INSIDER SECRET: Marriott Points aren’t just great for hotel stays; you can also transfer Marriott Points to over 40 airline partners.

With the latest targeted Marriott promotion you can earn up to 5,000 bonus points for paid stays that include a weekend night. Eligible paid stays made by September 30, 2019, will qualify.

Marriott Promotions

There are now 31 Marriott hotel brands, so you’ve got plenty of options for taking advantage of these deals. Just keep in mind that certain promotions aren’t eligible with every brand.

Marriott Weekend Stay Promotion (Targeted)

Promotion dates: Through September 30, 2019

Register by: Targeted offer, so check your terms

Terms: 

  • Earn 2,000 bonus points for your first eligible paid stay that includes a weekend night
  • Earn 3,000 bonus points for your second eligible paid stay that includes a weekend night
  • A weekend night is a Friday or Saturday night
  • A stay is consecutive nights spent at a participating hotel regardless of check-in/checkout activity
  • Must pay a “Qualifying rate” to be eligible

Good Deal or Not:

This isn’t a spectacular offer, but as always it’s a good idea to register if you’re targeted because even if your travel plans don’t include a paid Marriott stay, you never know if that will change. And if you end up having one or two 1-night stays on a Friday or Saturday you’d earn a solid bonus.

This offer should stack with Marriott’s Endless Earning promotion and the other targeted offers outlined below.

Marriott Endless Earning Promotion

Promotion dates: July 2 to September 16, 2019

Register by: September 2, 2019

Terms: 

Good Deal or Not:

This isn’t a promotion worth going out of your way to take advantage of but, as always, it worth taking a minute to register. Marriott is marketing this promotion as “Endless Earning: Earn points with no limits.” But there are only a certain number of two-night stays you make.

The 1,500 bonus points are okay if you’re staying only two nights, but for longer stays the bonus could end up amounting to next to nothing per dollar spent or per night stayed.

Targeted Marriott Promotions

The terms for my double elite-night credits promotion are:

  • Runs through July 31, 2019
  • If you’ve elected to earn miles, you aren’t eligible for this promotion
  • Stays at Marriott Executive Apartments, Marriott Vacation Club (owner-occupied stays) and Execustay are not eligible
  • Only paid stays are eligible
  • Only one room per stay is eligible
  • Nights stayed prior to enrollment are not eligible

This is a decent offer if you’re chasing Marriott status, but don’t forget that you can get 15 elite-night credits every calendar year just by having a Marriott card, like the Marriott Bonvoy Business™ American Express® Card or the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless™ Credit Card.

The terms for the double-points-on-weekend-stays promotion are similar:

  • Valid through Aug. 31, 2019
  • Stay must include a weekend night (Friday or Saturday)
  • If you’ve elected to earn miles, you aren’t eligible for this promotion
  • Stays at Marriott Executive Apartments, Marriott Vacation Club (owner-occupied stays) and Execustay are not eligible
  • Only paid stays are eligible
  • Only one room per stay is eligible
  • Nights stayed prior to enrollment are not eligible

Most Marriott stays earn 10 base Marriott points per dollar (Element, TownPlace suites, and Residence Inn stays on earn 5 Marriott points per dollar). So you can earn up to 20 Marriott points per dollar, plus any bonus points for which you are eligible if you have Marriott elite status.

You can also earn 6 Marriott points per dollar spent at participating Marriott hotels if you pay with the Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant™ American Express® Card.

Were you targeted for either of these offers or something different altogether? Let me know in the comments.

Marriott New Account Promotion

To qualify, you’ll need to apply for a new Marriott Bonvoy account through this link before November 28, 2019.

Then you’ll just need to complete 2 paid stays at participating Marriott hotels before October 28, 2019, and you earn an electronic free night certificate valid for hotels costing up to 25,000 points.  The certificate expires one year after being issued.

Again, the terms say this is available only for new members of the Marriott Bonvoy program. It might be possible that if you previously had a Starwood or Marriott loyalty account and closed it before the transition to Marriott Bonvoy that you would qualify, but I doubt it.

And please don’t create a dummy account in an attempt to game the promotion because you could risk having your other Marriott account closed. It’s not worth the risk.

When did Marriott open a shopping portal? How did I miss this? What’s the rates per store? Anyone have any good/bad feedback?

daily prizes are posting again, so get back at the 29 ways game. also, wife’s account got targeted for the free night and have already completed the 2 stays to earn it. love the free 35k point night 🙂

That’s a great deal! I remember the good ole days when the MegaBonus was earn a free night after 2 stays…sigh, we won’t be seeing that one again.

What was the title of the email that your wife received for the free night with 2 stays?

It would show up to you as “Michael, This Offer is Just for You”. She received it on October 8th if that helps. Just had to register and complete 2 stays

Same for me. No prize on second try.

Not able to win another daily prize on my second try only the first.

Fyi, they changed the rules, now you can win a prize each day.
