Spouse granted same status - I have been following discussion and offer the following-
With Marriott I am Lifetime PE but wife has no benefits from all "our" paid stays nor will she get to enjoy our unused points if / when I pass! NOT FAIR because she endured the hardships while I was away at a Marriott!
. . . on the other hand, I am GOLD (normally and for years even higher) allow a JOINT account and my wife is on the same account as me - plus since she is "on the account as spouse" she will get to enjoy any unused points in "our" account! COME ON MARRIOTT, DO SOMETHING GOOD FOR YOUR LOYAL MEMBERS AND ALLOW SPOUCES TO BE ON THE SAME ACCOUNT!
Thanks for sharing this with the Insiders family, jlowery35242! This has been a hot topic on Insiders this past month, and it appears that your concerns are similar to many other members. In addition, I have passed this topic on to the greater team.
