Note that some targeted promos have a variable expiration date depending when the member activates the promo, which under certain circumstances could allow you to choose the timeframe for the promo that is most advantageous for your planned travel. Read the T&Cs about expiration timeline carefully before activating any targeted promo.

Same here, 2 stays in Jan and no offers at all, current PPE.

About to switch my future business stays to either Hyatt/HH as I don't need 4pm check out anyway. Would probably match or fast track to either.

I hope the Marriott Lurker(s) can come here and comment what should those (like me) that got 3N (no email, nothing in App, and none promo listed on web) should do to get "something" register, whether we like the promo or not... as something is better than nothing.

For data point, I am LTP, PPE, 19 nights this year.

I'm guessing a lot of the people here are legacy Marriott as opposed to legacy SPG. SPG used to run these targeted promos about once a quarter with no rhyme or reason as to who was targeted, at least that we could figure out. Some people would receive 2 targeted promos while others still hadn't received one. Then they had a targeted promo that swept a lot of people who had not been targeted before and was irritatingly called the MeToo promo just to stir the pot a bit more.

So there really is nothing you can do except fume as others get offered great promos while you get none and hope maybe next quarter, you'll be targeted. Lurkers won't be able to help here based on several years of "targeted promo" experience with SPG.

Bit weird to exclude so many members, isn't? Can't remember it was this much back in the SPG days like for example last year.

I'm LTPPE and got nothing.

It would have been nice if Marriott had come out and thanked everyone for sticking with them through that awful merger/transition, and offered any member double points or double nights, their choice, as a thank you promotion. Instead, we get targeted promotions that exclude many of Marriott's best customers.

But they think the merger went really well and it didnt cause any issues to people that is worth mentioning!

Nothing here. It's a touch insulting.

Kind of amazing to see the number of people not targeted. I learned a new label... 3N. That's me as well.
