While I understand the issue with the new point structure and the dissastification from Platinum members on the cost of "equivalent stay" as a Platinum member I would like to see us be able to use points in the hotel besides stays. For example, using points for movies, meals, etc. I would also like to see a movie coupon, breakfast coupons be given after so many stays. IFinally, I would like to see internet cost included for platinum members stays.
These are great ideas for points use Recetta! I think that these points should be used as any scrip might be used--the value is in the use not the accumulation of the points. Marriott has a liability with these stored points in that if we all used them at once we'd see a lot of rooms going for free (not really but no money will be paid).
Great ideas and I second them!
