This was posted this morning in the Marriott Bonvoy “Insiders” group on Facebook a short while ago:
Stating that too many members are tying up award availability, they advise that there is now a time limit for Points Advance.
Keep in mind that they already made a significant change a few years ago in that even the Points Advance booking doesn’t secure the points rate – meaning the price can change on you anyway now. But it does make sure you get the room.
The changes are as follows:
• You have 60 days from today or up to 14 days prior to arrival (whichever comes first) to earn enough Points to cover your existing Points Advance reservations.
• Reservations made using Points Advance will be held for up to 60 days and will only be confirmed once the required Points are earned or purchased.
• If you do not earn or purchase enough Points to cover the reservation within 60 days, or by 14 days prior to arrival (whichever comes first), the reservation hold will be canceled.
