Marriott’s Eat Around Town, which is their dining program like all of the airline dining programs, is offering 1,000 bonus points when you sign up, use a linked card to spend $30 at a participating restaurant within 30 days, and leave a review. That’s not a huge bonus given that Greg recently determined Marriott points to be worth 0.7c each (about $7), but it’s better than nothing.
- Marriott is offering 1,000 bonus points when you join its Eat Around Town dining program, link a credit or debit card, spend $30 or more at a participating restaurant with your linked card, and leave a review within the first 30 days

- This bonus offer is open to all new Eat Around Town by Marriott Bonvoy™ members who have not yet created an account and linked a credit and/or debit card.
- To qualify for and earn this New Member Bonus, you must (i) create a web login and link a valid credit and/or debit card to your account by June 18, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern time, (ii) spend at least $30 (including tax and tip) in one dine at any participating restaurant, bar, or club within 30 days of joining the Eat Around Town program if you joined prior to February 15, 2020, or within 90 days of joining the Eat Around Town program if you joined between February 15, 2020 and June 18, 2020, (iii) pay the check with a credit and/or debit card linked to your Eat Around Town program account, (iv) remain opted in to receive emails from the Eat Around Town program with a valid, deliverable email address, and (v) complete an online review of the restaurant, bar, or club within 30 days of your visit.
- Please note that all checks must be paid for with a credit or debit card linked to the Eat Around Town program at the time of the visit. You may only earn this bonus once for a maximum amount of 1,000 Marriott Bonvoy bonus points. Offer may not be combinable with other Eat Around Town bonuses and each qualifying visit can only apply toward a single bonus, as determined by the Eat Around Town program. All account inquiries related to this bonus must be received by December 18, 2020.
Again, the bonus here is relatively small, but it beats no bonus at all and many readers are probably spending well over $30 per month at participating restaurants. In general, I’d probably prefer the 3 airline miles per dollar that you can earn via several airline dining programs over the max of 6 Marriott points per dollar (only for Marriott elite members) for most orders, but I’d take a thousand easy bonus points for my wife and I each if we were spending at included restaurants.
I assume that take-out orders paid for at the restaurant will trigger this bonus, but not online orders placed through GrubHub/UberEats/etc.
