Marriott inherited the Your World Rewards partnership with Emirates from SPG when the hotel companies merged (Marriott, in reality, bought Starwood).
Marriott Bonvoy has launched several targeted bonus points offers in the past two weeks (see below), and there is now even one for those who have linked their accounts with Emirates.
Here’s the bonus offer that a reader forwarded:
15,000 Marriott Bonvoy points for three stays between December 22 – March 22, 2021.
Other targeted offers we have covered:
It makes sense to sign up for the Your World Rewards even if you don’t plan ever using the benefits (Emirates elites with Marriott and vice versa).
The main deterrent for me is that it would require me to credit Emirates flights to Skywards rather than another airline partner program (let’s say Alaska).
I am glad that many have been eligible for one of the bonus opportunities that Marriott Bonvoy has launched this December. I’ll hope to be targeted next round.
Here are the terms of this Your World Rewards bonus opportunity:
Offer is valid only for the Marriott Bonvoy member who registers for the promotion between 22 December 2020 and 22 March 2021 by 11:59pm EDT. Member can earn 6,000 bonus points after the first (1st) eligible paid stay, 3,000 bonus points after the second (2nd) eligible paid stay, and 6,000 bonus points after the third (3rd) eligible paid stay. As part of this promotion, member may earn a maximum of 15,000 total bonus points for three eligible stays from 22 December 2020 until 22 March 2021 (the “promotion period”). This promotion is not transferable. Bookings made prior to the promotion period are eligible, but only eligible stays consumed during the promotion period will earn a bonus.
A “stay” is defined as consecutive nights spent in the same hotel, regardless of check-in/checkout activity at any of the Marriott Bonvoy participating hotels paying an eligible paid rate during the promotion period. An eligible rate is any rate that is eligible to earn points in the Marriott Bonvoy programme (“Marriott Bonvoy”). Free Night Awards and Cash & Points Award nights are not eligible towards promotional points earnings. A listing of participating hotels and resorts in Marriott Bonvoy and a description of qualifying stays and eligible rates can be found at marriott.com under the Marriott Bonvoy Programme Rules. Certain prepaid rooms where the booking is made through a third party (including, but not limited to, travelocity.com, expedia.com and booking.com) are not qualifying rates and do not earn points or qualify towards promotional earnings as set forth in the Marriott Bonvoy Programme Rules. Homes & Villas by Marriott International, ExecuStay®, Marriott Executive Apartments® and Marriott Vacation Club® owner-occupied weeks are not eligible for bonus points, and nights spent while redeeming an award are not eligible for bonus points.
Bonus points will be credited to the member’s account within 2–4 weeks of the qualifying stay.
This promotion may be combined with other points promotions in market during the same time; however, earnings are exclusive of each other. Members electing to earn miles are not eligible for this promotion.
