Vacations by Marriott is offering a bonus of 10,000 Marriott Bonvoy points when you book and complete a minimum 3-night stay vacation, complete with hotel and airfare. This offer is available to all Marriott Bonvoy members, but will only last for a short while this summer.
What Is Vacations by Marriott?
The first thing to understand with this offer is that you must book with Vacations by Marriott, though many consumers are unfamiliar with this concept. Essentially, Marriott partners with major airlines worldwide to offer both airline tickets and a hotel stay at a cheap cost than purchasing both elements separately.
While it doesn’t always work out that both together are cheaper, for many consumers, purchasing everything in a one-stop-shop place is convenient, and there are usually some discounts to be had. Marriott uses consolidator (bulk) airfares and, by utilizing its own control of hotel inventory and pricing, is able to offer a bundled package for generally less than the market rate.
This offer requires Marriott Bonvoy members to book by June 14, 2022, and then travel before August 14, 2022.
You’ll need to purchase a minimum 3-night stay under the offer and combine your hotel stay with round-trip airfare. The hotel nights must be consecutive. During the booking process, you’ll be allowed to choose the type of airfare you like and will be presented with a number of different options, from ultra-basic to premium cabin fares. You can alter the type of airline ticket you’d like, filtering out to your desires.
Once you complete the 3-night stay with round-trip airfare, you’ll receive 10,000 bonus Marriot Bonvoy points, which will usually post to your account within 1 to 2 weeks after the stay is completed. It’s worth noting that you’ll also earn Marriott Bonvoy points on the room rate itself, and you’ll also accrue normal Elite Night Credits toward status as well.
You’ll be able to earn the bonus multiple times for each eligible trip you complete.

While completing this offer solely for the bonus points isn’t worth it, if you have the need for a 3-night hotel stay and airfare, it’s worth looking into the pricing Vacations by Marriott can offer to see if it makes sense to bundle your purchase to earn the additional points.
Vacations by Marriott can be a great way to save on hotel stays combined with airfare, and since you’ll also earn additional bonus points in the process, it could be worth taking advantage of this offer this summer.
