I have 41 Elite Rewards nights on my account but only 137,000 points. How do I redeem these 41 nights or are these nights calculated according to a 10k point stay per night? Whenever I look at redeeming my points for future stays, I only see my total points not my elite nights. What gives and can I get the actual 41 elite night stays?
I am assuming when you say Elite Rewards nights you are referring to the 'Nights Earned' that you see in the activity page of Marriott.com when you log in. Elite Rewards nights are nothing more than a running total of paid nights you have stayed at Marriott properties. They are compiled to get silver, gold and platinum status for the year.
There are two numbers in your 'Activity page'. One is nights for the current year and the other is lifetime nights. The Lifetime' nights compile towards lifetime status levels for silver, gold and platinum.
Hope this helps.
To add to Tef and Anadyr, this is your score toward achieving status: 10 for silver, 50 for gold, 75 for platinum.
You acquire these reward nights by either a payed night's stay at a marriot property or, if you carry the Marriott Visa, through both your annual renewal and through spending.
Example, if you carry the Premier Visa, on your anniversary, you are credited 15 reward nights, toward your status achievement. That already puts you past silver and on your way to gold. Also, you get one reward night's credit for every $3,000 in spending.
If you host an event or meeting at a Marriott property and contract with your marriott rewards number, you get 10 nights credit for each event.
But again, points and reward nights are not the same. You accumulate points, which you can use for rewards lodging or for merchandise. You accumulate rewards nights, toward status.
