Marriott Bonvoy targeted offers, which were introduced to the combined program from SPG, took a break for half a year, but have now made a return.
There is also a new global promotion introduced last week (read more here) that allows members to earn 2,500 bonus points for each stay consumed through October 18, 2020.
You can check your Marriott Bonvoy Promotion Central here.
There are traditionally several versions of the targeted offers, from bonus points to free night certificates. The latest offer, however, appears to be for double points for stays that include Friday or Saturday night.
These offers are always valid for the months you sign up + the following three. If you are eligible for this latest bonus and sign up in August, the earning period ends on November 30.
You can combine targeted offers with global and property-specific ones.
The offer will appear in your My Promotions (none for me):
Remember to sign up for global promotion:
It would be great if readers could leave a message below or drop me an email if their offer is different than the one listed above.
There is no rhyme who is eligible for these targeted bonuses. You tend to get one not more often than once each year.
