Marriott Bonvoy Free Night & Suite Nights Awards Extensions Processed


Marriott Bonvoy last week announced their Covid-19 elite benefits and status extension policies that we covered here, here and here.

Elite members have had their status extended through February 2022, and various certificate extensions were pushed to January 31 and December 31, 2021 (now reflected on the account).

You can access Marriott’s coronavirus policies here.

Here’s what happened to my existing certs:

Here’s when they were to expire:

Status extension was already done at the time of the announcement:

It incorrectly, however, states that my Titanium would be valid through only February 2022 when it is, in fact, for a lifetime (mine or Marriott’s).

Here’s reminder of the extensions:

Status Extension: We want you to be able to enjoy the status that you earned in 2019. With that in mind, the status you earned in 2019 will be extended to February 2022.

Points Expiration: To provide you ample time to redeem points, the expiration of points will be paused until February 2021. At that time, your points will only expire if your account has been inactive for at least 24 months.

Suite Night Awards (SNAs): We have extended the expiration of suite night awards by one year from December 31, 2020 to December 31, 2021.

Free Night Award (FNA): Members who currently have an active Free Night Award (FNA) expiring in 2020 as part of their credit card benefit, annual choice benefit, promotions or travel package will be able to use it through January 31, 2021. (Exception: Members in mainland China, Hong Kong SAR, Macau SAR and Taiwan the Free Night Awards will be extended 12 months into 2021 from the date of expiration).

I am glad that Marriott Bonvoy was able to adjust the expiry date of these Free Night & Suite Night Awards promptly way before they were even set to expire. More time to use them when travel opens up again.
