Got mine just now too. I had actually called ambassador service line asking for when my cheese board will be shipped. He politely replied that it was a surprise and that he couldn’t share if I was going to get anything. Ten mins later, received it in the mail.

I just want everyone to know, I’ve received the cheese board. For those who didn’t receive, I need to let you know that this cheese board is amazing. Ever since I received this cheese board, my cheese tastes better, the air smells cleaner, there’s an electricity of excitement and anticipation that follows me where I go. This cheese board has made me wiser, more traveled...its raised my IQ 24 points, made me a black belt in karate and a better lover. I now understand nuanced geopolitical complexities, look at art differently, and know the fire that ignites man’s soul. My only despair in life is for those who haven’t received this cheese board, whose Ambassadors won’t unlock the bounds that hold the uninitiated behind. Alas you poor souls, who will never know the unbridled joy that is the Marriott Bonvoy cheese board.

@SM1, there must be a profitability dimension to it, in which case more nights per given spend wouldn't help... It's probably something like average spend per night and total spend.

Hey fish fam, need an expectations level set. Ambassador status, staying at a St Regis for honeymoon. Concierge emailed to ask the occasion ahead of time, and we mentioned again at valet, check in, and breakfast - haven’t gotten anything other than “congrats.” No upgrade. No information at check in re: amenities or “rituals” (e.g., 3 days in found out that there is a daily bloody Mary tasting - would’ve been nice to know). Am I overreacting to have hoped for something, anything celebratory?
