When it comes to collecting hotel rewards, Marriott points are some of the most flexible. Not only can they be used to stay at over 7,000 hotels around the world, but you also can transfer them to airlines for award flights on 40+ airline partners.
Even better, right now is a good time to earn more Marriott points because of the limited-time, increased 100,000-point offer after spending $5,000 on purchases in the first three months on the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless™ Credit Card, along with the bonuses you can earn with the Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant™ American Express® Card and Marriott Bonvoy Business™ American Express® Card. Earning the welcome bonus on any of these cards will get you that much closer to your next vacation.
The first step to take when it comes to earning and redeeming Marriott points is to set up a loyalty account. The good news is it’s free and easy. Here, I’ll show you how to set up your Marriott loyalty account online.
A step-by-step guide to setting up a Marriott loyalty account
Step 1. Go to the Marriott Website
The first step in opening a Marriott account is to go to Marriott’s website. Click on “Sign In or Join” on the right upper hand corner of the homepage.
From there, you’ll be redirected and have the option to either sign in with an existing account or to create a new profile. Click the “Join Now” button to register.
Step 2. Fill out the registration form
To complete the registration form, you’ll only have to enter a few personal details. Signing up for a Marriott loyalty account is far easier than getting an airline frequent flyer account. You’ll only need to provide basic info:
- Your name
- Zip code
- Preferred password
Make sure you enter your information correctly because you won’t have a chance to review it prior to confirming your account.
Once the form is complete, click the “Join” button to instantly create a Marriott loyalty account.
You also have the option of registering for a Marriott loyalty account using Facebook. Just click on the “Sign in with Facebook” button and you’ll be prompted to fill in your login credentials from Facebook. There isn’t much to it – you’ll be automatically registered for Marriott’s rewards program and you’ll just continue to sign in to Marriott using your Facebook profile from there on out.
Step 3. Confirmation
After registering, you’ll be taken directly to your Marriott loyalty account profile page. From there you can add your contact details and further manage your loyalty account.
