Have you received a E-card when your birthday is coming?

My birthday is in this month.

At the beginning, I expected MR would send me a E-card to greet, but they didn't...

However, I received a E-card from one properties which I once stayed.

Have you ever received one when you have your birthday?

If not, may I suggest Marriott add this feature to its program? It's a tiny improvement, but makes me much better.

Thank you

I recently received an e-card from Marriott on my birthday, along with a link to a 'present'.

The present (once I confirmed my identitiy) was 1 elite night credit.

Thanks Marriott!

My birthday was a few weeks ago and I got this same e-mail and elite night credit. Maybe the OP doesn't have their b-day on file with MR?

I got one too. My link lead to a page that said "Opps, there was a problem...". I don't know why it didn't work automatically, but I sent an e-mail to customer service and my account was promptly updated with 1 EQN.^

Evidently not, as my birthday is this week and I haven't gotten an email... "oops" or otherwise.

Several years ago (when I first joined FT actually) I received a very nice personal note from the Concierge at the time...(Drew)

Same for me...

I got the same on my Bday a few days ago, however, I was a tad disappointed. I have 468 elite nights this year...do I really need 1 more? I'd rather have something like 1000 points.

Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the effort...but would like to see an option where you can choose a free night or a few points.

Many moons ago I filled in a form online, which asked for my b'day and Mr HPs and our wedding anniversary. I have NEVER had any recognition for this from Marriott Rewards ...

I just had a b-day last week and i got that same email and had to chuckle when the 1 elite night was added to my current balance of 224 nights this year.

Kind of a gift on scale of when my Aunt Tilly sends me a quarter. HA

I did appreciate the gesture ... any recognition is good.

Question

Does this email come on your birthday as mine is coming up soon and haven't seen anything yet. Also, I went into my account to make sure my birth date is listed, but I see no place to add it.

I am scrambling for elite nights this year so anything helps!

Happy to report that I received my email with 1 elite night credit this morning on my birthday!

I hesitate to ask, but is this another US resident only benefit?
As far as I know, the personal profile details for UK and perhaps other countries members does not allow for providing your Birth(day) date.
I have certainly never yet received an email or credit.

I received the same e-mail with the same elite night offer today (on my birthday).

I guess it's too bad that my birthday is so close to the end of the year, and I've already done all my needed elite qualifying nights for the year...
