Marriott Bonvoy is one of the largest hotel loyalty programs in the world and has an extraordinary portfolio of 30 hotel brands across the globe. In the Marriott portfolio, members can earn and redeem points at 7,000+ of the world’s most desired hotels, including The Ritz-CarltonTM, SheratonTM, WestinTM, Delta Hotels and many more. You can earn Marriott Bonvoy points while enjoying a romantic in-room dinner at the W Montreal or booking business-trip accommodations at the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre. Then, you can redeem those points on future hotel stays, Marriott Bonvoy MomentsTM , car rentals, or transfer them to frequent flyer airline programs, just to name a few. Marriott Bonvoy members can also access other benefits, such as special rates at participating brands.
There are many ways to earn Marriott Bonvoy points, and the great part is, the points you earn do not expire as long as you are active at least once within 24 consecutive months1. With a little creativity, you can combine options to multiply your earnings. A few ideas to consider:
From free nights to discounted stays, late checkouts to complimentary breakfasts, your Marriott Bonvoy points and status can turn a long weekend getaway into a relaxing retreat and take some of the stress out of business trips.
Reap Marriott Bonvoy benefits the moment you sign up, with complimentary Wi-Fi, discounted room rates and mobile check-in services. You can move up through each of the program’s five elite tiers (Silver Elite, Gold Elite, Platinum Elite, Titanium Elite and Ambassador Elite) by booking qualifying overnight stays. The more you stay, the easier it is to climb even higher.
Staying the required number of qualifying nights will get you to a higher status, but there is another way that can help you get there. With the Marriott Bonvoy™ American Express® Card, receive complimentary Marriott Bonvoy Silver Elite Status and 15 Elite Night Credits each calendar year, getting you to your next status faster. That means, if you stay 10 more nights in one calendar year, you reach Gold Elite Status.3
Alternatively, you can also enjoy an automatic upgrade to Marriott Bonvoy Gold Elite Status when you reach $30,000 in purchases charged to your Card each year.4
