Marriott Homes & Villas has a new promotion. For better or worse, this promotion is not just a repeat of the usual two promotions. This time, Bonvoy members can earn 1,000 bonus points per night on Marriott Homes & Villas stays. To get these bonus points, you must book before April 7, 2023 and stay before May 31, 2023.
This promotion isn't as good as the two promotions that usually alternate: earning 10,000 bonus points after three or four nights or earning double base points. The exception is if you book a long stay, then the points can add up through this promotion.

Marriott Homes & Villas Promotion
1,000 Bonus Points Per Night Promotion
As usual, this Homes & Villas promotion has a small booking window. Book a stay of three or more consecutive nights at a Marriott Homes & Villas property before April 7, 2023. Then, complete the stay before May 31, 2023. And you will earn 1,000 bonus points for each night that you stay.
There is no registration necessary for this promotion. In addition, the terms and conditions don't state any limit to how many points you can earn.
Note that the typical repeating promotion offers 10,000 bonus points on a stay of at least three or four nights. This current promotion is only better if you stay more than 10 nights consecutively at the same property. For shorter stays, consider waiting until a better promotion rolls around — which seem to be offered every couple of weeks.
- Stays must be three or more consecutive nights.
- Stays must be booked before April 7 and completed before May 31, 2023.
- No limit is stated for how many points can be earned on this promotion.
[Booking Closed] 10,000 Bonus Points Promotion
All Marriot Bonvoy members will earn 10,000 bonus points on all stays at participating homes booked before March 11, 2023. The stay(s) must be completed by May 14, 2023.
To qualify, you'll just need to book and stay four consecutive nights (previous versions only required three nights) at the same Marriott Homes & Villas property. Members do not need to register for this promotion. The bonus points will be automatic.
Marriott doesn't list a minimum spending requirement for this promotion. So, you'll earn the bonus no matter how much or little you spend on the booking. That makes this promotion great for maximizing cheaper stays.
Bonus points are in addition to the points you earn with your membership, elite statuses, and applicable credit cards. These can add up to 14.75 points per dollar spent. Just note that taxes, booking fees, cleaning fees, and other charges do not qualify for points earnings. Make sure to check out our guide to Marriott Bonvoy Elite Statuses to see how to maximize your rewards.
- A “stay” is defined as four or more consecutive nights spent at the same property.
- Bookings must be made before March 11, 2023.
- Stays four or more consecutive nights must be completed during the promotion earning period. This began February 20, 2023, and is up to and including nights stayed on or before May 14, 2023.
[Booking Closed] Double Points Promotion
This promotion doesn't require any registration. Simply book a stay of two or more nights at participating Marriott Homes & Villas before January 25, 2023, to earn double base points on your stay. Your stay must be completed before April 30, 2023.
Once again, members get double base points on bookings. That means 10x base points instead of 5x. Elite members will get up to a 75% elite bonus on the base earnings. Marriott Bonvoy cardholders can get up to 6x points on the credit card charge, depending on which co-branded card they have. That means top-status Marriott Bonvoy members could get up to 19.75 points per dollar spent by maximizing this promotion:
- 5x base points
- 5x bonus points with this promotion
- 3.75x elite bonus points if you have Titanium or Ambassador Elite status
- 6x points if you charge the purchase to a Marriott Bonvoy Boundless® Credit Card, Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant® American Express® Card, or Marriott Bonvoy Business® American Express® Card.
Meanwhile, Marriott Bonvoy Bold® Credit Card cardholders would earn at least 13.5 points for every dollar spent on this promotion: 5x base points + 5xbonus points + at least 0.5 elite bonus (Silver Elite status is a benefit of the card) + 3x points for charging the purchase to the Bonvoy Bold.
- 2+ nights of the stay must be consecutive.
General Terms and Conditions For Homes & Villas Promotions

- Points will automatically appear in the member's account 3-6 weeks after their stay.

