I too am very disappointed with the announcement of this new program. Each time we receive an e-mail announcing a new property on sale at MVCI the big excitement is how many points you will receive for buying another property. Based on this new program, these points become meaningless. In addition, when trying to book a hotel, there is never any availability. The JWMarriott in Capri is category 8 now and it comes us for additional points, 5 nights 240,000 points!!!! We are also told that booking the package depends on booking the air which also always seems to not be available. We were promised free vacations for purchasing and now this is not what we were promised by each of Marriotts salespersons. Marriott stock is way down these days. Is this a way to bolster the stock by taking the points off the books??? The Airlines have been doing this too. I would like to see a discussion of the above by some of Marriots executives, VP's , etc. Thank you.
