[Extended]: Register your Marriott Bonvoy American Express for Bonus Spend Offer of up to 100,000 Points

Update 4/9/19: Registration period has been extended until May 31st, 2019.

The Offer

Register Here for this offer (Link isn’t yet working for everyone, try again tomorrow if it doesn’t work; you can also check the Amex Offer section to find it there and it may work better)

  • Register your American Express Marriott Bonvoy card to earn 25,000 points for every $25,000 in eligible purchases on the card during 2019.

  • You can get up to 100,000 bonus points.

    • Spend $25k throughout the year – get 25k points

    • Spend $50k throughout the year – get 50k bonus points

    • Spend $75k throughout the year – get 75k bonus points
    • Spend $100k throughout the year – get 100k bonus points

 

The Fine Print

  • Must register your card first to be eligible. Must register by April 7, 2019.
  • Spend from date of registration through December 31, 2019 will count for this spend bonus.
  • Only existing Marriott Bonvoy cardholders who have been member from January 23 or prior are eligible to signup for this offer.

Our Verdict

We reported previously that this bonus spend offer was coming, and Marriott reached out to let us know the offer will go live today, 2/24. (Thanks to Dansdeals who found the direct registration link.)

By spending in exact $25k increments, you land up back to the old SPG Amex reward rates, e.g. if you spend $25k you’ll get 75k total points (50k from regular earn + 25k from bonus) which is 3x Marriott points per dollar, the equivalent of 1x SPG point per dollar. Depending on how you value these points, it could become a nice option for everyday spend.

It seems to be targeted? We’re sorry. This promotion is only open to invited Card Members.

DP: I just registered my brilliant card. Fwiw, I upgraded my SPG to Lux before the bonvoy launch

I was able to do it too. I upgraded my SPG to luxury in October 2018 and was able to register for this promo.

My Brilliant card also let me register. But will the extra points actually post?

I registered my brilliant card, I just upgraded after the Bonvoy launch when they offered 100k points for 5k in spend. Hope they stack.

Tony

Seems like invitation only

Basically a free night category 1-4 for every 25K spent up to 4x.
My problem is 25K spent on a 2% card is $500 which is probably better then 75K Marriott and Club Carlson Business credit card gives a free night for every 10K spent up to 3x (no category restriction). And the Hilton and Hyatt CCs also give a free night after 15K spend, but still overall it’s a positive offer.

It’s basically giving us back the original SPG card point rate(3points per dollar on every day spent) I pass ✌🏽

No, thanks.

Rather spend the dough on the Hilton Ascend or Hyatt cards earning another ~ 2 Free nights between them!

Joe

I’m already done with those two free nights, so I guess I’ll take this 🙂

Do you know if there will be a similar offer on the business card?

I am a bit confused since there is the Bonvoy, Bonvoy Brilliant, and Bonvoy Business. Is this for the standard Bonvoy card only? That is a bit unfortunate (for me) since I only have the other two XD.

William Charles

Yeah just for the standard card

AndrewK

it worked for my Bonvoy Brilliant

Worthwhile if for nothing else than the ability to transfer points to multiple programs. 4 trips to SM and you’re done.

SM?

I’m curious if Simon will count towards this. The terms mention reloadable cards per usual. Simon counts towards points, but usually not towards cards that require spend (ex: Hilton Aspire 60k spend for free night). I’m guessing it won’t count, but I really hope I’m wrong.

Spent $25k at Simon last week. Statement closed a few days ago without the 25k bonus. Not sure if that is expected and the bonus hits later, or if that means Simon failed.

Amex does not count spend at SM for any bonus points. Straight-up spend, yes, but this is a “bonus” deal and I am sure they would exclude it from counting. They’re on to you, you’re not going to slip this one past them.

Somehow I got “AN EXCLUSIVE OFFER: SPEND $5,000 AND GET 7,500 POINTS EACH MONTH FOR SIX MONTHS, UP TO 45,000 POINTS” from business version.
Seem better than regular spg.

I got this offer too

Still nothing here and I should qualify. I am honestly on the fence as to whether this is worth it given the current state of the Marriott program but perhaps Amex is going to make my decision for me.

BradB

Same boat. “We’re sorry. This promotion is only open to invited Card Members.” Should qualify.

Yeah and I didn’t get targeted for the business offers either. Despite considerable spend on both up to the devaluation last summer.

Nick

Just a heads up that this still seems targeted. My fiance was able to register just fine, but the only link that works for me is the refer a friend one. All others say they are for solicited card members only.

Oops, wrong link, please delete comment.

I haven’t seen any mention here or in the terms of the promo about when they will provide the bonus points. Anyone know?

Jim Jones

I’m curious about this as well. Would hope that they post as soon as you do the $25k spend. If not then, then they really better post by the statement date of the spend period.

gbert
gbert

Unfortunately not. I had a statement close several days ago with over 25k spend and while the regular 50k points have posted to marriott, the bonus 25k is not reflected anywhere on my statement or in my account..

Curtis

Ditto. They better post by the next statement date at least. If we have to wait until the end of the year, that is no bueno.

I decided to do a chat with Amex about this. They said:

Here are the bonus details: Solicited Marriott Bonvoy American Express Card Members who register by 7th April, 2019 can earn 25,000 bonus points after each time they spend $25,000 in eligible purchases on their Card from February 24, 2019 through December 31, 2019 up to a maximum of 100,000 bonus points.

The Bonus points will be posted to their Bonvoy member account 10 – 12 weeks after you reach each of the Purchase Requirements.
