Register now: Marriott Bonvoy double points and elite nights promotion

Last Updated:

Register now and stay at least two nights from 16 Feb-27 Apr 2021 to earn double points and double elite nights, with no cap.

In mid-January, Marriott announced several initiatives for Bonvoy members in 2021. All elite members would receive an elite night credit equal to 50% of the nights required for their 2020 tier, off-peak award redemptions would be discounted by 10%, and a double points + elite night promotion would be offered from February to April 2021.

Registered Marriott Bonvoy members will earn double points and double elite nights for stays of at least two nights between 16 February to 27 April 2021. This is valid from the very first stay, and there is no cap on the bonus points or elite night credits you can earn.  

As a reminder, only base points are doubled (not the elite bonuses). Here’s how many points you can expect to earn, depending on tier:

Points per US$1
Tier Regular Elite Bonus Promo Total
Base 10 0 10 20
Silver 10 1 10 21
Gold 10 2.5 10 22.5
Platinum 10 5 10 25
Titanium & Ambassador 10 7.5 10 27.5
At Element, Residence Inn and TownePlace Suites, members earn a base rate of 5 points per US$1

Registration closes 13 April 2021. 

Earn six elite nights for the cost of two

This promotion creates some intriguing opportunities to triple your elite night earning, thanks to the ongoing Pay 2 Stay 3 offers you can find through travel advisor channels like HoteLux

Note: Effective 5 February, Westin will be changing how they calculate the third night. The third night will now price at $0, which will mean you’ll only earn 2 elite nights (4 after the bonus).

I’ll do a more detailed post on this, but here’s a simple example. The Westin Singapore is currently offering a Luminous rate which knocks the third night’s cost off the bill. For example, if you search for two nights, you’ll pay S$260++ per night. Search for three, and that becomes S$175++ per night (260 * 2/3)

Best of all, you’ll earn elite credit for three nights, not two- and if you’re registered for this promotion, that gets doubled to six nights. 

You’ll also enjoy the usual benefits for Luminous rates, such as free breakfast, room upgrades, US$100 dining credit and early check-in/late check-out. Since the Westin’s club lounge is currently closed, those who book club rooms or have Platinum Elite and higher status will enjoy an additional S$100 dining credit.

Here’s a recap of the initiatives that Marriott Bonvoy is offering. 

50% elite night credit for 2021

All Marriott Bonvoy elite members will receive a bonus credit equal to 50% of the elite nights required for their 2020 tier, i.e: 

  • Silver members get five bonus elite nights
  • Gold members get 13 bonus elite nights
  • Platinum members get 25 bonus elite nights
  • Titanium members get 38 bonus elite nights
  • Ambassador members get 50 bonus elite nights

Bonus night credits have started to post, and you should see yours by the end of the week. 

Marriott Ambassador spending requirement cut by 30%

Normally, Marriott Ambassador status requires 100 elite nights and US$20,000 in qualifying spending per calendar year. For 2021, the night requirement is the same, but the spending requirement is being cut by 30% to US$14,000.

10% discount for off-peak redemptions

Marriott Bonvoy will be reducing off-peak redemption rates by 10% for all properties around the world. This applies for reservations made by 21 February 2021, with stays up till 30 September 2021. 

Here’s how much awards will cost after the 10% discount.

Category Off-Peak  Standard Peak 
1 5,000 
4,500
7,500 10,000
2 10,000
9,000
12,500 15,000
3 15,000 
13,500
17,500 20,000
4 20,000 
18,000
25,000 30,000 
5 30,000 
27,000
35,000 40,000
6 40,000 
36,000
50,000 60,000
7 50,000
45,000
60,000 70,000
8 70,000
63,000
85,000 100,000

In case you were wondering, this stacks with Marriott Bonvoy’s usual 5th night free offer. There’s no need to enter any special promo code; the reduced rate will reflect automatically when searching.

Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel is a Category 5 property, and off-peak nights usually cost 30,000 points/night

Obviously, the higher the category, the more points you save. While it’s mighty tempting to book the St Regis Maldives or Al Maha Resort, you’re basically taking a gamble on travel opening up (although it is a refundable gamble, so why not). 

Conclusion

It seems unlikely that international travel will materialize by April, but for those of you doing staycations of at least two nights, there’s a chance to earn double points and double elite night credits. 

Registration only takes a second, so you might as well do it just in case.

Interesting! Currently matched to Platinum on a 90 days challenge with 15 nights required. Does the current double elite night promo stacks? Which means 8 stays will get u platinum status. If yes, definitely a steal!!

James

Someone on the Telegram chat checked with Marriott and the answer is no.

AARON GOH

Right i just got the email reply from them.

Please keep in mind as it relates to this Promotion and eligibility for the 90 day requirement for a Status Match. Base Elite Night Credits would count, but the Bonus Elite credits will not count toward the Elite Status Challenge.

Jem

Wesbite registration via the link and also directly on the app doesn’t seem to work for me right now.
Will try again later i guess.

Jerome

Hi Aaron, how does one get access to Marriot Luminous? Through an agent?

Kit

Is Hotelux available to use in KL?

Stefan

Do the 2 elite nights per night spent both also count towards lifetime nights? Thanks Aaron!
