Marriott Digital Magazines

Knowing how much yours truly likes his Old Fashions (appropriate title - eh?), Manhattans and Bourbon flights, one of the younger entrepreneurs (in that famously labelled group, Millennials) I work with, passed this article along to me.

  Good stuff, but imagine my surprise when I, (who loves to Travel Brilliantly ) see the Marriott logo plastered all over the site. Tsk, tsk. Technology I don't mind being taught, but imagine the slap to my ego, when I, the Marriott lifer, learn about this stuff from a young whipper (which, of course, is why I try to hang with them).
 
But wait, there's more (and this one I believe I actually posted about earlier)  
which attracted about as much Insiders attention as an AARP magazine in a Moxy lounge.

Now, I don't ask moderation help about Birthday elite nights, tracking down unposted points, or kicking some GM's fanny about my window opening up to a brick wall, so here's my annual request for help from our crack moderation team (although, I'm still interested in hearing about the renewal of the Marriott/United Rewards Plus );

Five Things I Have Learned As A Millennial Working With Baby Boomers

how can I get on the mailing list for these two (Traveler & Travel Brilliantly)  digital Marriott Travel Magazines?  I promise not to participate with any elderly, out of the target audience views. Thank you.

ps- I have not ruled out that there is a sign up page staring me in the face in each publication (but I can't find it), so fellow Insiders, feel free to lend a hand and show me the light - thanks also.  (is this a "follow" only situation?)

    I didn't know there was... if there is...a sign up for e-mail page.  I just follow on Twitter.  Twitter can be hit or miss... I might miss a tweet and it gets shoved down to the bottom.  This could be why things are tweeted over and over again by some companies.  SO! I just check the websites every now and then. Email notification would be nice!

    I'm with you on this erc, I enjoy a nice glass of bourbon but a flight is always better!    Earlier this year, there were a few events around the country dubbed as the Bourbon Battles.  There was one in NYC, Portland OR and of course Lexington KY.  I'm doing a little poking around to see if there will be more events like this and will let you know what I'm able to find out.  In regards to the digital subscription, you can sign up for email updates for Travel Brilliantly via the bottom of the page on this link: Marriott Digital Magazines.  I do not believe you can sign up for Traveler updates, but looking into that as well.

      carat     Don't start drinking that bourbon before 10 am though

      The link you provided was my post    What Is a Mobius Strip? | Wonderopolis

       

      Ha - it happens to the best of us!  Thanks for the quick response and follow up

      I know you'll update and I'll definitely get on the list - good stuff.

        Hahaha! Thanks for catching that so quickly!! The correct link is: https://travel-brilliantly.marriott.com/ 

        I guess my mind was focused on the bourbon.  This past weekend I visited a distillery outside of Austin, TX, Treaty Oaks Distillery, and they had a blended bourbon that was super delicious.  I didn't realize that blending a couple bourbons together for one drink was a thing. Have you heard of it before?

          Thank you for the link (I was, of course, teasing, I know you wait until lunch ).

           

          While you were in your hometown Treaty Oaks, I was likewise in Culpeper, Va. at Belmont Farm Distillery (famous for the tv show Moonshiners). Bourbon folks get touchy about the specs (must be at least 51% corn, new oak barrel and ABV requirements - does not have to be made in Kentucky - a great marketing ploy on the Colonels' part), I have sampled 'blended' bourbons vs. 'straight' (just recently at Smith Bowman in Fredericksburg, Va.) and some can be quite tasty.

           

          As a Virginian, literally used to moonshine, white lightning, and grain - it don't bug me. As Billy Joel would say, back when I wore a younger man's clothes, grain and Welch's grape juice made for a quite an experience. But enough about my demons , thanks for your help.

          Well here I am again catching up on old news, but I did just try to sign up for the digital magazines and got this in nice red letters; what am I doing wrong?

            Hi again,

             

            Upon looking into this, our team was unable to duplicate the error, meaning one of the following: 1) the browser isn’t compatible with the sight. 2) it has already been fixed or 3) it’s not an option on that actual site (but only through marriott.com).

             

            We recommend trying to sign up through another browser or waiting and trying again later.  I’m sorry that we don’t have any other suggestions at this time.


            Sledchick and starryeyedwonder - are you still encountering this error?

                Tried Firefox on my Mac, no joy there either. 

                Hmm!

                    AndrewT have you gotten any update from your team.  Still not able to sign up.

              Thank you.

              I was able to get through this time.  This site is awesome.  It just kept going and going.  Each page led me to another and I discovered many exciting places to go.

              I do have one question.  There was a site to make reservations.  Was this an "approved" Marriott site or another one which may not give you points?

              Other than that.  This was fun.

                Hi starryeyedwonder,

                Our team has received clarification that if members book through Travel Brilliantly, they will receive Marriott Rewards credit for the stay. Thanks for inquiring.

                 

                Also, our team is still working on sign up errors for those experiencing an issue. We will keep you posted once we have an update from our IT team.

                Thank you for your patience!

              Hi AndrewT - I just tried to sign up again and got the same error.  I went through the correct link in Carat's post again but no luck.  Hmmm...

        I also saw the error page when I tried to sign up.

        Maybe the errors are selective??
