Which cities did you see this for?

Could it be a glitch? Try again and let me know if it's still happening. I'm seeing normal cat 3 and 4 rates for each respective hotel category. I doubt it is a cookies or ISP location thing.

Sounds like searching for 2 nights - that would generate 37.5k for a cat 3 with 1 peak night and 1 mid night. Marriott shows total points for a multi night point search but individual night cost for a cash booking.

BINGO! That's where I was going wrong, I was seeing 37,500 as the nightly rate. glad I didn't book the Cat 2, 20 miles out. Thanks joeags! and all!

The top up feature - is it planned only for the 35K cert to be topped up to 50K, or will it allow the 50K cert to be topped up to 65K as well?

Looks like this feature has been activated!

How much are the Certificates really worth?

Is anyone able to post a website or app screenshot that shows how this 'top-off' process works ?

Perhaps I should have tried this before posting that top ups are now active, because I certainly can’t replicate it. I must have misunderstood the thread I referenced. Or maybe DFWsakp can enlighten us when he/she’s back online.

Add Points to Certificates (Up to 15K)

It was announced that in April we would be able to add up to 15k to a certificate for rooms. Has anyone seen when that will begin? Will that be available online or via call only?

I was told on the phone yesterday that it would happen at the end of April.
