Earn 2,000 Bonus Marriott Bonvoy Points With Uber Partnership Spring 2021

Imagine earning Marriott Bonvoy points on your way to the airport, on your way home, traveling from one point to another within a city while you are traveling, or ordering in food to your hotel room or home.

…but in order to take advantage of this offer, you must link your Marriott Bonvoy membership account and Uber membership account on the latest version of the official mobile application software program of Uber; and then complete a qualifying transaction by Monday, May 31, 2021 at 11:59 in the evening Eastern Daylight Time. You can earn the bonus of 2,000 Marriott Bonvoy points only once.

A qualifying transaction is one which occurs within the United States — meaning either:

  • A ride taken with Uber XL, Uber Black, Uber SUV, or Uber Comfort; or
  • An order placed through Uber Eats with a minimum amount of $25.00 in United States dollars in spend after the calculation of any applicable promotions or discounts — excluding taxes, fees, and tips or gratuities

    • Uber XL
    • Uber Black
    • Uber SUV
    • Uber Comfort
  • 6 Marriott Bonvoy points on orders booked by using Uber Eats delivered to Marriott International properties — excluding Homes & Villas by Marriott International

I am somewhat surprised that six Marriott Bonvoy points are not offered when taking a qualifying Uber ride to a Marriott hotel or resort property as a final destination — similar to that of Uber Eats.

This partnership appears to be in response to the partnership which the Hilton Honors frequent guest loyalty program has had with Lyft since May of 2019.

Although this partnership between Marriott Bonvoy and Uber is great news if you have always wanted to earn Marriott Bonvoy points while using ground transportation, you should still compare alternatives if you are sensitive to price, as Uber will not always be the least expensive option.

I think that this is a great new option to earn Marriott Bonvoy points — and I am considering taking advantage of it…
