UPDATE – SEPTEMBER 2022: This article is now out of date, but don’t worry.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.
In the absence of a new global promotion, Marriott Rewards is sending most – but not all – members a targeted offer for the next couple of months.
If you didn’t receive one, you may be opted out of emails or it may have gone into spam. Log into the Marriott website here, click on the down arrow next to your name in the top right corner and then click on Promotions. If you have an offer it will show.
My offer was double points on stays of 2+ nights until 30th April.
There are a lot of permutations of the offer. These include:
- Double elite night credits on all stays for two or three months
- 10 bonus elite night credits after two stays
- Earn 9,000 bonus points with three paid stays
- Earn 22,500 bonus points with three paid stays
- Earn 22,500 bonus points with two paid stays
…. and more.
Whether your particular offer is attractive will depend partly on whether you are driven by the need for points or elite night credits. Some are very good, especially for anyone lucky enough to be offered 22,500 bonus points – which I’d value at £110+ – for two stays.
If you didn’t get an email, take a look at the Marriott website and log in.
Remember that you must register for your offer. It is not automatic.

You can apply here.
You can also earn Marriott Bonvoy points by converting American Express Membership Rewards points at the rate of 2:3.
Do you know that holders of The Platinum Card from American Express receive FREE Marriott Bonvoy Gold status for as long as they hold the card? It also comes with Hilton Honors Gold, Radisson Rewards Gold and MeliaRewards Gold status. We reviewed American Express Platinum in detail here and you can apply here.
