Additional points obtained via status
And if you are an elite member of the Marriott Bonvoy program, you can earn additional points over and above the base points earned:
|Status||Base point bonus|
|Elite Titanium & Ambassador||75%|
Elite Silver status can be earned directly with a Marriott BonvoyTM American ExpressMD Card or Marriott BonvoyMD Corporate American ExpressMD Card subscription.
Gold Elite status can be earned directly with the Platinum Card® from American Express (as can many other statuses and benefits earned with this card).
Additional points earned through Marriott Bonvoy credit cards
Marriott Bonvoy cards(detailed in this article), earn 5 points per dollar for all purchases made at Marriott Bonvoy properties (overnight stays, meals, drinks…).
So as part of this promotion, here’s what you could earn based on your status and whether you use the Marriott BonvoyTM American ExpressMD Card to pay for your stay:
|Elite Silver||26 points / dollar|
|Elite Gold||27.5 points / dollar|
|Platinum Elite||30 points / dollar|
|Elite Titanium & Ambassador||32.5 points / dollar|
By valuing Marriott Bonvoy points at 0.9 cents CAD / dollar, we are talking about a return of 23.4% to 29.25%!
