1) Seems to me that not a single Ambassador member got this gift card. (Yes, I know a lot of Tits and Plats did not get it either.) If anyone is Amb Elite and has got it, can you let us know? Also, I don't recall anyone on FT getting $100 gift card (even though some of the blogs have mentioned it). If you did get $100, can you give us your status level?

2) If you're not planning on spending your gift card in the near future, or if you lose a lot of things, I suggest registering your gift card at https://gifts.marriott.com/. If you misplace the gift card/email, you can report it lost and get another one.

If you read upthread, there’s a blog post which shows what Ambassadors will get. Apparently, their award redemptions will be refunded by one night on a award stay. Also, there will be a better local amenity on arrival.

Pretty sure that is not every ambassador. It was positioned as a "surprise and delight" type of thing...not a sure thing.
And as I don't have an award stay booked or contemplated at the moment, would seem kinda dopey instead of a gift card that I could use during one of my many paid stays.

Titanium & LT Plat with 34 nights this year - no email. I have yet to be surprised and delighted above the normal occasional room upgrades.

Titanium Elite with 83 nights this year and no email.

Spend about $3500 / month at Marriott and really a $50 gift card is barely a gesture. ...., I paid $75 for a drink and meal (Lamb, mmmmmm yummy) last night. LOL.

I am not knocking it off, I just decided to "chime-in"..

Oh, I completely agree. But then a $50 Marriott gift card costs Marriott far less than $50, too. I wasn't trying to compare the gifts financially, just saying I thought the Ambassador gift was a nice, unexpected surprise.

I got $30. I'm a measly Silver and that's only because I used to have the Chase card until about three months ago. A total of two paid nights in the past year (plus seven award nights). Used to stay at Marriott a lot more (still have about 250,000 points) but business travel is way down from prior years. Even so, I was never more than Gold.

By now people should come to the conclusion that this is totally randomly selected and has nothing to do with your past / current stay record. There are Silvers and Golds received the $30 being reported all over net for example.

For example I got the $50 as Titanium but all my stays since Q4 2018 are point redemption with only 1 pay night this Apr, at a Fairfield JFK. A friend, a Titanium, also has only point redemption the past 6 months, she also got the $50.

I've read a large number of posts here and on a couple other boards and to me it seems like people who have generally stayed fewer nights or maybe less than in the past are getting these. Just my guess. Not at all sure what the real criteria is. Not random though.
