Once again, everyone should check your Marriott Bonvoy account now. Marriott has released a new round of special “Exclusively for You” promotional offers, and you might have one waiting in your account!
Philly’s “Exclusively For You” Offer
Philly has Gold status with Marriott. She has zero actual nights at Marriott so far this year and 15 elite qualifying nights by virtue of holding the Amex Marriott Bonvoy Business credit card. She has two stays booked within the next couple of months – one on a paid rate, and one using the 35k certificate from her Bonvoy Business card plus a cash upgrade to a suite. She did not receive an “Exclusively For You” offer during the last round of offers back in February.
In this round, however, Philly received an “Exclusively for You” offer – earn double points on weekend stays. In short, for any stay that includes a Friday or Saturday night, from now through 8/31/2019, Philly can earn double base Marriott points. That’s an extra 10 points per dollar on spend at most Marriott properties; 5 points per dollar at Element, Residence Inn and TownePlace Suites.
Registration was required for this promotion, and stays prior to enrollment do not count. Only 1 room at a time can qualify for the bonus points.
Here are the full terms and conditions for Philly’s offer:
The terms & conditions say that nights spend while redeeming an award are not eligible. However, for what it’s worth (not much for Philly’s “double points” promotion, but important for those who have promotions that earn a certain number of points per stay or night), we recently had an award stay at a Courtyard where we charged a little over $10 to our room, and that stay triggered an “Exclusively for You” bonus offer.
“Exclusively for You” offers should also stack with regular Marriott points earning, shopping portal earning, Amex Offers, and other promotions such as the current “Double Take” double-points promotion through 6/4/19.
My “Exclusively for You” Offer
Nothing this time.
I received a terrific “Exclusively for You” offer during the last round of offers in February – a total of 22,500 points for three paid stays. I’ve maxed out the points earning on this offer. Given that recent good offer and the fact that I’ve capitalized on it, I wasn’t surprised to be passed over this time.
What Other Offers Have People Received in This Round?
There’s a thread on the Marriott Insiders forum where several people have posted the offers they’ve received. You can access the post and its comments here:
- Marriott Insiders: Just Received Another Target Email to Register for more Bonus Points
Individualized offers referenced in this Marriott Insiders thread include:
- An offer for a maximum of 4,500 points – 1,500 after one stay; another 3,000 after the second stay
- An offer for a maximum of 9,000 points – 1,500 after one stay; another 3,000 after the second stay; and another 4,500 after the third stay
- Double elite night credits
Doctor of Credit also reported on a reader receiving an offer for up to 10 bonus elite night credits – 5 elite nights after one stay; another 5 elite nights after the second stay during the promotional period.
How Do I Check to See If I Have an Offer?
To check to see if you have a new “Exclusively for You” offer, log in to your Marriott Bonvoy account online. In the upper right corner, click on your name. This should bring up a menu on the right side of your screen, where you should see “Promotions” listed (for us, it’s the 5th menu item down the list). Clicking on “Promotions” will take you to the “Promotions Central” page. If you have an “Exclusively for You” offer, you should see it there.
You may have also received an email from Marriott with a link for a new “Member Exclusive” offer.[Note: Doctor of Credit also included a link you might try to see if you have an offer. We used this link for Philly’s account but it didn’t show her offer. We had to separately log into her account and go to the “Promotions” page to see her offer. So, don’t just rely on the link and don’t give up if you try the link and don’t see anything there.]
