Marriott Bonvoy has released a promotion covering the summer period. It sounds very lucrative from the promotion name, doesn’t it? It’s certainly a simple concept, with 1,500 bonus points on every stay of at least two nights. As a welcome departure from previous Marriott promotions, this applies from your first stay.
You need to register first, at this page
The promotion covers all stays until September 16th. You have until September 2nd to register, but I’d suggest registering now anyway. Even if you have no Marriott stays planned, it’s there waiting in your account should anything come up.
Is it worthwhile?
If you were staying in Marriott properties anyway, it is a literal bonus. Would I switch a lengthy/costly stay away from a Hilton (with double points promo)? Almost certainly not, but for a two night, low cost stay 1,500 Marriott Bonvoy points would be a welcome extra.
Once registered, you get a lovely progress bar in the promotions section of your Marriott Bonvoy account.
Don’t forget that Marriott Bonvoy points can be used for more than just Marriott hotel stays, and with reasonable value in many cases.
They can be moved to a number of airline mileage schemes at a rate of 3:1, with 5,000 bonus miles when moving 60,000 points. You can also use them for Marriott Moments, covering a number of culinary, music and sporting events as well as travel packages which offer bundles of hotel stays and airline miles.
