Update: I STILL Cannot Register For the Latest Marriott Bonvoy Promotion Autumn 2021. Can You?

I suppose that I do not qualify to participate for this “global” promotion after all.

No fewer than 22 days after this article first reported that you can earn 1,500 bonus Marriott Bonvoy points per eligible paid stay at participating hotel and resort properties worldwide between Tuesday, September 14, 2021 and Sunday, December 12, 2021, I am still not able to register for this promotion, with which you can also earn 3,000 Marriott Bonvoy points per eligible paid stay at All-Inclusive by Marriott Bonvoy resort properties…

Update: I STILL Cannot Register For the Latest Marriott Bonvoy Promotion Autumn 2021. Can You?

…but if you are eligible to do so, you must register for this promotion prior to your first stay within the promotion period by Sunday, November 28, 2021 in order to participate — that is, if you can even register for what is supposed to be a global promotion.

The message I keep getting when I attempt to register for this promotion is:

A Note About This Promotion

We’re sorry, but there was an error in directing you to this promotion.

The reason for this error could be:

  • You’re trying to access a miles promotion and are a points-earner, or vice versa
  • You are not eligible for this promotion
  • This promotion has expired

Updating your earning preference is fast and easy; simply sign into your account. For all other issues, please contact Marriott Bonvoy Customer Support.

Final Boarding Call

I cannot impart to you the terms and conditions for this promotion — simply because I do not have access to them.

When the IHG Rewards Club frequent guest loyalty program launched its Accelerate promotion for the summer of 2019 on May 1, I initially did not qualify to participate in it — but I did qualify for it the next day. Perhaps something similar may still happen with this latest promotion from Marriott Bonvoy even though the promotion already started one week ago…

…but then again, readers of The Gate have had problems with registering for global promotions from Marriott Bonvoy in the past — such as PCB, who commented last year that “I have tried several times and the Marriott site says I have been to this site in error and cannot register. I have tried many times. Is anyone else having issues?”

Are you having any issues with registering for the latest “global” promotion from Marriott Bonvoy?

    1. Thank you for that information, Brutus; but I purposely held off on doing that to see if Marriott would be proactive, as they almost always had been for as long as I have been a member.

      No one should have to take the time to contact customer service simply to partake in what is otherwise a “global” promotion — and a few readers of The Gate have complained in recent years that they have had similar issues…

The promotion earning period is for stays between September 14, 2021, and December 12, 2021, at participating Marriott Bonvoy properties. Only stays made after registration will qualify toward the promotion. A “stay” is defined as consecutive nights spent at the same hotel, regardless of check-in/checkout activity on any points-eligible rate (“Qualifying Rate”).
