How to Redeem Marriott Reward Free e-Certificate?

Best Reward Cards

I forgot about my Marriott E-Certificate of which the credit card was approved since May 2012.  Most of my friends do not believe such offer from Marriott, because it only requires one purchase using the card to qualify for the reward. Waiting 6-8 weeks is a long wait also, so it happened naturally ... I completely forgot.  Just remember today, make a reservation on-time on the expiration date. This time, we can stay longer visiting a friend's family near the hotel which is about 1 hour drive at least.

E-Certificate is good for one free night at Marriott Category 1-4 hotel.

Marriott Reward credit card's offer details says

We ended up staying at the FairField Inn by Marriott, which is only two blocks away from where our friend family live.  Our room was decent size with a lounge area.  All the fees were covered except overnight parking which was $10.  The package came with free Wi-Fi and continental breakfast.  It is not a five-star experience, but provided us the convenience of overnight stay without the rush to drive back.
