Link Marriott & Uber Accounts, Earn 3,000 Points

Link Marriott & Uber Accounts, Earn 3,000 Points

7

Marriott and Uber have a partnership, allowing Bonvoy members to earn points when spending with Uber and Uber Eats. If you haven’t yet downloaded the Uber or Uber Eats app and linked your accounts, there’s a great incentive to do so at the moment.

New members can earn 3,000 bonus Bonvoy points

At the moment it’s possible to earn 3,000 Marriott Bonvoy points when you download the Uber or Uber Eats app and then link your Marriott Bonvoy account:

  • This is valid December 16-31, 2022
  • This is valid for accounts registered in the United States that haven’t previously downloaded the Uber or Uber Eats app and linked their Marriott Bonvoy account
  • There’s not even a requirement to make a purchase, as you can earn the points just for linking accounts
  • Bonus points will post within four to six weeks

Personally I value Bonvoy points at 0.7 cents each, so to me this is like a ~$21 bonus. That’s excellent, when you consider that you get this just for downloading the app and linking your accounts, without there even being a purchase requirement.

Now, a few things to note:

  • This is open to all Marriott Bonvoy members, per the terms & conditions of the offer, though there’s no mention of it on the page where you link accounts
  • Some members are being emailed about this offer, though the targeting seems poor, as I received this email even though my accounts are already linked
  • An official Marriott representative posted about this offer in a Marriott Facebook group

How the Marriott & Uber partnership works

With the Marriott Bonvoy and Uber partnership, you can earn 2-6x Bonvoy points per dollar spent with Uber, depending on the type of transaction (for context, I value Bonvoy points at 0.7 cents each):

  • Earn 6x Bonvoy points per dollar spent on Uber Eats deliveries to hotels operating under the Marriott brand with a minimum $25 basket; I value that at an incremental 4.2% return
  • Earn 2x Bonvoy points per dollar spent on non-hotel deliveries and food pick-ups with a minimum $25 basket; I value that at an incremental 1.4% return
  • Earn 3x Bonvoy points on Uber XL, Comfort, and Black rides; I value that at an incremental 2.1% return

Bottom line

Through December 31, 2022, you can earn 3,000 bonus Bonvoy accounts when you download the Uber or Uber Eats app link your Marriott Bonvoy account. This is an excellent offer, as I value those points at ~$21, and there’s not even a requirement to make a purchase. Just downloading the app and linking your account is enough.

Are any OMAAT readers planning to take advantage of this offer?

    The Japanese version does not seem to be supported. The Marriott link does not appear.

    I just checked. I’ve earned way more points via Uber & Eats than staying at Marriott hotels this year!

    My accounts are linked.
    I've never received credit.
    Marriott says it's Uber's problem
    Uber says it's a Marriott issue.

      Hi - I'm waiting to - my understanding from experience is that if Uber is making the offer they are the one who must send the points...but Marriott should be willing to help to

    The "how to" information for linking is incorrect. The Uber app no longer has a settings icon in the upper left. To get to Settings, click "Account" at the bottom of the screen, scroll down to "Settings", scroll down to Marriott Bonvoy.

    Ben, along the lines of promotions - Aegean is running a great one where all you have to do is hit "take part" and click on a "milestone" you celebrated this year and can earn a few thousand miles. Free flights to the islands is nothing to scoff at :)

    This should enhance the Uber One credits offered by Cap One on certain cards, right? Since you actually pay and then receive a credit. The amount spent will receive the Marriott Bonvoy points?
