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 signing up for the Marriott Bonvoy® American Express®* Card, you can earn 50,000 Marriott Bonvoy points.
If you also sign up for the Marriott Bonvoy™ Business American Express® Card, you could also earn 50,000 Marriott Bonvoy points.
That’s 100,000 Marriott Bonvoy points with both credit cards.
If you are a couple – or with a travel companion – you can earn between 100,000 and 200,000 Marriott Bonvoy points!
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!
India and Marriott Bonvoy
India has nearly 130 Marriott Bonvoy properties. For the purposes of this article, we will focus on properties that are available between 5,000 and 20,000 points per night. Here are some examples of where we have stayed:
|Hotel||Points per night|
|Four Points by Sheraton Vadodara||5K-10K|
|Aloft New Delhi Aerocity||10K-15K|
|ITC Mughal – a Luxury Collection Hotel – Agra||15K-20K|
|JW Marriott Hotel Mumbai Sahar||20K-30K|
|Le Méridien New Delhi||20K-30K|
Here’s how much a 10-night stay in one of these hotels would cost in points:
- Hotels from 5,000 points: between 40,000 and 80,000 points
- Hotels from 10,000 points: between 80,000 and 120,000 points
- Hotels from 15,000 points: between 120,000 and 160,000 points
- Hotels from 20,000 points: between 160,000 and 240,000 points
So, with the welcome bonus from one credit card, you could get more than 12 free nights at a hotel costing 5,000 points per night:
|1||5 000||7||5 000|
|2||5 000||8||5 000|
|3||5 000||9||5 000|
|6||5 000||12||5 000|
12-night stay = from 50,000 points!
If you are a couple or with a friend (OR if you both sign up for the two Marriott Bonvoy credit cards) that’s over 24 free nights!
Jean-François stayed in several of these hotels during his trip to India: as you will see below, they arecomfortable and particularly well located.
