marriott week of wonders

Marriott is launching a “Week of Wonders” starting today. I think it’s cool that there are a number of opportunities that money can’t buy – as those are so much more meaningful than just buying something for some small cents per point.

Here is the release directly from Marriott:

Marriott Bonvoy is bringing back Wonders of Extraordinary – exclusive, money-can’t-buy experiences that members can bid on with points on the Marriott Bonvoy’s Moments platform. Some of the special Moments available during the week include:

  • Embark on a NYC Culinary Adventure with Phil Rosenthal: Explore NYC with Phil Rosenthal, “Everybody Loves Raymond” creator, foodie and star of Netflix’s “Somebody Feed Phil,” who will guide you through some of the best stops in the city such as Peter Luger, Don Angie, and Caffè Panna to try some of Phil’s personal favorite dishes. Guests will also get to take home a signed copy of Phil’s new book, Somebody Feed Phil the Book: Untold Stories, Behind-the-Scenes Photos and Favorite Recipes: A Cookbook, to be released on October 18.
  • Marvel at the Great Pyramids of Giza: Indulge in a midnight dinner featuring Egyptian cuisine with an exclusive guided tour of the Great Pyramids of Giza. Experience a meditation session inside the pyramids, which are usually closed to visitors at night, and a photography session. 
  • Indulge in Omakase at W Osaka: Enjoy the ultimate Edomae sushi experience inside the Week of Wonders suite at the W Osaka.  Begin with cocktails in the hotel’s living room, followed by a full “Omakase” course of six dishes and 12 sushi options. 
  • Gear Up For the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix: Take in the excitement on and off the track with The Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS F1 Team. Members will also meet personnel behind the top-performing team while enjoying luxurious accommodations at The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal. 
  • Cayman Cookout: The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman presents the iconic Cayman Cookout, a culinary festival hosted by Chef Eric Ripert, featuring an impressive line-up of chefs, beverage experts and a wide variety of intimate and memorable experiences and events in the Cayman Islands.

New to all of this? My “introduction to miles and points” book, MilesTalk: Live Your Wildest Travel Dreams Using Miles and Points is available on Amazon and at major booksellers.

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 the South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
