Cosmopolitan Identity Points & Marriott Rewards Partnership

I just came across an article in USA Today about a new arrangement between The Cosmopolitan Hotel and Marriott Rewards.  Members of the Cosmopolitan Identity program can now convert their points into Marriott Reward Points and vice versa.  I think this is a great move.  I really like the Cosmopolitan but do not stay there enough to accumulate enough Identity Points for redemption.  It will be nice to turn those unused points into Marriott reward points.

    I wonder why no one has written about the Marriott Platinum downgrades... that, and how Marriott Platinums are not treated equally with Identity Platinums.

    Last night I logged into my Identity account and discovered that I had a little over 1,400 points which are due to expire in a couple of weeks.  So I called The Cosmopolitan and requested that my Identity points be converted into Marriott Rewards points.  The representative I spoke with said she would take my information and have someone call me back as there are only two employees that can handle this request.

     

    I received a call back from someone named Devon who explained that the Identity points could only be transferred in increments of 500 points and that she could transfer 1,000 of the 1,400 points in my Identity account to my Marriott Rewards account.  She also explained that 1,000 Identity Points would equal approximately 800 Marriott Rewards Points and the transfer should take a few days.

     

    According to The Cosmopolitan website members of the Identity program earn 5 points per $1 spent on Hotel Rooms, Spa, Dinning, and Shopping.  Members also earn points in the Casino (1pt per $20 wagered at Tables, 1pt per $1.50 wagered at Reel Slots, & 1pt per $7.50 wagered at Video Poker).

     

    Their website indicates you can redeem your points for Dining, Spa, and Room upgrades but does not explain how many points are required to redeem awards.  Since I had the opportunity I asked Devon about Identity redemption options. She indicated that you must have at least 1,000 Identity points to receive a monetary credit towards anything at the hotel and the value of 1,000 Identity points is $1.  Since Identity Points expire each year I recommend cashing them in at the end of each stay or converting them to Marriott Reward Points unless you plan to visit the hotel more than once a year.

    Correction to value of Points=  1,000 Identity Points = $10, Each point is worth 1cent.

      I don't believe the conversion of identity points to $'s is correct, since you can convert 250,000 rewards point into 100,000 identity points. That would mean you convert 250,000 rewards points into $100 if my math is correct.

        cw082350,

         

        You were correct. I just called the Identity Desk at the Cosmopolitan to confirm the value of points.  Apparently I misunderstood the first rep I spoke with yesterday.  The Identity Desk has confirmed that the value of 1,000 points is equal to $10.  Each point is worth 1 cent.
