights, they'd be valid this year and next year (assuming Dec 31 2019 or Feb 28 2020).
I hit 50 nights this year to renew platinum for next year but cannot even see the Choice Benefit module. communitymanagers, are certain accounts simply unable to see this yet? Thanks!
Thank you for updating us! I just completed the 50 and 75 choice. Wham...my free night eCert is already loaded into my Account. That was fast. Good to know some things are working great! Well done Marriott!
Thanks trippinbillies40, worked for me too. Suite nights said to show in account in 48hrs, free night cert showed immediately in account after selecting.
Tried on laptop and phone. Couldn't get it to process. Got the error message after hitting confirm. Oh well.....
Just discovered that even though I made it to platinum this year, I have just 30 actual stayed nights - not the 50 nights I would need to qualify for a Choice Benefit. Bummed that I hadn't read it more carefully beforehand.
Ordered two sets of the SNAs. Hope I can use them next year. I have to try,
betterdays, for this benefit, an EQN is an EQN. I have 50 nights, but only much less actual stay nights than you. And, though the Choice Benefit doesn't appear in my account, I've now figured out that you can access it by going to this website: Marriott Rewards and logging into your account. You should be able to access them that way, as have I.
Now a question I have for everyone else is if I choose the SNAs, how long are they valid for once issued? Thanks
OK, I know I'm a little slow, but ... what are Choice Benefits ... and where "on the website" should I be looking ... and, uh, gee, what else am I missing?
Thanks for your clarification and insights!!!
Update: I found it, and got to choose (50, and then 75).... How exciting!!!!
Hmmm... What should I make of this?
Do you think it's just harmonization glitchiness that I just need to wait out?
ssindc, it wasn't showing up in my account. I had to go here: Marriott Rewards to make my selection. Of course, now, I'm unable to see the certificates in my account.
This is strange! Probably just glitches. Maybe give it a couple of days to shake out? Or give them a call?
I chose SNAs for my platinum gift, and the expiration date is Dec. 31, 2019.
50 and 75 redeemed. Thanks for the heads up.
It says "The more you stay, the more benefits you earn. Once you stay at least 50 eligible nights, you'll get to choose one of these Annual Choice Benefits:"
By stating "stay" it seems they mean actual butt in bed nights I would think??? They really should have clarified further in T&C but I couldn't find.
I’ll look at them in a few days. Thanks for the heads-up trippinbillies40!
platlife AFAIK an eligible night is a paid night, butt in the bed.
If you choose the 5 nights credit - does that count for the current year or the the coming year?
If you're LTPP, do you need any qualifying nights? I assume since I no longer need to worry about 75 nights to maintain Platinum that these extra benefits are automatically awarded. Is this wrong? Could communitymanagers please clarify?
Hi, I have 75 nights this year after merging both my accounts. I had 64 nights on MR and 11 from SPG.
In my MR accounts, I only see a 50 night choice award and no 75 night choice award. When I called MR Guest Services they said, I need 75 nights after Aug 18th merger which did not make much sense to me.
Can anyone advise? Do I need to first redeem 50 nights and then will get option for 75 nights choice? As I was under impression you get 2 choice 50 and 75 after completion of 75 nights
You only get the 2nd after you redeem the first. That being said my account showed me that I had both available.
Yep, works. Picked 5 SNA for the 50 for now. I am not sure how to apply them to an existing reservation yet.
Still unavailable for me. Tried on 3 different browsers as well as phone. Anyone had luck using mac/iphone? Just wondering if this is a windows/mac thing....
You need butt-in-bed nights to get SNAs, otherwise as LTPP you get the other benefits without stays. Look at the asterisk. This is to give Lifetime members incentive to stay
