When it should post:
  • The stay bonus should post with each stay on which you earn it.
  • The brand bonus does not post with each stay, and according to what we've heard will likely not post until some time after the promo ends.

What kind of stays count:
  • Only stays on which you normally earn Marriott points count.
  • Award stays (including cash + points stays) do not count.
  • Third-party stays on which you don't earn Marriott points do not count.

Go ahead, earn endlessly: Get 2,000 bonus points per stay beginning with your second stay and an additional 2,000 points for each new brand you stay with.

Like others I was shorted 2000 points. I have emailed customer service to get it adjusted.

This mess is normal for me now. I bet I have to contact them to correct postings for stays about 1/3 of the time. The mistake is almost always in their favor, too. Rather than call and get put on hold all the time, I just email now.

Seems they are auto-correcting the stay bonus points deficit - I received 2K additional today without having to complain.

No complaints here. I was due 4,000 total for three different brands and only received 2,000 points. I called a bit ago the agent added 4,000 points thinking since I stayed at three different brands, I was due 6,000 total instead of 4,000. Then today, I received the additional 2,000 as well!

The MR Agent said that the system is mistakenly counting Marriotts and JW's as the same brand. So if you stayed at both those brands during the promotion, be sure to double-check your bonus!

Same for me, but fortunately it was a quick easy fix via email in less than an hour. It was probably the quickest email response I've ever gotten.

Oh-so-thank-U, rowdypfeifer #381 for reporting the JW vs. regular Marriott issue to us! Even though it does not affect me, because I did not stay at a JW!
