Browsing my emails this morning and I opened an email sent from Marriott yesterday with the subject title, “Richard’s February Deals + Discoveries”.
There is a grid of Marriott deals displayed.
Elite Exclusive Rates in Paris, France with 15% off is the first link I clicked.
Marriott Elite Status Mismatch
We’re sorry. Viewing this Elite Offer requires a higher Marriott Rewards Elite status than you have presently achieved. We cannot display the information you have requested.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
Marriott showed me the deals and I did make a discovery.
Not exactly the way to endear me to Marriott Rewards when I am sent targeted offers I can’t view.
Is this supposed to be my personalized incentive to reach Marriott Rewards Gold elite?
