I recently noticed that the link I had saved to purchase 'Dinner for 2' certificates ($109) is no longer active. I searched the website, but could not find these gift certifcates anywhere on the site. Does anyone know what happened to these certificates?
There are still award certificates available for 20000 MR points, but it appears that certificates can no longer be purchased. This will definitely reduce my dining in Marriott property restaurants during my future vacations.
I just received a confirmation email from Marriott that this program has been eliminated. I am very disappointed because this allowed us a reasonable opportunity to enjoy a meal at an overpriced restaurant in a Marriott property during our vacations. I am actually angry that no announcement was made prior to the discinuation. I wouldn't be surprised if the 20000 MR point certificates are also at risk.
With the recent changes to Marriott Rewards, the website, Courtyard Hotels, and Marriott Vacation Club, I am beginning to think that Marriott is using the same consultants that ruined Delta with policy and program changes.
