Direct Bill Earning Question?

I know that technically you do not earn points for charges that are direct billed but had a question about the nights and other expenses.  I recently attended a vendor sponsored event at a Ritz property where my room and tax were paid by the vendor.  I provided my MR Platinum Premier number to accumulate points on any incidentals that were charged to my own CC.  The front desk clerk also made a comment that I would be credited for the nights.

 

I am going to submit for the missing points on the expenses I incurred but does anyone know whether you are entitled to the credit for the nights stayed?

 

Thanks!

    Hi boomer, I had our team provide clarification around this, and they said the when a vendor pays for a stay, members are not entitled to the nights or points for the room. Members need to pay for the room directly to receive the credits.

     

    I hope that helps clarify your question. Please let me know if you need anything else. I'm here to help!

      Thank you.  I had assumed that was the case but was intrigued by the front desk clerk's comment.  Thanks for the follow-up!
