Marriott Bonvoy has now loaded their August targeted offers to select member accounts (reader alerted us about an offer that had appeared on their account).
Starwood extended targeted offers to SPG members that Marriott adapted onto their Bonvoy program to get members reactivated that hadn’t stayed for a while.
You can check your Marriott Bonvoy Promotion Central here.
Here’s the offer that a reader received:
Earn up to two Free Night Awards after two eligible paid stays.
Stay at any of our more than 7,000 participating hotels and resorts worldwide now through 11/30/2021.
Get 1 Free Night Award after your first stay* and another Free Night Award after your second stay.
These promotional free night awards are capped at 35,000 points each.
There are surely available other targeted offers from bonus points to possibly additional night credits.
Marriott Bonvoy tends to offer targeted member offers to each account at max once per calendar year. The best offers go to members who haven’t stayed at their properties for a while (reactivation offer).
Perhaps worth checking your account to see if a new offer has popped up, considering that there hasn’t been a global bonus opportunity now for several months.
Here are the terms and conditions of this specific offer:
