    Anyone have a check-in experience at a MVCI property using their MR Digital Membership Card?

    The new Marriott mobile apps are nice. I could get all this information in the past via other electronic sources but it’s nice to have it all in one central location.

    Now I would just like for them to roll out electronic check-in to other properties. I have tried the electronic check-in process in San Francisco, Atlanta, Washington DC, and a few others. I find the overall experience quick and easy in most cases.

    I've rarely needed to show my MR card, digital or otherwise, at check-in. I do always make certain that that they have the number on the reservation though.

    I do use the iOS app regularly to check our points balance and total stays for the year. It works well.

    I am Platinum Premiere with Marriott and have never used my card at check-in in 10+ years.
    I have used it for discounts but never at check-in.

    In certain properties, you can bypass the normal check-in process by using your card or mobile device to automatically check-in.

    How do you get a hard copy or digital membership card?

    FT, can you explain a little bit more? As near as I can figure from what you've posted, you've used an app called "Marriott Rewards Digital Membership Card" to electronically check in to Marriott hotel stays and you're asking if it can also be used to check in to the timeshares?

    If that's what you're asking, I'd guess that the app can be used for any cash/MR points stays booked through marriott.com or their telephone lines, including stays at MVCI properties that are booked with cash/MR points.

    I'd also guess that the electronic check-in app is tied to the marriott.com system, and thus not usable for Weeks/DC Points stays booked through my-vacationclub.com or their telephone lines. At least, we haven't gotten any notices from my-vacationclub.com email addresses and there's nothing on the website announcing the app's introduction. How did you learn about it?

    That's what I get from your post, anyway. Please correct me if it's wrong. :)

    The one kiosk I used (I normally go to desk to make sure I get upgrade), I only needed my Credit Card.

    The Digital card is available when you login on the Marriott mobile app. The mobile app is available on the iOS, Android, and BB platforms. The hardcopy card is mailed every membership year at renewal time.

    Yes, but the property needs to have the kiosk to make this happen automatically.

    Do you remember what property did you last use this? I have been able to use it most recently at the SF Airport Marriott and the Atlanta Airport Marriott.

    Yes.

    It pertains to Marriott Rewards, which aren't necessarily completely split from MVCI. For example, stays at MVCI do count toward your annual nights stayed count, and dollars spent there on the Marriott Visa do pay 5x.

    As a MR member, your digital identity can be used to earn points or miles at MVCI properties.

    But isn't your MR account being used for this, digital or not? I just don't understand the purpose of this.

    The digital identity facilitates the check-in process where automated check-in kiosks have been deployed.
