Extend the Life of Your Marriott 7 Night Certificate Online!
A lot of people took advantage of Marriott’s Flights and Nights package last year in order to get the Companion Pass before that loophole expired. I imagine a lot of you are still sitting on that 7 night certificate.
There a couple of things you can do with those certificates. You can attempt to quickly use them, you can call to extend them, or you can get some of your points redeposited and cancel it. Those were the options until Shawn decided to find a better way and got his certificate extended online. No human interaction needed…Shawn’s favorite way to get things done :).
How to Extend Your Marriott 7 Night Certificate Online
Shawn’s resistance to call anyone is our gain. He contacted Marriott through their contact us link (you have to be logged in for full access).
He then selected “Marriott Rewards – managing account” from the drop down menu.
Shawn filled out the comments section saying that he had an expired certificate and he was told to contact them to get it extended when it was near or just after it had expired.
He received a response within a few hours saying that his certificate had been extended until February 8, 2019 and he should see it in his account within 15 minutes. She informed him that he needed to use it by that date. I have heard of people extending it for a second year but I wouldn’t count on it.
If you have been sitting on an expiring or expired 7 night certificate because you were dreading making the phone call then you don’t have to wait any longer. Get on Marriott’s website and go through their contact us page and fill out your request. You should get a response by sometime tomorrow.
Is this something you plan on using?
