Any changes to bonvoy points update schedule when booking on points ?
Should the deduction show up when booking is made or during check in/ check out ?

If I understand your question you're asking when they deduct the points from your account?

When you booked and have the points its taken right away, if you do not have the points and if its a significant amount of time out (i think it needs to be 2 weeks) you can "hold" the reservation and redeem the points. If you dont request ecertificates within 15 days if you have them the hotel will automatically order, if you dont they usually reach out as you should pay cash or they cancel the reservation. You shouldn't be deducting anything at checkin/checkout

Great. So after all hiccups and issues I have had since the merger finally something positive. They forgot to deduct points but confirmed a reservation :D

Would it be insane for us to do our honeymoon before our formal wedding but after our elopement? We would still do something smaller after the wedding next year!
