Marriott recently announced the details of their next global promotion, which is valid for stays between July 2 and September 16, 2019.
The promotion isn’t very exciting at all — Marriott is offering 1,500 bonus points when you stay two or more nights, and that’s it.
Well, the good news is that Marriott seems to be offering select members targeted promotions for stays over the next few months as well. This is something that Starwood Preferred Guest consistently did back in the day with their “Member Exclusives” promotion, so I’m happy to see Marriott continuing that practice.
The thing is, you might be eligible for one of these promotions without being aware. For example, I’m eligible for an awesome promotion but haven’t received an email about it. To see if you’re eligible, log into your Marriott Bonvoy account, and go to the promotions section.
Once there, see if there’s anything listed in the “Exclusively for You” section.
In my case, I’m eligible for a promotion offering double elite nights on paid stays through September 30, 2019. The double elite nights is only eligible on paid stays, and they say the double elite nights will post within 3-5 days of when the regular elite nights post on eligible stays.
This is an awesome promotion for me. I’m way behind when it comes to requalifying for status with Marriott, so this is useful (though it doesn’t really help me requalify for Ambassador status, since that still has a $20,000 spending requirement).
There are other targeted promotions as well. For example, some members are eligible for double points on paid stays over the same period.
So make sure you log into your Marriott account and see if you’re eligible for something. While Marriott’s global promotion as such isn’t very exciting, when you combine the promotion with either double points or double elite nights, it’s a lot more lucrative.
Were you targeted for a promotion with Marriott Bonvoy, and if so, will you benefit from it?
