Points for Advance Purchase

I have booked a Marriott Hotel for December.  As it was an advance purchase rate, I have paid up front.  When will I get the Reward Points, now or after check out?

    To my knowledge even if you book ahead they don't charge your card til the actual reservation date and the points will come after that. Or at least that was my experience with my resent stay with my advance. Hope this helps!

      Hi Shannon,

       

      You were lucky.  They have already charged my card as it is an Advance Purchase.  I think it is possibly up to the hotel when they charge.  But thanks very much for your input.

    Tommo781,

     

    You won't get any reward points or nights credited to your account until you complete the stay regardless of whether it is advance purchase or not.

    Hi Merb,

     

    We live in the UK and always go to London for a few days before Xmas.  We are going to West India Quay.  We have been there before and love it.  The advance purchase rate we snapped up was a lot less than half of the normal rate!  If I booked it now, even at advance rate it would be 80% more.  What a bargain.
