Marriott Bonvoy has an on-going bonus miles offer for Qantas Frequent Flyer-program member stays worldwide.
Qantas Frequent Flyer members can earn double points when booking is made using promotional code GW9.
When Marriott Bonvoy made announcements about the combined program back in 2018, seasonal award pricing was set to be introduced in early 2019. Marriott further clarified month ago that these would now be effective on September 14, 2019.
Marriott Bonvoy is changing how Points Advance (award reservations for which the member doesn’t have enough points in his/her account) are processed. You can lock in the award space but not the price using points. The number of Points Advance reservations that each member may have outstanding is reduced.
Marriott Bonvoy launched Escapes earlier this year that replaced Last Minute Escapes that were available for few months. Marriott previously had eBreaks while SPG had its own Hot Escapes.
Members save 20% while the non-member discount is capped at 15%. These Escapes are valid 7 days a week at resorts and Friday to Sunday at city hotels. You must book them by Sunday. Escapes are available for bookings every other week.
Marriott Bonvoy has launched a new offer for stays at Pie One in Sydney – Autograph Collection hotel between September 1 – November 24, 2019.
Members can earn 20,000 bonus points for stays minimum of two nights that are booked in to a suite using promotional code MR5.
It seems that not only are Marriott Bonvoy members confused with the 70+ page long terms and conditions governing the program, but so are the Marriott employees manning their Twitter account.
A reader tagged us in a Tweet earlier this week when the hotel and Marriott Bonvoy were trying to stonewall them from getting points for a reservation made through American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts (Amex FHR) program.
Marriott Bonvoy, then Marriott Rewards, and United Airlines MileagePlus launched a program called RewardsPlus back in 2014 that was modeled after what Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) and Delta Air Lines had in place for reciprocal elite benefits.
Marriott Bonvoy elite members can get a status with United MileagePlus and vice versa. There are also be some additional benefits when converting points to miles both ways.
This week the Fabulous Fridays features some great amenities and swag that you receive at some higher end hotels.
You can receive quite elaborate fruit plates, swag (shirts and bags) plus wine and/or champagne bottles like the ones above.
