Marriott promo: Earn 1k bonus points + 1 bonus elite night credit each night


Marriott has launched a new promotion which is offering 1,000 bonus points plus an additional elite night credit for every night you stay from mid-February until (nearly) the end of April.

It’s not clear if this is a global promotion where all Marriott Bonvoy members are eligible, or if it’s a targeted offer. If you do have this promotion available on your account but you have issues trying to register for it, we also have a tip for how to get registered below.

Quick Thoughts

While this isn’t a spectacular promotion in terms of how many bonus points you can earn, the ability to earn two elite night credits for every night you stay could be very useful indeed for those looking to earn elite status with Marriott Bonvoy this year as it could give you a good boost.

That’s provided you’ll be booking paid stays with Marriott though as award nights and Cash + Points rates aren’t eligible for this promotion. You can potentially save money on those paid stays courtesy of the several targeted Marriott Amex Offers floating around at the moment.

Speaking of targeted, it’s not clear if this is a targeted promotion or not. The way it’s set up and the fact that I found it on both my account and my wife’s leads me to believe that it’s a global promotion that everyone should be eligible for. The link in the post above links directly to the promotion registration page, but I initially found it on the generic Promotions page on my Marriott account.

Unfortunately Marriott frequently has issues with people being unable to register for promotions that show up on their account. I’d say that’s because there’s no ‘IT’ in Marriott, but there is. Having said that, there’s also ‘arr’ in Marriott which is likely what at least some Bonvoy members will be saying when they try to register, and not because they’re pirates.

If you do have problems registering for the promotion, you could try sending a DM to MBonvoyAssist. Many readers have had success using that method in the past, so hopefully that’s still a useful option. Actually, hopefully you don’t have any issues registering for the promo in the first place, but at least it’s a backup option if needed.

I have 2 stays coming up at Marriott properties that I booked through AMEX FHR. Will they qualify for this promotion? FHR is not listed under “non-qualifying rate” and typically earns Marriott points.


Yes I did and they do show up in my Marriott account as upcoming trips so I’m thinking they will count but it is Marriott so I may end up being Bonvoyed.


Promo wasn’t showing in my account, and when I used the link provided in this article, it was telling me that I wasn’t eligible for it.

I DM’ed Bonvoy support as the article suggested, and they were super helpful and registered me to the promo..

Thanks guys!


Shows up in app but errors registering for it. Will give it a week or two and then call customer service after that. Had the same issue last year and had to be manually registered on the phone.


Talked to a phone agent and my account was registered from the promotion even though it doesn’t show up in app yet. They confirmed right away that many people are having trouble with the registration showing up correctly for this.


I was able to register for the promo for both my account and my wife’s account. We haven’t stayed at Marriott hotels in the last few months and have low status (Gold for me, Silver for my wife).


I can book an eligible hotel for $52 a night. At what point, if any, is a mattress run worth considering?

great post, thanks

Here’s the equation:

[ Marginal Marriott Status Value ] = [ # of Nights needed for status ] X [ Avg Cost / Night ]

Keep in mind, if your goal is Marriott Platinum then you can also get Platinum automatically with the Amex Brilliant card for $650. There are some extra benefits with that card that make it so that the annual fee is offset (dining, 85k free night award), though that version of Platinum doesn’t include the 50-night choice benefits.

So let’s say that you are aiming for Platinum and the real cost to you for that card is $260 (to keep the math nice). [ $260 for Platinum ] / [ $52 / night ] is 5 paid nights; this promotion would count that as 10 elite nights, which is your break-even point. If you can get to Platinum 8 elite nights (4 paid nights from this promotion), then do the mattress run. If you need >10 elite nights to get Platinum (>5 paid nights with this promotion), then the mattress run isn’t worth it and you should just sign up for the Amex Brilliant.

Your situation/valuation/goals could very easily be much different than this hypothetical, so adjust the numbers as needed to figure out what is best for yourself.


in my dream, i see hyatt offers this promotion too :))


In my dream I see Hyatt offering a promotion, too. 🙂


2015 Hyatt Promo:
15 nights + 30,000 points = 30,000
20 nights + 15,000 points = 45,000
25 nights + 20,000 points = 65,000


Some people haven’t seen this promotion in their account. Patience. There seems to be a roll-out issue. If it doesn’t appear by the start date, call customer service. Best of luck.
