W Maldives, Bookable with Marriott Bonvoy Points

Marriott is out with an offer on all of their credit cards to reward $7,000 in spend between now and September 30, 2023.

You’ll have to register first so don’t skip that step!

With all the cards offering an earn rate of 2 points per dollar on everyday spend, this bumps you up to a hair over 3 points per dollar if you spend exactly $7,000 (or close).

Mentally, for many of us, that’s a buy signal because it brings us back to the same earn level these cards enjoyed during the Starwood Preferred Guest era. However, remember that Marriott Bonvoy now employs fully dynamic award pricing so the redemption value is not what it was back in the SPG days.

That said, with Bonvoy points fairly hard to earn these days, one could easily justify $7,000 in spend to get 24,000 Bonvoy points – even if on paper that is only a return of about 2 cents per dollar spent.

Here are the full terms:

“Eligible Card Members must enroll their Card by August 10, 2023, and then they can earn 10,000 Marriott Bonvoy® bonus points after spending $7,000 in eligible purchases on that Card by September 30, 2023. Card Members with multiple eligible Marriott Bonvoy Cards may register each individual Card for the opportunity to earn a bonus on each. Terms apply.

Terms and Conditions

American Express

ENROLLMENT/ELIGIBLE CARDS: Must first add offer to an eligible Card by 8/10/2023 and then use same Card to redeem the offer by 9/30/2023. Only qualifying purchases made with a Marriott Bonvoy® American Express® Card are eligible. Limit 1 enrolled Card per Card Member across all American Express offer channels. Your enrollment of an eligible American Express Card for this offer extends only to the Basic Card Member. Offer is non-transferable. QUALIFYING PURCHASES: A “qualifying purchase” means a purchase made with your enrolled Card on or before 9/30/2023, upon adding the offer to your Card in accordance with these terms. You will receive 10,000 bonus Marriott Bonvoy points one-time after you spend a minimum of $7,000+ in one or more qualifying purchases by 9/30/2023. Qualifying purchases must be made during the offer period with your enrolled Marriott Bonvoy® American Express® Card which are in an amount totaling at least $7,000 USD as posted to your account in accordance with your Cardmember Agreement. Valid only on purchases made in US dollars. Cash advances, other fees and charges such as interest, annual fees and foreign currency conversion fees are not qualifying purchases and do not qualify for this offer. You may not receive bonus Marriott Bonvoy points if we receive inaccurate information or are otherwise unable to identify your purchase as qualifying for the offer. For example, you may not receive the Marriott Bonvoy points if (a) the merchant uses a third-party to sell their products or services; or (b) the merchant uses a third-party to process or submit your transaction to us (e.g., using mobile or wireless card readers); or (c) you choose to make a purchase using a third- party payment account or make a purchase using a mobile or digital wallet. Purchases may fall outside of the offer period in some cases due to a delay in merchants submitting transactions to us or if the purchase date differs from the date you made the transaction (for example, the purchase date for online orders may be the shipping date). Bonus Marriott Bonvoy points will be credited to your Marriott Bonvoy member account within 90 days after 9/30/2023, provided that American Express receives information from the merchant about your qualifying purchase. Note that American Express may not receive information about your qualifying purchase until all items/services from your qualifying purchase have been shipped/provided by merchant. We may not credit bonus Marriott Bonvoy points to, or we may take away bonus Marriott Bonvoy points that have been credited to, your Marriott Bonvoy member account if the qualifying purchase is returned/canceled. If American Express does not receive information that identifies your purchase as qualifying for the offer, you will not receive the bonus Marriott Bonvoy points. EARNING POINTS: Limit 1 enrolled Card per American Express Card online account. Limit of 10,000 bonus Marriott Bonvoy points per Card Member. The enrolled Card account must be active, not be past due, canceled or have a returned payment outstanding to receive the bonus Marriott Bonvoy points. These bonus Marriott Bonvoy points are in addition to any Marriott Bonvoy points you would normally receive for purchases on your Card under the terms of the Marriott Bonvoy member account, but the number of bonus Marriott Bonvoy points you receive will be based on the purchase price after any credit or other discount is applied.

This promotion is available to all US Marriott Bonvoy® cardmembers with a Marriott Bonvoy Credit Card from Chase which was issued prior to June 21, 2023 (“eligible cardmembers”). Eligible cardmembers must register for this promotion between July 27 and August 10, 2023, 11:59 PM EST. Registration is subject to meeting credit criteria for this offer. To earn 10,000 Marriott Bonvoy bonus points eligible cardmembers must have at least $7,000 USD in total purchases posted to their Marriott Bonvoy Credit Card account from July 27 through September 30, 2023. Purchases must post to your account by the last day of the promotional period to qualify. Sometimes your card will be charged on a date after you make a purchase, and as a result the purchase may not post to your account until after the last day of the promotional period and will therefore not count towards the $7,000 spend threshold Bonus points will appear on your Marriott Bonvoy member account 8-12 weeks after reaching the $7,000 spend threshold. Purchases are when you, or an authorized user, use a card to make purchases of products and services, minus returns or refunds. Buying products and services with your card, in most cases, will count as a purchase; however, the following types of purchases and transactions won’t count towards the $7,000 spend threshold for this promotion and won’t earn points: balance transfers, cash advances, travelers checks, foreign currency, money orders, wire transfers or similar cash-like transactions, lottery tickets, casino gaming chips, race track wagers or similar betting transactions, any checks that access your account, interest, unauthorized or fraudulent charges, and fees of any kind, including an annual fee, if applicable. Authorized users are not eligible to receive the bonus. Bonus points will be awarded once per registered card. To be eligible for this promotion, the Credit Card account must be open and not in default at the time of fulfillment. Marriott Bonvoy members who elect to earn miles are not eligible for this bonus promotion. All Marriott Bonvoy terms and conditions apply, available at marriottbonvoy.com/itsinthecards.
