Targeted Marriott Bonvoy promotions for bonus points / free night certs


Targeted Marriott Bonvoy promotions have been rolling out to earn additional bonus points and/or free night certificates with paid stays. I got one in my account that I intend to mattress run as I can pick up 22,500 points for a pretty low price, but some people have seen even better offers. It’s worth checking your account to see what you’ve got.

The Deal

  • Targeted Marriott Bonvoy promotions labeled “Exclusively for You” are rolling out to many members to earn bonus points and/or free night certificates for paid stay activity
    • Find your promotions by logging in, clicking your name, and then the “promotions” tab (this link may work after logging in)
    • Alternatively, find promotions in the app by clicking “account” in the bottom right corner and then scrolling down to “promotions”

Key Terms

  • Time frame to complete an offer varies. See full details in your offer.

Quick Thoughts

You’ll find your targeted Marriott Bonvoy promotions under the “promotions” tab in the app or in your online account. If you’re using the Marriott app, you’ll click “Account” in the bottom right corner and then scroll down to “promotions”. If you’re using the desktop website, click the down arrow next to your name and then you’ll see “promotions” down the list of options.

My wife came up totally empty in her account — it just says that they’re still working on adding promotions when she goes to the promo tab.

However, I had a new promotion show up yesterday under my account as shown in the screen shot above. As you can see, I can earn 7,500 bonus points after my first paid stay and 15,000 additional points after my second paid stay. I don’t have any intention to stay in a hotel right now, but I have a Marriott nearby that costs $50 per night ($54 with tax). For $108 total over two stays, I’ll end up with more than 24,000 total points (22.5K from this promotion + 1,750 from earning 17.5x on the $100 paid rate as a Titanium member). That is mattress run-worthy to me as I can put 24K points to use to book a few Category 1 nights on 2021 road trips and save well more than $100. I’ll book through a shopping portal to mitigate some of the tax.

Some offers may be even better. For example, one member of our Frequent Miler Insiders Facebook group reports receiving this offer for 4,500 bonus points after two paid stays plus 2 free night awards for 2 paid nights.

The free night certificates with this offer are valid for a night costing up to 35K points and are valid for 6 months from issuance, so those limits may not appeal to those who won’t be traveling right away to use them (though the reader who got it notes that it ends 3/31/21, so you could either wait to register or wait to meet the stay requirement to have certificates valid for a longer stretch into 2021.

Others reported offers like double points on weekend nights or 4K bonus points after first weekend stay, 6K after a second weekend stay, and 8K after a third weekend stay. I’d be less likely to go after that offer, but if you have plans that fit the offer it obviously makes sense to register.
