快訊!全新 Marriott 萬豪常旅客計劃中部分規則條款洩露

一份新萬豪常旅客計劃的Terms and Conditions被人從尚未公開發布的萬豪官方網頁中抽取出來,發在了網上(https://pastebin.com/BKQxCSNC),這是一份非常長的英文版本的Terms and Conditions,我估計你不會想去看原文的。從內容上來分析,其真實性應該非常高,當然,不排除最近幾天萬豪或許還會對其進行修訂。不管怎樣,我們先睹為快:

我挑選了部分內容跟大家分享,我認為這些可能是大部分讀者朋友比較關心的。

2.1.b.d – you can earn points when dining or drinking at a Marriott or SPG property – even if you are not a guest – as long as you spend $10 (the old SPG rule carries across)

2.1.b.d – 即便不入住酒店(無需預訂客房),在萬豪或SPG酒店餐飲消費即可賺取積分,前提條件則是消費超過10美元。

點評:沿襲了SPG的做法,這一規則的變更或許有助於通過餐飲消費在萬豪旗下酒店更加高效地累積大量積分。

2.8.a – you can transfer up to 50,000 points per year from one member to another as long as you share an address

2.8.a – 不同會員之間每年最多可以轉分5萬,要求雙方賬戶家庭地址一致。

點評:轉分要求同地址的這一約束沿襲了SPG的規則,然而5萬點萬豪積分的上限還是有點過低。當然,還是可以通過給他人兌換獎勵住宿的方式繞開這一限制,但是它將受到如下約束:

2.8.c – once per year you can exceed the 50,000 point transfer limit as long as the points are used immediately for a redemption

2.8.c – 通過給他人兌換獎勵住宿這一方式突破5萬轉分限制的行為,每年僅允許一次

 

3.2.e.iii – “Free Night Awards at the following locations require a higher amount of Points either because the Participating Property does not have standard rooms or the standard rooms it offers have a mandatory full board requirement in peak seasons: Vana Belle, a Luxury Collection Resort, Koh Samui, Thailand; The Naka Island, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, Phuket, Thailand; Sheraton Steamboat Resort Villas, Steamboat Springs, Colorado; The Westin Golf Resort & Spa, Playa Conchal, Costa Rica; The St. Regis Bora Bora and the Le Méridien Bora Bora, Bora Bora, French Polynesia; Mystique, a Luxury Collection Resort, Santorini, Santorini, Greece; The St. Regis Bali Resort, Nusa Dua, Indonesia; Hotel Cala di Volpe, Hotel Pitrizza, and Hotel Romazzino, Costa Smeralda, Italy; W Maldives, North Ari Atoll, Maldives; W Koh Samui, Surat Thani, Thailand; Al Maha, a Luxury Collection Desert Resort & Spa, Dubai, UAE; St. Regis Residence Club, Aspen, Aspen , CO; and Phoenician Residences, a Luxury Collection Residence Club, Scottsdale, AZ.”

如果上述條款最終實施,那麼它透露的信息表明:SPG旗下的頂級酒店(如大溪地瑞吉蘇梅島W)將仍舊不受標準獎勵住宿兌換錶格限制,即不存在60K積分封底一說。感覺這跟之前萬豪全球SVP的承諾有所出入。

3.2.n – NO BLACKOUT DATES. Marriott has adopted the Starwood policy. If a “standard” room is available for cash, you can book it for points. Of course, some hotels play games over what they call a “standard” room.

3.2.n – 不存在不適用日期,相當於是積分房兌換的保障條款。這是沿襲SPG的規則,如果酒店有現金價格在售的標準客房,那麼會員就一定可以使用積分兌換。當然,不排除一些酒店為繞開規則限制,會把大部分客房改為豪華或者高樓層房型。

3.5.b – PointSaver discounted rewards will not be offered at ex-SPG hotels for now, although to be honest they were always few and far between.

3.5.b – 萬豪的PointSaver將暫時不對SPG酒店開放,所謂PointSaver指的是可以用低於標準的積分兌換客房,比如原本一晚需要1萬積分,PointSaver時僅需8千積分。

 

3.6.b – you can continue to book reward nights if you do not have the points in your account as long as you earn them 14 days before check-in. However, this feature will not apply to ex-SPG hotels at this time which will disappoint some readers.

3.6.b – 在賬戶積分不足的情況下仍舊可以預訂獎勵住宿,只需在入住前14天補足積分即可;但是這一福利暫時不適用於SPG酒店。

4.3.c.ii – Platinum members are not guaranteed a suite upgrade even if suites are available. At The Ritz-Carlton, only Platinum Premier members will be considered for suite upgrades and upgrades will never include club access. No upgrades will be given at Element or Aloft hotels.

4.3.c.ii – 即使是在酒店有空閒套房的情況下,不保證普通白金(Platinum)會員升級套房。在麗思卡爾頓酒店,只考慮對大白金(Platinum Premier)升級套房,但是不包含club access(酒廊權益)。在源宿和雅樂軒品牌的酒店將不提供升級權益。

點評:雖然說SPG也不保證白金升套房,但是這句英文原文的表述讓人讀了真的有點好氣!你怎麼看?

5.3.d – you now only earn 10 elite night credits for your first meeting per calendar year. It is no longer possible to book a number of 1-hour meeting rooms at your local Marriott and gain elite status purely via that route.

5.3.d – 每年僅可通過首次會議賺取10個有效房晚,這就意味著擼會議的路子徹底掛了,不過在8.18之前你還有機會通過這一方式快速獲得萬豪白金!
