With self catering holidays set for another good year, Homes & Villas by Marriott International has launched a quadruple points promotion.

The standard Bonvoy earning rate with Homes & Villas is 5 points per $1. This is quadrupled to 20 points per $1 for all stays booked by 11th February. You must complete your stay by 31st March 2022.

There is a three night minimum stay required. Existing bookings do not count.

Even better, this offer will stack with the current American Express cashback deal.

If targeted, you will receive £150 cashback when you spend £500+ on the Homes & Villas website by 30th April. You need to check the ‘Offers’ section of your American Express account to see if you are targeted and click ‘Save to Card’ to register – make sure you use this card when booking.

How many points will you earn?

As a reminder, when you make a Homes & Villas rental, you earn points based on your total spend less booking fees, taxes, cleaning fees and extra add-ons.

Elite members of Marriott Bonvoy will earn a status bonus, taking their total earnings to:

  • Silver Elite: 20 points per dollar + 0.5 points per dollar status bonus
  • Gold Elite: 20 points per dollar + 1.25 points per dollar status bonus
  • Platinum Elite: 20 points per dollar + 2.5 points per dollar status bonus
  • Titanium Elite: 20 points per dollar + 3.75 points per dollar status bonus
  • Ambassador: 20 points per dollar + 3.75 points per dollar status bonus

…. and Gold and above receive additional points as a welcome gift:

  • Ambassador Elite, Titanium Elite, Platinum Elite: 1,000 points
  • Gold Elite: 500 points

You also earn 1 Marriott Bonvoy elite night credit per night. This is not doubled as part of the current Marriott Bonvoy double status nights offer.

Here’s a rough example of what you could earn.

  • You spend £500 on a 3-night stay somewhere, of which £75 is the cleaning fee and is therefore not eligible for points.
  • You get £150 cashback from American Express.
  • You earn, assuming you have Gold status with Marriott, (£425 x 1.35) $575 x 21.25 points + 500 points = 12,718 Marriott Bonvoy points. These are worth £63 given our 0.5p per Bonvoy point valuation.

Put these two offers together and you’re getting over 40% back on your stay.
