Recap: 5 Night Marriott Packages?, Thank You To SPG Employees, Private Labeling 101 & More
- You Can Give Points to Starwood Employees as a Thank You — and It Costs You Nothing by View From The Wing. I wish loyalty programs would make these sort of things clearer, what’s the point of having these programs if nobody uses them?
- File this under rumors, but reader Cytraveler shared this comment: “I just got the Marriott hotel+air for Southwest 120k for the companion pass. The CSR, who was quite friendly, told me that 2 weeks ago the higher ups had a meeting about whether to allow regular members (i.e., not timeshare owners) to book the 5-day option, because they have had lots of people saying they can’t use the 7 day award.
She said she hasn’t heard any decision yet on that. But maybe there’s hope for 5-day hotel options for hoi polloi?”
