Earn Marriott Bonvoy points in Canada

Credit card sign-up bonuses

Marriott Bonvoy partners with American Express in Canada by issuing two Marriott Bonvoy credit cards (one for individuals and one for SMEs).

By applying for either of these credit cards, you can earn a welcome bonus of up to 85,000 Marriott Bonvoy points. If you apply for both credit cards, you can earn up to 170,000 Marriott Bonvoy points.

If you are a couple – or with a travel companion – you can earn between 170,000 and 340,000 Marriott Bonvoy points !

Point transfers

You can also transfer points to Marriott Bonvoy from one of these seven American Express Membership Rewards Cards:

The transfer rate is 1:1.2 (or 5:6). This means that if you transfer 10,000 Membership Rewards points, you will receive 12,000 Marriott Bonvoy points.

Transfer up to 100,000 points per year

Each year, you can transfer up to 100,000 Marriott Bonvoy points for free from one Marriott Bonvoy account to another. It is a convenient method to book hotel nights from a single account to:

  • Combine points earned on a spouse or a travel buddy’s Marriott Bonvoy credit cards.
  • Benefit from a Marriott Bonvoy Elite status
  • Earn Elite nights for renewal of a status
  • Book hotel nights with points by taking advantage of the “Stay 5 nights, Pay for 4” tip.

Stay for 5, Pay for 4

When redeeming your Marriott Bonvoy points, you can benefit from the “Stay for 4, pay for 4” perk.

With this advantage, you save about 20% of your booking price, so you use fewer points for a longer stay!
