Marriott Bonvoy and British Airways have launched new offer for those that credit their stays to the Executive Club.
Members can earn 50% bonus on number of Avios earned for stays through October 31, 2020 if booked by October 18 this year (2019).
You can access Marriott’s website here.
Note that you must have your Marriott Bonvoy earning preference set to partner points/miles and have British Airways chosen as the preferred one. You must also enable the conversion of points to miles after each of your stays.
I would rather collect Marriott Bonvoy points than autocrediting stays to any airline program. Promotion such as this can only make sense if you only have few stays that wouldn’t earn enough hotel program points for a free night.
Here are the terms and conditions of this promotion:
Only applies to direct earn bookings (not conversion from Marriott Bonvoy points to Avios). You must be a Member of the British Airways Executive Club. To be eligible for the bonus, you must have ‘Miles/other programmes’ and ‘British Airways Executive Club’ as your airline of choice for your Marriott Bonvoy account during the time of booking and your stay. All bookings must be made by 18 October 2019 with all stays completed by 31 October 2020 to be eligible for this promotion. Stays booked through a tour operator, online travel channel or other third-party channels are not eligible.
The 50% bonus Avios will be awarded within 8 weeks of when you make your booking and show on your statement as separate from the standard Avios awarded that are credited as normal within 6 weeks of your stay completion.
