I have copied and slightly edited the following from an old TUG BBS thread.
(Note that the discount discussed below applies only for stays at Marriott timeshares. There is currently no owner discount for staying at Marriott hotels and other non-timeshare Marriott properties.) (Edited on 12/27/06 to note that the owners' discount is applicable for some hotel stays. Try it when making a reservation.)

When a Marriott timeshare owner wishes to book at another Marriott timeshare property, what is the TOTAL discount one receives? A moderator once mentioned it was 35%... How do we book online to obtain that discount? I know there is a promotional code, but don't remember what that will be.

Type MOD into the corporate code box in the reservation engine.
Let me know if you see a rate for a 35% discount when using the Marriott Gold VISA (which I can't find exists anywhere). I've asked the Marriott Concierge on FT this question but haven't seen an answer back yet.
Otherwise, the discount, at least at the resorts I've looked at (NCV and MAW most recently) is 25%.

The discount is not automatic; it's based on availability of rooms.

25% if you are an MVCI owner

10% if you use your Marriott Visa

And yes, those are cumulative percentages. For a total of 35%...but once again, only if the rooms are available for discount and haven't been blacked out.

I just tested the discount rate for NCV. I used 1/13-1/15/05 and, using the MOD code, got two rates: a 25% discount without a VISA and 35% discount with a VISA.

The rate rules specify that the rate with the VISA requires that you "MUST GUARANTEE AND PAY WITH MARRIOTT GOLD CARD VISA." However, the benefit to owners is for using any Marriott VISA. The language specifying "Gold" is just outdated.

Many of us here (including me - on several occasions) have obtained the full 35% discount. No one has ever reported on this board of having lost the promised 35% discount merely because they didn't have a specific type of Marriott VISA card.
