Marriott Bonvoy (back then Marriott Rewards) launched Badges-program back in 2014 (read more here) awarding ridiculously low number of points for reaching certain thresholds.
You could earn badges based on your status based on various Marriott brands visited, number of nights stayed at and some social activities. Not sure when I signed up for the program, but I was credited a very “generous” bonus last week.
You can access Marriott Bonvoy here.
The bonus points above had appeared in my account after consuming 100 Marriott nights from the date I signed up for this offer. Not sure if the sign up is still active somewhere.
Marriott Bonvoy should add couple or more zeroes to these badge bonuses to make them somewhat more rewarding.
I am eagerly awaiting the 250 bonus points after completing 1,000 nights with Marriott since signing up for this promotion…..
