Circling back with thanks to you both. Called Ritz Carlton, they connected me to Bonvoy rep, who seemed quite knowledgeable. She couldn’t see why they took the points, but she credited me back the...

When is cert attached and is it normal to have points deducted first?

Just made a reservation at a 50,000 point hotel. It looks like Marriott deducted 50,000 points even though I want to use my annual free night certificate. “This reservation has e-certificates.” Is it...

Appears intentional to me. And unnecessary to call (although as mentioned already, could be a good idea). Cheers.

I think the free night certificates don’t post until maybe 8-10 weeks after anniversary (so Marriott can be sure the annual fee is paid?). Ymmv. Cheers.

Coincidentally, I just upgraded my card and asked the rep today. He didn’t know, so he put me on hold and came back saying, yes. So, that’s what I’ll do. Cheers.

We took Uber’s when we stayed for 5 nights at Penha Longa (to and from Sintra, Lisbon, Cascais, etc). Good rates, sometimes a bit of a wait. Enjoy!

No worries. Ideally, the forum should be for helping one another, and sharing experiences and tips.

Gentle suggestion: try “Search this Thread” (“seat assignment”) before asking if possible.
In an effort to be a bit more helpful, I would say, yes to your first question and no to your second. Going...

I typically do the latter, immediately after booking, and it always works. Probably safer, but I’m curious to see if you decide on the former. Good luck.

Fyi, it’s been worth it to me, except that notifications (flight time changes, etc.) go to their travel agent, and I don’t get notified. Almost missed a flight due to that. Makes it much less...

Just curious...no offer for an option of 30k MR points? Easily more valuable if you know how to use them. Just look at the recent offers (I know, one of them is mine). Anyway, congrats if you’re...

Just curious, I assume you had to agree yes, it was for a ticket? And, I assume you knew they don’t reimburse for tickets?

Well, may be a “YMMV” but I have never had a problem with Alaska. Always posts without having to call. If it didn’t post, personally I’m comfortable in taking the view that Premier seating is a “seat...

Not yet this year, but I always do it. Give it a few more days, imho. It should post. “Seat assignment fees” qualify. Call or secure chat...this should be a slam dunk. Cheers.

Agreed. The only time I have ever had to call and ask, I referred to it as a “seat assignment fee,” which is specifically mentioned as being eligible. No problem at all to get reimbursed. Cheers.

You have to call in to request the credit. Do you plan to lie about the nature of the charge? Really? Cheers.

Agreed. Can also be good for non bonus spend with the AmEx Blue Business Plus (I value at $.015 to $.02 per MR point, 2 points/$, so easily more than Plastiq cost). Ymmv. Cheers.

Out of curiosity, did you receive and accept a retention offer last year? I ask because I’ve heard unless it’s been maybe 13 months, they typically won’t make another now. Of course, there may be...
