Other than hotel nights what can I purchase via Marriott that will count to my 20K for the new Ambassador level.

I do not think anyone has found what applies other than room. I have not seen what is: "Qualified Spending"
Here's some salient points from the T&C:
1st: They only count for "stays" (a little sneaky caveate is that in order for a stay to count, it must be at a qualifying rate):
4.3.e. Marriott Bonvoy Ambassador Elite Membership Benefits. In addition to all of the benefits Titanium Elite Members receive, Elite Members who reach 100 Qualifying Nights and $20,000 U.S. dollars in qualifying spend annually based on Qualifying Charges earned on Stays in a Qualifying Period (does not include Qualifying Charges made in advance for stays in the year following the Qualifying Period such as for pre-paid stays) are eligible to receive the following benefits:
2nd: They do include "incidental spend"
2.1.b. Qualifying Charges. “Qualifying Charges” are:
i. Charges incurred during a stay in a guest room at a Participating Property by a Member on his/her folio and up to two (2) additional guest rooms, including, without limitation, charges for:
A. Qualifying Rates for Stays;
B. Food and beverages (excluding alcoholic beverages where prohibited by law) and may exclude charges incurred at outlets that are not managed or operated by the Participating Property;
C. Direct-dialed in-room telephone and direct-dialed in-room fax;
D. In-room movies and video games;
There are a few other caveates to review in the T&C, but the above list is pretty much inclusive.
Hope that helps. Cheers!
I called Marriott and asked about a rental car. They said yes it would be included if I was staying at the hotel. However as far as I can tell it did not count and that aligns to the above T&C.
