Whether you’re new to the Marriott Rewards® community or a seasoned veteran, understanding your earning opportunities can help you get the most out of the program.


To start, your stays at more than 3,500 participating Marriott hotels worldwide, including our luxury partner The Ritz-Carlton, earn up to 10 points or 2 air miles per dollar. Discover how much you’ll earn at each brand and how many miles your flights and nights can earn you with more than 30 participating airlines.


Since most of us aren’t staying in a hotel each night, Marriott Rewards offers you opportunities to earn in your everyday with the Marriott Rewards Premier Credit Card. Insiders member nhtraveler explains the benefits of the card, including earning points—and Elite night credits—with daily purchases.


If you’re planning a wedding, meeting or event, your earnings can add up with Rewarding Events, offering 3 points or 1 mile per dollar (maybe that super-long guestlist isn’t such a bad thing). Plus, you’ll have access to special promotions, including MegaBonus, throughout the year, helping you build your balance quickly and easily. And, if you find you’re a few points short for an upcoming redemption, you can also purchase up to 50,000 points a year.
