Marriott is out with its first promotion of the year. Registration is required to earn:
- 1,000 bonus points per night
- Double elite qualifying nights on paid stays
Registration is required by April 15 to earn with this offer February 13 – April 29, 2024. Bonus points post within a week of check-out. All hotels participate globally, though Homes & Villas, Executive Apartments, and owner weeks at Marriott timeshares don’t count.
Waikiki Beach Marriott
I value Marriott points at 6/10ths to 65/100ths of a cent apiece. So this is an extra rebate of $6 to $6.50 per night. I sort of shrug my shoulders at 1,000 Marriott points, except to mirror my late grandfather who would say that it’s better than a lokh in kop (hole in the head).
Double elite nights is great, though. And it’s technically an extra 1 elite night per night which is even slightly better, now that there are some hotels that earn only half an elite night per night stayed.
Award nights don’t count, which isn’t great, but at least with this promo Marriott doesn’t game you by starting earning with your second stay during the promotion period.
St. Regis Abu Dhabi
Ultimately you should register even if you don’t expect any Marriott stays during the period, because you won’t remember to go back later and register. So register now, consider it done, and you might earn extra points. Plus even if you’re not currently going for Marriott status, elite nights count towards lifetime status and accruing more of those nights is better. You’ll kick yourself later if you do not register.
