So the Fab Four, so heavily promoted by Marriott, another miss. Per the announcement, stating 11/1/15, even for reward stays, nights are to be added to your eligible nights stay for the year.
I used points for a stay from 12/22/15-1/1/16. It was actually cash and points. I have the points, plus applicable bonuses posted to my account by 1/2/16. I am a Life Plat. So, even though I don't need the nights, I think a promise made should be kept. My eligible nights total is the same now as it was before the stay, yet the points have already posted.
I don't understand how this can be and why its not automatic. Another Marriott IT glitch (mock shock & disbelief overwhelms me that it could be an IT issue)
Anyone out there have any ideas, aside from calling and reporting this?
Happy New Year to all.
OK, so we go from absurd to the even more absurd. I called Marriott CS today. I am told, the nights posted in 2016, because your stay was in 2016. My stay started 12/22/2015 and I checked out on Jan 1, 2016 (which was technically for the night of 12/31/2015). I pointed out that today is January 5, 2016 so it is not possible for me to have stayed 10 nights in 2016!!!!!!! All CS could do was laugh and tell me I am correct and they will escalate. I am gob smacked by the incompetence and how little Marriott understands about it own systems and promises it made. Just wait for the *wood merger, then the real fun starts.
So, no resolution, all I can hope for is a call back. If not, I got to defy physics and the time-space continuum by having a 10 night stay on the 5th calendar day of the new year.
Thanks all, per the announcement, the program for Fab 4 started 11/1/15, so my redemption stay of 12/22 was certainly after that. I will give it a few more days, then I guess (with a big sigh of resignation, that I need to call way too often to get things posted, like paid night stays) I will call in again and ask why the # of nights has not been credited. The Marriott IT dept must work OT to see that things don't post right, hoping that we will all go away and not report things in.
