Finding certificates in your Bonvoy account – Desktop

Head over to Marriot.com where you’ll see a page that looks a little like this:

a screenshot of a website

In the top-right of the screen, you’ll either see your name or the option to sign in. Click here.

At this point, you’ll either be presented with a login screen…

…or you’ll see a dropdown menu appear.

If you see the login screen, enter your details, and then, once logged in, click on your name in the top-right corner to deploy the drop-down menu.

From this dropdown menu, there are two paths to seeing what certificates you have in your account.

You can choose to click on “overview” or “activity”

Clicking on “activity” (the easier way to see your certificates) will take you to a page like this…

You don’t need to be a genius to find your Marriott free night certificates if they’re already in your account, but if you’re waiting for a certificate to be issued and you have no other certificates in your account, it’s good to know what part of your account to keep an eye on so you know when the certificate appears.
