Below, I outline the main ways in which to earn and accumulate Marriott Rewards points. Read about how we earned a ton of Marriott Rewards points on our stay at the Atlantis.
1. Visit a Marriott Resort and spend $
Marriott Rewards members earn (depending on the brand of Marriott hotel) five to ten points for every eligible dollar spent at Marriott Resorts. These dollars can be spent on hotel stays, and at times, even on spa and restaurant charges even if you are not staying at the hotel. (Exceptions apply). You can also earn ten Marriott Rewards points per dollar on stays at Marriott’s Partner, Ritz Carlton Resorts. Marriott Rewards Elite members earn a bonus points on base points. Silver members earn a 20% point bonus, Gold members earn a 25% point bonus and Platinum members earn a 50% point bonus.
