Marriott Bonvoy ‘Eat Around Town’
Marriott Bonvoy has a program called Eat Around Town. Members can redeem Marriott Bonvoy points earned at over 11,000 restaurants participating in Eat Around Town towards free nights at more than 7,000 participating properties in 132 countries and territories and experiences through Marriott Bonvoy Moments.
Marriott Bonvoy members who have enrolled in the program will earn points faster both when they dine at participating Eat Around Town restaurants while traveling and in their daily lives. Beginning today through October 31, 2020, Marriott Bonvoy members will receive eight points for every dollar spent at participating restaurants as part of an introductory offer. Thereafter, Marriott Bonvoy Elite members will earn six points per dollar spent and members four points per dollar spent.
Members who are U.S. residents can start earning by simply visiting EatAroundTown.Marriott.com, creating a dining profile, and linking a credit or debit card. From there, their points will automatically be tracked when they dine at participating restaurants, allowing them to earn every time they use their linked card. Check out the Chase and American Express Marriott Bonvoy credit cards here.
There’s also a 1,000 points bonus if you sign up, spend at least $30 and complete a review online.
There’s many other programs out there that reward you for dining out. This is probably not the best option, but it could be for those who prefer Marriott points, especially during the promotional period when you earn 8x.
