BETHESDA, Md., May 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Summer travel is just around the corner and we are giving Marriott Rewards members* even more reasons to celebrate and enjoy some sun, fun and adventure. From May 24 through September 05, 2016, Marriott Rewards members who register for the Summer Bonus promotion can earn up to 10,000 bonus points for future stays and be automatically entered into the Sweet Summer Sweeps. The centerpiece of the sweepstakes is a ten million points giveaway to 100 winning Marriott Rewards members who will each receive 100,000 loyalty points. They can redeem points for stays at more than 4,300 hotels participating in Marriott Rewards or through the program's new experiences marketplace launching shortly. Members can also donate points to charity or share points with a friend. This summer bonus is in addition to the everyday benefits of Free Wi-Fi and Member Rates that Marriott Rewards Members receive.
The Summer Bonus promotion works like this:
- By registering for the promotion here, members can begin earning 2,000 bonus points for every stay starting with their second stay for potentially up to 10,000 bonus points in total between the May 24 – September 5 promotional period.
- Registered members residing in the U.S., Canada** and the U.K. will also be entered into the Sweet Summer Sweeps, a ten million-point giveaway, where 100 members will each win 100,000 bonus points. Providing additional chances to win, Members will also receive one entry for each night they stay at a participating Marriott during the promotion period. See the Official Rules for more details at http://MarriottRewards.com/Sweeps.
- All Marriott Rewards brands are participating in the Summer Bonus promotion with the exception of The Ritz-Carlton which has its own promotion taking place now.
In addition to redeeming points for hotel stays, members will soon be able to take advantage of Marriott Rewards recently announced experiences marketplace. All Marriott Rewards and The Ritz-Carlton Rewards members can redeem points to pursue their passions by choosing from a wide array of curated special experiences and opportunities. Whether it's tickets to one of the hottest shows on Broadway; a once-in-a-lifetime chance to hang out with your favorite sports team; or a private wine tasting with a world-famous sommelier, members can redeem Marriott Rewards or The Ritz-Carlton Rewards points to access a marketplace of unique experiences that allow them to explore their personal interests in the most meaningful and memorable ways. The experiences marketplace will be available globally to all members in late May.
And it's not just points. Marriott Rewards members enjoy additional benefits, including:
Member Rates: An exclusive rate guaranteeing the lowest price for members who book direct on Marriott.com, Marriott's mobile app, 1-800-MARRIOTT and Marriott-branded hotels.
Marriott Mobile: When members book their stays on Marriott channels, they can take full advantage of the Marriott Mobile app to check-in and check-out for their stay, receive an alert when their room is ready, and make service requests directly to associates at more than 700 hotels before, during and after their stay.
