This cash back percentage was 1.5 percent.

Final Boarding Call

With Rakuten, you can earn cash back while taking advantage of sales which are offered by Marriott — but I am not sure as to whether the bump from 1.5 percent cash back to four percent cash back by booking your reservations through Rakuten and completing your stays with Marriott is temporary or permanent, as I have not found an expiration date for this offer.

If you are not yet a member of Rakuten, you can use this referral link of mine — https://www.rakuten.com/r/THEGAT129?eeid=28187 — and if you spend at least $30.00, both you and I will receive $30.00 as a result, which is not a bad deal at all.

One sale with which you can take advantage is that you can save 25 percent off of the guest room standard rate when you stay at your choice of 1,824 participating hotel and resort properties in North America, South America, Central America, Asia, Africa, Europe, the Middle East, and the Caribbean with Marriott Bonvoy and its Escapes promotion, which offers exclusive savings every other Wednesday through Sunday across select destinations — and is valid for stays at hotel properties over the next four weekends and for stays at resort properties all the days of the week — but you must book your reservations as soon as possible, as availability is extremely limited and the promotion is only good while supplies last.
