Marriott Bonvoy has renewed their promotion offering new members the chance to receive a free night. Under the promotion, a new member has to complete two eligible stays to receive the free night award.
This is obviously quite a generous promotion. While the free night has some limitations and won’t unlock a night at all properties, there is still a decent range of hotels to choose from. As a result, the promotion could get you a night at a decent hotel, after staying just two night elsewhere.
Marriott Bonvoy New Member Promotion
It’s a fairly straightforward promotion to take advantage of. Just follow the following steps:
Joining and taking advantage of this promotion is straightforward. Simply:
- Sign up a a new Marriott Bonvoy member at the dedicated promotion page here
- Complete two eligible paid stays by November 28, 2019
- Once you have done that, an electronic award certificate will be deposited into your account
What can you do with the award?
The award certificate is the equivalent of 25,000 Marriott Bonvoy points. Under the Marriott Bonvoy system, this is enough to get up to a Category 4 award night.
In order to maximise the value of your award night, it would be best to use it on a Category 4 hotels. Fortunately, Marriott provide some help in finding such hotels through their category charts from earlier in the year.
As the charts show, not a lot in Australia at the Category 4 level. In fact it’s just two. The Brisbane Marriott, and a Four Points in Sydney. A whole lot of hotels are tantalisingly unavailable at Category 5.
Still, some checks of prices at the Brisbane Marriott suggests that it is pricing out at around $300. So, not a bad use for the free night.
To our north, there are far more options. You can find hotels around Bali, in Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand and so on.
All in all, a decent sign up offer. Unfortunately, if you have already been a member, then you are not eligible. But for those that have not been members, it is worth considering.
