All-Inclusive Reward Discontinued at Marriott

With no advanced notice given, one can no longer use Marriott Rewards points to redeem for all-inclusive rewards as of October 17, 2011, as that option has officially been eliminated. However, one can still redeem Marriott Rewards points for travel package rewards.

The all-inclusive rewards package — which could only be booked in conjunction with an award stay at the same property — was for select Marriott resort properties in the Caribbean, Mexico and Costa Rica, available in two tiers and an option for five or seven nights. Most food and beverages were included for two adults and two children 12 years of age and under. For example, five nights of food and beverage would cost 70,000 Marriott Rewards points at Tier 1, in addition to the Marriott Rewards points required for the room.

Existing reservations booked prior to October 17, 2011 for the all-inclusive rewards will be honored. The reward does have to be requested and issued on one’s Marriott Rewards account by January 17, 2012.

Still, FlyerTalk members are angry about having no notice or advance warning about what some perceive to be a significant devaluation of Marriott Rewards points.
