Marriott Off-Peak Pricing Worldwide And Bonus Elite Qualifying Nights

DDMS IconNever Miss Another Deal - Follow DansDeals on Facebook

Marriott introduced peak and off-peak pricing last year, with the caveat that it would change dynamically every month, so that you keep having to check if rates for your dates have changed.

Curiously, pricing at many hotels has remained at standard or peak levels throughout the COVID-19 crisis.

Marriott announced today that most of their hotels can be booked between today and 6/30/20 for travel between today and 7/31/20 at off-peak rates. That’s logical, though I’d have hoped they would just make all of 2020 at off-peak rates.

That means a night at the category 8 S. Regis or Ritz Carlton Bal Harbour in July will run 70K points per night or 56K points per night on a 5 night stay.

Some hotels will be even less, such as the category 8 Blue Palace Crete, thanks to off-peak PointSavers:

Marriott also announced that if you qualified for status in 2019, in late July they will give you bonus elite qualifying nights for this year:

  • Silver: 5 bonus elite nights
  • Gold: 13 bonus elite nights
  • Platinum: 25 bonus elite nights
  • Titanium: 38 bonus elite nights
  • Ambassador: 50 bonus elite nights

Marriott has already extended elite status for those members, but the nights will help them reach the 50 and 75 night thresholds for choice benefits and they’ll count towards lifetime status. Plus they combine with up to 30 elite nights for having Marriott cards so that you can more easily reach a higher elite status level.

Ambassador elites with 100 night this year will also be given the ability to nominate someone for Platinum status.

Those are all nice givebacks for elites, but it’s hard to get too excited about Marriott status given that it pales in comparison to what Starwood status once offered and to what Hyatt status still offers.

Marriott previously announced other givebacks, like extensions on certificate expiration dates and a suspension of points expiration.

Will these givebacks keep you loyal to Marriott?

Who would consider staying in a hotel now?
They couldn’t give me a room for free considering all the contact I’d be forced to make there.


“can be booked by 6/30/20 for travel by 7/31/20 at off-peak rates.”
Dan I’m confused, are you saying hotel stays between 6/30 – 7/31 can be booked NOW at off peak rates ?


No, Marriott lost me 3-4 years ago


Same here! Bonvoy’s disregard to their customers is mind boggling!


What happened? Brainwashed from Dan?


What Is point savers?


I have both Amex business Bonvoy and consumer Amex Bonvoy but the two have never been linked. Is there a way to link them so I can take advantage of the 30 nights per year?


Call marriot and ask them to merge your two accounts.


The cards themselves aren’t linked; rather they should both be linked to the same Bonvoy number. If they linked to separate Bonvoy numbers, then that means you have 2 Bonvoy accounts. Call Marriott Bonvoy to merge them, this has nothing to do with AMEX.


So if i currently have a consumer amex with 15 nights credit plus 4 nights stayed and i open the business card now will i get another 15 nights upon approval and then 13 in july which will bring me to 49 total? Just one more to get platinum?


Sorry 47 total so 3 to go =)


Any chance that booking window will be extended ?


Bonus elite nights posted for me.
