Marriott announced new membership benefits including:
- The Experiences Marketplace

- Guaranteed Late Check-Out
The Experiences Marketplace will be available to all Marriott and Ritz-Carlton Rewards members in late May 2016. You’ll be able to use your points for things like Broadway shows, cooking lessons, and even to hang out with your favorite sports team!
The Elite Concierge Service will at first be available ONLY to a select group of Marriott Rewards Elite members but will be expanded. You’ll get a dedicated concierge to help with anything you need during your stay, like on-site restaurant reservations, spa appointments, and special requests.
The Guaranteed Late Check-Out perk will be available to Marriott Rewards and Ritz-Carlton Rewards Gold & Platinum Elite members starting May 16, 2016. You’ll be able to check-out as late as 4:00 pm at participating hotels.
2. $100 in Wyndham Gift Cards, $10 Off Admission to Six Flags
The $100 in gift cards are issued as 4 gift codes worth $25 each to use on 4 separate stays at Wyndham hotels.
You can only earn 1 set of $100 gift cards (even if you stay more than twice). And they’ll come in an email 1 to 2 weeks after your 2nd qualifying stay.
There are restrictions:
- Register and stay by September 6, 2016 to earn the gift cards
- Use your gift cards by October 31, 2016, and stay by November 1, 2016
- Only one gift card can be used per stay
- Gift cards are NOT transferable
- Only qualified stays are eligible (for example, stays booked through online travel agencies like Orbitz or Expedia don’t count)
- Offer available to US and Canadian residents only
And when you book through Wyndham Rewards, you can save an additional 15% to 25% at participating hotels.
Wyndham hotels include:
- Baymont Inn and Suites
- Days Inn
- Hawthorn Suites
- Howard Johnson
- Knights Inn
- Super 8
- Wyndham Garden
- Wyndham Grand
Wyndham Rewards members can also get $10 off a ticket to any Six Flags park in the US. You can’t register for this promotion yet, but it will be valid through September 18, 2016. And you’ll get coupons for discounts inside the park, too!
3. Get Bonus Club Carlson Points on Stays This Summer
You can now register for Club Carlson’s “Stay More Get More” Promotion and earn bonus Club Carlson points when you stay at any Club Carlson hotel through July 31, 2016.
- 5,000 bonus points after
- Another 10,000 points after staying a total of 5 eligible nights
- Another 10,000 points after staying a total of 10 eligible nights
- And an additional 25,000 bonus points after completing a total of 15 or more eligible nights
You can earn a maximum of 50,000 Club Carlson points during the promotion. That’s is enough for 1 night at any Category 1 through 6 hotel.
I recommend registering for promotions like this even if you don’t have plans to stay at a Club Carlson hotel. Because you never know when you’ll get a last-minute travel opportunity!
