VIP perks are coming

Far East Man Platinum 1 Reviews

I received an email from Marriott Rewards for "top-tier travelers"

Expect to see:

  • Destination-specific recommendations designed to save time.
  • Recognition and unique rewards at every turn.
  • Exclusive upgrades and points bonuses for members like you.

Wondering if anyone else received and what it may be about.

    I also received the same email.  I suspect it's just a junk mail since they know I have upcoming reservations.  Based on the lack of promotions since May, I doubt it's truly anything extra special.

    It's junk. I didn't get one--I suspect because I am a RCR member, not MR, but I think it's junk. Probably it will mean some sort of targeted promotions for you. I have heard of Silver members being "top tier"

    I might have received this, sure I received something similar, seems like a load of sales puffery to me...

      If sales puffery is anything like jiggery pokery, our Supreme Court justice may borrow the phrase.

    I Received one as well. Just more Marriott news with no real substance! As a platinum member, I get nearly zero for my time and money. I am moving on!

    Thanks for sharing this with the community, Far East Man. An interesting topic.

     

    Was there any sort of indication regarding a time frame in the email you received?

      No time frame provided in my email.  Interesting will be determined when and if any details are released!

    I have spent years aspiring to be Platinum, and then Lifetime Platinum with all that promised. Since being Lifetime Platinum I have been underwhelmed by the "special treatment" with no upgrades and virtually no recognition (except the phoney "thank you for being platinum member" talk at check in). So I will not be holding my breath over this promise

    What does "coming year" mean anyway, 2016?

      IAHFLYR, In the small print on my email, it explained "coming year" as 2015-2016 for all members except those residing in Texas.....Texans will be brought along in 2022.

        painedplatinum,

         

        Ahhhh, see there is my problem, I had my shoes on and couldn't count that far......or maybe really was not Texas but Arkansas that had the date listed.
