UPDATE – OCTOBER 2022: This article is now out of date, but don’t worry. We produce a monthly summary of the top hotel bonus point offers – please click HERE or use the ‘Hotel Offers’ menu above.
Marriott Bonvoy is offering 2,000 bonus points per stay between 21st September and 15th December. The offer starts with your second stay during the period. Marriott Bonvoy American Express cardholders will receive additional bonuses. Registration closes on 1st December. Click here for our full article. Click here to register.
I rarely run articles on offers at specific hotels, but this one is generous and the properties are well regarded.
Marriott Rewards is offering 10,000 bonus points when you stay at any of its three boutique ‘Autograph Collection’ properties in the UK:
Threadneedles in The City of London
St Ermin’s in Westminster, London (photo above)
The Glasshouse, Edinburgh
You earn the bonus as many times as you want, which makes it especially valuable for regular business travellers. I would value the 10,000 bonus points at roughly £50 if used for hotel stays, and you can also transfer Marriott points to Avios.
The last day to stay is 31st March.
You MUST use promotional code M41 when booking on the Marriott website.
