Back in April Marriott Bonvoy announced that it was extending status, points validity, free night awards, and more. Well, we’re now seeing free night awards and points validity being extended once again.
Marriott free night awards valid through August 2021
Eligible Marriott Bonvoy free night awards (FNAs) are being extended through August 1, 2021:
- Effective December 11, 2020, free night awards with an original expiration date before July 31, 2021, will be automatically extended
- This applies to free night awards received as a co-brand credit card benefit, annual choice benefit, promotion, or travel package
- Free night awards with an original expiration date prior to 2020 will not be eligible for the additional extension
Free night awards are valid through August 2021
Marriott Bonvoy points validity extended
Previously the expiration of Marriott Bonvoy points was paused through February 1, 2021. That’s now being extended by a further six months, through August 1, 2021. As a reminder, Bonvoy points ordinarily expire after 24 months of inactivity.
Bonvoy points won’t expire for an additional six months
Marriott is extending the validity of free night awards and points through August 2021, which is a great development for members. I suspect we’ll continue to see loyalty programs give members more time to redeem their rewards, given the circumstances.
Will you benefit from this Marriott Bonvoy extension?
