Marriott Bonvoy has launched “Eat Around Town” program that allows members to earn points for food and beverage purchases at more than 11,000 restaurants in the United States.
Members usually earn 4 points per USD and elite members 6 six (Silver, Gold, Platinum, Titanium & Ambassador) at participating properties. All members receive 8 points per USD charged until November 11 and 1,000 bonus points for a purchase of $30 or more within 30 days of signing up.
Members must register their debit or credit card(s) on the website and then use these when paying at participating locations to earn the points and bonus.
This program is handled by Rewards Network that works with number of partners:
Note that your credit or debit card can only be registered with one of the programs at any given time.
When I was living in the States, I was registered with United and received some surprise miles at times for F&B purchases I made. I never chose outlets merely for earning some miles or points.
Rewards Networks extends loans for these participating outlets or offers them solutions for driving more foot traffic by incentivizing diners (or drinkers).
