Finding Certificate(s) In Your Bonvoy Account – Desktop

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

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 “overview” will direct you to a page that looks like this…

…and if you scroll down the page you’ll see any certificates you may have underneath the details of the status you hold.

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

…and your certificates (assuming you have at least one) will be on the screen in front of you.

Finding Certificate(s) In Your Bonvoy Account – Mobile App

Note: The following screenshots were taken using an iPhone SE. Andriod users may see slightly different images.

Open the Marriott Bonvoy app and you should be presented with a screen that looks a little like this:

Click on the “account” symbol on the bottom-right of the screen to open up your account information…

…and scroll down the page to where you’ll see the app displaying how many certificates you have (assuming you have any at all):

Clicking on the certificates link will open up a new page in the app where you’ll be able to see exactly what certificate(s) have been uploaded to your account by Chase and/or Amex:

Bottom Line

You don’t need to be a rocket scientist 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.
