My take on this Marriott Bonvoy promotion
This Marriott Bonvoy promotion has two components:
- Double Elite Nights
- 1,000 bonus points per night
Double Elite Nights
Suppose your goal is to earn or renew Marriott Bonvoy Elite status in 2022. In that case, you’ll want to register for this Marriott Bonvoy promotion and stay at Marriott hotels between February 8 and May 4, 2022.
During this promotion, you don’t want to pay for your stays with points (reward stays do not count). You will have to pay for each of your stays.
I invite you to re-read Caroline’s article: How to save by paying cash at Marriott Bonvoy hotels: special rates and other tips.
Last year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Marriott Bonvoy gifted Elite nights to members who had Elite status the previous year. With the launch of this Marriott Bonvoy promotion, it leads us to believe that a similar offer will not be repeated this year.
This means that, under normal circumstances, you are between 10 and 60 Elite nights short of achieving one of these Marriott Bonvoy Elite statuses:
|Marriott Bonvoy Status||Without card||With card|
|Silver Elite||15 nights||–|
|Gold Elite||25 nights||10 nights|
|Platinum Elite||50 nights||35 nights|
|Titanium Elite||75 nights||60 nights|
With this Marriott Bonvoy promotion, it halves the nights you need to stay to earn or renew Elite status in 2022 (provided your stays are between February 8 and May 4, 2022) :
|Marriott Bonvoy Status||Without card||With card|
|Silver Elite||8 nights||–|
|Gold Elite||13 nights||5 nights|
|Platinum Elite||25 nights||18 nights|
|Titanium Elite||38 nights||30 nights|
If, like me, you are a Marriott Bonvoy credit cardholder in the United States (consumer + business), you already have 30 Elite nights in your account instead of 15 Elite nights for Canadians. This significantly reduces the number of Elite nights required this year.
For 2022, my advice is to aim to achieve or renew Platinum Elite status. This is the Elite Status level you want to get:
- Complimentary breakfast
- Superior recognition at Marriott Bonvoy hotels
With this Elite Status, you’ll save a lot of money during your vacations.
Since only the nights count (not the stays), there is no need to change hotels to maximize this promotion.
To ensure that you get or renew your Platinum Elite status, you could, for example, stay:
- 9 nights in the same hotel during the February vacations
- 9 nights during the April vacations
The benefit of staying in the same hotel for an extended stay is to use the Long Time Stay Rate (LTS), which is often very advantageous, or the Prepaid Rate. And to get or renew your Elite status at a cheaper rate.

The cost of your second night’s stay is deducted from your final bill (be sure to choose the rate that allows you to get the second night free).
The important point is that this second night counts toward your Elite nights under this Marriott Bonvoy promotion. Therefore, a 2-night stay in one of these hotels counts as four nights-Elite from February 8 to May 4, 2022.
And if you happen to have a promotional offer on one of your American Express cards, you save even more.
Indeed, with this offer from American Express ending March 31, 2022, one or more hotel expenses of $800 or more gives you a $100 credit. Check your account carefully to make sure you meet all the requirements.
1,000 points per night
The other component of the Marriott Bonvoy promotion is to offer 1,000 points per night. By our estimate, this is a $9 value.
After an 18-night stay to get or renew your Platinum Elite status, you will have earned 18,000 points, in addition to the points earned for booking your stay:
- 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.
