Bonvoy Gold – bonus points for stay?
7th September 2022 at 14:30DTR
Hi folks. I had 2 recent stays at a Marriott as a gold member, both on points with a paid upgrade. I didn’t receive any recognition of status or anything beside a 500ml bottle of water on arrival.
Should I have at least had 2,000 points welcome, or not as they were redemption nights?7th September 2022 at 14:48degsy
Yep you should get bonus amenity points for reward stays. Only 250 or 500 though, depending on which brand7th September 2022 at 20:58RobHfP Staff
Not as Gold.
‘As a Platinum Elite, Titanium Elite or Ambassador Elite member, you’ll receive a special gift upon arrival at participating hotels, with a choice of an amenity gift or points. If guarantee is not met, guest compensation applies.’7th September 2022 at 22:45DTR
Ok thanks Rob.18th September 2022 at 18:26DTR
Turns out I did get a 500 point bonus – go figure!19th September 2022 at 07:54degsy
I’ve always received 250 or 500 points with Marriott as a Gold, on both paid and reward stays. And, earlier this year, for a 3 night reward stay I made separate bookings for each night (in order to capitalise on any favourable points movements) , I got 3x 500.1st November 2022 at 08:31JPG
You should get 250-500 points as Gold, appearing as “Extra” on the app.1st November 2022 at 08:54NorthernLass
I did 2 paid nights at a Marriott a week ago and haven’t received any kind of points yet – I’ve forgotten how long they normally take as I haven’t stayed at a Marriott property since before the pandemic! The 2 x Amex rebates appeared within 48 hours though.1st November 2022 at 10:33rjn21

My experience recently is highly variable times for Bonvoy posting. Reims – La Caserne Chanzy – Autograph – posted overnight from checkout inc the 2000 bonus.
AC Manchester Salford Quays – Never posts anything automatically. Always have to chase Bonvoy for the stay and 2,000 bonus (which can’t be done until ~14 days after the stay), and separately chase the property if the room rate had bonus points (they never answer the phone, no public email address, I now have a named person email who has so far fixed the rate bonus after 2 weeks).
Amex £50 off has also credited within 2 business days of the triggering charge on 4 cards so far.
