Marriott Bonvoy has Quietly Extended the Expiry of Suite Night Awards

Some Marriott Bonvoy members have received a pleasant surprise this morning. Those with Suite Night Awards due to expire on June 30, 2022 should see that they have been extended until December 31, 2022…

12 Suite Night Awards?

Like many Marriott Bonvoy members, I’ve lost track of the source of these Suite Night Awards. 5 of them were surely the result of accumulating 50 nights in 2021 – and choosing them as my 50-night Choice Benefit.

But the 7 that were due to expire yesterday have been found in my account throughout the pandemic. I’ve actually stayed fairly regularly at Marriott hotels for the last couple of years. So the problem isn’t the fact that I couldn’t travel, but simply that SNAs didn’t clear, even in the midst of a pandemic!

Bottom Line

Perhaps some Marriott Bonvoy members will be happy to see this extension. Others, like me, will just yawn – knowing that these life-extended Suite Night Awards are still likely to expire unused…

    They didn’t quietly extend for me. It was always extended till end of December in my account. Also for my free night certificate. Only to find out it was all cancelled early July. I could have used both at many opportunities early in 2022, but wanted to keep them for my summer break. Well no communication on change of date. Just expired in July even so still valdid till December. I was told it would be unfair and not integer to extend till December. So I wonder is it fair if apparently for every one the date is reflected as June in the sytsem while it is December for me. And not to tell me. Anyway the hotline apparently is also overwhelmed and hang up on me. First time experience that a hotline hangs up on me. Bonvoyed!

      They extended mine and then took them away later. I haven’t gotten around to writing another article about it…
