Back in October, Marriott announced that they’d be extending the expiration date of free night certificates to August 1, 2021 which were originally due to expire in 2020 or up to July 2021.
That announcement said that the extension would be processed by December 11, but they’ve gotten it done a little early as the extended date is now showing. When logging into my account, a bunch of free night certificates which previously had an expiry date of January 31, 2021 are now showing as being valid through August 1, 2021.
In even better news, Greg had a 7 night travel package for category 6 properties and that’s been extended too. That wasn’t a new travel package, so if you’d been in the same situation and wondering if yours would be updated, check your account and you’ll hopefully get a pleasant surprise.
If I’m remembering correctly, when Marriott last updated the extension dates of certificates, the change got rolled out over the course of a day or two. If you’re not seeing the updated expiry dates in your account, that’ll hopefully change in the next day or two seeing as they originally weren’t due to have implemented the change until Friday December 11.
