Marriott Bonvoy members can earn double bonus points by taking advantage of a delicious dining promotion this month.
Members who sign up for the deal — run through Marriott’s dining rewards program — earn 8X per dollar spent at participating restaurants through October 31. (The standard bonus is 4X.)
Plus, members also earn 1,000 bonus points after spending at least $30 during the month.
To join the promotion, log in to the Bonvoy website and scroll to the bottom. Here’s what to click.
You must enter the credit card numbers you plan to use for your purchases. (If you’re familiar with Sky Miles Dining or similar programs, you know the drill.) This is how they’ll track your eligible spending.
Remember: not all dining purchases are eligible. Only certain restaurants participate (search here).
Worth noting: if you’re already enrolled in another Rewards Network program, this promotion apparently takes precedence. Not long after submitting my cards, I received this message:
Maximize Earnings with a Good Dining Card!
You don’t need to use a Marriott credit card for this deal. Use whatever cards you want — preferably ones that earn bonus points on dining purchases:
A few examples are:
- U.S. Bank Cash+ Visa (up to 5X on chosen categories; learn more now about cashback credit cards.)
- American Express Gold Card (4X)
- American Express Business Gold Card (up to 4X)
- Capital One SavorOne Cash Rewards Credit Card (3X) No annual fee!
- U.S. Bank Altitude Go (4X) No annual fee!
- American Express Green Card (3X)
- Chase Freedom Flex (3X) No annual fee!
- Chase Freedom Unlimited (3X) No annual fee!
- Chase Sapphire Reserve (3X)
If you dine out regularly — or use a restaurant’s delivery or take-out service — this is a good opportunity to earn some bonus Marriott points while using a good dining card to accrue even more miles.
But if you’re happy with your current dining program and don’t know if you’ll ever use Marriott points, you’re probably OK sticking with your current selection.
