I know this has been discussed before but since it has resurfaced, I'd like to offer a suggestion. Why can't we combine out certs (whether through promos or Chase cards) and add up the categories to make 1 night at a Cat 7 or 2 at a Cat 6. There is no longer any reason for me to follow promotions or try to use my free Chase night. I can't.MR
I agree why can't they let us combine the 4 and 5 certificates ? Frequently, the cat. 4 is no where near what we are going to desire to stay even it if we use them and lose some points at least let us stay at a Cat 7 . Most of us don't go to Cat 4 we got the certificates by going to at least a Cat 6 hotal.
You would think! Since many of us (as my recent experiences have proven) can't use even Cat 5 certificate much of the time, why not allow us to accumulate certs as either promotions of Chase Rewards over a 2 year period then split them up for free hotels as we choose. I assume Chase is paying a tidy sum for Marriott's business -- Amex certainly is for Delta.
The community is certainly chock-full of good ideas, so while there may be business or financial realities that delay or sometimes prevent seemingly simple suggestions, I can promise your feedback and suggestions are seen. I've scheduled some time to review a number of suggestions like this and will report back as appropriate.
