    I am at the tpc sawgrass tonight and without even thinking, i gave the desk agent my ritz reward number when I checked in. She typed the number in and said "oh, perfect, I see your account."

    Will I accrue Ritz points for this Marriott stay? Or will these fall through the cracks?

    Yes, the system is the same. As far as I can tell the only difference is that if you sign up under RC you receive an RC card and likewise for Marriott. The account number itself is under the Marriott system. The points are interchangeable but the award tiers are different.

    Great, thanks.

    Too push my luck, do I get a stay credit? Or is it just the points?

    I understand that the system is indeed the same, and yes, the points should be inter-changeable because Marriott Reward members can earn points // redeem points at RC properties, and of course RC card holders can earn // redeem points at Marriott properties!;):)

    I think Ritz Rewards better deal = recognition at both Ritz and Marriott. If I recall Marriott members get zip at Ritz properties which is well odd, but oh well.

    Do you get the same tier level at both? e.g, if you're Marriott Plat, do you automatically become Plat with Ritz Carlton Rewards?

    Collect for example 30 000 points on the Marriott Reward Card and this can give us a free night in the Tier 1 Ritz Carlton properties which are priced at 30 000 points....!:)

    Any idea how long should it take to post? I stayed at the Marriott TPC 8 days ago and still no points in my RC rewards account.

    UPDATE: Points posted yesterday (12 days after I checked out).

    Beyond the points for the room rate, I also got a stay credit and Ritz points (10 points per dollar) for my 'incidentals,' which included a $600 dinner at the restaurant. I would not have received points for the incidentals had I been at a Ritz Carlton property.