The new promotion offering 1,000 bonus points per night is an interesting twist to the usual promotions. It's best for members planning long stays — 11 or more consecutive nights. Remember that the bonus points are on top of the base 5x Bonvoy points per dollar spent. It's also in addition to the points you'll earn with your elite status and branded credit card.
Vacation bookings are reaching an all-time high. Travel restrictions during the past couple of years have made people crave a vacation more than ever. If you want to take advantage of this promotion, don't wait too long or the selection of available properties will dwindle.
Some members may consider Marriott Homes & Villas to be quite expensive compared to a traditional hotel stay. It's also important to note that Marriott doesn't manage the homes. Instead, they work with third-party property management companies. This means that every home may not be to the same standard. In fact, some homes will be of better value than others.

I just recently priced a Vacasa rental that was also shown on Marriott Homes and Villas. The base price was higher through MHV which made the taxes and fees higher. A 4-night rental was $600 more through Marriott, so if you’re considering this promo, please search other rental sites to see if the 13.5x to 19.75x points bonus is really worth a $125/night price difference.
My experience with Marriot Home & Villa is not good at all. I booked a 3 Night stay end of Jun totaling $564 with cleaning fees & taxes. Not a bad deal only because I stacked it with the AMEX promotion to get $100 when spending $500 or more otherwise the home stays are overpriced. I booked the stay under the double points promotion at the time through my Bonvoy account. I waited a couple of weeks, but nothing posted then I called and spent hours being tossed around between Marriot who will tell you they do not handle Villa reservation and tell you to contact their 3rd party Vacasa who will tell you they only handle management of the booking and not the points as that handled through Marriot then your put on an endless circle of going nowhere. Finally, today after 2+ months I noticed within my points activity (not under stay credit) there is an entry “HVMI home earn” for 4,646 points which I assume must be from Home & Villas, although the entry does not give any additional info as normal stays do to explain # of night and the point earning breakdown. These Villa stays earn points ONLY and not stay credits. I was 2 nights away from earning Platinum and this 3-night stay would have put me over but unfortunately you will not earn stay credits, points only and you must wait months to collect them.
This is a good program. I will try this in the future 🙂
Execelent notice. Obviusly ill take this promotion
This promotion or any other promotion that Marriott Homes and Villas come up with do not participate in. I did everything right on booking our villa. Booked through them, paid with the appropriate credit card, the stay was the first of November and just finally today, after more emails then I can count did not get hardly any points. Also, I paid more for this stay just because of the 10X promotion. I could have got it way cheaper through the actual villa rental place. I will have to say we have been Marriott members for some time, but our company is going to switch away from them. We do not have issues with IHG and Hilton. I am hearing this from a lot of our customers too.
Very tempting. It’s a nice boost if you do these kind of properties. I usually stay in hotels but might need it this year. I will see what kind of promos are out on my summer vacation.
Pretty nice that they are supporting people seeking alternative lodging options to hotels. Hopefully this is indicative of a broader acceptance of the trend!
This, I would try. AirBNB, not so much.
If you’re open to this, I’d certainly recommend being open to Airbnb as well. Same concept, structurced in a similar manner. Both are corporations, managing private homes for stays. And, both have an enormous incentive to manage quality control. I have had wonderful stays at multiple Airbnbs. The only time I didn’t, Airbnb stepped up and immediately made it right.
Sounds quite interesting. How can we know if such Marriott credit cards are available for non US residents ?
On the other hand, this is a “AirBnB” type of offer run by Marriott, are these property fully owned by Marriott or properties from private landowners that put them for rent through Marriott ? If so, is it possible to enter into an agreement and how ?
Thanks for the feedback,
Fun fact: very few (under 100 last time I looked) Marriott hotels are owned by Marriott. So, I’d assume the Homes & Villas program isn’t much different than how Marriott runs hotels: it sets requirements and takes a portion of the nightly rate. If you have a property you’d like to list, it looks like this is the form to submit: https://homesandvillas.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/requests/new?ticket_form_id=360005194854
DO CANADIAN AMEX CARDHOLDERS QUALIFY FOR THE BONUS OFFER ?
Unfortunately, it looks like it’s only open to Marriott’s “US portfolio of American Express and JPMorgan Chase cobrand credit cards”
This is structured like many Choice Hotel promotions. That’s not a good thing.
I cannot really make the comparisons. Could you elaborate?
