The Marriott Bonvoy American Express Card will earn extra points on Marriott stays, restaurant and gas station purchases until January 3


An amazing new offer came out today for the Marriott Bonvoy American Express Card! This offer does not require registration which means it is open to all existing and new cardholders. Yes even if you don't have the card and get it you can get this bonus but you'll want to do it sooner than later so as to maximize the amount of points you get. Big shout out to Rewards Canada contributor Jeff W. for alerting us to this offer!


Here are the details of the offer revealed today: 


  • Earn a total of 10 points for every $1 in eligible Card purchases at participating Marriott Bonvoy hotels, up to 25,000 bonus points. That’s an additional 5 points for every $1 on top of the standard earn rate of 5 points.

  • Earn a total of 5 points for every $1 in Card purchases at eligible restaurants (including eligible takeout and food delivery) in Canada, up to 15,000 bonus points. That’s an additional 3 points for every $1 on top of the standard earn rate of 2 points.


  • Earn a total of 5 points for every $1 in Card purchases at eligible gas stations in Canada, up to 1,500 bonus points. That’s an additional 3 points for every $1 on top of the standard earn rate of 2 points.

 

If you maxed out all three you would earn a total of 41,500 bonus Marriott Bonvoy points - that's worth $415 at a minimum in our books. As you can see we value Marriott Bonvoy points at 1 cent a piece which translates to 10% back on the Marriott stays with this offer and 5% back on those restaurant and gas stations purchases. I know for a fact I will now put all my gas station purchases on this card (sorry Amex Gold Rewards card - you'll gather some dust until January). Restaurants however will continue to go on my Cobalt card since it earn 5 Membership Rewards points per dollar which actually equates to 6 Marriott Bonvoy points. As to Marriott stays we personally don't have any planned between now and January 3 but will definitely take this offer into consideration for choosing a hotel if those plans change.

I know I've said before but I'll say it again - American Express has been one of the best companies to really engage their cardmembers during this pandemic and this offer just add to solidifying that statement.

There is no set landing page for this offer but you can learn more about and apply for the Marriott Bonvoy American Express card here.
