If you are like me (insane), you have been checking your Marriott account daily, waiting for the bonus elite nights to post.

They have now posted, but you’ll only find them online. I assume they will be in the app shortly, but for now take a look at Marriott.com.

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

If you weren’t feverishly refreshing and need a reminder of what I’m talking about, see this post about Marriott Gifting Elite Night Credits in 2021.

Here’s are the highlights:

Like last year, Marriott will deposit Elite Night Credits into your account if you held status in 2020, based on the status you had.

ELITE STATUS TIER
EARNED IN 2020

These nights do count towards your lifetime status, as will a new earned year of status under the promotion.

Note that, unlike 2020, Marriott has reduced the spend requirement for top-tier Ambassador status from $20,000 to $14,000.

Note that all of these nights count toward your Marriott Bonvoy Elite Choice Benefits, so if you are gifted enough to have Platinum already, you’ll be able to choose a 50 night benefit.

yottaWhat is Yotta Savings?: The Yotta Savigs account is a really fun way to earn interest at a higher rate than Marcus while having some fun each night when the Yotta prize ball drops. Currently, the statistical odds imply a net savings rate of between around 1% and 3% - at a time when banks like Marcus are offering a paltry 0.5%. Plus, it's fun! | Read my review of Yotta.


I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
