Registration is Open: Marriott Double Elite Nights and Double Points

We learned last month that Marriott would be launching a Double Elite Nights and Double Points promotion on paid stays of 2 nights or more. (Award stays do not qualify.)

That registration link is now live.

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

The Details

Basic Terms:

  • Register now, then earn on stays from February 16 through April 27, 2021. Registration ends April 13, 2021.
  • Earn double points and double Elite Night Credits on each stay of two or more nights — with no earning limits.
  • Choose from thousands of hotels and resorts participating in Marriott Bonvoy™ worldwide. Travel confidently with flexible cancellation and our Commitment to Clean.
  • Redeem your bonus points for free nights, gift cards, exclusive experiences and so much more.

Full terms:

Registration of your Marriott Bonvoy™ account is required. Marriott Bonvoy members who register for this promotion by April 13, 2021, will earn double points plus double Elite Night Credits on eligible paid stays of two nights or more during the promotion earning period. The promotion earning period is for stays between February 16, 2021, and April 27, 2021, at participating Marriott Bonvoy properties. The double points earning is only applicable to members’ base points earned per eligible stay. Only stays made after registration will qualify toward the promotion. A “stay” is defined as consecutive nights spent at the same hotel, regardless of check-in/checkout activity on any points-eligible rate (“Qualifying Rate”). Rates available through most third-party online retailers and select travel agency rates do not qualify for this promotion. Homes & Villas by Marriott International, ExecuStay®, Marriott Executive Apartments® and Marriott Vacation Club® owner-occupied weeks are not eligible for bonus points or double Elite Night Credits, and nights spent while redeeming an award are not eligible for bonus points or double Elite Night Credits. Only one room per hotel is counted toward a member’s Elite Night Credits or stay. Bonus Elite Night Credits will be awarded to the member’s account within 3–7 business days after the qualifying nights post. Elite Night Credits will count only toward the status year in which they are posted. A member who elects to earn miles is not eligible for this promotion.

MilesTalk Musings

Unlike some Marriott promos which are good for the month you register plus (usually) 3 months, requiring a bit of strategic planning, the dates on this promo are the same regardless of when you register, so register now.

Combined with the gifted Marriott Bonvoy Elite Night Credits from Marriott, someone was Titanium last years (38 Elite Night Credits awarded) and has both a personal and business Marriott Bonvoy credit card (30 nights), just a 4 night stay during this promotion would push you to Titanium through the end of 2022.

There’s no downside to registering, so do it before you forget.

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.
