Marriott Bonvoy announced back in January (read more here) that they would immediately stop issuing new Travel Packages. Existing ones, which are not used or attached by the end of February, would be credited to member accounts as points (read more here).
Readers were in touch with us last week, informing us that Marriott had not processed the refunds on March 1, 2022, as previously promised (read more here). Marriott spokesperson confirmed that they were experiencing a delay due to technical issues.

The Refund Posted To The Account:
Here’s how much you should get back for each package:
- Marriott Bonvoy Delay Crediting Travel Packages As Points?
- Reader Question: How Many Points Marriott Credits For Unattached Travel Package Certificate?
- Marriott Travel Packages No Longer Available & Attach Existing Certificates By February 28, 2022
- Is Marriott Bonvoy Going To Kill The Travel Package Redemption Option This Week?
I am glad that Marriott could fix their technical issues and has now processed the refunds to affected members, albeit ten days late.
Members can now put these points to good use before the devaluation hits hotel awards at the end of this month.
