Marriott Bonvoy is currently running its ‘Week of Wonders‘ promotion to remind you of the joys of travel.
Head for Points is supporting ‘Week of Wonders’ with a number of special features including FIVE fantastic competitions.
Today’s theme is ‘Wonders of Delight’. Read to the bottom of the article to enter to win a one night stay – with breakfast and spa treatments – at the St Pancras Renaissance hotel.
Regular readers will know that we held our successful 2019 Summer party at the St Pancras Renaissance. Others may know it (pre renovation) as the setting for the Spice Girls ‘Wannabe’ video …..
Earn 10 Bonvoy points per £1 with the Marriott Bonvoy American Express card
But first …..
As part of Week of Wonders, Marriott Bonvoy has launched a special deal for the Marriott Bonvoy American Express credit card.
Until 31st January, you will receive a whopping 10 points per £1 when you use your card to pay for Marriott Bonvoy hotels.
If you value a Marriott Bonvoy point at 0.5p (as we conservatively do at HfP) then you are getting points worth 5% of your hotel spending.
This offer applies to both new and existing cardholders. If you have a large Marriott International hotel stay coming up, it may be worth applying for the card purely to pick up 10x points on your stay. A £2,000 bill would generate 20,000 points after all.
Other features of the Marriott Bonvoy American Express card
Other key features include:
15 elite night credits each year – this is good enough to trigger Silver Elite status by itself, and puts you 15 nights nearer Gold, Platinum or Titanium Elite
2 points per £1 on your day to day spending
6 points per £1 on spending at Marriott Bonvoy hotels (increased to 10 points per £1 until 31st January)
Gold Elite status in Marriott Bonvoy if you spend £15,000 in a card year
a free night voucher (valid for a room costing up to 25,000 points) if you spend £25,000 in a card year
a sign-up bonus of 20,000 Marriott Bonvoy points when you spend £3,000 in your first 90 days
There is an annual fee of £75. You only qualify for the sign-up bonus if you haven’t had any personal American Expres card in the previous 24 months, although you do receive all of the other benefits.
