1. Marriott Adds Late Check-Out
Marriott announced new membership benefits including:
- The Experiences Marketplace
- Elite Concierge Service
- Guaranteed Late Check-Out
The Experiences Marketplace will be available to all Marriott and Ritz-Carlton Rewards members in late May 2016. You’ll be able to use your points for things like Broadway shows, cooking lessons, and even to hang out with your favorite sports team!
The Elite Concierge Service will at first be available ONLY to a select group of Marriott Rewards Elite members but will be expanded. You’ll get a dedicated concierge to help with anything you need during your stay, like on-site restaurant reservations, spa appointments, and special requests.
The Guaranteed Late Check-Out perk will be available to Marriott Rewards and Ritz-Carlton Rewards Gold & Platinum Elite members starting May 16, 2016. You’ll be able to check-out as late as 4:00 pm at participating hotels.

Welcome to the next installment of our Reader Success Series where Million Mile Secrets Readers share how they booked a trip with miles & points to get Big Travel with Small Money!
The Meckley Family is our newest reader success story to show folks it’s possible to travel without spending a lot of money.
A big thank you to The Meckleys for sharing their story!
Please introduce yourself to everyone and tell us how long you’ve been involved in the miles & points hobby.
New Daily Getaways travel deals start next week! For 5 weeks, the US Travel Association partners with hotels, airlines, and other providers to offer deals on travel. Some of them are worth buying!
On April 4, 2016, at 1:00 pm Eastern Time, you can purchase Choice Privileges points at a discount. Two of the packages are enough for 3 nights (or more) at Comfort Inn hotels, like the Comfort Inn St Louis – Westport! And with this deal, you save well over double the paid room rate at this hotel and many others.
I’ll explain how this offer works. And if you should consider it!
In the giveaway, we asked, “Where are you planning to fly next using miles & points?”
We received over 1,000 entries! We really appreciate your enthusiasm and love interacting with y’all!
Remember, we’ll announce the winner this Saturday, March 26, 2016. Good luck!
