Approved for Marriott... now what?

Postby nismoZtuner » Sun Aug 25, 2013 2:47 pm

last week during the 14th i was approved for the marriott rewards with a $5k credit limit (highest up to now).

since I was assigned a marriott reward account number with the card- i was trying to set up my account with marriott on their site by activating my account since making a new account will only get me a new marriott account number. but it keeps telling me that my information is incorrect to make sure- or to call guest services in which i did but i didn`t get help from an actual person but from an operator. I was able to set up my chase account without a problem.

my question for anyone who has the card..
Were you able to set up an account at marriott.com?

this is where i`m trying to activate..

I would call Chase and ask them to link them and see if the have any problems. If they do perhaps they will take the initiative to fix it or tell you how to fix it. I recently opened rewards account with Marriott and applied for Marriott visa moments later and Chase took care of it. So I know it can be done.

I think you will find that Chase will tell you Marriott has to do anything related to the rewards account and that they cant help. I will say this its really only about a 5 min process to link accounts so you could just set up an account and when your card arrives call Marriott and have them merge the two accounts into one.

I have never had a marriotts account, i applied for the card on the 14 of this month and i received the card on the 24. since the card has that i have an account i was trying to activate it but it tells me the information i enter is incorrect.

"Please correct the following and try again.
- Please ensure the information you provided matches your Rewards account information. Otherwise, please call Rewards Guest Services at 801-468-4000."

so when i applied for the card i guess chase made me an account. hmm wonder if i have to wait for marriott to get my info.

i sent marriott and email since calling them isnt really helping since i get to speak with a machine

i was able to set up my account yesterday. i kept on trying to activate my account and no success until a marriott chat window appeared. I told the representative that i kept getting errors- the guy told me that i needed to use a space between my last names *which i did- i was trying every possible pastern in my name.I guess that was just a lie in their part- but anyways its all fixed.
