Marriott has sent out a communication about its latest global Bonvoy promotion to associates in the Greater China/Asia-Pacific, according to a post made on a Chinese website FlyerTea.
Marriott Bonvoy members, according to the information posted – not independently verified, earn 2,500 bonus points for each stay consumed between August 13 – October 18, 2020. Members also receive a one-time bonus of 5,000 points after their third stay.
You can access Marriott’s Promotion Central here (where this should eventually appear).
Note that you only earn the bonus AFTER registering for this offer.
Here’s the text:
2020 Q3 Global Promotion
Marriott BonvoyTM members (including new enrollees) can now register, then earn 2,500 bonus points on each stay, plus a one-time bonus of 5,000 additional points after their third stay.
Registration and Earning Period: August 13, 2020 – October 18, 2020
Only stays made after registration will count toward promotion credit. Associates are eligible to earn points with global promotions. No additional action is required in order to participate in the promotion. The Q3 global promotion is funded by the loyalty program.
Marriott promotions have traditionally applied to all stays consumed during the offer period regardless when they were booked.
Sounds about like a usual offer from Marriott Bonvoy that has been spiced up perhaps by 1,000 points due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Offers such as this work best for members that stay at inexpensive hotels and have short stays (+ hotel hop). They don’t offer much for those of us that prefer longer stays and pricier hotels. It is good, however, always to earn some extra.
I would assume that the registration for this opens up in few hours as it is soon August 13 here in Asia-Pacific.
