Marriott has launched a 7-day set of promotions which when bundled together it’s calling its “Week of Wonders”. The deals on offer include discounted awards nights, discounts on Marriott’s boutique (amenity) ranges, free nights for Homes & Villas bookings, and more.
Marriott’s Week Of Wonders Promotions
Wonders of Discovery
Through 15 October 2020 Bonvoy members can book Reward nights “for up to 33%” less and Marriott has said that, effectively, “all redemption pricing at participating hotels will be in off-peak rates“.
More than a little annoyingly Marriott doesn’t appear to have provided any terms and conditions on the specific promotion page so there’s no guide telling Bonvoy members how far out they can book. Fortunately, the Marriott press release gives us more information – the booking period only goes out to 30 November 2020.
Wonders of Comfort
If you’ve ever stayed at a Marriott property and thought that you’d like to have one or more of the amenities on offer available to you at home, Marriott Bonvoy Boutiques has you covered. Now, and only through 15 October, Marriott is offering 30% off all merchandise including items like The Westin Heavenly Bed, The Ritz-Carlton Fragrance Collection, EDITION Hotels La Labo amenities, St. Regis Frette Collection, and W Hotels robes.
Wonders of Rejuvenation
This isn’t so much a new promotion as two old promotions put together and wrapped up in new packaging – this is Marriott Bonvoy Escapes with Marriott Escape To Luxury in a slightly different guise.
- Marriott Bonvoy Escapes runs between 8 and 11 October 2020
- Marriott Escape To Luxury runs between 14 and 15 October 2020
Hotels and resorts throughout the U.S., Canada, the Caribbean, and Latin America are offering discounts of up to 25% on the best flexible rate.
Wonders of Excitement
This is simply a restatement of Marriott’s promotion that’s running through 18 October and which is offering Bonvoy members 2,500 points for each stay and a one-time bonus of 5,000 points after three stays.
Other Marriott Promotions
Buy Marriott Points – Marriott is currently running a points sale in which it’s offering a 50% bonus on all purchases of 2,000 points or more. This could be useful if you need to top up an account to make the most of the lower Reward Night rates that are on offer through 30 November (link to more sale details)

All-Inclusive – Almost exactly a year ago, Marriott announced that it would be introducing all-inclusive resorts into its portfolio (link to details). Now Marriott is inviting Bonvoy members to an “exclusive preview experience to enjoy the most coveted all-inclusive stays in the Caribbean and Latin America while earning Marriott Bonvoy Points.” (link to All-inclusive page).

Marriott has published a small list of promotions that it’s running through 15 October. None of the promotions are particualry amazing but if you have the need to travel before the end of November, the reduced cost of award nights could be helpful.
