Marriott is back with another promotion for new users, where you can earn a free night after two paid stays.

Here’s what you need to know.

After signing up for a Marriott Bonvoy account, you will earn a free night after completing two paid stays through 29 April 2020. That free night is valid for a free night at Category 1-4 hotels, with a maximum of 25,000 points. I’ve included Marriott’s award chart below for your reference.

Note that the offer is valid for one year from the date of issuance, so be sure to use the certificate before it expires or its value to you is exactly zero. The award will be automatically deposited into your account after completing the stays and you can use additional points to upgrade your room type, if you’d like.

To get your free night, simply search for hotels using Marriott Bonvoy points as you normally would and select one that prices at 25,000 Marriott points per night or less. Choose your desired room type, and at checkout, you will be given the option to pay using your Marriott 25,000-point certificate. Remember, this promotion is for new users only — not existing Bonvoy members.

If you’re curious to know what 25,000 Marriott points are worth, here are some options around the world.

Westin Guadalajara 

Standard points rate: Category 3 – 20,000 points per night

Catered to business travellers, this hotel in Mexico includes a fitness center, White Tea Bath & Body products and Westin Heavenly Beds. 20,000 will score you either a king or queen room.


Standard points rate: Category 3 – 15,000 points per night

This Autograph hotel is a nearly two-hour drive from Cape Town, which may explain its lower category. But with a golf course ranked in the top 10 in South Africa, and close to whale watching, this resort is a steal. The 15,000 point room, while not fancy, will get you a garden view with a balcony.

Nest Hotel, a Member of Design Hotels

Standard points rate: Category 4 – 25,000 points per night

This five-star hotel located just minutes from Seoul (ICN) Airport on the island of Yeongjongdo. This 370-room hotel offers views of the Yellow Sea. Built as the “ultimate retreat,” the hotel includes a library cafe, mini-theater, spa and an outdoor heated infinity pool.

Moxy NYC Downtown

Standard points rate: Category 4 – 25,000 points per night

You can’t go wrong with affordable hotel options in New York City, and the Moxy Downtown is no exception. This hotel is located near Tribeca and includes virtual check-in. Lucky for you, 25,000 points will get you a queen, king, or two queen beds. Each room includes a 50-inch TV and the hotel has a fitness center.
