As a Premier member, I am very disappointed. With the economy going to ****, and occupancy down, why you would pull a bonehead move like the points depreciation is beyond me. I plan my vaca's a year in advance. Have gone on a Marriott vaca with family each year... I spend on average 90 nights a year on the road, 75-80at Marriott. Think I will look into a new program. This is deceptive at a minimum.
