I am Marriott platinum member and would like to know what is the validity of marriott points. As per recent group announcement from marriott effective 1 FEB 2016 we need to do one transaction in 24 months to keep card active but i would like to know before this policy enforce what is the current policy. If someone has last stay as paid member in May 2013 then does it mean now in May 2015 all points will expire ?
Thanks for reaching out about this, mkhatri77.
I'd be happy to help clarify this for you. Let me get this to our team for updated information and I will post back with additional clarity.

Any transaction that posts to your account (ie. credit card points/nights, purchase of gift card, etc.) counts as activity. Also, if you have lifetime status, you are exempt from the new policy. Hope this helps.
Hey mkhatri77, joshm passed this on to our team and they have confirmed that Marriott gave almost a year 's heads-up to members about this policy enforcement. No points will expire until February 1, 2016 if the member has not maintained an active status.
I would recommend checking out the link that pluto77 provided for clarity. Additionally, you can find ways to maintain an active status on this site: Read Marriott Rewards Points Expiration Guidelines
