Marriott has released its winter/spring offer with some neat deals, also known as: “Better Two-gether”.
Current Members Double-Double Promotion
Marriott is offering a double-double promotion. Registration is required (must be done before April 13, 2021) to be eligible to earn 2x the elite night credits and 2x the points for paid stays of 2 consecutive nights or longer. The promotion is valid for stays between February 16, 2021 and April 27, 2021 at participating properties in Marriott Bonvoy.
There are some side notes regarding this promotion:
- Earn unlimited bonus points.
- The 2x points applies to the base points earned on each stay.
- Bookings need to be done directly with Marriott on Marriott.com, Marriott Bonvoy Mobile app or through a reservations center. (Therefore, rates available through most third-party online retailers and select travel agency rates do not qualify for this promotion).
- The following brands are not participating in the promotion:
- Homes & Villas by Marriott International
- ExecuStay, Marriott Executive Apartments
- Marriott Vacation Club
New Members Promotion
If you are not already a Marriott Bonvoy members, new members can also fast track to elite status with the following requirements:
- Achieve Silver elite status with 5 eligible nights (instead of the normal 10 nights)
- Achieve Gold elite status with 13 eligible nights (instead of the normal 25 nights)
Good Timing for Quarantining
Keep in mind that Canada has greatly increased travel restrictions in the past week whereby people returning to Canada will need to quarantine in a hotel on their own dime. If you are not a Marriott Bonvoy member already, and you expect to stay 14 straight nights, this is probably one of the best times to sign up for an account, as those 14 nights will fast track you to Gold status, along with all those bonus points that you can earn. This is addition to the fact that you will be earning 2x the elite night credits, so you’ll actually have 28 nights after the 14-day stay.
This promotion came out just in time for those people to take advantage. A reminder that stays made prior to registration are not eligible for this offer. So if you have an upcoming stay, best to register now.
