The releases from yesterday somewhat suggest that nothing at all will happen on August 1st in the Marriott systems. It's possible that you could call between the 1st and 17th and redeem a TP under current rules.

One of the interviews posted by one of the bloggers suggests the big IT cutover day is that Saturday the 18th.

The only thing that appears to be happening on the 1st is the Amex gets nerfed by 1/3rd. But that's Amex's system, not Marriott's.

That said, I'd probably still redeem this week if I was planning on doing one more. As we approach the 17th (and beyond that for some period of time too), it's simply not going to be possible to talk to a human at Marriott.
