Marriott previously announced that they would extend free night awards from credit cards, travel packages, choice benefits, or promotions that expire in 2020 until 1/31/21.
They have now announced that any of those awards that were originally set to expire between 1/1/20-7/31/21 will now expire on 8/1/21.
Marriott previously announced that points won’t expire until 2/28/21. They have now announced that they will extend the moratorium on points expiration through 7/31/21. Points will begin expiring again on 8/1/21. Marriott points normally expire after 24 months of inactivity.
Marriott previously announced that suite night award expiring on 12/31/20 will be extended through 12/31/21 and that 2020 elite status that was set to expire on 2/28/21 will now expire on 2/28/22. They also added promotional elite qualifying nights to accounts.
Kudos to Marriott for the extensions, but it would have been nice for them to match Hyatt’s free night extension through 12/31/21. But I guess they figure they can always extend these again down the line if they need to.
