Marriott Bonvoy has released details of the promotion that will run from February 7th until April 23rd, 2023.
Members can earn:
- 1,000 bonus points per night
- Double elite night credits
With Marriott Bonvoy promotions, only paid stays qualify. Cash + Points, Free Night Awards (certificates) and points redemptions DO NOT COUNT.
Is it Any Good?
A double elite night credit promotion certainly helps members interested in reaching Platinum status or higher. Platinum status requires 50 nights in a year. Titanium status requires 75 nights per year. When combined with one or more co-branded credit cards, you can pick up useful elite status quite quickly this winter/early spring!
However, 1,000 bonus points only works out to $7-8 per night. That might be a reasonable rebate on cheap hotel stays, but it certainly won’t incentivize you to choose Marriott for an expensive stay.
Marriott ran a double elite night promotion in early 2022 as well. It must work well as a way of driving early-in-the-year stays from the status conscious…
But now that my lifetime status has been safely acquired, that incentive no longer works for me… What about you? Let us know in the comments section…
