    All good things don't necessarily come only to those who wait. Marriott Rewards - Marriott International's award-winning loyalty program -- today announced FlashPerks and LocalPerks, two new ways for next generation travelers to enjoy instant gratification. Marriott Rewards members can take advantage of time sensitive offers from Marriott's global portfolio of brands and its partners.

    Members will be able to choose from a variety of experiences during stays, or between stays via "push" messaging to their mobile devices for Local Perks or through the FlashPerks website.

    "With the best loyalty program in the business, we are constantly innovating to provide our members new and compelling ways to engage with Marriott Rewards," said Karin Timpone, global marketing officer. "With our global portfolio of brands and our ability to scale our mobile activations quickly, we are excited by these and other opportunities that marry new technologies and consumer benefits."

    I wished they announced MorePerks instead, eg more points earned per dollar, increased benefits, or a lower qualifying stay criteria for Elite levels..:p

    I was able to book the JW Marriott Hotel in Hong Kong for 20000 points per night. That is 50% off the normal award rate. Even the 2 Courtyards there require 15000 and 30000 points.
