Has anybody used the Marriott 50 night Annual Choice benefit for a new bed? Other choices are useless since I'm already LTPP and not traveling on current project. Votes on JW vs. Ritz bed?

Westin Heavenly is great IMHO. That said, bear in mind that the discount is only on the non-discounted price from the catalog, so it may be the same with or without the Annual Choice Benefit

It is usually an extra 10-15% off the occasional sale prices which are usually 25-30% off.

I know someone who got the California king Westin bed using that reward. Apparently the bed sunk over time and wasn’t as robust as the hotel ones. Not sure if that was an unusual circumstance or not.

I love those beds though

They come with a 10 year warranty. Hopefully they got it replaced.

I would get the luxury collection bed. Better than heavenly bed and was about $400 less than what I could find else where on sale. For reference it is Beauty Rest Black if you want to compare with stores.

This is an option?

Yes, discount of 40%

Oh I'd imagine you can get that same model from a bed store for a lower price just by negotiating, bedding list prices have so much margin built in

Why is a free night cert useless?

Free night isn't an option as I didn't hit 75 nights.

Also it is not just the bed. You also need the right pillows and sheets to get the full experience (you can get these cheaper else where. Look for cotton ones with >1000 thread count.)
