Marriott appears to be continuing to take the same lackadaisical approach to global promotions that we’ve come to expect from the hotelier (it hasn’t bothered to come up with a new global promotion for Q1) but in the lead up to Christmas, we started to see select Bonvoy members being targeted for a variety of new deals. Now, more people appear to have been targeted.

I can’t remember the last time I was targeted by Marriott for a promotion that wasn’t open to every other Bonvoy member so I wasn’t particularly surprised when I wasn’t targeted for the promotions that appeared earlier this month. As of today, however, a new promotion is sitting in my account.

Marriott’s targeted promotions come in a variety of guises (some a noticeably better than others) and the one that I’ve been targeted for is this one:

When broken down, this is what the whole promotion looks like:

  • Stay at any of over 7,000 participating hotels and resorts worldwide now through 03/31/2021.
  • Get 6,000 bonus points after one stay
  • Get 7,500 additional points after a second stay
  • Get a further 9,000 points after a third stay

Full terms and conditions for this particular promotion have been reproduced at the end of this post.

I value Marriott Bonvoy Points at 0.6 cents each so this promotion is offering me rebates of $36, $45, and $54 on my first three stays. That makes the promotion worth considering if I’m only making very short stays but it’s not really enough to move the needle if I get the opportunity for a longer stay before 31 March.

Some of the offers that people have been reporting include the following:

  • Get two free night certificates worth up to 35,000 points each after two paid stays – 1 certificate after the first stay and a second certificate after the second stay (certificates are only valid for 6 months).
  • Get up to 9,000 bonus Bonvoy points after three paid stays.
  • Get up to 12,000 bonus Bonvoy points after two paid stays.
  • Get up to 18,000 bonus Bonvoy points after three weekend paid stays.
  • Get up to 22,000 bonus Bonvoy points after three paid stays.

The first of these offers is clearly the best offer around (and may even be worth a mattress run or two if you can be sure that you’ll be able to use the certificates within 6 months) while the 9,000 point offer is clearly the worst.

Registration is required for these promotions and if you’re not sure where to check to see if you’ve been targeted, you can follow THIS LINK or you can follow the steps set out below.

Desktop

  • Login to your account at Marriott.com.
  • Click on your name in the top right corner of the homepage.

  • Click on the link to “Promotions” that you should see in the dropdown menu.

  • If you’ve been targeted for a promotion you’ll find it on the next screen you see.

Mobile App

  • Open the Bonvoy App
  • Tap on “Account” in the bottom left corner of the Marriott Bonvoy home screen.

  • Now tap on the ” Promotions” link that you should see on your account page.

  • If you’ve been targeted for a promotion you’ll find it on the next screen you see.

Bottom Line

Marriott appears to be targeting more people for the promotions that first started to appear before Christmas. Most people don’t seem to be receiving emails to let them know that they have been targeted (I have yet to get an email from Marriott about this) so you’ll have to check your Marriott Bonvoy accounts to see if you’ve been chosen for a chance to earn bonus points by staying with Marriott in the coming months.
