Do certificate nights count towards 5th night free?

Hi,

 

I am planning a stay at a Category 4 property. I will have two certificates, each for a single night, plus enough points for two additional nights. I am wondering whether this combination of four nights would enable the fifth night free. Or do the four nights need to be exclusively point redemptions, and not include any certificate nights?

 

Thanks!

    You can certainly call Marriott rewards and see if they'll hook you up with that 5th night. I'm guessing no, but give it a try.

     

    Normally, the "5th night free" will show up when you use points and book the trip on marriott.com. The system will charge your 5 nights stay for the 4 night points price. So, I'm pretty sure you won't be able to do it on line. Give them a call and let us know!!

      Hi there - thanks for the quick reply. I should have added that I have made the reservation but have not yet accrued sufficient points... just waiting for the 50K to show up (new credit card) and I have another stay pending that will get me a megabonus certificate. So I have not yet processed anything on the system other than reserving the room.

       

      Once the points arrive in my account I will call Marriott and will post the outcome. Thanks again.

    Hi Again,

     

    I finally got all my points and certificates lined up so took the good advice given here and called Marriott.

     

    Confirming that certificates do not count towards 5th night free. I would need to redeem 4 nights' worth of points in order to receive the 5th night free.

     

    Thanks for your advice!
