Everything About The Marriott Bonvoy Rewards Program

From humble beginnings in 1983 as Marriott Honored Guest Awards, Marriott Rewards is the oldest continuously operating hotel loyalty program in operation today. With roughly 54 million members, Marriott Rewards (when combined with sister rewards program The Ritz-Carlton Rewards) is the second largest hotel loyalty program in the world, second only to IHG Rewards Club (92 million). That said, Marriott Rewards members have access to more hotel rooms across the world.

Which Credit Cards Earn Marriott Bonvoy Points?

While none of Marriott’s co-brand cards offers the return on non-bonus spending of the SPG cards of old, cardholders can still collect a ton of Marriott points by stacking credit card spending on bonus categories with shopping portal bonuses and Marriott promos, and by taking advantage of any bonus points awarded for in-hotel spend.

Marriott Gold and Platinum Status Challenge

Marriott has announced a status match challenge; very similar to the Starwood status challenge from last year. This time around the match requires 8 or 16 stays, which is lower than the 9 or 18 stays needed for the SPG challenge. Unfortunately, there is no link to the offer, and you will have to call up to register.
