Dining rewards programs are a great way of double-dipping when you dine out. And Marriott's Eat Around Town program is making dining out especially rewarding for another few months, thanks to a promotion for both new and existing members.

Existing members can score up to 1,200 bonus points on three dines before June 30, 2022, plus an additional 1,000 bonus points after every 10 dines until the end of the year. New members can also earn up to 6,000 bonus points when starting a new Eat Around Town account. That's in addition to the points and miles you'll earn from your credit card.

This is a great way to earn points while getting out of the house…or ordering in if you prefer.

Existing Eat Around Town Member Promotions

There are currently two promotions running for existing members. For these promotions, qualifying dines require that you spend $30 or more (including tax and tip) each time. Valid for U.S. members only.

Now, there's no limit to how many times you can claim your 1,000 bonus points, and the promotion has been extended to the end of 2022.

What is a Dining Program?

Many of the top airline and hotel programs offer additional points when you dine at an eligible restaurant and pay with a credit card you link to the dining program. This strategy is often called “double-dipping” because you get extra points from the dining program on top of the points you already earn (from the bank when using your credit card). This gets even better when you pay with a card that earns more than one point per dollar at restaurants. You can learn more about which card to use for dining in our dedicated post of the best rewards cards for dining & restaurants.

Unfortunately, you can't triple-dip by adding your credit card to multiple dining rewards programs. Most of the airline and hotel dining rewards programs use the same back-end system. So, your card will be automatically unenrolled from one program if that card is added to another dining rewards program.

Cards Offering Marriott Bonvoy Elite Status

It pays to be a Marriott Bonvoy co-branded credit cardholder. Just by having one of the Marriott credit cards, you'll get (at least) Marriott Silver Elite status. That qualifies you for a 6X earning rate on Eat Around Town purchases.

Marriott Bonvoy credit cards from Chase and American Express aren't the only way to earn Marriott elite status. Premium cards such as the The Platinum Card® from American Express and The Business Platinum Card® from American Express grant cardmembers Bonvoy Gold Elite status.

Our Take

With only 11,000 restaurants participating nationwide, your favorite diner might not be on the list. However, these are still some great ways to earn some more Marriott Bonvoy points in 2022. If you're signing up for the Eat Around Town new members bonus, I'd recommend checking out the map for where you live to see if any of the restaurants you like or have always wanted to go to are participating.

Don't forget to check out our guide on the Marriott Bonvoy Program to know which cards to use, how to maximize your points, and what other rewards are available.

  • Tip – remember that you cannot earn points for a second visit to a restaurant within the same day.

  • Good timing for those in cities where Restaurant Week is underway, but for some of us – during the pandemic – it’s only useful at restaurants with first-party takeout/delivery services.

  • I like the idea of this and could possibly do it. However, I am usually not going to restaurants that are on the list. I have seen an increase of good restaurants in my area. I may need to take a 2nd look.

  • Alberto Corral says:

    Great idea especially for Marriott elite members

  • Alessandra Oshiro says:

    The dinner reward program is great, even more so now that Marriott has extended the Eat Around Town promotion into November. Earning 8 Marriott Bonjoy Points for every dollar spent on a credit card at participating restaurants by 11/30/21 becomes a sacrificial treat. I consider this program a strong point in becoming an Eat Around Town member. For food lovers that I recommend, check the list of participating restaurants and ensure your experience is a good one.

  • Seems there are much fewer restaurants participating in the program now.

  • Just in time for the run up to Christmas too, time to earn some extra points.

  • Nice that they extended the program and 8x points is always good!

  • It would be nice if the Cheesecake Factory is covered as well.

  • No reason to go out of your way to earn Marriott points now that they’re going dynamic IMO.

  • Seems that the Hilton program is running a promotion as well. Have been trying to split my purchases at participating restaurants between the two. It seems the big difference is the once a month credit using the Hhonors card.

  • There has got to be a way to expand this feature to Canadian restaurants too!!!

