Marriott teamed up with Rewards Network to offer Bonvoy members points for dining around the United States when they register their credit/debit cards with the program.
Marriott has now launched a bonus offer for dines in October that allows all members to earn 8 points per USD + up to 6,000 bonus points for new members.

New Eat Around Town members earn up to 6,000 bonus points for thee dines during the first 60 days of joining. The check with the tip and the tax must be a minimum of $30.
- Dine 1: 1,000 bonus points (minimum check $30)
- Dine 2: 2,000 bonus points (minimum check $30)
- Dine 3: 3,000 bonus points (minimum check $30)
There is also a requirement to leave a review after your dine to earn these bonus points. There is none for regular restaurant earnings.
Eat Around Town members earn 8 Marriott Bonvoy points per USD instead of 4 or 6 (the latter is for all Bonvoy elite members).
I used to participate in these offers when I was living in the States. I just registered my cards with one of the dining programs (there are quite a few) and got random miles every once in a while for the F&B purchases I made at restaurants or bars.
When combined with higher earnings for October, the new member bonus may sway some members to sign up and eat at participating restaurants.
