My take on this promotion
This is one of the best promotions that Marriott Bonvoy has offered since the program has been launched.
Usually, Marriott Bonvoy members earn:
- 10 points per dollar at most brands
- 5 points per dollar at Element, Residence Inn and TownePlace Suites hotels
And those with Elite status, earn even more points:
- 10% bonus points for Silver Elite members
- 25% bonus points for Gold Elite members
- 50% bonus points for Platinum Elite members
- 75% bonus points for Titanium Elite and Ambassador Elite members
Finally, Marriott Bonvoy credit cardmembers also earn 5 points per dollar for all purchases made at Marriott Bonvoy properties.
Being a Titanium Elite member and a Marriott Bonvoy™ American Express® Cardmember, I earn up to 32.5 points per dollar with this promotion:
- 20 points per dollar for my stays in most hotels (double points)
- 7.5 points per dollar as a Titanium Elite member (on base points earned)
- 5 points per dollar with my Marriott Bonvoy expenses on my Marriott Bonvoy™ American Express® Card
Knowing that I value Marriott Bonvoy points at 0.9 Canadian cents, that’s a 30% return on my Marriott Bonvoy spend during this promotion!
Since international travel is limited at the moment, I have put together the complete map of Marriott Bonvoy Hotels in Canada:
Finally, for the bonus Elite Nights promotion, it will be especially relevant for those who have the opportunity to earn a Platinum Elite status (a status that comes with benefits such as free breakfasts and access to hotel lounges: practical for families).
If you have a Marriott Bonvoy credit card, you automatically get 15 Elite Nights per Year. This means you are only 35 Elite nights short of achieving Platinum Elite status. With this promotion, you will only have 18 nights to complete.
Also, Marriott Bonvoy members who achieved elite status in 2020 will receive an Elite Nights credit equivalent to 50% of what they accumulated in 2020:
|2020 Elite status||Elite Nights bonus|
|Silver Elite||5 Elite Nights|
|Gold Elite||13 Elite Nights|
|Platinum Elite||25 Elite Nights|
|Titanium Elite||38 Elite Nights|
|Ambassador Elite||50 Elite Nights|
These elite nights were deposited in the account of eligible Marriott Bonvoy members on February 1, 2021.
So if you had Gold Elite status in 2020, you get 13 Elite Nights, which is in addition to the 15 Elite Nights of your Marriott Bonvoy™ American Express® Card. Wow, that’s 28 Elite nights before this promotion!
That means you only have to stay 11 nights during the promotion to earn 22 Elite Nights!
If you are not yet a Marriott Bonvoy™ American Express® Cardmember, this is a great time to become one!
