Ah, this makes so much sense to me now!! The line in the Terms & Conditions about it only applying to the year earned... I read that as: if I reach Titanium with the Double Elite Night Credits in 2019, it would only count for 2019!

I actually fired off an email to Marriott yesterday asking if these count for 2020 status!

But this interpretation makes so much more sense, that they only count for current year earnings, not lifetime totals. Why don't they convey that more clearly? Just write - "Elite Night Credits earned during this promotion don't count for lifetime totals".

I mentioned I got it before, but didn't mention I was registered in Europe.
I have 33 nights right now, but have 20 planned in the promotion period, so that will take me 73....

Question about double nights promo

I was targeted and signed up for the double elite nights promo, for stays "now through June 30th, 2019". My question is, would a stay from June 30 to July 1 get double credit ? The stay would begin during the promotional period but end afterwards.

Thanks!

No. You would have to check in before Jun 30 (ie Jun 29 or earlier).

I’ve now received a free night certificate as part of the targeted offer. However, I do not seem to be able to use it. Doing some searching, I’ve read that Marriott Rewards would in the past allow you to start a points booking and then select the certificate at the last moment before booking - I don’t seem to have that option on the current site (it just states that 35,000 points will be deducted from my account).

Any help would be appreciated.

My offer today:

Double elite night credits on paid nights (3 month duration ending on 30 Sep)
  • Register today.
  • Stay at any of our 6,700 participating hotels and resorts worldwide now through 09/30/2019.
  • Get double Elite Night Credits - thatís one Elite Night Credit plus one additional Elite Night Credit for all your eligible nights.
Registered Members can earn double Elite Night Credits on all eligible paid nights consumed during the promotionís earning period.

I have a stay booked a 4-nights stay from 29 Sep to 2 Oct.

Am I correct to assume that this will be counted as 4 EQC + 2 EQC (for 29-30 Sep) for a total of 6 EQC?
