Marriott Bonvoy launched Eat Around Town with Rewards Network in 2019 (read more here) and has had several yearly bonus opportunities.
The program tries to get new members to sign up by December 31, 2022, by offering up to 6,000 bonus Marriott Bonvoy points for three dines (each minimum of $30 including taxes/fees/tips) within 60 days of signing up.
You can access this offer on Marriott’s website here.
Remember that you need to link at least one credit or debit card with Eat Around Town that you need to swipe at participating restaurants to earn the bonus.
You cannot have the same card on file with more than one program that Rewards Network administers.
Here’s how the dining bonus work:
- Dine 1: 1,000 bonus points (minimum spend of $30)
- Dine 2: 2,000 bonus points (minimum spend of $30)
- Dine 3: 3,000 bonus points (minimum spend of $30)
Total cumulative bonus of 6,000 points + what you earn from the dines
- Base members: Four Marriott Bonvoy points per USD
- Elite members: Six Marriott Bonvoy points per USD
Note that you must complete a survey within 30 days after each dining transaction to earn the bonus points and opt-in to receive emails from the Rewards Network (daily spam?).
Rewards Network (iDine) works with several companies:
I used to be part of iDine years ago and earned some random bonuses from restaurants and bars I had no idea were part of the network.
Rewards Network captures the transaction from the credit card data and links it with your Marriott Bonvoy account. Remember to leave those reviews, or you won’t earn the bonus points.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
