Marriott Extends Free Night Awards

Great news for all Marriott Bonvoy members! Marriott announced that they extended the expiry of eligible Free Night Awards and Bonvoy points. Starting May 6, members who had a free night award with an original expiration date in 2020, or which will expire before January 2, 2022, will now be able to redeem it through January 3, 2022. The free night award extension applies to free night awards received as an annual choice benefit, promotion, or a co-brand credit card benefit. Free night awards with an original expiration date prior to 2020 will not be eligible for the additional extension. Members do not need to take any action in order to extend their free night award, Marriott automatically updated the account with these extensions on May 6, 2021.

Also, back in February Marriott Bonvoy paused points expiration through August 1, 2021. Now they announced they will further extend this through March 31, 2022. At that time, points will only expire if the account has been inactive for at least 24 months. With this new update, Marriott Bonvoy members will have more time to use their points and free nights awards, and we might see other brands introduce similar extensions!
