Marriott previously announced that they would extend free night awards from credit cards, travel packages, choice benefits, or promotions that expire in 2020 until 1/31/21, and then until 8/1/21.
They have now announced that any of those awards that were originally set to expire between 1/1/20-1/2/22 will now expire on 1/3/22.
This extension should reflect online automatically by 5/6.
Marriott previously announced that points won’t expire until 2/28/21 and then 7/31/21. That has been extended through 3/31/22. Points will begin expiring again on 4/1/22. Marriott points normally expire after 24 months of inactivity.
Hyatt and Hilton previously extended free nights through 12/31/21 last October, so this basically matches those extensions, though Marriott needed an extra half year to do that. Hopefully we’ll see chains extend free nights through next summer, when more travel around the globe should open up.
