Updated 9pm PT on 5/1: The reader who asked me this question sent me the following email. It looks like the 15 Elite Nights Credit posts very quickly (in just a few days)!
Hey Grant! Just checked my Marriott account and I now have the additional 15 nights. Not sure if it just takes a few business days, or if they update on a certain day of the week, etc. That said, downgrading for the elite nights looks to work just fine!
Updated 5pm PT on 5/8: I just received a response from Marriott regarding my email that I sent on 4/29:
Dear Grant Thomas, Thank you for contacting Marriott Rewards. It appears the 30 Elite nights were credited for your two Marriott Rewards credit cards from Chase. You received 15 Elite nights for your Marriott Rewards Premier credit card from Chase on January 8, 2018, and 15 Elite nights for your Marriott Rewards Premier Business credit card from Chase on April 18, 2018. If I can be of further assistance, I invite you to reply to this email. Thank you for choosing Marriott.
Good afternoon everyone, I hope your weekend is going well. I received an email from a reader asking about Marriott Rewards Elite Nights Credit. I am not sure if this is useful or helpful to others, but thought I would share anyways. Here is his question:
My question is simply whether or not you received the 15 elite night credits that the Marriott card provides, at or near the time that you did the downgrade. Right now I am at a point where those credits would push me up a tier of status in Marriott once the new loyalty program is implemented, but I have gotten conflicting answers from Chase when asking them if a product change would give me the night credits in the same way that a new application would.
This reader is referring to my post in early January regarding converting my JPMorgan Chase Ritz Carlton Credit Card to a Chase Marriott Rewards Visa Signature Credit Card. I downgraded / converted / product changed to the Chase Marriott Rewards Visa Signature Credit Card in January. I also received my new Chase Marriott Rewards Business Credit Card a few weeks ago. I haven’t stayed at Marriott this year, but when I logged into my Marriott account, it shows 30 Elite Night Credits. I tried to dig a little deeper to see when the Elite Night Credits posted, but that is not easy to find out.
