Marriott Bonvoy has opened registration for a new promotion that runs from 13 February to 29 April 2024. Registered members will enjoy 1,000 bonus points and one bonus elite night credit per paid night, with no cap.
1,000 bonus points isn’t much to get excited about, but it’s the extra elite night credits that could be potentially lucrative.
Marriott Bonvoy bonus points and elite nights offer
Marriott Bonvoy members will need to register for this promotion by 15 April 2024 via the Promotions section of their account. I’m not sure whether this offer is targeted; if you don’t see it in your account you can try this link, or else I suppose it’s hard luck for you.
Registered members who stay from 13 February to 29 April 2024 will earn:
- 1,000 bonus points per night, and
- 1 bonus elite night credit per night
For example, a five-night stay would earn a total of 5,000 bonus points and 10 elite night credits in total.
This offer is only valid for paid stays. Award nights, and nights booked with cash + points will not be eligible. Bonus points and elite nights will be posted to your account within seven business days after checkout.
Is it worth participating?
If you were ever planning a Marriott Bonvoy status run, this would be the time to do it.
Thanks to the double elite nights, you could qualify for Platinum status with just 25 elite nights, instead of the usual 50. You have 76 nights in total to do this, and low-cost properties can be easily found in Malaysia and Indonesia.
Should you qualify for status in 2024, you’ll enjoy it all the way till 28 February 2026. That’s a long time to enjoy Platinum benefits such as complimentary breakfast, club lounge access, room upgrades, and 4 p.m guaranteed late check-out.
Does it stack with the KrisFlyer status accelerator?
Now, I know what everyone’s thinking already: can this offer stack with the status accelerator offer from the Marriott x KrisFlyer partnership?
|Instant Match To…
|Status Accelerator Challenge
|Solitaire PPS Club & PPS Club
(10 nights in 6 months)
|KrisFlyer Elite Gold
|KrisFlyer Elite Silver
(3 nights in 6 months)
For the uninitiated, KrisFlyer Elite Gold, PPS Club and Solitaire PPS Club members can register for an instant match to Marriott Gold, with a further upgrade to Marriott Platinum when they stay 10 nights in six months.
If the status accelerator does indeed stack with this offer, then you’d be looking at Platinum in just five nights, which feels a little too good to be true. And it is- Marriott has confirmed that you’ll need to stay 10 qualifying nights to get upgraded, not 10 elite nights.
Marriott Bonvoy members can now register to earn 1,000 bonus points and double elite night credits for paid stays till 29 April 2024. It’s unclear whether this offer will stack with the ongoing status accelerator challenge offered to KrisFlyer elite members, but hopefully we’ll get some clarification soon (my gut feeling is no, for what it’s worth).
For those thinking of mattress running their way to Platinum, I can’t think of a better incentive.
