Marriott Bonvoy has launched its second ‘bonus points’ promotion since the scheme launched in February.

You can register here by logging in.

Here are the key points:

The promotion is called “Endless Earning”

It runs from 2nd July to 16th September (registration closes 2nd September)

Marriott Bonvoy Summer 2019 Endless Earning promo

You will receive 1,500 bonus points on every stay of 2+ nights

All 6,700 hotels across all 29 hotel brands are taking part

The 29 brands you can stay at to earn bonus points include: AC Hotels, Aloft, Autograph, Courtyard, Delta Hotels, Design Hotels, Edition, Element, Fairfield Inn, Four Points, Gaylord, Le Meridien, Marriott, Protea, Renaissance, Residence Inn, St Regis, Sheraton, The Luxury Collection, The Ritz-Carlton, Springhill Suites, Towneplace Suites, W and Westin.

What is the Marriott bonus worth?

I value a Marriott Bonvoy point at 0.5p.

You earn 10 base points per $1 spent on eligible hotel charges, except at Element, Residence Inn and TownePlace Suites hotels, where you earn five points per eligible $1.  Status bonuses are on top of this.

Assuming a 0.5p valuation, the 1,500 bonus points mean that you are getting an additional return of £7.50-worth of points.

This is not hugely generous, and is clearly more attractive on a two night stay than a 10 night stay.

What are your other hotel promo options?

Looking at the other major chains ….

IHG has brought back a version of its Accelerate promotion.  Everyone gets different personalised targets, although in general they are less generous than they were in Spring.  You need to hit your targets before 31st August.  You can register here.

Hilton‘s latest offer is double points, with extra bonuses for hitting 10, 15 or 20 stays before 8th September, starting with your 2nd stay.  You can register here.

Radisson Rewards is offering 3,000 bonus points per NIGHT until 31st August, although this only starts from your 2nd stay after registration.  I would value 3,000 points at £9 so this is generous.  You can register here.

The new Marriott Bonvoy offer does not compare too well, especially on longer stays.  The Radisson offer is clearly better although it only kicks in from your second stay.  Hilton’s offer is clearly better on longer expensive stays but it is marginal on a short cheap stay.

Register now

It makes sense to register for this new Marriott Bonvoy offer now.  It runs until the 16th September and registration cuts off early on 2nd September.  Remember that only stays from 2nd July count.

  • Mike says:

    Marriott now asks for a AAA number when trying to book the AAA rate. As an AA member (ARC, show your card, etc) any idea how I can book the AAA rate now?

  • Justin Carpenter says:

    No mention of the promotion on they website when I login via the link. Is it targeted ?