  • Marriott Eat Around Town is probably my favorite of all the dining programs (They are actually all the same program for the most part) because Marriott tends to have specials that target people who are already members whereas the others seem to have bonuses for those signing up. I live in an area that doesn’t have any participating restaurants but I always use the program as a tool to find places when I travel. I have been to some really great places I would have never found any other way. To find the restaurants, the MileagePlus X app has a tool that shows if any are close by. They obviously intend for the program to be used with MileagePlus dining but since they are the same restaurants, it works for whichever program your card is enrolled.

    • When I saw u share u had a favorite dining program, I was confused because, as u go on to say, they’re basically the same program. But, sure enough, you’ve found a distinguishing feature of the Marriott program, and I’m with u, targeting existing members for offers would indeed be unique and a meaningful, beneficial difference. Thanks for the heads up!

  • I get emails from AA, UA, and Delta about new additions to their restaurant lists for this kind of thing. They are all the same. I know I am not enrolled with Marriott but I find that I do not really go to any restaurants that are on the list. It’s tempting to go when I’d earn points but I am on the fence.

  • Great way to extend your Bonvoy points expiration date and pick up some extra points along the way with something you’re going to do anyway….love using the dining programs for pushing out those expiration dates!

  • Great bonus especially for Marriott elite members

  • The should allow dining points to extend the expiration date of the account balance.

  • Going to be the size of a house with all the dining offers throwing around points right now!

  • CAROLINE LARREGIEU says:

    This is an awesome way to extend Marriot Bonvoy points without buying them. Thanks for the helpful info!

  • Nathalie H says:

    This sounds like a great deal – will it be available in Canada?

  • I love the dining rewards program and earning Marriott points is particularly useful because they are flexible points. Unfortunately there aren’t a lot of restaurants that participate where I live. However, it has been a great way to find restaurants in the towns where I travel for work, as well as getting the extra points. When there is a bonus, that makes it even better.

  • Thanks for sharing this deal. A shame not to be able to use it in Europe.

  • Not that it has been relevant during COVID, but these are always easy ways to extend your points expiration. Also at the end of the day, points are points.

  • angelo fonseca says:

    A very easy way to get marriott points with a little effort. No minimum purchase required.

  • Not a bad program, need to weigh the value vs. the Hilton Dining program and just getting cashback for dining with Rakuten.

  • How much does Marriott profit from running the loyalty program itself?

  • A US only offer again, I wish these types of promotions and programmes could make their way to Europe

  • This might be worth registering for for me. I currently have another hotel dining programme active, probably IHG, but I rarely earn anything.
    .
    IHG also have their OpenTable reservation thing which I’ve got more use out of – just in May I was able to reserve a restaurant at a Marriott hotel I was staying at, charge the meal to my room, and earn IHG points for the reservation, and Marriott points for the meal. I was pretty pleased with that combination!

  • It is too bad that these points cannot extend the expiration date of the account balance.

    • Really? I’m not seeing anything that says that they wouldn’t. It should count as normal activity.

  • Nice option to earn points and share a dinner with family or friends

  • My 10x points offer on my Bonvoy Amex card doesn’t end until the end of this month, so this offer stacks with that. (As long as you eat at a restaurant that participates in the Rewards Dining Network) Unfortunately, in some areas there are no restaurants at all. I was going to have a great time stacking these offers at my closest and favorite restaurant that participated but then I discovered that it has permanently closed due to the pandemic. Very disappointing.

  • This is a nice little bonus. I give Marriott credit for encouraging spending. If only their bonus offers for stays were as lucrative. Hint hint, Bonvoy 🙂

  • Saw this as soon as the month started and I noticed that it pretty much replaces the 10x Points per $ bonus that was on the Marriott Bonvoy cards. Unfortunately Eat Around Town is a bit more limiting in restaurant choice, but it does offer more flexibility for what credit cards you can use.

  • Is there a list of restaurants anywhere?

    • They’re usually embedded deep within the website somewhere but I’ve only used United’s program (but aren’t they all run by the same company?).
