Marriott Bonvoy Bonus Point Promotion Details
From July 14, 2021, through September 15, 2021, existing cardholders of the Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant™ American Express® Card and Marriott Bonvoy American Express® Card (no longer available for new applications) can earn 4 additional Marriott Bonvoy points, for a total of 6 points per $1, on purchases in the following categories:
- Car rentals purchased directly from select car rental companies
- Flights booked directly with airlines
- Gas at U.S. gas stations
- Transit, including purchases on taxis/rideshare, parking, tolls, trains, and buses
Cardholders can earn up to 10,000 points in each category, for a total of up to 40,000 points through September 30, 2021. To enroll in the promotion, simply head to the promotion sign-up page, then enter your card account number and 4-digit CID number. Then simply used your enrolled card for these bonus purchases.
Earn a Free Night at a Category 5 Marriott Hotel
Those who are able to max out the promotion and earn all 40,000 points would have enough for a free night at any Category 5 Marriott hotel of their choosing — even on peak nights!
The Domes Miramare would be a great option for those 40,000 Marriott Bonvoy points. The Luxury Collection resort boasts beautiful white-sand beaches, 3 restaurants, 2 bars, a spa, an outdoor pool, and a gym. You’re sure to have a relaxing experience here because, not only is the property adults-only, but it is also the only 5-star beachfront resort in all of Corfu, Greece.
Who doesn’t like earning extra points? This Marriott Bonvoy bonus is a great opportunity for cardholders of either personal Marriott Amex card to rack up 6x points per $1, instead of the usual 2x per $1, on purchases they likely were planning to make anyway. It is great to take full advantage of promotions like this when you can, as doing so gets you that much closer to your next free vacation!
