British Airways Avios Hotel Partners 30% Bonus

On my mind (Marriott spend bonus edition)

In 2018 I made a very deliberate effort to reach near-top-tier Marriott elite status.  At the time, the status level was called Platinum Premier Elite, but now it is Titanium elite.  I made the push for that 75 night status, not because it’s much more valuable than 50 night Platinum Elite status, but because I thought it would be the best way to keep mid-tier Platinum status for multiple years (for an explanation, please see:…

How To Start Earning 3x On One Type Of Marriott Bonvoy Card (Although It’s Probably Not Worth It)

Marriott Bonvoy American Express Card

A month ago, Amex and Chase announced changes to the SPG / Marriott credit cards to account for the Marriott Bonvoy rebranding. Some of those changes included new benefits, with one of them – the ability to earn up to 100,000 bonus points per year – coming into force today. You can register for the spending offer here. That said, the benefit isn’t very enticing for a few reasons. A post today by Lucky reminded…

Marriott Bonvoy Complete Guide

This post has been updated with the latest Bonvoy credit card information, shortcuts to elite status, point management (how to share points & keep points alive), and more. Marriott Bonvoy is the all-in-one rewards program which replaced Marriott Rewards, Starwood Preferred Guest, and Ritz-Carlton Rewards.  Compared to other programs, in my opinion, Marriott Bonvoy offers better than average rewards for paid stays, a strong elite program (but not best overall), best-in-class options for point transfers…

Book now for 2 bedroom suites at 35K points per night: Marriott’s Waterline Marina Resort & Beach Club, Autograph Collection

I was going to wait until after my March stay to write about this resort, but then I realized that it would be criminal to wait.  This brand new Marriott Autograph Collection property in Florida gets great reviews and it consists entirely of two bedroom suites, each with two bathrooms, a kitchen, and a living room.  Best of all, it costs only 35K points per night if you book before March 5 2019.  Starting March…

Success: stacking 4th night free for 50% off

Later this year, the Citi Prestige 4th night free will essentially become dead to me. That’s because starting in September, you will no longer be able to make bookings through the Prestige Concierge but will rather have to book through (or via the ThankYou portal’s phone number). This is a huge change as it will eliminate opportunities like an experiment I tried last year that I can finally confirm worked automatically — a stack of…

Lock in current Marriott rates w/ Points Advance after all

In this morning’s post about last-minute things to do in preparation for the full launch of Marriott Bonvoy, I noted that you should probably make reservations for upcoming stays now under the expectation that there may be IT issues for a few days this week (See: Bon Voyage, Marriott. Last-mintue checklist before Bonvoy.). However, I noted that you couldn’t lock in a good deal via points advance on the hotels going up in price on March 5th…
