The month of May is a heavy travel month for me, starting tonight for 5 nights in LA. I was extremely disappointed and surprised that no points promotions exist for the entire month! I called the Rewards CS line, and they confirmed; NOTHING. I guess I will be moving my May travels to SPG this month unless anyone has anything that I am not aware of for this month. Thanks for any suggestions.
You're right. My next promotion covers stays from June through August. I'm staying at the Ritz in Boston for a couple of nights this month and I'm pained that those nights won't apply to the promotion. If the Community Manager could explain why Marriott doesn't start a new promotion to begin when the last one ends with no gap, it would be appreciated, as least by me.
Perhaps the econamy has gotten better enough where Marriott feels that they don't need to offer us as much. I was not impressed with the summer promotion that they offered me. I just need 5 nights to retain gold with Hilton and will make sure I get those. I also have gold with SPG and they are good to me too. Marriott will get less of my business in the near future. Loyality workd both ways.
