No existing Travel Package certificate is losing value in terms of points and, with the new Free Night Award Chart that goes live today, 70% of our hotels either stayed at the same redemption rate threshold or moved down. As we structured the conversion chart, we considered the introduction of peak and off-peak redemption rates, which will be introduced in early 2019. This means that if you have an existing Category 9 certificate, which converts to Category 6 starting today, holders will still be able to attach the certificate to a stay when redemption rates within that category are at their highest.

Please let us know if you have any questions and we’ll do our best to answer.

It would be nice if MR did refund 30k points to those who bought one level higher and still get the same category as someone who has one level lower. Would be fair IMO. Also wish we could do a one-time upgrade (if not downgrade) to get to a higher category hotel if needed.

I think the above 2 requests are reasonable.
