Marriott Meetings No Longer Earn Elite Nights
Ryan recently wrote a piece about how to book Marriott meetings for 10 nights of elite night credit. He even made it a huge part of his plan to earn Marriott Platinum status next year. It appears that is all for naught since Marriott meetings no longer earn elite nights.
A photo from an internal Marriott memo is circulating around the groups and chat rooms that shows that Marriott meetings no longer earn elite nights starting January 1st.
This was a way to earn 10 nights for around $100 each year and it is another nail in the coffin of the Marriott Bonvoy program. This made manufacturing elite status that much harder.
I know Bonvoy is a made up word but the definition should be sucking out every drop of value from a loyalty program because that is what Marriott continues to do since launching it.
Since Marriott meetings no longer earn elite night credits I think some people may reconsider earning status with them in 2020. Adding 10 more nights to your quest can be costly. Let us know if this changes your plans in the comments.
