I booked a hotel with points for 2 nights and I don't want to stay for the 2nd night due to the uncleanliness of the hotel. Will I get my points back?

2 questions

1) does the ritz Carlton not upgrade for status? I heard maybe they donít is that true?

2) how does 5th night free work? Is it charged as 4 full nights and the 5th is free or is it averaged into the price per room for 5 nights (Nafka Mina is that I have 50k certificates that will only work if the price per night is reduced to an average.)

To the best of my knowledge:
1. They don't
2. The 5th free doesn't work with certificates, regardless of the price.

Looking to book a nice hotel in Paris using 50k cert (+15k top up). The issue is every nice hotel seems to be just above the 65k max per night.
Any ideas?
1 night, two adults Apr 2- Apr 3.

How to gift a Marriott Bonvoy reward night to someone else


This is usually fiddlier than it should be, and often not possible if you want to stick strictly to the T&C of the scheme. The reason is often that hotels donít want to be paying for elite benefits if the actual guest is not an elite member, or do not want to encourage the unofficial sale of reward stays.

Marriott Bonvoy has recently tweaked its rules on how to book a reward night for someone else so itís worth looking at how you can do it.

Before you ask, the only hotel reward scheme that officially lets you grant elite privileges to other people is World of Hyatt. A top-tier Globalist member can call up to book a reward night for someone else, and that person will receive all Globalist privileges (upgrade to a suite if available at check-in, free parking, free breakfast, 4pm check out etc).

How can you gift a Marriott Bonvoy free night to someone else?
The process is outlined in 3.2.c of the Marriott Bonvoy terms and conditions here.

Before you bother gifting a night, remember that you can now transfer Marriott Bonvoy points to another person online. There is no fee for this and you can gift up to 100,000 points per year.

Arguably this is less faff than the method for gifting reward nights, unless your recipient does not meet the criteria for receiving gifted points. These are to have a Bonvoy account over 90 days old, or at least 30 days old with qualifying activity.

Here are the terms and process for gifting Marriott Bonvoy awards:

you can only gift five stays in a calendar year
you can EITHER call Marriott Bonvoy to book the reward night OR make the reward night booking online in your name and then call Marriott Bonvoy at some future time to swap over the name
any changes to gifted reservations must be made by telephone
the recipient will not receive your elite status benefits (whilst not clear in the rules, it appears that they will receive any elite status benefits of their own)
neither you nor the recipient will receive elite night credit for the stay (reward nights usually qualify for elite night credit so this is a negative)
There are two points here to note:

the ability to swap the room name to a third party later on allows you to jump on a redemption online if you see one, and change the name later at your convenience
if the recipient is chasing or has Marriott Bonvoy status, it may be better to transfer your Marriott Bonvoy points to them and let them book the reward directly, because they will then receive elite night credit for the stay

I'll share with you a sooper seekrit....
You can book the reservation in the app and chat with the hotel to add the other person as a guest. I r do e this quite a few times

Get a 40%-50% bonus when you buy Marriott Bonvoy hotel points


Marriott Bonvoy has launched a new deal if you buy their hotel points.

You will get a 40% or 50% bonus on all points purchases. Other permutations may be out there but the majority seem to get one of these.

The minimum purchase to get the bonus is 2,000 points.

The annual purchase cap has now been permanently raised to 100,000 points.  With the bonus, this means that you could pick up a maximum of 150,000 Marriott Bonvoy points.

At the top end you are paying, if targeted for 50%, $1,250 for 150,000 points.


However, you might find it worthwhile if:

- you are topping off your account before making a points booking.

- you are close to 60,000 Marriott Bonvoy points and want to make a transfer into airline miles (you get a bonus of 5,000 airline miles when you transfer 60,000 Bonvoy points into 20,000 airline miles in most programmes)

- you are planning a stay at a property where you know you will get outsized value
Outsize value is still possible, despite Marriott Bonvoy moving towards revenue-based redemptions. With no reward charts still available, however, you need to look at it on a case by case basis.

https://buy.points.com/marketing/marriott/landing_page/index.html?irgwc=1

The offer runs to 2nd July.

Bonvoy terms and conditions state that you can transfer points to another account, up to 100,000 per year. An account can receive up to 500,000 transferred points per year. Is this 100K points limit the total a single Bonvoy account can transfer per year regardless of the number of recipients? Or is it 100K per recipient?

For example, if Reuven already transferred 100K points to Shimon, can Reuven transfer another 50K to Levi and then Levi transfer the 50K to Shimon?

Get bonus Avios with new Marriott Bonvoy accounts

Marriott is running an offer for any British Airways Executive Club member without a Marriott Bonvoy account. Anyone without a Marriott Bonvoy account who signs up will be able to earn up to 3,000 bonus Avios.

The offer is only open to people who open Bonvoy accounts between 1st June and 30th November 2023 via a special page.

The promotion has two (really three) stages:

To earn the first 1,000 bonus Avios, you need to create a Marriott Bonvoy account and complete a paid stay at a ĎQualifying Rateí at a Marriott Bonvoy-participating hotel
To earn a further 2,000 bonus Avios, just complete a second paid stay at a Marriott Bonvoy-participating hotel
You have up to 60 days from when you join Marriott Bonvoy to earn the 3,000 Avios.

That means youíll have to stay at two hotels in that time to fulfil the requirements. You can see the list of participating properties here Ė basically, it is virtually all the brands minus Bulgari and, possibly, Ritz Carlton Reserve. Marriott Homes & Villas is also excluded.

Note that you will be earning Avios instead of Marriott Bonvoy points. Once the Avios bonus is triggered you may want to swap to earning points instead of Avios. (The Avios rate at most brands is 2 Avios per $1 spent, dropping to 1 Avios per $1 at the lower cost brands).

How do I extend the expiration date of Marriott points? I tried booking and cancelling but last activity date didn't change.
