Marriott Bonvoy has released details of its latest chain-wide promotion. The promotion will run between 13 August and 18 October, 2020.
The promotion has two elements:
- 2,500 bonus points per STAY
- A one-time 5,000 bonus points after your THIRD STAY
You must register in order to receive your bonus points. Previously-booked stays WILL qualify (so no need to cancel and re-book)
Hopefully you are familiar by now with what constitutes a “stay”. A “stay” is defined as consecutive nights spent at the same hotel, regardless of check-in/checkout activity on any points-eligible rate (“Qualifying Rate”).
In simple terms, a paid stay booked directly with Marriott will qualify. Award stays, or stays booked via an Online Travel Agency, will NOT.
The Bottom Line
I reckon that 2,500 bonus points is worth approximately £13.50 – 15.00. Does that move the needle in terms of choosing Marriott over the competition? It is certainly more lucrative than Hilton’s 2,000 much less valuable points per stay promo…
But as is often the case, those members who enjoy long, expensive stays will be very badly short-changed with this “per stay” flat bonus. Those of us who hop from hotel to hotel every night will do much better…
